Cookie Bouquets?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Do any of you sell cookie bouquets? How much do you charge for them? For example a terra cotta pot with about 5-6 cookies fully decorated. I'm thinking of doing this and any tips and/or advice is greatly appreciated.

THANKS IN ADVANCE,

I sell cookie bouquets. In my area I am pretty cheap . . . $22.00 for a bouquet of six large cookies or $18.00 for 3 cookies in a terra cotta pot (sometimes the pot is decorated or painted to match the bouquet I am making. I place florists foam in the pot to hold the sticks in the position that I want them and then fill it with crinkle cut paper stuffing (found at craft stores) to cover the foam. I wrap the entire bouquet in large cellophane bags and tie it with a decorative bow. You can see some of my bouquets in my photos.

Do you put the 6 large cookies in a terra cotta pot too?

My cookies are on sticks which I insert into the florist foam so that they stand up like flowers

All of the places where I live, charge $50 or more for those cookie bouquets of that size. The only difference is it is a brightly painted pot

Sometimes I paint the pot, depending on the theme. The ones below were what I did last Christmas. I was even cheaper back then, I was just starting out! This pot was ALOT of work so this year I will charge extra for the special pot, otherwise I will just paint it red.

Yeah all they do is paint it, not all that decoration. They just charge a lot. The cookies are really thick too. Like 1/2 an inch or more. But still. You could charge that much.

How big are your cookies? I'm having a hard time finding large cookie cutters. I'd like to have them 4-5". I just ordered some from the cookiecuttershop.com and they are all about 3-4" and I'm sending a few back because they are even smaller. Maybe I'm just used to some of my Giant ones that I have....they are 7-8" and make these others look small.
