We LOVE cookies over here. Truth be told, we probably LOVE milk even more. After their 2nd birthday Pancakes and Pajamas party
, and the second year in a row to host a birthday party first thing in the morning, I decided that an afternoon party would be next. The most fun part about the twins’ birthday being in December and during the holiday season is that I can kind of mix and match the party theme into our christmas decor.
Last year we had a pink and purple tree…
When I told Jordan my vision for the year’s birthday party – to be a more Christmas-y theme with red, white, brown, and mustard – he was over the moon:)
This year was SO MUCH FUN- the twins talked about their birthday time for weeks leading up to their party. I was so excited for them!
Cookies Cookies Cookies!! With an afternoon party, I kept it simple on the food front- appetizer foods, but the best and most delicious component of the party-
strawberry + original + chocolate
I wrapped the glass canisters in lace and linen ribbon and bought single flowers to accessorize.
spinach + artichoke dip with grilled ciabatta
hot ham + cheese sliders
The only thing that was ‘homemade’ (if you want to call frozen meatballs + bbq sauce + chili sauce homemade) was the meatballs. I had the rest of the food catered by Market Street (for much cheaper and easier than to make it myself) and Jordan picked it up on the day of the party.

yes. you read that correctly.
This year the girls are at an age when their party can be more than cake and presents. The weather was beautiful! So we had a cookie decorating station for all the kiddos.
It was a hit!
We decorated sugar cookies- christmas trees, teddy bears, and milk bottles.
It was SO much fun for everyone- and I loved watching my girls and their sweet little friends busy at work decorating (and eating) their beautiful cookie masterpieces.
happy birthday to Parker + Jolie
I was completely overwhelmed to tears with how loved my girls are.
Everyone that was able to come and celebrate their third year of life was so gracious!
Happy Birthday to by beautiful girls!
If anyone gets a sweet tooth and needs a cookie- we are still eating them a week later:)
