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"

Thanks

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).

Hey guys,

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

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. icon_smile.gif
