Cookies and celebrations go together. That's all there is to it. There's so many things to do with cookies for graduations, and who doesn't smile a little wider when they get a cookie?! Here's a few things we've done with cookies for our clients recently . . .
Cookies for a Kindergarten Graduation Breakfast . . .
There's actually a funny story behind this picture. These were done for Hailey's school. At the beautiful breakfast her Kindergarten teacher gave for the graduates and their parents, she mentioned that the cookies came from my store. My crazy girl bursts out with "Yes, but I don't like the sugar cookies, I like the other ones better, so I'm giving my cookie to my daddy." My hubby told me I had a deer in the headlights look on my face. Only it wasn't because of what she said, because after all, I do know her favorites. It was because on a metal tray, on a counter at the shop, were a dozen beautifully frosted sugar cookies with Hailey's picture on them. I had planned to make up a bouquet to give her as a surprise after graduation. And now she was announcing to everyone that she didn't even want one! This is my life, but fortunately I'm a quick thinker. I added in some of her "favorite flavors" to the bouquet, and encouraged her to give the picture cookies to her friends and take her favorites home. She was happy, her friends were happy, and I was just giggling. That's my girl.
These cookies were done with variations of the school logo and mascot. We made up eight-cookie centerpieces, which were placed on the tables at a special luncheon for the graduates.
