Cookie Tag Favors

My father turned 60 on April 22, and to mark the occasion, I planned a dinner for him at Carmine’s in NYC last night. Though it’s loud and bustling (it takes months to get a reservation) the food at Carmine’s is worth the wait. It’s simple, old-school Italian cooking served up family style, so everyone gets to share. To give the birthday dinner a helping of our homemade touch, Christie and I banded together to create cookie favors. She made these tags:

And I made another batch of the Thick and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, put them into cellophane bags and attached the cookie tag with a piece of brown ribbon that Christie included:

So cute! I put a cookie favor next to everyone’s plate at the restaurant. It was a clever, chic way to add a bit of personal style to the evening. I often think that Christie and I should go into business together one day. Cambio and Calcaterra? It has a nice ring to it, don’t you think?
