I've done this before although not for Christmas. Whenever someone in the family is pregnant, or getting married, or graduating (something along those lines) I'll send 3 cookies, 2 decorated in the theme, and one with a message on it like "Congrats!" or "Best of Luck!". I'm sure your family would love it because it's baked with love!
Oh my gosh Flowerpot..that sounds like an excellent idea! I love it. I have only done one set of cookies and they came out okay (I guess) but now I have an incentive to practice to perfect them! Wonderful idea! Thanks for sharing
My husband and I were planning his 50th birthday party and decided to send a cookie (in his likeness) along with the invitation. He was doing all the cooking so the cookie was a chef. Everyone who received a cookie invitation was so surprised. They loved the idea. Each cookie was bubblewrapped and then put in a mailing box typically used for sending VHS tapes. Every cookie arrived perfectly.
I am thinking of baking some cookies (not sure what design yet) for Christmas, taking a picture, and making our own Christmas cards. Kind of like the type of cards people send with pictures of their families. At least this way you don't have the expense of the boxes.
This is a great idea for my ladies cookie decorating party I'm having for the first time this year.
Imagine getting an invitation with a cookie!
I've been trying to think of an unforgettable invitation and this certainly fills the bill.....
