I’m sorry I don’t know what else being as I am a huge cookie fan. But, what kind of boxes are you using? I am looking for *cheap* dessert boxes myself.

We are doing the same thing. I agree with the trail mix idea although I would dive head first into the cookies!!

I can tell you aren’t from Pittsburgh because we call that a Cookie table!  They are so much fun!  Just a tip for you… with so many people with nut allergies… plan to have the cookies placed so that nut free cookies are arranged to be on the table away from the nut ones!

@Missbliss: All hail the mighty Pittsburgh cookie table.  I already have people (aunts, mothers, other women of the family) pledging their baking skills. I do like the name cookie buffet though because the way I have seen it done, it is quite the buffet. ha

We have a cookie table at my family Christmas parties which is a mini version of the Pittsburgh wedding tradition, and you are right it is a buffet of cookies! And some weddings have an entire FEAST of cookie treats! I have a couple friends with nut allergies and so at my little party, I always try to make a platter of nutless cookies, because I don’t want to have anyone end up going to the hospital.  I also make chocolates for that party, and have realized that I need to be careful how I make and store them so that my allergic friend’s are okay!  Cookie tables definitely rock the party!  @piglet If you have a Pittsburgh group travelling to your wedding, plan to talk to them about the tradition.  We don’t think of cookies as a dessert item, but rather a walk in the reception…make a plate of cookies, eat, enjoy, and return for more cookies… it’s a major part of a wedding in our region!  It would be considered a cultural tradition to his family, so they will probably be willing to bake cookies for it, and will be expecting the “buffet” to match the table idea!

We’re having a dessert station…not exactly cookies but similar. There will be brownies, lemon, pecan bars, petit sugar cookies, shortbread cookies, cheesecake etc. It’s a decorative station so should be arranged nice.

i love the cookie idea! I wonder if you could have some sort of toaster to warm them! That would be cool!
