Cookie Swap Party Ideas

Thinking about a get together with your gals or a creative + fun cookie swap party? First off, a chic outfit is a must. We love the idea of one fun statement piece – this Embellished Striped Skirt is SO FUN (and only $58!!). Perfect to pair with a comfy black sweater and some fun boots. We love that carries Katy Perry’s shoe collection! How rad are these black glitter booties (they come in silver as well!)? Or these black boots with the metallic heel? Done and done! Maybe pants are more your jam? We love this Belted Bell Sleeve Jumpsuit by Calvin Klein – and would pair with these Burgundy Suede Heeled Booties with the cutest bow detail! If you have an outfit, maybe mix up your jewelry a bit! We love these Rhinestone Embellished Chain Drop Earrings as well as this cute initial necklace.


As for the party elements? Cute mugs for hot cocoa + plates are a MUST. This Marble Serving Platter is perfect for your cookies. Chic coupe glasses for sparkling wine and these emerald green Moscow Mule mugs are perfect for some cranberry mules – one of our fave holiday cocktails! Metallic Bottle Brush trees and Faux Birch Logs are the perfect decor elements along with this Creamy Felt Christmas Wreath. Oh, and your cookies? This Rolling Baking Pin will help you win for best cookie details!

Perhaps you’re thinking of something more along the lines of cocktails with your favorite couples, a picture-worthy cheeseboard, and a sprinkling of glam? Yep, we’ve got you covered there! We love getting a bit more dressed up for this type of party and are LOVING this Red Flower Fit and Flare Dress! Pair it with this chic Rose Gold Heels. Or perhaps sequins are more your style? We have our eye on this Embellished Sequin Jumpsuit and would pair it with these Suede Black Booties by Katy Perry. Just need a little something to add to your fave LBD? How about this Horseshoe Pendant Necklace? Love that it works yearlong as well…

Find your favorite cocktail recipes, shake things up a bit with this Hammered Copper Cocktail Shaker, and then pour cocktails into these vintage inspired Pink Highball Glasses (Set of 4 is only $28.99!) We also love making some Sangria in advance and serving it in this lovely Pitcher (which also comes with 4 glasses for just $12.99!) Serve a fun cheese plate on this Evergreen Trees Slate Cheeseboard and hang this Snowy Fir Wreath with Clear Lights up for some festive decor!
