Exciting news!

Have you seen the magazine, Mingle? The second issue came out today - it's all about parties and celebrations. The magazine is a great read - but this issue is particularly exciting because ... one of our parties is featured! There is a photo and description of our Decades Inspired Celebration! So thrilled to see our photo in print. Check out Mingle magazine, available at many craft stores and Barnes and Noble, for lots of fun party inspiration. Visit our blog post to see more photos from this fun celebration.

Milk and Cookies Baby Shower

Stephanie, Kristine, Katie and I threw a shower to celebrate the upcoming arrival of our friend's bundle of joy! As the mother to be loves cows we chose a milk and cookies theme with fun cow elements.

The invite introduced the theme and welcomed family and friends to join us to celebrate the little cookie to be London!

Invitation from Squamscott Crafts

When guests arrived, they were greeted with cow nametags with fun straws. The nametags were displayed in trays filled with cookie cereal.

Guests enjoyed a buffet of assorted cookies and sweet treats - yum!

Delicious milk carton cake filled with cookies and cream frosting of course! And giant chocolate chip cookies.

 Cold milk in chocolate, strawberry or regular was served in classic milk bottles with fun straws with "milk mustaches".

Guests posed for the camera at our photobooth with "milk mustaches", giant cookies and milk bottles.

Guests played gift bingo while watching the guest of honor open lots of beautiful presents.

Tables were decorated with coordinating fabric, antique milk bottles and pink carnations and baby's breath.

Guests went home with Chocolate Chip cookie kit favors - ingrediants for a batch of cookies were layered in milk jugs with labels and tags with prep instructions.
