In my pursuit of new endeavors, I’ve decided that I’m going to expand to other very fun and exciting things. In other words, I’ve decided to start designing and event planning for small events! As fabulous as weddings are, they are large scale productions and I find that creativity can shine the brightest in smaller events. The plan is to give a good dose of design and theme unity to baby showers, wedding showers, dinner parties, birthday parties and the like. It’s perfect for those who have a ‘vision’ of the kind of event they want but either don’t have the time or means to get it accomplished.

I recently did a 1st birthday party with a fabulous theme! Milk & Cookies. What better way to celebrate the 1st birthday of an adorable little girl! I find many parents are looking for innovative themes and ideas for birthday parties.



The color scheme was yellow, brown and white. Polka dots helped highlighted the milk and cookies that abounded.



A full scale tiled image was used as decoration. These tiled images are available for purchase using your own custom image HERE.


A custom banner was also displayed


Centerpieces were individual jars of chocolate, oatmeal and sugar cookies and each was surrounded by photo boxes made of assorted pictures of the birthday girl’s first year of life.


Individual ‘lollypop’ style descriptions of the food available told guests what the culinary treasures were


A safe zone was set up for those non walking children to play and roll around without worry of being stampeded by older children. It also allowed the parents of said children to put their kids down and mingle with guests without too much preoccupation


Individual sized FRESH milk from Ronny Brook Farms in both whole and chocolate along with brown bags of cookies were given to guests as favors







And my favorite balloon guy was on hand to make fabulous balloons for the guest. An absolutely SWEET time.

I'm so glad I stumbled upon your blog! I am getting started with small-party planning and love connecting to other planners out there. Milk and Cookies theme is adorable. LOVE the little milk containers.

This was a triple link to you, but the photo mural was up on Tip Junkie. How did you do the mural? I'm looking to do one of a picture of the city of Amman. I found a huge photo on canvas of New York at Ikea and would love to imitate the look of it, and this mural is the closest I've seen.

I missed completely these posts! Shame on me. I sell the mural on Etsy now. http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_2&listing_id=17435025

I can make it of anything at all as long as the picture received is of high resolution.

I saw this party over on Kim Vallee! What a wonderful idea. I'm also breaking into small-event planning myself, doing themed party packages for a local playroom. Good luck!

The milk & cookies theme is so cute it would work well for PJ parties too.
