I've made a few cookie bouquets before, but would now really like to start marketing them in my town. My questions is.....what do some of you use to put the bouquets in? I've used anything from pretty flower pots to baskets (both with Styrofoam inside to stick the cookie sticks into & then covered the styrofoam with pretty tissue).
My problem is that I do not do enough high volume to order anything bulk. However I'm worried that any pretty pots or baskets would not be there again when I go back to the store to purchase them. I don't want to take pictures of my bouquets & then deliver something that looks different to the customer. Anybody have a good ideas for a pretty "casing" rather than just a plain terra cotta flower pot? I need something that I can re-create over & over & know I can always purchase. Thanks!
You could use plain gift bags, I think walmart sells them for like .75 or something. Or go to the dollarstore and pick up some there. Our dollar store sells 3 for $1.00
Well you could use plain plastic flower pots and cover them with wrapping paper or several layers of colored cellophane. Then you could easily recreate a past design, or customize it to the customer's occasion.
I've even painted the outside of a terra cotta with something special to the person getting the bouquet. Just be sure to set it outside to dry very well and air the fumes. (Learned THAT the hard way!)
