With just days left in the 2016 Cookie Program, it's time to think about how you'll attract those last minute customers to your cookie booths. Banish the boring! If you want to attract lots of customers, it's time to "bling" your booth. Anything fun, bright, colorful, energetic and creative will bring customers running. Just be sure to follow the guidelines set by your booth sponsor. 

What kind of bling is your thing? These ideas are just the beginning.                                                     

Power up your posters                                                                                                                            
Make them fun. Make them exciting. What will you say? Examples: 
Girl Scout cookies are here!
Our cookie goal is...
Cookie bundles are bliss!
Donate cookies to Gift of Caring.      
         
Color is bright
Balloons and colorful tablecloths will guarantee you're not missed! Create savvy signage with a cookie booth overhead sign.
