"Bee Well" Bouquet
I gave a small thank you bouquet to a neighbor last summer for throwing our newspapers on the porch while we were away on vacation. She remembered the arrangement and wanted to send a larger one to a friend battling cancer. The combination of bumble bees and daisies seemed cheerful and much more reasonable than flowers!
When assembling a bouquet, I like to wrap the individual cookies, so they stay fresh for the recipient. Because of the rain and wind we were experiencing today, I also put a basket bag over the entire arrangement. This bouquet contained ten cookies: bees, a hive, daisies and a message heart. If I know the recipient, it is easier to design a bouquet in his or her favorite color or to match a hobby or special interest. They do make great gifts without requiring a trip to the mall!
