Best Kids Parties: Milk & Cookies

My Party

Name: Twins "E" and "S", 1
Location: Atlanta, GA

This past weekend was our twin daughters' first birthday! I wanted to have a twin theme, so I decided it would be "milk & cookies". In planning the party, I was totally inspired by French macarons and their pastel colors. 

The dessert table consisted of three flavored milks in carafes (plain, strawberry and chocolate), and different cookies (animal crackers, black & whites, chocolate chip, snickerdoodles and macarons). Once I decided on the pastel color palette, I used cupcake liners as decoration on the cupcake tier, and the Ikea kids little pastel glasses as table decoration. I made the mini flag bunting for the rainbow cake and inside - surprise- were the pastel colors! All the guests loved it! I used chalkboard labels for the kids' milk bottles - those were the party favors. The kids had aqua paper straws and the adults had pink paper straws. The guests got to take extra cookies home - and we had so many leftover!  

Thanks Rachel!
