I can't believe its that time again! Cookie Exchange weekend!

This is the third year I've been hosting a cookie exchange and I look forward to it all holiday season long. Its such a fun way to get together with some girlfriends. It is alot of work getting ready to bake dozens and dozens of cookies, but you leave with such a fun variety of cookies. Its truly a labour of love!

Here's a few pics from the party!

I try to serve a few savory items like mini sandwiches, veggies and dip, fruit and chips n dip.

Our Sprinkle Confetti Cookies

Eggnog Cookies

I served the little kids up with these red flower plates with a cute little reindeer napkins. Its simple, but adds a cute decorative touch!

Spearmint cookies

Mint Shortbread cookies

Classic Shortbread

I always try to have some prizes to give out. Everyone works so hard on baking cookies and it's something fun we get to talk about during the party. I usually do: Prettiest cookie, Fan favorite and Most Creative. This year I had cookie cutters, sprinkles and mugs as prizes. 

And of course I had to have something to give the kids too. I wrapped up cookie cutters and little sparkly bracelets for the to take home. Simple, but festive!

CHRISTMAS DECOR - THE HOLIDAYS favorite time of the year by far.

With a new baby in the house, the holidays seem to be passing by so quickly and slowly at the same time. Night time nursing on the couch is that much sweeter with the glow of the Christmas tree.

Each year I also decorate the girls room with their pink trees and they love having it in their room!

And I love having the kids in their matching jammies all month long!

Hope you've enjoyed a few ways we've decorated our home for the holidays!
