My friend, Des, recently got engaged and was looking for a fun way to ask her bridesmaids to be in the wedding. She came across a sugar cookie and asked if I could do something similar.
Obviously I said, “Sure! I would love to.” Planning and ideas immediately began flooding my brain.
I worked on some examples and sent them her way. In the end, we decided on a black dress with simple details – a white sash with a small “pearl” and a black ruche to add some interest.
I knew we needed to add something to the cookie that indicated who the cookie was actually from (small detail!). Des came up with:
Save the Date
Desiree & Ralph
I thought it was a great idea. I love how it wasn’t sappy, rather a cute nudge to who was sending it.
The final touch was wrapping the mailer (aka the box, which I found here) with a ribbon and a custom made tag.
I thought they turned out great and hope Des and her bridesmaids loved them too. And the concept could be used for so many things – to tell parents of a pregnancy, to invite guests to a small dinner party, to wish a friend “Happy Birthday!” The list goes on and on.
Thanks Des for asking me to work on this… it was so much fun!
