I'm doing my first craft fair in a couple of weeks with cookies, and I was wondering if anyone has any ideas as far as display? I have all these great ideas of what kinds of designs I want to make, but I have no idea how I think I'm going to set them up so they're not just laying flat on the table like lumps, or crammed in bowls. icon_confused.gif They're going to be individually packaged, of course... Any ideas?!

Hi! For my last bridal fair, I put some of the cookies on those little easels that you can find at the fabric or craft store.
My MIL recently gave me a mini "tree" painted white, no leaves, just branches. I'm going to cut down some of the branches and hang cookies on them, wrapped with ribbon, of course. The bottom is in an unbreakable plant pot. I think it'll make a neat centerpiece for the table and really grab peoples' attention.
Good luck to you!

Buy a grapevine cone, and tie your wrapped cookies onto it. VERY cute and eye-catching!

Aah ok, those are great ideas! With some varying height on my table too, I think it'll look good.

GeminiRJ - I've never heard of a grapevine cone before, but I googled it. Where would I find something like that, do you know?!

Thanks!!

I bought mine from a "Garden Ridge" store. I've also seen them at a local craft store. You could always try lawn and garden stores, or a local florist's shop. The finished presentation is quite impressive!
