Grandmother & Grandfather's anniversary gift

This year, my Grandparents celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. I wanted to do something special and unique for them. Grandmother enjoys getting flowers, but I didn't want to leave Grandfather out since it was his day too. I wanted six different white flowers (one for each decade they have been married) because "diamond white" is the color for the 60th. I also wanted at least 6 cookies because Grandfather enjoys those! So, after shopping around a little, I was able to work this arrangement out with a florist in their area. He claimed he had never heard of (or seen) cookie bouquets, but he caught on quickly and assured me he could and would do it for me. I was a little worried about how it would turn out, but. . .
Thanks to Aunt Joanna for the picture!!
