My Party: Emme

Warwick, RI

Young and old alike can get behind milk and cookies and Amy shows that it's a perfect theme for a child's party: Emme’s Milk & Cookies Party was held October 2, 2010 at our home in Rhode Island. She’s our first child and we really wanted to make the event filled with all of the little touches that make it personal. We choose the theme as a tribute to my late grandfather who would always share his cookies and milk with me when he was visiting from New York.

The colors we chose were red, pale blue and aqua and we created invitations incorporating the theme as well as photos of Emme and our dog wearing a party hat. I found a fantastic milk carton template from Paper Crave for favors and made play dough to fill them with. We then attached cookie cutters with bakery twine and sealed them with a sticker imprinted with the birthday girl.

For décor, I created paper circle garlands on my sewing machine from the leftover invitation paper as well as made pennants and went crazy incorporating the color scheme into everything. Even the family dog, Doug was required to wear a coordinating tie that I made while Emme donned a “1” crown while she blew out the candles. The adorable cake was inspired by another blog post at A Party Style and was made by Emme’s Auntie Kelly.
