Milk & Cookies Party

My son Connor turns 2 on May 17th. I can hardly believe it.  It seems like yesterday that he was born, but yet, so long ago at the same time. How can that be? I am busy getting ready for vacation next week, and then our 4th annual Easter Egg Hunt.  To my mother's horror (she'll say that's an overstatement and an exaggeration...) I have not started planning the party or set a date for his birthday celebration.  

What should the "theme" be?  I am calling on fans and blog readers for ideas!  I recently revisited this adorable "Milk and Cookies" 2nd birthday party that our design team member Mae Armstrong threw for her adorable twin boys! 

From a homemade piñata to DIY play dough favors, a wreath for the front door, and baking mountains of cookies, cakes and cupcakes, Mae spent dozens of hours on this party.   First she created a front door wreath that highlighted the number “2”.   She used her PSA Essential custom stamp that she designed herself for the party.    

She stamped her heart out!   And baked her heart out!  Here’s the dessert buffet featuring chocolate crinkles, chocolate chip cookies, funfetti, boysenberry thumbprint cookies, cookie birthday cake, cookies and cream cupcakes, party straws and homemade play dough favors.

Can you see the blue cookie bag? Guests loved that they were able to bring some yummy baked treats with them.

Here are the homemade play dough party favors.

And cookies and cream cupcakes. 

The whole set up…

Mae’s aunt gave her this cookie pan from William Sonoma – it made an adorable cake!

Here’s the homemade giant cookie pinata with pull strings.

Here’s the piñata in action!

When it was time to eat,  Mae created simple table cover by getting a big roll of butcher paper and covering the table.  She a created simple place mats for each guest with their name and stamped it with the PSA Essentials custom birthday stamp.

The party was simply adorable -- don't you just love all these fun details?  What should Connor's party theme be?  Help!
