Ansley's First Birthday- Cookies and Milk Decor

We celebrated Ms. Ansley Sue's 1st Birthday a couple of weeks a go! I had so much fun planning her party! After looking at several blogs, I decided to do a milk and cookie theme. I love polka dots, and thought I could incorporate them into a pink and brown color scheme.

I made the cupcake toppers (with Mom's help). I got the printables from here, and the cupcake liners (and lanterns, balloons, and plates) from polka dot market. I LOVE Polka Dot Market! It is a store that just makes me happy! I made the cupcakes- chocolate chip cookie dough stuffed, with butter cream icing. I was pleased with how they turned out!

I had Ansley's cake made here in town, and the "1" cookies to match.

I planned on placing the milk bottles all nice and neat, but as I was running out of time getting things ready, I asked Grant to put them in. They turned out so cute! We had strawberry, chocolate, and 2% milk. I got the labels from here, and printed them on sticker paper. I used the cupcake toppers, cut in small circles, on the top of the bottles. My friend Laura drank all the Starbucks, and gave me the bottles! Thanks sooooo much!

Plates from Polka Dot Market!

Thank you sacks for goody bags...fill your sack with cookies!

I lined the cookie jars with scrapbook paper, and then put tissue paper inside. We had Oreos, chocolate chip cookies, no bake cookies, and the 1 sugar cookies.

The birthday girl's high chair was surrounded by balloons from Polka Dot Market. I made the "I am 1!" banner behind her chair. My friend Tara cut out the letters, and I made the rest.

The lamp came from Ansley's room. The picture holder is a canvas made by friends (All for Fun Designs), and is actually a bow holder from Ansley's room.
