This past weekend I got to host a shower for one of my dearest friends. The day she told me she was pregnant I "claimed" doing a shower for her. I already knew I wanted to do a cookies and milk theme, since it's one of my favourites and then later I decided to incorporate the books into it.
There are a lot of little things that I want to cover, so I'm going to break it into a few posts so as to not bore you with the details. :)
I'm a firm believer that invitations set the scene for the party and its important to have a good one. :) I designed a two-sided invite on my silhouette software. I didn't actually use my silhouette to cut this out (it was all straight lines so there was really no point), but I used the shapes from the library and basically set up the invite as a giant "print and cut" shape. I had it printed on a colour laser (I didn't want the colours to run if they got wet) and then I put them together on blue card stock. This is a good example of why everyone should download the silhouette software (it's free!). You can use to it make all sorts of things, even if you don't own a machine.

I reused the style of invite for all the printed material throughout the party. Some examples are below:
Next up, decorations! Followed by the food!
