Whooo had an awesome birthday? My daughter!
Yes, we had a real hoot at my daughter’s owl-themed first birthday.
So, I’m sharing some awesome DIY party ideas for you!
Owl Party Decor
Let’s start with the ambiance. My father in law suggested that we hang a lot of balloons above the party area.
It looks fun and preppy, doesn’t it?
Now let’s take a look at the stage. We had planned an elaborate backdrop consisting of gold circles, pompoms, banners, and ropes.
Unfortunately, due to time constraints and miscommunication, we weren’t able to execute our stage look well. Nevertheless, everything was a labor of love.
To make the stage lively, we dressed it up with banners and lanterns.
Owl Party Dessert Table
For the cake area, some of the lanterns were made into owls. The dessert bar on the left has an assortment of candies and baked goodies. The “1” standee on the right was made using cardboard and scrap fabric.
As the centerpiece for the dessert table, Mishi thought of having a cake with a crocheted owl topper.
Remember, the amigurumi owl I made? She embellished her tiara with pretty little gems. Hoot hoot!
We also got FREE printables ( I must confess, I’m getting addicted to these). The birthday banner was from How to nest for less.
On the other hand, the cupcake toppers were from One Charming Day. As for her lovely owl princess cake and sweet pastries, I’ll focus on them and the other party suppliers in my next post.
For the guest tables, we had three setups.
We weren’t able to take great pictures of the table settings so here are the mockups instead.
To keep up with the theme, we also wore clothes with owls. My friend Mishi made this boutonniere for my husband. It looks exquisite, doesn’t it?
Needless to say, we OWL had a great time putting it all together for our little girl.
Which idea will you try for your next party?
