Owl-Themed Baby Shower

It was a hoot!

Come on...it was bound to be said eventually.

Our friends, Brad and Cristina already have one kiddo, Lyric, who happens to be one of the sweetest and most adorable little boys ever but in just a few short weeks a precious baby GIRL will join the family! If there's anything worth celebrating its a baby, and so well over a month ago  recently we threw them another one of our infamous co-ed baby showers. This time around it was owl-themed because Baby Girl's room will be done in owls. And I am SUCH a fan of this idea! I love owls!

The first project I worked on a few weeks before the shower was a wreath that Crisitna could hang on the door of the baby's room or even on the wall. It started with this little gal...

Made with felt, fabric, thread and hot glue


I put her on a yarn-wrapped wreath with some felt "branches" and some paper flowers and buttons and voila!


It's probably one of my favorite wreaths I've ever made. That's why I've started on a similar one for myself...haha!


Then came party day! Our amazing friend Amy was the hostess with the mostest and had decorated her house with the cah-utest stuff. I brought along any and all bird-themed paraphernalia as well. Here's some of the  decorations:


The money tree with a couple of my pretty little silver birds I got from WUSLU



This cute little guy usually sits on my front porch


Owl balloons!


Amy made this adorable diaper banner and owl-themed diaper cake!


I got this trivet from Goodwill months ago so of course he got in on the action :)


On to the food!!


Can't find an owl-shaped cookie cutter? No problem! Amy made this with a tulip-shaped cutter. So smart, right??


Me and my friend Brenda made this too-cute owl and nest cupcakes. I got the idea for the owls HERE


My stupid memory card got full before I could get any pictures of the guests and all the fun games Amy had planned. However, if you do happen to plan an owl-themed baby shower for any of your friends, you have to play Whoo's Whoo (haha, so clever...). It's simple: have all of your guests bring a picture of themselves when they were a baby and have everyone guess whoo's whoooo! This was so fun, and who doesn't love looking at old pictures??
