I want to create a "thank you" cookie arrangement, but would prefer not to do a traditional bouquet... mostly because I'm new to this and not sure if I want to deal with the sticks. Does anyone have a suggestion for an arrangement that doesn't require sticks, like the grapevine tree, but would only need about 12 cookies or so to look complete?

Thanks!

what about making a tree out of heavy guaged wire?? like a tree in winter with no leaves, just branches? Then hand the cookies on each individual branch

I can't find the thread, but someone was asking about bouquets. DianeLM responded that she glues the bagged cookies to the sticks. That might work for you. You might want to send her a PM.

Here is a company that sells wire tree and umbrella forms. You could hang cookies on these. Don't know how soon you would need them. Have you checked your local craft store for ideas? A florist might have something that would work.

Thanks for the ideas!

I ended up finding an orchid trellis support for $5 for two. If I put one in a pot like in the picture, I can hang cookies from the trellis bars and give it a "bouquet" feel.

It's similar to this one: http://www.smithandhawken.com/catalog/product.jsp;jsessionid=EMGG4BDBHQDLQCTLNKFFAFQKNNVIWUPU?productId=prod94449&categoryId=cat430015p
