I don't have a tutorial for you this week, but something better! Who doesn't love a good old fashioned baby shower?
My bestie Ari & I threw a "Milk & Cookies" themes shin-dig for our pal Crystal this weekend. They don't know the gender of their baby, so it was fun to put together a gender-neutral party. Up until 9:30 am at church yesterday morning, I thought the shower was next week. A few
panic attacks meltdowns and a frantic trip to Safeway after church, a batch of deflated cookies ((blame it on the a-a-a-a-a-altitude)), and a record-time house cleaning later, we were all set. Thank goodness my mom was in town to help me throw it all together in 2 hours ((and thank goodness Ari had already baked most of the cookies))!
The shower was inspired by this book from Anthropologie.
We had all sorts of homemade cookies, lots of milk options ((almond, strawberry, chocolate, 2%, etc)), some coffee for those struggling with daylight saving's time and of course -- cute paper straws! We used frappuccino bottles for the milk bottles. I've been acquiring & drinking them over the past few weeks and my mom scrubbed the labels off that morning!
I'd say it all came together pretty well ;)
Enjoy some photos, why don't ya?
Don't know what I'd do without this gal.
Now, then. Someone pass the homemade oreos, please.
