A bunch of bloggers in Auckland, New Zealand got together for a Cookie Swap Party. We each brought a batch of biscuits to share, we sampled all the delicious treats at the party and then got to go home with an assortment of the baked goods.
The party had a Mid-Winter Christmas theme as in New Zealand it is Summer in December and all the Christmas decorations with snow on them and those ugly knitted jumpers are out of place. So, some people had a mid year Christmas celebration during our cooler weather.
Everyone got a cute brown box with red ribbon, paper doilies and a small heart shaped chalk board label to package up cookies to take home in.
What People Ate
Cookies, cookies and more cookies! We had cheese, crackers and popcorn too.
What People Drank
Tea - there was 'Ginger Kiss' and 'Strawberry Pavlova' flavoured tea, as well as iced tea. We also had little Hot Chocolate Shots and there was milk to go with the cookies.
Meeting everyone - we are all bloggers so it was great to catch up in person instead of over a computer screen.
