    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!!!!

  12. Jill says:


    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.

  13. Tracie/Token says:


    I would love to buy one from you if you are selling them! Contact me at [email protected] and we can work out the details. I'm so excited!!!

  14. Erin says:

    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!

  15. Jill says:

    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.

  16. Angela says:

    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?

  17. Sew*Fia says:

    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!!
