So adorable! I wish I could just plan all my friends babies parties so I could use all the fabulous ideas on this blog!! =)

Hey ladies!

Thanks for all of the comments about my party. The milk bottles, believe it or not, came from Walmart! I looked all over online, but didn't want to pay a fortune. I was BEYOND happy and surprised when I found them there.

It was a super fun party! Thanks Kara for this amazing blog! It makes me want to get started planning another party!

Happy party planning everyone!

I would love to know where she got the banner. It's stunning!!!!

Jill said...

Tracie:

I actually made the banner. It's just out of scrapbook paper and letters that I bought at the scrapbook store. If anyone wants me to make them one, let me know.

Jill:

I would love to buy one from you if you are selling them! Contact me at tracie.barnthouse@gmail.com and we can work out the details. I'm so excited!!!

Erin said...

I love the milk bottles, too! I looked at walmart online and didn't see them. Are they the great value brand plastic bottles? Thanks for sharing such a darling party!

Jill said...

I peeled the stickers off, so I don't remember what brand they were. They were in the kitchen section (at the store) by the water pitchers. Sorry! Wish I could be more helpful.

Angela said...

I adore this party! I'm planning one of my own for my daughter's second birthday, and I have not been able to find much inspiration for a cute invitation. Jill,I'm hoping you are still checking here and could maybe let me know what kind of invite you did for this precious party?

Hey! To anyone looking for the milk bottles...I was on a mad hunt for them and refused to take no for an answer! I just started looking on every isle in Walmart. I don't know if you guys are looking for individual sized ones like I was, but they are big! It's called a wine caraffe. They have plenty here, so if you can't find them, I can get them! I was so excited to find them. As for invitations, I'm doing like a "Got Milk" ad for her invite!!
