The great thing
about hosting a cookie exchange party is that you can call on your
friends to help. As your home fills with wonderful aromas of these
baking delights, you can set up a beautiful table to present them
mind that the focal point of your table should be the cookies,
cover the table in light-coloured muslin.
an assortment of cake stands. Vintage stands work really well.
If you are a collector of cake stands, this is a perfect occasion

the cookies be enjoyed at the party, but it is also important
to ensure that you send some home with your guests. Select inexpensive
wicker baskets, line them with a vintage napkin or a piece of
linen, and then place your cookies within. Wrap the basket with
clear cellophane, do a treatment with a complementary bow and
the cookies are safe to travel home.
