Back from vacation

We are back from vacation! At this time of year ordering cookies and sending cookie gifts slows down. The main gifts people give at this time are “Get Well” gifts and “Thank You” gifts. So, we gave all of our associates vacation and closed for two weeks. The whole crew scattered around the country. We went to Alaska. We took a cruise through the inside passage going from Vancouver to Anchorage in 7 days. Along the way we stopped at Ketchikan, Juneau, and Skagway.

Alaska is an interesting place and a lot different than we are used to. For one thing the night was total darkness for only 2 or 3 hours per night. The people were wonderful, so friendly and they love the out-of-doors. We saw lots of wild life, interesting glaciers, and enjoyed nature. An Alaskan cruise is one of those “must do” things you need to put on your list to experience before you die.

Parties and Cookies for Parties

In my last note to you I mentioned I was too busy to blog and then went on to say that the spring cookie gift season was slower than the winter. So, you may ask, "Why were you too busy if spring is the slow season?" That's a good question. The answer is parties. We have been doing lots of parties. That is both trays of cookies for other people's business and personal parties and cookie parties that we conducted.

For cookie party trays, as always, the big hit has been our unique lemon bar. It's flavor is slightly sweet and very tart. Right now we are only delivering them locally, but I am still looking for a way to safely deliver them nationally.

The other party activity we are doing is children and adult cookie parties. At these parties we do a demonstration of cookie making, give baking tips, and have lots and lots of cookies to sample and take home. The difference between the children's and adult's cookie parties is that the kids "get their hands dirty" inventing and baking their own cookie. If you are interested in finding out the cost of having your own cookie party give me a call (816) 822-0356.
