Welcome back! We are super pumped to show you our favorite parts of our styled shoot…the cookie and milk stands!! Make sure to check out part one here if you haven’t seen it. The images are the work of the fabulous Jonda Spurbeck Photographers.
We built the cookie stand by stacking hay bales and laying a windowpane on top. We used apple baskets to give the table some dimension and height, intermingling them with cake stands. We also built a wooden “cookies” sign that hung over the table. From that, we hung oven mitts, a spatula, and a whisk!
The cake was a simple two-tiered beauty that we frosted the morning of. We purposely wanted it to look messy (no really, we did!) and we added chocolate chips piled on the top and around the base of each tier.
The cake topper was a fun and easy DIY. We took two hardboiled eggs, painted faces on them, and set them inside a piece of an egg carton. We added a mini hair flower, bowtie, and wooden heart to finish it off!
Finally, our crowning glory was the milk stand, which took both of our husbands to build. We put chocolate, strawberry, and regular milk in mason jar drink dispensers from Pottery Barn.
We also did a bunch of fun shots in the field, using our props and some wooden signs we made.
We couldn’t resist doing a milk mustache shot! Got milk?
