Yes, I know, I am posting this one day after Christmas icon_biggrin.gif, but I have been asked by several of my customers what I will offer for this holiday, and my first thought was Bouquets. My idea is offer 4 different styles of heart shaped cookie bouquets, designed with RI, and completed with a container, bow, and wrapped in a cello bag. Does anyone on CC do this? What are your prices? Can you share pics?


I am thinking of charging $35 for 9 cookies, all decorated and finished. Delivery is $10 more.


Any thoughts or suggestions?


Thanks in advance.

Nothing particularly coherent but I wanted you to know this got me thinking. Little slow on the uptake though...

AAre you considering cookie pops - like a proper bouquet? Or are you just wrapping the cookies in cello bags individually and selling in a box? You have me thinking now....

A proper bouquet, complete with cello bags, bows, and a cute container to hold them in. I have seen several on the internet, and would love to offer something similar.

I am going to be offering bouquets for Valentine's Day. Much like yours with the bags, ribbon, bow, container. I think I will be doing mine with a dozen cookies. I'm not quite sure what shapes...of course the heart is the main one but I may also put a message cookie in mine..have to take a few days and think about it. I know I will be charging at least $30.00...not sure if that will be my final price.  I don't have any pictures to post right now but maybe in a week I will have a sample of one that I can post to show you.

What is population of your town?  I have not had much success with decorated cookies where I live for valentine's day--- pop. 200,000.  It seems that chocolate is big thing here.  I specialize in decorated cookies at a bakery but wonder how you get clients to put out for whole bouquet.  This is a low end demographics.  Do you put up samples and wait for response to do that?

  After close to 2,000 decorated cookies not sure I can even think of decorating valentine cookies.
