Baby Shower: "Milk and Cookies"

Too many cookies? No such thing, if you ask me!

There were plenty to go around last weekend at a "Milk and Cookies" baby shower for our good friends Amy and Josh. Baby Boy will be here soon, and we made sure Momma had enough sweets for her sweet tooth!

Quite possibly her prettiest party setup yet! Black and white, and blue and green. Oh, yes, and in the end, nothing but cookie crumbs!

An ADORABLE way to display the milk! (How did Mikaelah know this would be my favorite part?) Cute containers held both 2% and skim, and they also carried through with the color theme. The little individual strawberry and chocolate ones were a hit as well!

Yummy yummy! We had everything from chocolate chip, to no-bakes to dipped Oreos.

Even the accent chairs matched the color theme =)

Mikaelah made these display signs. She is so good!

And more cookies ...

Dipped Oreos from Ba's Kitchen Connection.

Which milk is which? Just check the tags!

Pretty living room setup, complete with floating pom-poms.

How many gumballs were in the baby bottle? Future daddy won the game with a PERFECT guess! (We're still not sure if he cheated!)

It's (going to be) a boy! He'll be here soon, and to get ready for all those diaper changes is the diaper cake.

Ready to welcome baby!

Just in case our attendees didn't get enough sweets during the shower, there were some to take home.

I loved this diaper cake! Mikaelah is very good at making these, and she's made them for all sorts of shower themes.

Fun little baby cake.

Baby gets his own milk to take home. (And since Daddy is a football fan, baby now has his very own football booties!)

Best wishes to Mommy and Daddy. Baby Boy will be here soon!


  1. Truly in love all these decorations from the Milk and cookies baby shower. All these arrangements are just so nice. At the local party venues in Chicago I need to host a bridal shower for my cousin. I wonder if you can suggest a suitable theme for that!

    1. Aww thank you! And thank for visiting our blog! Milk and Cookies was such a fun shower theme, anchored with black and white, and blues and greens. You can make any theme perfect! Vintage themes (think doilies, burlap, flowers ok assorted jars) are very classic. I recently attended a shower for a boy, and the color scheme was a very well done navy and gold. It was beautiful!
