A cookie buffet MUST have milk!
When it came to crafting for the party, I was super super psyched.
For starters, we had to have milk...
I used wine carafes for the milk bottles (Walmart!) and then designed some simple labels. You know how it is, some people like skim, some people like it whole (or should I say "Ho-Ho-Whole!")
We served it up cold in those pretty stemmed glasses!
I printed the labels, layered them up with some pretty paper, and attached them to a fun velvet ribbon.
Here's a tutorial & free download of the milk labels if you'd like to use them!
For the labels, I just typed up the different cookies inside of 1.5" circles in photoshop
(super easy - just "draw" 1.5 inch circles inside of Photoshop or Word & then type inside of them with the text box tool & print). Once I had them printed (on pretty craft paper), I cut out each circle and layered it with red linen cardstock & voila!
I left some blank ones for the guests' cookies to be labeled. This miniature clothespin was perfect for attaching the label to the bowl when I ran out of card holders.

the best part? I had a gift card to Michael's, so I didn't spend a thing on decor! Plus I borrowed most of these beautiful dishes from my mom & the silver pear card holders were favors left over from a friend's wedding!
