Bottled Milk

I had this vision in my head to have chocolate chip cookies and milk in old fashioned glass bottles as my wedding favor. I thought it sounded so vintage and cute. However, the logistics of it all may make the idea but a dream. I ordered sample glass bottles online and they arrived last week. While they are very cute…I’m starting to second guess myself. Friends and family have voiced concerns that no one will take the milk and that it isn’t something that will keep well. My bubble is totally burst! :(

    I think it’s a great idea. I want to do the same thing but have oreo’s instead of cookies. Also, I want to have the milk and oreo’s for dessert and not for them to take home. Would you like to do that? Where did you get the bottles? They are adorable! And I say…it’s your wedding…do what you want. :)

    I’m loving the milk and cookies idea but I also can’t find anywhere to buy mini-cartons.

    Has anyone found anything?

    If you are looking for the little school milk cartons call your local elementary school and ask what vendor they use! I am sure that they would be willing to share their mini-carton supplier and it would give the secretaries something to giggle about.

    it is funny how things change so much – i hope that ms. strawberry went with her original vision back in 2006 — since cookies and milk are now everywhere!!! yes, even as favors.

    just goes to teach me one lesson in this whole wedding planning process… just because something has not been done before, doesn’t mean that i can’t be the first one to do it!!! =)

    good luck planning everyone, and just remember to be true to yourself!

    As a caterer – you have them provide an iced bed for the milk bottles to sit in – then they are nice and cold – with a linen napkin front that they can pull them and sit them on to put their straw in – awesome idea – but offer flavors as well as citrus water and a refreshing lemonade! Good LUck!
