I haven't come across a really nice way (that I like) to present cookies!

I like the cookie bouquets...but not all that much.

I've been using those "chinese food boxes" from Michael's. Around Christmas time, I use the Christmas tins.

Is there another way to present cookies? maybe that I haven't found out about yet??

I'm curious about that too -- I have a couple of demos coming up where they've asked me to come up with a display and the only thing I could think of is the cookie bouquet which I'm not fond of either. Watching and waiting... icon_rolleyes.gificon_biggrin.gif

Have you seen the forum about the cookie tree I love the way the cookies are pesented and you could do that with a wreath as well I hope this helps

Small decorative nesting suitcases.
Themed lunchboxes.
Tie cookies to a small wire trellis in a flower pot. This works well if the cookies are flower shaped.
Upside down hats depending on the theme. (Oriental trading has these pretty cheap)
Make-up cases
Little girls purses
Any plastic toy with a open area like a truck, sand pail etc.
Hope this is helpful

Here's a display I made for the tye dye tee shirt cookies at the DOS recently. How better to display shirts than on a hanger? icon_lol.gif

I do very few of the decorated cookies, mine are mostly home style. This is one display I did last year. Turkeys and (those are supposed to be) kids going back to school.

Honeydukes, THANK YOU for posting the link to earlier thread. I was able to use bakinccc's idea of the foil pan with clear lid, it was Perfect for presenting cookies for my new colleague. I will definitely use that often. thumbs_up.gif

hi momtospunky, i don't sell my cookies and i don't profess to be an expert in the area of displaying, but i am always looking for inexpensive ways to put my cookies in for family and i have found that you can sometimes find those tin pails with designs (really cutes ones out there) on clearance or even just on sale and i fill it with shredded paper to match, i put my cookies in bags with ribbon and just stand them upright in there and i don't need to put beans at the bottom or anything cuz they aren't on sticks. it really comes out looking super cute and pretty. have a great day!!! icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gif

if I'm packing them individually i do it like this with a paper tag stapled on and a coordinating ribbon
if I'm doing them (not decorated, or ) in a group I put them in a decorative box like theses
