Owl Party

My friend Darci threw her girls an adorable owl theme birthday party last weekend. Here are photos from the big day.
 These unique owl smores were an original creation of Amy from Living Locurto. Tasty and cute, this theme appropriate spin on an cool weather treat, was a big hit.
Darci pulled inspiration and colors from these fabrics which were used to created banners, owl bean bags and we even used the fabric to line various dishes. The Brown Owl Fabric and Fruit Trees in Cream are both Timeless Treasures fabric designed by Alice Kennedy. The Tangerine-Full moon polka dot fabric is an Amy Butler design.
Oh and in addition to cupcakes and owl smores Darci made these tasty acorn cookies. Dandelions and Lace has a helpful tutorial for making your own. The owl bean bags were used as decoration and as part of a bean bag toss game. Kids were given chances to toss these owls into holes cut from a large wooden tree (created by Darci's husband). A fun filled activity for the kids.
No opportunity for adding an owl detail was missed. Even these drinking bottles were tagged with an owl label. The orange and white paper straws and paper flags were fun and matched the theme.
Enlisting the help of her 3 year old, Darci created these owl party favors. Made from butcher paper, shaped as owls, filled with trail mix and sewn shut with a sewing machine. A sweet, hand made touch and a great way to include the birthday girl in saying thank you to her friends.
A super cute candle moment from the evening.
No party is complete without an owl pinata. A special request by the birthday girl, who wasn't quite sure if she wanted to hit the owl once it came time for the big moment.
Hand colored owl bags were used to collect "owl guts" from the pinata.
A wonderful, party filled with fun, family and fine feathered friends.
