Can't wait to see it!

Wow, you guys really pack 'em in there! I have to package mine on Friday evening. If you see a desperate plea for help from me on CC, please come to my rescue. LOL!

ok - here it is. It was a big hit. It was so over-the-top girly. I am enclosing a picture of the back so you can see how much room there was left for more cookies.

How do people secure their styrofoam into odd-shaped containers (like baskets) ... is it a lot of hot glue? Then does this make the basket unusable afterwards?

LOVE the tiered styrofoam technique ... thanks for sharing that idea & pictures.

Bonnebouche: That's a gorgeous arrangement. I just love how it looks with the cellophane picks. And the idea of the base it's just incredible. Thanks so much for sharing.

MichelleM- I am doing a really large cookie bouquet for an upcoming graduation. The mom wants "Congratulations Rachel" one letter per cookie on a shamrock shaped cookie, with little shamrocks all around with her school letters and year. I decided that I am going to purchase a small flower box from home depot, line it, styrofoam it, and anchor my cookies. This will be by far the largest Ive made so far!! I love the ideas of the other CCers who posted their pics as well. Some of those baskets are really impressive. I will post mine later this month when the order is due. It should be quite large, since each letter will have to be spelled out clearly, and wont be able to ovelap much of the cookies! Keep us posted on your projects! icon_smile.gif

I decorated last night, actually this morning (until 2 am) and still have to paint the container to look like a bongo drum. I'm having concerns though. I use cookie sticks and they take up more space than skewers. I can't use skewers because they cookie sticks already bend under the weight of the cookie and put the stick in there as far as I can to the top of the cookie! If it doesn't work, then I will stick as many as I can in the container and put the rest nicely on a platter. Heck, CBD only goes up to 12 cookies and then they do their BouTray for more cookies. I don't know why I thought I could do 36! LOL!

Painting container later today and will package either tonight or tomorrow a.m. Thanks guys for all of your suggestions and confidence in me. LOL!

Okay. All went well, but I could only get 33 cookies in the bouquet. I really packed them in there! I'm not happy with how my container came out, but the customer and son knew what it was, so I guess that's all that matters. I will be adding a maximum size bouquet disclaimer to my site soon. LOL! Pic is in my photos.

Thank you. I make my own picks. I buy the rolls of cellophane from Michael's and cut it into squares. I bunch the square up from the middle, wrap it around a skewer and just fasten it with tape. Very easy to do and you can adjust the height of the pick easilly by cutting the skewer if needed.
