I am going to make my first cookie bouquet for my kid's birthday party in a few weeks. What do I need to put in the bucket to hold the sticks up? Should I use a styrofoam ball and then put tissue paper after all cookies are in place? Any advice is greatly appreciated!

Styrofoam or floral foam are great to use. I like to wrap it in a thin layer of tissue paper and then insert it into the container. Then insert the cookies where you like them. After that you can either use tissue paper or shreds to put around the sticks. HTH

The floral foam works great! It's cheaper than the styrofoam, and can be easily trimmed to fit the shape of the container. (Some people make candy dough and use that, so everything is edible.)

Do I need to trim the bag once I tie the ribbon? Or just leave it?

You may also need something to weigh it down. I like using dried kidney beans, inexpensive and food safe.

I agree. Beans are the cheapest means of weighing down your container. Pour some into the bottom and then insert your foam. That way, the cookies (which are top heavy) won't topple over. Enjoy
