For Amelia’s second birthday party, it was her love of “cook-cooks and milk” that inspired this fun, pretty pink and gray “Cookies and Milk” theme. This party was in December, but we think it has some great ideas for Valentine’s Day parties, too. Amelia’s mom, photographer Nicki of Vitalic Photo, started by designing the absolutely darling invitations, complete with hand drawn little cookies. Soon after, she came across some little stuffed cookie ornaments on Etsy that matched perfectly. With the party so close to Christmas, they made the perfect favors for guests. Nicki packaged them up in lovely matching favor bags under a mini tree adorned in pink and silver.
Of course a Cookies and Milk themed birthday party would not be complete without a full dessert table with delicious treats, which included cake and mini cupcakes, chocolate peppermint whoopie squares, mini heart sugar cookies, plus homemade cake pops, chocolate chip cookies, and funfetti cookies. 2% milk and chocolate milk were served in glass bottles with pink striped straws. The backdrop design idea came from the gorgeous backdrop designed by Jesi Haack Design, one of the WC Hand Picked Designers, for the Lover.ly launch party (see more by clicking here). For her version, Nicki used a ruffled shower curtain from Urban Outfitters (we have the white window curtain version of them in my little girl’s nursery and they are so pretty in person!), which was decorated with hand sewn stuffed heart pillows by Amelia’s mimi. If you want to see even more prettiness from this party, visit the full gallery.
