Host the cookie swap in the biggest, most open room of your house. You'll need two tables: one for displaying the cookies and another to act as a packing station. On the large table, place platters, serving trays, and napkins. Don't forget name cards for the cookies, these are essential — you wouldn't want a guest who is allergic to peanuts accidentally nibbling on a peanut butter cookie. Place paper boxes, takeout containers, tissue paper, ribbon, and scissors on the smaller table. Light candles and fill a vase with festive flowers. When guests arrive help them find a place for their cookies, then offer them a drink.
