And like you said, she totally came around to the idea, which means she recognizes a good thing when she sees it! thumbs_up.gif



I could tell from your comments that you weren't dumping on her. And I'm glad you know what "plastic thingees" I was talking about! If anyone from Omaha is wondering about the store where I purchased the sun catcher, it was Mangelsen's.

I just saw your cookies and they are absolutely wonderful. They don't look in poor taste at all! I thought you had posted this topic today, and when I saw the cookies I thought wow that was quick!

Wow, your cookies are gorgeous!!! I, and my kids would've definately appreciated the thought and all the work that went into them, when we were greiving for my daughter.
Great work!

They are lovely cookies and I'm sure the family will appreciate the time and sentiment that went into them.

Here's a photo of the finished basket. Please keep in mind that I've never arranged anything like this, so be kind!

On a "shake-the-head-moment", I was given $20 to buy a basket and the fruit and a card. Whatever was left over, I was to keep as a thank-you for doing the cookies. I spent $26, and skipped the card. So if any of my co-workers accuses me of doing the cookies as a way to get out of contributing actual cash, I will smack them!

Your cookie basket will be the one that the family remembers. Flowers for sympathy all start to look the same after a while and in a few days they go into the garbage. I remember when my dad passed and believe me - it the food that people brought that we all remember.

I think is great. I would have loved to get something like that for my family when my son passed away last july. We did have some plants given to us, and I only have 1 of them left. I also have a black thumb when it comes to indoor plants.
My dds went out and bought some of Bob's favorite snacks to put in the kitchen for everyone to snack on during his vistation[little debbie swiss cake rolls and reeses cups, along with Dr Pepper] Plus we had several people brought casseroles and some fried chicken[ a store deli donated a bucket when my dds went to buy them]
When my cousin was killed a few years ago I baked a big box of cupcakes and brought them. There were a lot of kids at that one. They loved them.
My sympathies to all who have lost a loved one.

It turned out wonderful, Gemini! What a fabulous idea and you made it work so well! I love the basket you put together and your cookies are, of course, perfect icon_wink.gif

The basket is gorgeous and so thoughtful!! Not too showy, not too skimpy. Just the right touch on all ends. Kudos to you!!!
