I wanted to host a exchange party this holiday with some of my favorite moms! Here are some of my holiday booze exchange party ideas. To be honest…I can do without cookies and ornaments (although I do love these things!). The holidays can be very stressful, especially for moms; so what better way to support each other than with a boozy gift exchange! Oriental Trading Co. was kind enough to partner with Ella and Annie to make my holiday booze exchange warm, inviting and fun.
How cool is this room at the Kathrine’s Biergarten Pub in Rocklin? The beer bottle chandelier was absolutely perfect! The extra long wooden table with benches fit our party of 13 just right. I placed a cute paper table runner down the middle of the table, it is from Oriental Trading’s new Christmas line Mod & Merry. I also used the Mod and Merry centerpiece, it was super easy to put together.
Each place setting had an adorable favor box filled with a clear glass ornament for each guest to decorate and take home. I filled clear paint bucket containers with mini markers, colored pencils, sharpies and assorted washi tape. The washi tape and sharpies we used to design our custom ornaments.
Each guest could also color their own DIY Christmas card. Aren’t they pretty? Each set contained a few different designs. They used the mini markers and colored pencils to color in their Christmas card.
I sprinkled the table with holiday kisses for the ladies to snack on throughout dinner. We had a delicious German buffet of locally made sausage, schnitzelfingers, homemade pretzels with a spread of mustards and so much more! What I loved most was the spiced German wine, Glühwein! It is served warm in a mug and absolutely to die for.
At the end of the night was the BOOZE exchange! There were so many wonderful gift baskets and bottles of liquor. Everyone was lucky and went home with a thoughtful gift.
Fun was had by all! I have to say that this was my first exchange party and I am so glad my friend Laura gave me the idea of an alcohol gift exchange. We each had to draw a number and the number determined what order we picked our gift in. The gift could be stolen up to two times! In the end we all really did end up with something nice to take home.
