Real Baby Shower: Cookies & Milk


Wednesday, November 17, 2010


Today's shower weaseled it's way into our hearts one cookie at a time -- literally.  And, though this shower has chocolate chip, peanut butter, and lemon cookies popping up around every corner, we promise that the delicious details of this shower are anything but cookie cutter.  (We'd be lying if we said we weren't waiting all day to use that cheese-ball line)!  :)  But, back to this yummy shower that was designed by the lovely ladies from The Savvy Moms GuideAmy and Bri.  We think this cookies and milk baby shower theme they created is So. Much. Fun. (Who doesn't love a good cookie?  Not us)! Plus, we big-time-heart that almost everything in this shower is homemade!  (We would have died to have been a fly on the wall during Amy and Bri's brainstorming session for this shower's details because we adore everything we see ... the colors? (Fantastic -- and perfect for fall)!  The use of cookie crisp cereal throughout the shower? (We die)!  And, the little old fashion milk station complete with stripped straws? (Pure perfection -- you know we would be parked there getting ready for our "got milk?" photo shoot)!  So, pour yourself a nice tall glass of milk and enjoy today's sweet treat!

From Amy & Bri... The day was full of DIY details. The "A" on the door was created using foam board, the Cricuit, paint and some "Cookie Crisp" cereal. The "cookies" in the pots and on the dessert table were made using Styrofoam, paint, wooden dowels, tulle and more "cookie crisp" cereal. The banner "Got Cravings" was created by Ella B Photography which coordinated with the colors and theme of the shower perfectly! The favors were milk carton printables that also coordinated with the colors and the theme of the shower and were filled with mini chocolate chip cookies created by Polkadot Prints. The desserts were made by friends and family. However the unique milk bottles and chocolate chip sugar cookies and cake balls were created by Kolby Kakes Edible Creations.

I wanted to limit the usual baby shower games, so my sister came up with "Guess How Many Cookies are in the Cookie Jar?" She simply filled a jar with (again) Cookie Crisp cereal and had each of the guests put their guess on a slip of paper with their name.
