Milk and Cookies Baby Shower

I had the honor of hosting a baby shower for my dear friend to celebrate her second baby boy. Heather and I met in high school and have continued our friendship and our littles are even best buds! The theme of the shower was "Milk and Cookies"and was so fun to pull together. The colors were blue and brown.

The food was of course... milk and cookies! We had a wide assortment of cookies: chocolate chip, snicker doodle, thumbprints...It was a mix of homemade, store bought and brought by friends :) We also had fruit skewers so there would be something healthy! For drinks we had milk, latte punch and water served in milk containers.

Mason jars with blue chevron straws were perfect for the drinks!
The favors were milk mustaches made with dark chocolate and mustache molds.

No baby shower is complete without a few games! We played a memory game using words about pregnancy/birth that each correlated with a candy. For example- if you got "contractions" the prize was Whoppers.

This book fit perfect with the theme and served as a great guest book!

Cookie Crisp cereal was used to fill this vase and guests had to guess the correct amount. The person who guessed the closest won a candle.

And what mom doesn't need a little encouragement, especially after your new little one is born? I had some notecards out for guests to write something to make her laugh, encourage her, scripture, what every they wanted and Heather can open then when she needs them most.
