You need a milk and cookie bar at your wedding reception
Do you plan on having kids attend your wedding? This is a controversial question. I honestly think you should include them in your celebration. There are wonderful ways to make them feel special and a part of the party. Therefore, you need a milk and cookie bar at your wedding reception.
You can make it real cutesy too.
Actually, you will need little milk jugs. Put them in a metal bucket and keep ice on them. Keep them refrigerated until just before the reception begins.
For the cookie jars, I got these from Walmart. They are Anchor Hocking Heritage Hill. Get the 2 gallon size. Or order them from Amazon here. (affiliate link)
To make them cohesive with the rest of the decorations, I ran burlap ribbon around them and used hot glue to hold them on tight.
Add lace ribbon in the middle of the burlap and hot glue the ends.
Add a little clothes pin. Hot glue it on. After you decide which cookies you are going to serve, print out a label of what kind of cookie it is. Cut it out. Clip it in the clothes pin.
I purchased cookies in bulk from Sam’s Wholesale Club. You could even ask aunts and grandmas if they would make some for you to serve. They usually like being part of the preparation, and being included.
I made these little blocks of wood to add to the ambiance. See how to make them here.
If you want the kids to be able to take some when they leave, use paper bags.
You can get a package of paper bags from your local grocery store. The grooms sister and mother painted the bags. Aren’t they cute? Made a cute table decoration too.
In conclusion, I have used these jars a multitude of times for different things. They are nice to have.
