Even if you're not expecting a big crew for tomorrow's Thanksgiving festivities, you're probably going to have to do some entertaining at some point this holiday season.
Stan Hithersay of Bed Bath and Beyond is here to help!

Let's start with a fun trend for entertaining.  It's called a cookie exchange party.  Cookies are one of the best parts of the holiday season! If you don't want to spend days in the kitchen during the holidays making a dozen different varieties of cookies, there's a simple solution--host a cookie exchange with friends and family. Each person makes one big batch of cookies, and after a festive few hours of swapping treats, every guest walks out with a wide variety of cookies to enjoy all season long.

Things to Remember:
- Plan your cookie exchange for early in the season.
- Decide how many cookies each person will take home.
- Ask everyone to RSVP with what cookie they are bringing. For cookie recipe ideas visit: www.bedbathandbeyond.com/holiday
- Decide if you're providing the packing materials.
- Offer a brunch, lunch or hors d'oeuvres.
- Plan your party drinks.
- Set it up stylishly and make pretty display cards.
- Keep the kids busy.
