I used to want to be Martha Stewart, at least where party planning was concerned. Then I met Elle and I decided it is much more fun to just go to her parties. Seriously, Martha. I'm pretty sure Elle could take you. Even better than just going to the party is being asked to document all the fun in photos. Last year I met Elle when I photographed her son, Isaac's first birthday party. It was so cool I doubted she could top it. Boy, was I wrong. This year's shindig was crazy cool! She chose a "milk and cookies" theme and the photos describe it better than words can.
Yes, that's Cookie Crisp cereal. I got all nostalgic for my childhood. And homemade Oreos - OH MY!
Cookie mix in a jar for favors...
Guests signed a Holstein cow spot with birthday wishes then attached it to the felt "cow hide" on the wall.
Elle found these milk bottles online from a farmer in the Midwest.
What kid would not LOVE this???
Okay, maybe the one without teeth...
Elle is a pretty amazing photographer herself, so she really only needs me so she can enjoy the party. This is an album of shots she took of Isaac enjoying milk and cookies before the big day.
Thank you, Elle, for the honor of documenting yet another fantastic party and a beautiful family. It's always a blast!
