I have a client who would like a cookie bouquet for her mom's 60th b-day, I don't know these people at all but she gave me 100 and 1 pieces of info regarding her mom for me to try and work into the cookies. I am going to do 2 dozen cookies. Any thoughts for ideas with this one, I am drawing a blank. I usually do a theme, color, valentines flowers etc but she wants it to be "special"
does she have any hobbies or interests that you could incorporate? what about a current or former profesion?
To take several ideas that don't relate wont give the boquet any "cohesiveness" If there are any, take 4-6 related items that cover a spectrum and work with that, the container it goes in should also add to the theme if at all possible (even if it means painting a flower pot).
Yes it is hard when there are so many "things" the client wants to try to fit into the basket. I think that I can do many things and just have to stay within a few colors though so that all the cookies I will do will seem to blend even though there will be a large variety of cookies.
I'll post pics when they are done
It sounds really neat...what was on the list of interests???
Ok so she is turning 60, favorite color is green, likes winter activities, is a capricorn, likes animals, is a grandmother those kind of things. I am still putting it all together, I have until the 8th of December
I think you would be fine doing a mixture of cookies. I think you should stay with bold colors like green, red, yellow, blue, and orange. You might look for a cute container that has balloons and streamers and stuff like that. You could even mix in lots of curly ribbon to match....I bet she is going to love it.
