2nd birthday party...cookies and milk!

We had Annie Rice's 2nd birthday party 2 weeks ago. I really had thought about it and planned it months ago, BUT I had NO IDEA how it would turn out because I had to do everything at the last minute. We went to Disney World the whole week before the party, got home on July 4th. 2 hours after being home, Annie Rice and I had packed up again and we headed to the beach to be with my family. We got back late Thursday night, and the very next day packed again and headed to my parents for the party. I literally did everything for this party in 1 day! It was a little nuts! I made all the cookies[over 250 cookies in less than 4 hours]. BUT it turned out SO CUTE and couldn't have been more of a perfect party for the stage Annie Rice is in. After all, cookies are her favorite:)
I made everything myself except the balloons, and Happy Birthday banner[it was our gotcha day banner and I just ordered the letters BIRTH, to change out every year:)]. I borrowed the milk bottles from a friend and tried to have all of Annie Rice's favorite cookies! We had plenty so I wanted to make sure there were bags to take them home in! SO I took blue painters tape, spray painted it chalk board, and put the tape on a ziplock bag, and wrote cookies on the label! It was super easy and very inexpensive. Below are a few pictures from the party!

What a sweet cookie party! I loved it. Little Annie Rice looked like she was having fun.

Oh the joy she has brought into your lives! We all enjoy following your blog and keeping up with that sassy little sweetheart!

Have a great day!

Wonderful photos and I'm sure you will treasure the memories. We recently had a 2 year old child's birthday party and there was a mobile reptile party for the kids. The children had the time of their life and we got lots of great images.
All the best

What an amazing party. I love all of your containers and signs that you made. You could go into the party planning business. Annie Rice is getting so big!
