Milk and Cookie Theme

One of the requests last week on the giveaway was for a cookie and milk baby shower - I LOVE this theme - it's a great way to keep to a small budget, it's gender neutral AND hello - it's cookies!

Set up your cookies in different containers - add labels and a cut of printed paper on the inside for an extra touch! Don't have enough containers? Wrap open boxes in wrapping paper!  Source

So many great elements to inspire - use a great piece of fabric or wrapping paper to create an eye popping backdrop, use colored straws in glasses of milk for any extra touch! You can put the milk in carafes or serve individual bottles .  Source

How fun would it be to get each guest to submit their favorite cookie recipe and hand out recipe books for the favor! You could put whatever the occasion is on the front to always remember! For the mom-to-be (if you do a baby shower) have each guest write something special on the recipe they sent in - each time she makes cookies, she'll remember that special day! Source

Printable cookie bags would be a great way to personalize favor bags AND ensure your guests take home the left overs so you can fit into your jeans next week! lol  Source 

The best cookies and milk cake ever! I love this one! You could take inspiration from it and make milk bottles out of paper or felt and put around as decoration.  Glue them to an inexpensive tablecloth for a special touch - or string them together for a cute banner! Source

  8. I'm doing one this weekend and could not afford the cookie jars, so I am serving the cooikies on white dinner plates. I figured that is how we serve them at home (on a plate) so it would work.
