Milk and Cookies

Charlie turned 1 on May 24th. I know - that was my last's been awhile. A LOOOOOONG while. For her birthday, I planned a Milk and Cookies party. I had been searching around for a cute 1st birthday theme (because I really like themes) and that one just really stood out. What is better than cookies....especially when you're one year old? Or....even when you're 34 like the Hottie? So...that's what I planned.

I will say that Rainie was a little bit of inspiration to me. She has been planning Talon's party pretty much since he was born. She is NOT a procrastinator (I guess that title is reserved for me.) So - about 6 weeks before her birthday, when Rainie literally had everything completely done for Talon's Carnival Party - I thought I better get started. And, crafting - I did.

I will say....I had a LOT of party inspirations:
A.Party Style
The TomKat Studio
Swanky Pear

You will say - I pretty much re-created all my favorites from all my inspirations. I was definitely laughed at with my spreadsheet-ing and lists and crafts. But, that's okay. It was fun. And you only turn 1 - once...right??!!

Welcome to the Party!!

Aren't these adorable!!! Thanks Ash for making them!!!

Ribbon Topiary made especially for the day.

This is a VERY popular design for the cake. Thanks a.Party Style for the idea. But, most importantly - thanks to my Aunt Renee's friend Diane for making the cutest cake ever!
