If a couple is considering a theme to their wedding, what is your best recommendation for incorporating it into the Dessert Table?

We love pairing cookies to match the theme of a wedding! We have recommended menus for Rustic Chic (think Old Fashioned Chocolate Chip, Maple Oatmeal, Kentucky Butter), Modern Glamour (Caramel Fleur de Sel, French Vanilla, Cherry Almond) and Eclectic Boho (Inside-Out Chocolate Chip, Caramel Pretzel, Buttered Popcorn), just to name a few. And of course, Seasonal Specialties are always a perfect theme. My personal favorite is our Autumn collection: Pumpkin Spice, Caramel Apple, Praline Butter Pecan and Glazed Maple Walnut.

We also have over a dozen Tablescape Designs to really pull the theme together. My current favorite is Venetian Elegance – complementary shades of light to dark blue glass with glints of gold throughout. Like the sun setting on the Grand Canal. But I also love the juxtaposition of different themes, for instance our Modern Glamour Tablescape in a barn or garden venue always looks and feels so magical!

What do you love most about helping brides and grooms with their weddings?

The planning… no, seriously! Starting from the initial consultation and working with each couple’s unique vision to put together a custom package just for them is my favorite part. Creating menus, designing tablescapes, wrapping favors, arranging the final presentation and of course, baking the cookies – all in anticipation of the big day – never gets old for us. Each of our couple’s weddings is a unique, once in a lifetime event – and we love being part of each unique, once in a lifetime wedding!

What is your approach to bringing tasteful and amazing results for your couples?

We are artisan gourmet for a reason. Delicious taste comes first with cookies. Period. Rustic, hearty, home-baked. We love cookies that look and taste as if they just came fresh out of a hot oven – because they did! And great-tasting cookies deserve great-looking presentations, so we take extra care to present our cookies on custom-designed tablescapes for Dessert Tables and in elegant packaging for Thank You Favors to create something that is a feast for the eyes as well as the tastebuds.

What can couples expect when working with The Cookie Jar?

Besides the obvious (the MOST delicious cookies!), we love creating packages and menus personally tailored for each unique couple. We don’t have cookie-cutter clients (pardon the pun) so we always customize our services to fit their desires perfectly. We offer expert suggestions and guidance but in the end our goal is to help our couples fulfill their unique vision for their wedding.

What is your best advice to avoid planning stress most Brides and Grooms inevitably feel?

Don’t be afraid to delegate tasks. You’re surrounded by family and friends who love you and would be more than happy to handle some of the heavy lifting. And rely on your vendors’ expertise! You hired us for a reason and we’re more than happy to provide you with guidance and advice and take away as much stress as possible. We want you to have fun and enjoy the journey!

What do you find most couples are looking for at their reception?

In a word – FUN! The best compliment anyone can hope to hear is that their wedding was so much FUN! Years from now, when you and your friends and family think back on your wedding day, you want to remember it being – above all else – FUN. Fun is what makes your wedding unique and memorable and keeps it from blending into other weddings. And cookies are super fun!

Your Dessert Table becomes part of the entertainment. It’s where your guests will visit and mingle and chat and laugh with each other all evening. It’s where they’ll stop on the way to and from the dance floor. It’s where they’ll grab a midnight snack for the road. It’s where they’ll head to when they have a cocktail in one hand… because it’s super easy – and FUN – to grab a cookie with the other! By far, the biggest feedback we’ve received in all the years we’ve been bringing cookie Dessert Tables to weddings is “it made our reception so much fun!”

What are some of the best compliments you’ve received from your clients?

Besides being told by our clients how delicious our cookies are and how much fun the Dessert Table is (we NEVER tire of hearing those), our next favorite compliments are about our Thank You Favors. We hear again and again how much our couples love giving favors that are so wonderfully different from the usual bric-a-brac. Or as one bride told us, “Like most people, I have a bunch of dust-collecting glasses, vases and trinkets from other people’s weddings that I never use but don’t have the heart to throw out. I was thrilled to find Thank You Favors I knew would NEVER collect dust. In fact, so many of my guests told me the Cookie Pies didn’t even make it home because they simply couldn’t resist the temptation! And I got so many calls asking where they could get more of them. Thank you for making my wedding favors an all-time favorite!”

Tell us more about the couples you usually get the pleasure of working with.

We love working with all couples! Whether the bride is doing most of the legwork herself, the couple is all-in working together on every detail or their friends and family members are part of the “all-hands-on-deck” wedding squad, it’s always our pleasure to do our part and bring their unique wedding vision to life!
