I have been asked to supply cookies for the Teacher Lunchon during Fall Break (Teacher Conferences). I plan on packaging the cookies in individual bags and a cute paper label topper. What I am unsure of is the presentation. Since they are individually wrapped, do I use a platter, or in a basket, etc? I want them to be nicely displayed for the lunchon, but not just stacked on the table. Do I even need to do this, or just give them(the PTA) the box of cookies? I'm so confused!

How do you present your cookies for an affair?
How do you deliver your cookies to the school/customer?

If they're eating the cookies for dessert I wouldnt go to the extra trouble and expense of individually wrapping and labeling the cookies. I arranged mine on a tray and stuck a couple of bus. cards discreetly in the corner when I did mine for teacher apprec. Its the fresh fruit platter in my pictures.
If I'm delivering cookies to a customer depending on what it is...if its a bouquet, I just hand it to them, if its party favor cookies, they are bagged, tagged and boxed. If its a platter, I wrap neatly and usually tie a ribbon across it with my bus. card.

If you can find a grapevine cone of a decent size, you can tie the bagged cookies onto it, starting at the bottom of the cone and working your way up. It will create a unique presentation, and would make a beautiful centerpiece. One bakery (I can't remember the name) supplies a small scissors with each cone so that the ribbons can be snipped and everyone can take home a cookie.
