Gwen Willhite created the original cookie bouquet from her first commercial kitchen in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1983, establishing the original cookie bouquet company Cookies by Design. Three years later Gwen Willhite moved her operations to Dallas,Texas. In 1987 the first franchise location opened, allowing the [null cookie bouquet] to become a mainstream gifting option.
Cookies used in cookie bouquets are usually decorated around a specific theme, such as "Get Well," or "New Baby," with cookies in the shape of flowers, children's toys, animals, vehicles—almost anything can be re-imagined and designed as a cookie for a bouquet.
Each cookie in a bouquet is usually individually shrink-wrapped and may include decorative tissue, raffia, ribbons, and/or cellophane. Additionally other popular gift items, such as a teddy bear, chocolate, and greeting cards, may be integrated into the bouquet's design. Cookie bouquets are usually made of sugar cookies, though other varieties may be offered.
