cookies & milk

cookies + milk baby shower. 

the invitation from Etsy
classic chocolate cookies displayed an
old fashioned egg crate for added height.
who doesn't love rice crispy treats on a stick?
adorned with a fabric ribbon.
bottles I happened upon at TJ Maxx clearance.
$2.00 each. tags from Hobby Lobby.

I made the board with a 4x4 piece of ply-wood that I padded with batting, covered in burlap, coordinating fabric and ribbon. 
I love the idea of changing out the fabric for various parties.
tissue paper poms hang from the side.

the banner was printer on my home computer. 
this might possible be my favorite part.
An old mixer swiped from my mother in-laws garage and
filled with baby's breath. 

another peak at the mixer. 

old fashion cookie cutters hung from the dining room chandelier. 

mason jars filled with baby's breath. 

Guests wrote blessings for Holly & Olivia

a happy me!

I love all of your ideas...especially, those reusing objects you or someone else already have. The bargain Milk Bottles and mason jars were sweet as well.
