… and also for Costco, where Mr. Plumeria and I ended up buying them. We got a few hundred, so each guest will get one of these buttery, flaky treats (though by the time I’m through with them we might be a just a few short… 😉 they’re yummy; what can I say?). We’re planning to pass these out directly after the ceremony, as our guests are exiting the church. The reception venue is a very short drive away, but just the same, we thought it would be nice to give each person a little edible token of thanks to tide them over ’til the actual meal. Heart shape = bonus. 🙂
Another check off the To-Do list made this past weekend… packaging up these babies. When I had the invitations run at the press, I asked the printer whether there was any extra “waste” room on the press sheet, which, if I could use it, would essentially be an extra item printed for free, using the same custom inks and paper I’d specified for the invites. When she told me there was just a strip about 2″x8″ my mind raced ahead, trying to think of what I could make to use up the space besides the obvious (uh, wedding bookmark, anyone?). Here’s what I came up with: a fold-over tab for the cookies. Cookies — placed individually in small, waxed glassine food bags and folded down twice; tabs — scored and folded in half and stapled over the tops of the bags.
And on the other side, taking into account the distribution time of the cookies: directions from the church to the reception site. Ulterior motive for cookie revealed: easy access to directions should, theoretically, help everyone get to the reception site super speedily so it starts on time… right? Hahaha!
