Back to School : C is for Cookie

What’s better than a cookie and milk after school? So, the perfect fit would be to have a cookie and milk bar at your back to school party! I also added some apples for a little pop of color, and a little pop of health.
This dessert table was very simple to put together. I find the easiest way to arrange a dessert table is to pull out all your serving dishes and rearrange them on the table until they look good to you. Then fill them up with your treats.

THE COOKIES
I was short on time, so I ended up purchasing all the cookies for our party. It still was a cheap table to put together (approx. $20). But you can make it even cheaper buy making your own cookies. I ended up buying alphabet cookies, chocolate chip cookies, & joe joes (trader joe’s variety of oreos)

THE LABELS
You can download the free printable labels here (click here) for your dessert jars & trays as well as the apple flags and milk bottles. For the apple flags I also used Lollipop Sticks available here.

THE MILK
Kids love to have everything be their own. They are always so excited when I pull out these cute little milk bottles (available at Confetti Sunshine)! The little milk bottles work perfectly with the small 5 inch straws, so I topped them off with the adorable thin green stripe paper straws

As for decoration, I used…
THE CHALKBOARD
The frame is a thrifted frame that I pulled the picture and glass out of. I bought it because I liked the size and look of the frame. I then had some wood cut down at Home Depot to fit inside. Using a grey chalkboard paint, I painted two coats on the wood (according to direction). I really like how it turned out! It makes a great background display for parties. I’ve already used mine twice, and I only made it last week.
THE YARN GARLAND
This cute garland is very easy to put together. I am already putting together a cute little animated picture to help you see just how easy it is. Don’t worry… it’s coming to the blog later today!
