Molly's Vintage Valentine 6th Birthday

Our MollyB is the Lover in our family. Always over hugging, over snuggling, over feeling everything for everyone. So I think it apropos that she was born on the 15th, so close to "Lovers' Day." Last Sunday, we had a Valentine themed birthday party for her at our house. Molly had a blast celebrating with her girlfriends and the whole day turned out fun, festive and oh so pretty!

And my little {secret} from this party? The glass milk bottles! Sweet LuLu has them for sale. But one day when I was doing the dishes and drinking my afternoon "pick-me-up" I had a brain storm. For a few weeks before the party I drank one of these everyday and saved the bottle!

Remove the lables, wash and dry, add AndersRuff cute bottle wraps and personalized logos and Wha-LA!
Gotta Love vintage inspired milk bottles as a result of creative recycling! We filled them with Strawberry Milk and Raspberry Lemonade.
