When I owned a catering company, I learned that it, indeed, is “all about presentation,” as they say. I’ll never understand how someone can spend so much time and effort into making a delicious and beautiful treat, then put it into a plastic tupperware box or put it on a paper plate wrapped in plastic wrap. Drives me crazy... I realize that most people do not have all the time in the world to dream up how to package their cookies. Yes, I know there are more important things. Buuuut, it is so easy with just a little effort.
Take a cue from you favorite retail boutiques, do they put your purchases in a plastic grocery stack? No, they wrap your items lovingly in tissue sealed with a branded sticker and then into a color coordinated gift bag. Packaging your kitchen goodies nicely might even make them taste better... if that is possible.
