Owl Themed First Birthday

by Dinah Wulf

I know I’ve showed you my YouTube video for how to make these Owl Decorations (It’s below if you missed it), but I also wanted to share some of the party with you.  I wasn’t able to go early and help set up, but I did get the decorations to my cousin in time so she could.  She did a great job on this Owl Themed First Birthday party for her daughter.

We framed a few pictures from free images we found on Google images to fit the retro owl inspired theme and wrote saying like, “Hooty hoot! Tricia is one!”, “Whooo’s turning one?”, and “Hope you’re having a hoot!”  She also had the banner up, but for some reason no one took a picture of it, so here it is sitting on my floor!

She put fresh flowers and succulents (I love the mixture) in recycled glass jars that I provided for her.  We dressed them up a little with ribbon trim.  The mini flower arrangements were spread throughout the party on the guest tables and food tables.  She placed the owl lawn decorations in the vases which created height and whimsy.

Complete with an original recording of a Happy Birthday song written especially for the birthday girl and owl cupcakes made with Oreo cookie eyes and candy corn beaks, this party was so much fun!

Oh!  Here is the video tutorial for the owls in case you missed it!  I also have the text and photo tutorial if you prefer as well.

Thanks for reading!

P.S.  Here are the Thank You cards I made for my cousin using my AMAZING photo printer.
