Guest Picks: Sweet Supplies for a Milk and Cookies Party
Watch guests' eyes light up when you set a table with yummy treats and pretty accessories
I do a lot of baking and impromptu little gatherings during the winter, and what goes down better than some freshly baked warm cookies with icy-cold glasses of milk on a winter afternoon? I've gathered all of my favorite things together so that you can be fully prepared for a milk and cookies party whenever the occasion calls for one. — Sasha from Lemonade Makin' Mama
I love these miniature replicas of old-fashioned milk bottles. I use my set all the time for after-school snacks or birthday parties, and they even become the occasional bud vases. They are the perfect glassware for single servings of milk.
These boxes are perfect for packing up take-home gifts after the party or stashing extra goodies in style.
I love the idea of a cookie stamp. It's simple, sweet and to the point.
My favorite thing about little gatherings is being able to pull fun dishes and serving items out of the cupboards and create a festive atmosphere. These sweet and colorful dishes will give you an instant party and the perfect service for milk and cookies.
I love these little cookie stamps. Stamp your name or secret messages on the cookies, and they will be a big hit.
Every cookies and milk party needs some striped straws for milk sipping (especially if you're using those cute glass milk bottles). They immediately set a fun tone — even for grown-ups.
I do believe this might be the perfect cookie jar. I love the scalloped lid, pink enamel and lighthearted quote.
Every now and then you want to serve cookies alongside a little scoop of ice cream. These long, brightly hued spoons are great for getting into the corners of the bowl and scooping out every last drop.
You can't bake cookies without the proper equipment, and this KitchenAid mixer in ice blue makes the job fun.
These glass jars mimic antique French canning jars, and they are lovely containers for things such as flour, sugar and other necessary cookie-baking ingredients. Plus, they are cute enough to display.
Something about polka dots makes me think of sugar cookies, sprinkles, pink icing, chocolate-smeared smiles and happy moments. I'd like to think that this towel evokes all of those things.
I think it's amazing how the proper tools can make light of a task, and this piping bag is no exception. With an easy-squeeze handle, this can even be used by kids.
These lovely coated baking sheets (and the cooling rack) are everything you need for evenly baked goodness.
This foxy little cookie jar begs to be filled up. I love the way the tail curls around the front.
Don't forget about little aprons for tiny helpers! I love the contrasting colors and dotty design on this one.
I love the two-toned shades of this mixing bowl. It's both trendy and useful. Each one comes stamped with a pottery number as well.
This is the unbeatable nonstick surface for all baked goods.
I have a deep affection for vintage rolling pins, and though new, this tapered rolling pin resembles an aged item. It would make for a pretty display in the kitchen.
I like the different tones of wood used for these carved measuring spoons.
