Milk and Cookies Baby Shower

Something's in the water where I live because I have so many friends that are having babies. Just one after another. So of course that means there are gonna be a ton of baby showers.
Well, a few weeks ago, me and a few friends put on a baby shower for two friends that are due around the same time and are both having boys.
I'd seen this party here and then had seen all of the milk and cookie parties around blogland and wanted to do something similar to those.
So, between the three of us we made 8 different types of cookies and put each one in a cylinder vase/jar. I also had three milk jugs that I put fat-free, 2%, and chocolate milk in {found at local thrift stores}.
Here are the details:
I tied ribbon around each vase and found the tags {found online for free - - forgot where, I'll keep on looking} that I just printed out, cut, put a ribbon on, and taped it to the ribbon on the vase. The tissue paper I had already had {thrift store find}, the eclectic white plates I'd found at many thrift stores in the past 2 years, vintage stroller to hold all the gifts {found on craigslist for $20 to use as a photography prop}, tissue pom-poms I made {tutorial to be up this week}, glass cups found at ikea for cheap, paper straws I found here {groupon deal}, and take home paper bags I made. So simple.
We had a few games here and there, opened up presents, and just mainly socialized . . . of course. Love baby showers.
Milk and cookies . . . the perfect treat.
I'll be linking to these parties here.

  4. The celebration of baby shower is a time of great joy for all the family of the pregnant woman and unborn child, and to make this celebration a success must be planned in advance by the best friend of the mother or herself.

    Love love this. I am throwing a baby shower for my girlfriend and we are inviting about 70 people! This is a great idea to have when inviting so many people. Dont have to worry about a whole meal. How did you word the invitations? Do you mention that it is a cookie and milk party so people dont expect a meal? Thank you for the wonderful idea......also do you have the link to where you printed the labels?
