Right. Like the first thing I want is a SOUVENIER of my husband/child's funeral sitting in my house!
And with my brown thumb, it's a death sentence for the poor plant!
I was able to convince the secretary that decorated cookies would not be unseemly as a condolence gift. I suggested we get a nice, big basket and place the cookies in the center, stuck into a block of floral foam. Surrounding that will be an assortment of fruit. I think she was just so set on the fruit thing that once it was added to the cookie bouquet, she "got with the program". The added bonus will be that the boss's wife is on a diet, so we'll be including something that she can eat without feeling guilty. I'm thinking the fruit will add balast to the basket and keep it from tipping over....another bonus!
So it's home from work tonight to start baking and decorating! I'll be sure to post pictures.
