Valentine's Day Cookie Swap Party ideas
So about four years before Paula Deen had her popular Holiday Cookie Swap Party special on the Food Network, my friend Stacy did a Valentine's Day Cookie Swap Party. In Georgia. I guess Paula must have heard how fantabulous it was through the peachvine (I made that up!).
Anyhow, we were inspired this year to do a fun Valentine's Day Cookie Swap Party invitation, mainly because we wish we had thrown a Christmas cookie swap party, since Ms Paperlicious can't bake to save her keester. Don't get me wrong, I lovvveee to mix up tasty batters and delicious frostings, but when it comes to the actual baking part of it, it's a total FAIL. I blame it on a mysterious convection oven and bad cookie sheets.
This would be a super cute invitation for a February bridal shower invitation, kids' Valentines birthday invitations or a sweet baby shower idea.
But if I had a Valentines cookie swap party, all of my baking troubles would be over, for a few days anyway!
And I will send them packing with a sweet little goodie bag using these round Valentine gift tags. Or maybe the rectangle Cookie Gift Tags?
Wait, does the host have to bring cookies to a cookie exchange party? Darn it all.
