Christmas on a Budget: Cookie Party

6 Dec

We started a tradition last year of hosting a Christmas Cookie Party for our friends.  This is a fun, inexpensive way to share Christmas together.

My husband and I invite our friends to join us for cookies and Christmas movies.  All we ask them to bring are their favorite Christmas movies and perhaps a favorite cookie recipe.  The party is a few days before Christmas, when most people are off work, and we open our house pretty much all afternoon and evening for people to drop by.

The girls tend to handle the baking...


...while the guys watch Christmas movies (or wrestling...sigh).

However, everyone likes to get in on the decorating.

Everyone who attends is sent home with a bag of cookies.  This is such a fun time for us to hang out with friends and show our love to them at Christmas.

What are some ways you share Christmas with your friends without breaking your budget?
