Smart Cookie Graduation Party

My daughter, Haley, is now a high school graduate! We've been super busy lately getting ready for this momentous occasion! Because Haley is such a "smart cookie", one of the things we did to celebrate was a smart cookie party, where we served the classic after school snack: milk and cookies!  We had six kinds of cookies on the menu: chocolate chip, peanut butter, snickerdoodles, wholesome oaties, chocolate mint, and Oreos (all made by me except for the Oreos).

The cookies were served on pretty cake plates, and the milk was poured into cute little bottles to drink with a straw.
These were Starbucks Frappuccino bottles that my Mom and I peeled and scrubbed the labels off of.
Our decorations were "old school". We wrote on two old cabinet door chalkboards...
...and we had a vintage typewriter for friends to type a message to Haley.

We decorated with fabric bunting that I sewed, and tissue paper flowers made by Haley's grandmas. (I put them to work while they were visiting!)

Haley's Dad and Grandpa helped with the outdoor decorations (preparing for this party was a family affair!), where we had lots of balloons, lights, and a banner.
Congratulations, Haley!!!
