an owl shower

My friend and I threw a shower for another dear friend over the weekend. When thinking of a theme I couldn't get owls out of my head.

The invitation: The baby had already come so I said "Look whooo's here" instead of "Look whooo's having a baby."
a matching banner:
owl cookies: I used the same method I used HERE

yummy mint chocolate cupcakes
I found this remnant at Joann's for $2. It was the perfect colors and reminded me of owl eyes. I had to make a table runner out of it.

I couldn't resist making this fun owl as a gift. I got the pattern for free from Toad's Treasures, HERE. It was so fun and easy to make, I'm dying to make a million more. Seriously people, this was a half hour project with scraps I had on hand.
It was a fun party with great friends, I'm very blessed to be surrounded by such amazing people.

I'll be linking HERE.

This is just ADORABLE!!! I threw a "bee" themed shower this weekend since my SIL didn't find out what she's having...hence "What's it going to bee.." LOL. I absolutely love the owl idea! So so so cute!

Great job!

So cute!! Thanks for the link to the owl pillows! I have already made two and I know I will make more. They are so easy and turned out super cute!

Katie's Nesting Spot said...

Half an hour you say? That is a ridiculously short amount of time for such a sweet snuggle friend! I love all the cute touches you put into the shower. I also had a few "meet the baby" showers so I really like your clever twist on the wording. Looks like a fun time! Thank you for joining us at A Crafty Soiree! I hope you'll come back next week and link up again!

I'm making the owl stuffed pillow. I printed the pattern but it does not have the first layer of blue for the eyes and it makes SUCH a difference. Do you have that somewhere or did you just eyeball it? Thanks. Looking forward to the finished project.

Kalleen at Second Street said...

Molly, I'm sorry I just eyeballed it. Good Luck
