Yum, yum, yum!
The day before Valentine's Day we had a Cookies and Milk party for some friends and family. As I mentioned before, really it was for no other reason than I love to bake and I love to style parties. So, fun!
Ever since I saw this post, I've been wanting to have one of my own. One of my favorite details was the retro paper straws from Kikkerland. I baked probably more than 700 cookies so there was plenty for everyone to take some home with them.
The kids decorated their own heart sugar cookies.
And I made a matching hostess apron to wear. It was loosely based on the Flirty Skirty pattern.
The favorite of all the guests was Martha's Carrot Cake Sandwiches from the Cookies book.
But the infamous NY Times Chocolate Chip ones were also very popular (and really a meal in and of themselves).
