Owl Baby Shower

This weekend we celebrated a beautiful momma to be with an owl themed little girl shower. I'll first share this amazing cake by my friend, Jes. She is incredible, and literally just makes beautiful cakes like this for fun. She can see an image, and pretty much recreate anything. The best part was we actually ate only at the back of the cake, because the mom to be was wincing when we suggested that we cut the front. She took the front half home for leftovers.

The owl sat at top of a wedding cake stand that was used for a friend's wedding previously. This was also paired with many other desserts and decorations. Another sweet friend made the beautiful sign for the new baby.
How sweet are these owl treats? They were amazing, and had a cream cheese filling.  I may or may not have had several of these.

I created this adorable guest book plate for everyone to sign for the baby. I cut out an adhesive vinyl owl and simply placed it in the center of the plate. The ceramic plate came from Target for about $4. I purchased a Sharpie paint pen for ceramic surfaces and everyone signed it. I also wrote on the back the occasion and date of the shower. I purchased the white frame on stand from the Michael's dollar aisle, and I placed them throughout the shower.

The milk jar glasses from Michaels were so sweet. We added a vinyl label that I cut out on my Silhouette, and Jes wrote all of the guests names on them. We had to use our favorite party item...the paper straws too.

I put a Whooo's Hungry sign on the main table, and you can see we had plenty of delicious goodies.

We kept the decorations simple. I bought a few ceramic owls from Michaels and spray painted them in the party colors. Wynn let me borrow her precious W and it just happened to match the party decorations perfectly.  The baby's middle name is Love, and that is why I added the word love next to the W.  Another frame sign was labeled gifts, and the guests placed them on the ground in front of this desk.

I cut out a vinyl "baby girl" saying to place on a plain white canvas. It went great behind the chair for the mom of honor. I found the cute owl pillow at a kids consignment sale, and it was the perfect pillow for the mom to be's chair.

The owl wreath hung on the door where guests entered. It was a huge hit with the party guests, and many of them said they knew what house to come in since I had shared it on the blog earlier last week.
I scattered a few more decorations around the room to add a little bit of the shower colors.

My friend, Jes, made two beautiful diaper cakes for the new mom. I adore this sweet owl.
 This diaper tower is topped off with the Angel Dear owl mini blanket. It is the perfect topper.

I bought this chipboard album from Michaels, and created a book for the guests to write their thoughts to the baby. I stamped each page of the book with a pink owl.

Here are Jes and I with the mom to be, Kirsten. She was certainly glowing, and she told us it was the most amazing party anyone had every thrown for her. That made me smile!
