Custom Cookies: A colorful twist on our retro holiday cookies

I recently worked with Bowen & Company to create custom cookies for their holiday gifts. In order to reflect the company’s branding, they suggested using one of our retro holiday designs and switching up the colors. I topped it off with a matching green raffia ribbon and they provided the hang tags with tailored messages so each cookie was a personalized favor. I think they came out great, but you can check them out for yourself below.  I’ve included our original design, the company’s updated design and the final product with the hang tags (this color is off a little since we took it at night). 

For custom designs, we can change the colors of most of our designs and provide a free proof over email.

Decorated Cookies: holiday van Gogh gumdrops

Like many people, the hubby and I hop in the car on Christmas Eve and start our Christmas road trip which includes stops in Connecticut and Syracuse.  This year, I packed up the car with some our holiday van Gogh gumdrops so the kids could make their very own decorated cookies.  The pack includes one dozen cookies, ten markers with edible ink as well as cello bags and bows so kids can tie them up and give the gourmet decorated cookies as gifts. 

You can check out the coloring fun below.   We also snuck in a photo of kiddies from Iowa thanks to Allison at the Goji Gourmetwho placed an order over the holidays for her niece and nephew.    Special thanks to a few little van Goghs including Kayla, Hannah, Audra, Max and Ella for their cookie works of art!

P.S. My SIL had a great idea to do a set of van Gogh gumdrops with Valentine’s Day images….stay tuned!

Decorated Cookies: Gumdrop goes Retro
When I first commissioned Ashley from Rippke Design to create designs for our holiday decorated cookies, I gave her a few guidelines, but nothing too specific, so I was excited to see what should would share with us.  When she sent me an email with a BUNCH of options for our gourmet decorated cookies I was so thrilled.  They were perfect!

From a design perspective, the designs all worked cohesively to offer as bundle and I loved the throwback retro style of the design.    These unique decorated cookies have been a huge hit so far.  In fact, I’ve worked with some clients to customize this design to create custom cookies that matches their own branding.  (more on that in another post!)

Decorated Cookies: Holiday “tweet” Cookies are here!

Our holiday decorated cookies have arrived!   While I love all the new designs, my favorite of the bunch is our new tweet hoiday series designed by Joan at Bitsy Creations. We take hints for our designs from what we see in home decor as well as fashion and birds are definitely at the top of the list this year.  We figured it would make sense to translate this popular symbol into unique decorated cookies.  

We’ve included two options including a holiday design and a Hanukkah design, however, all of the text can be customized on these gourmet decorated cookies. Anyone who knows me, will tell you how much I am not a fan of clutter, which is why gourmet decorated cookies are the perfect gift in my book!

Custom Cookies: Come on everybody, let’s ride the train!

I recently worked with Carmen to create custom cookies for her upcoming wedding. She had a very specific design in mind for their cookie wedding favors : a modern yet whimsical design of Carmen and her then fiance Michael riding a train (Michael is a big fan of trains!) using the colors sage and brown.  To create these unique wedding favors, I tapped into one of my uber creative designers to bring the design to life and I think she did a great job.
