A bouquet with a difference!

I celebrated my Birthday yesterday. ( I truly believe we should always celebrate Birthdays, each one we have is a gift, not everyone is so lucky) Imagine my anticipation when a large parcel arrived in the mail from a very special friend and her family. Inside was this 'cookie bouquet'! What a wonderful present and SO yummy!!! I'm rationing myself to a flower a day! The other thing I love about it is that it is a 'disposable' present. I once read an article that suggested unless it was a special gift that 'disposable' presents were best , candles, soaps etc, things that could be used and enjoyed but that wouldn't need a permanent home found for them. This made such a lot of sense that I try to remember it when possible.

Happy birthday! The bouquet is gorgeous - what a wonderful idea. I too like disposable presents - heaven knows I don't need any more 'stuff'! I've just got to get my family trained on the idea.

Your cookie bouquet is wonderful! I, too, think consumable gifts are best! what a great birthday present!

I love those cookie boquets! I got one when I had Jacob.

On the other hand, I have several gift candles that I only used once when we lot electricity - so I had to find spots for them - luckily I have not been gifted soaps/lotions - I generally don't care for the scents.

So there is a glitch to most plans. I want someone to pay for long arming... Now there is a gift that I can use, or cookies, cookies are good too.

Oooooooh happy birthday to you. What an amazing bouquet, although it would probably last just as long as flowers in this house (even less, LOL)
