i have the sweetest party to share - a cookies and milk first birthday party for little guy jack. his mom is the beautiful and inspiring kate of cocktails and cupcakes. before we talk about the fun party, do take time to read her blog later as her posts managed to make me cry and laugh out loud from one post to another.
now back to jack's first birthday party which was still back in august but i am not hesistant to share the creative details she and her husband made for the big day. brown and white was the most fitting color scheme for the theme and i'm loving this casual look for the party invitation.
the birthday banner shown here was made by kate herself by using paper and chipboard letter and brown ribbon to tie them together. it hung above the most awesome portrait of jack that her husband created. love that idea!
milk and adult beverages were served on vintage milk bottles
what a heavenly display of cookies (i spy brownies too?)
seriously? this cake shaped like a cookie is adorable. my son would have loved to bury his head into it. also, do you see the cups behind it? kate made photo tags of baby jack and tied it with baker's twine on each cup for added pizzazz. such a brilliant idea!
party favors were cookie mix in jars and adorned with handmade labels and tags, checked fabric and twine. kate didnt stop there - she (and a friend) made those lovely hanging poms! (oh did i mention i love her kitchen? im crushing on her kitchen chandelier!)
thanks kate for allowing me to share these photos. for more details (including the downloadable program for the cool wall portrait) on party vendors that she used, read her post here.
