I usually participate in cookie exchanges around Christmas time, but this year I will be trying something a little different. I have decided that I would like to make a Mother's Day Cookie Bouquet containing different types of cookies, but would rather only make one type of cookie. Therefore, I will be hosting a cookie on a stick exchange!
For the exchange, I have asked each person to bring:
- Two dozen of their favorite cookies. (A dozen of which will need to be on individual sticks)
- A container in which to arrange their bouquet, filled almost to the top with rice. (a vase, cookie jar or flower pot)
- Ribbon of choice
- Clear cellophane
We will then wrap each cookie-on-a-stick with cellophane and tie it with ribbon directly underneath the cookie.
Next, we will arrange the cookies into each of our containers
The Mother's Day Cookie Bouquets will then be complete!
I chose to ask each person to bring their favorite cookie rather than a specific type. If you would like to have a particular theme for the bouquets, that would be fun also. For instance, you can ask your guests to bring cookies with a garden theme (flowers, leaves, butterfly shaped etc.), drop cookies, cookie cutter cookies, biscotti, chocolate flavored and so on.
