Vintage Milk & Cookies Guest Dessert Feature

The AAE team is in love with this vintage milk & cookies table from Kate Brown and Yolanda Cerra of Kiss Me Kate in Melbourne. Kate and Yolanda recently teamed up and will have a website up soon, and we’ll be sure to showcase more of their beautiful work.  They created this table for a kid’s birthday party and they knocked it out of the park.  There are so many unique touches that it can take some studying of the photos to pick out everything.

A few of my favorite items are…the milk jar cookie pops, custom mini milk cartons, and those half-eaten cookies!!! Creative styling was incorporated by using props like milk crates and containers, a vintage scale, and cutting boards to hold all of the desserts.  Clever signage from Anders Ruff included “have cookies,”  playing off the “have milk” campaign. Since it was a milk and cookies bar, candy jars were filled with malted milkballs, milk bottle candy, and a variety of cookies, including oreos. Last, I always mention how important it is to have a vertical element on a table.  The milk crate with the MILK letters in it were the perfect vehicle to draw guests eyes up.  Fantastic job, ladies.  Off for a cookie break now:)

    I’m so happy I saw those milk bottles in the red caddy. I have a silver caddy just like that that I picked up at a garage sale because I thought it was cool. I had no idea what it was for — now I know :)

    Want…cookies and milk!
    I love everything about this “sweet ” birthday.
    The treats, graphics…color scheme, the girl and boy cookies!!

    Reminds me of after school snack time with my girls…we still try to sit down together and connect before the afternoon is full of homework and activites.

    We would linger at this treat table for sure ! :)
