A friend of mine – one of my college roommates, in fact – recently contacted me to see if I could help her office out with a thank you basket. They normally send flowers, but Cait thought “Who wants flowers? Cookies are so much better!”
After showing a couple of people my blog, it was a go.
Cait and I discussed colors and cookie shapes (is it still “discussed” if it’s through email? Well, you get the point). I suggested fall colors. I know, I’m big on that these days. But, have you looked outside? If you live in the mid-Atlantic we are in prime fall leave season, people. Sorry to my readers in California. Perpetually green. Bummer.
Where was I? Oh, fall colors. Right.
Then I sent Cait a couple of options for the cookies. She decided on…
I will say, I now understand why cookie basket companies use sticks. There is clearly not a lot of height differential in my little basket here. That said, I still think it turned out pretty darn cute. And I love how the basket mimics the fall feel.
Hopefully they were the perfect thank you. And who needs flowers when we have these leaves?!?
