How do you transport them? They tipped for in the car the last time I made them.
Thanks!

I usually try to find a box that is a little bigger than the base of the bouquet(if it's too tall I just cut it down). Sometimes I put a towel in the box and then the bouquet(just to secure it a little more). Then I try to wedge the box snuggly somewhere in the car. I also use that no-slid cupboard liner material(sorry can't think of the name) and put it under the box or the bouquet base. I find it also better when it wrap the bouquet in clear cellophane. That adds a tiny bit extra stability.

I put them in a gift bag, that helps to stable them. Then all you have to do is grab the bag when turning the corner or just put your purse or something around it to help block it frim tipping. HTH

I wrap the bouquet in a big cello bag and also use the non-slip cupboard liners underneath. Then I just white-knuckle it the whole way and pray it gets there in one piece-I hate delivering cookie bouquets!!

I've actually seat-belted them in! icon_lol.gif But you gotta have a good size container to do this. Otherwise, I use the wedge-the-towel around them thing.

I use a box like this as well, but fill the bottom around the bouquet with crumpled up newspaper.
