I just got asked by my really good friend to do a cookie bouquet for her nephews wedding shower in August. The problem is instead of wedding cookies, they want fall cookies. Such as leaves, mums, and sunflowers. this is my first paying order and I am really nervous, I found a mum cookie cutter but I have no idea how to even decorate it. The sons mother is also an interior designer so I really feel the pressure here. If anyone has any ideas or has decorated a mum cookie I would really appreciate any advice. Thank-you in advanced.

chrysanthemums look like daisie. I read that some daisies are part of chrysanthemum family. I searched the galleries for chrysanthemum and tfound 3 or 4 pages of cookies. you can also search for daisies. I have seen beautiful daisy cookies and my favorites are by TracyLH, her cookies are so beautiful.

Do a search for fall cookies. When I did I found 414 pages of different types of fall cookies. I'm sure you can find some ideas from them.

another suggestion is to look at clip art images of the flowers or leaves that you want to use and base your design on a picture that you like.

I did a cookie bouquet last Thanksgiving using leaf a pumpkin and acorn cookie cutters. Decorating the leaves different fall colors made it pretty. I stuck them in a huge cornacopia I got from Hobby Lobby. You can see in my gallery. Good Luck!

Thank-you everyone for your ideas, I have been searching and hopefully I come up with a bouquet that will look great and the bride and her family will like.
