Jenna and Carmen are amazing at what they do! They provided FABULOUS 'Sex and the City' themed cookie favors for my bridal shower. They worked with me on the ribbon colors and even tied the tags on for me (one less thing I needed to do). They were not only amazing to look at, but they were beyond delicious! In fact, when I was trying to figure out a favor for my rehearsal dinner, I knew exactly who to go to---Sensibly sweet! This time they did palm tree cookies to go with my tropical theme! When some arrived broken, they not only rushed to re-do those, they met me immediately the next day to deliver the new cookies. Their professionalism and easiness to work with were such a blessing--esp. when planning a wedding! I can't wait to have another event just to order more cookies!! Don't look anywhere else--they will do whatever you need and work within your timeline to get the job done! I love sensibly sweet!!!
Jenna was extremely professional and very easy to work with. She always responded in a timely manner and was very helpful with our wedding favors - our guests loved the dog and cat cookies dedicated to the ASPCA!
Sensibly Sweet responded to my email nearly immediately and truly sounded excited to help us create our unique wedding favors. Our wedding was in Brooklyn, NY and we requested NY themed cookies. Sensibly Sweet provided suggestions of cookies that were within our price range and even packaged them with coordinating colors! The cookies were BIG and extremely detailed, beyond our expectations!! (The taxi cab had hub-caps and break lights!!) Our guests thought they were very unique and to top it off, they were delicious. We were beyond happy with the order and have already said we plan to visit the shop!
Jenna was a pleasure to work with. From beginning to end, all of our communication was through e-mail, which when planning a wedding and all there is to do was extremely convenient. She picked up one our theme right away and sent us four cookie choices to choose from and taste test. We liked two and hoped to custom make a cookie using aspects of both. Jenna said absolutely so we eneded up with a three tiered wedding cake cookie, with white fondant, black damask pattern and our purple B front and center. She gave us many options as far as packaging and then customized a ribbon with our names and the date to tie the cookies up in a cellophane wrapper with. We were extremely happy with her service. Thanks Jen!

Meet the dynamic duo behind Sensibly Sweet:
The onset of Sensibly Sweet began with the formation of a mother-daughter innovative team. The daughter, Jenna, a culinary school graduate who specializes in baking, decided to combine forces with her mother, Carmen, an artist and owner of Party Etc., a party decorating business established in 1996. Together they created Sensibly Sweet, a custom cookie company that centers around families and their special events.
Carmen, who has a degree in fashion design from the Fashion Institute of New York, and interior decorating from the New York School of Interior Design has always had a passion for party decorating. Whether it was a small gathering with friends or her daughter’s Quinceañera, she has always paid attention to detail. Her focus, the décor of the room, from balloons, to tulle, to twinkling white lights, no stone ever goes unturned.
The idea of the cookies started with Jenna’s colleague and friend Josh Lynn (www.joshlynn.com) who approached her about making “Thank You” boxes for his brides. That idea was the beginning of a new direction to the Sensibly Sweet portfolio. Thank you, Josh!
Jenna, who has her BPS in Culinary Arts, has always had a passion for baking. Growing up with a very artistic, creative mother, it was inevitable that she would decide to join forces with her. Together they not only create fabulous cookies and have fun decorating beautiful banquet halls but they also share their very special mother-daughter bond.
