Today I hosted a cookie swap in my new neighborhood. I didn't know a soul to invite, but found a page on Facebook where the neighbors come together to talk, sell, etc with each other so I took a deep breath and asked if anyone wanted to participate in the swap and I got a few takers!!
Using Facebook made the whole process easier. First I asked for interested people, then once I knew there was an interest, I created an invite and uploaded it on Facebook. I created a board on Pinterest for those who said they wanted to participate but didn't have any ideas. I checked in on the group from time to time.
A couple of days before the swap I cleaned up the house and then I made spritz cookies the night before. Packaged them up and made a few snacks (I focused on nonsweets) Each swapper brought some to share, so those went on our snack table.
We separated the piles and everyone took home a great assortment of cookies! I know that I want to do it again next year!!
