Owl “Meet the Baby” Baby Shower

I had the pleasure to help a client design a baby shower for her sister who was having a baby girl. The parents decided to keep the gender a secret, so we knew we needed to go with a neutral theme. My client thought an owl baby shower was the perfect fit

What I loved most about this event, was that it was going to be held after the baby was born, making it a “Meet the Baby,” shower. I LOVE it when my clients decide to do something non-traditional!

I had SO much fun with this project, and absolutley adore the client and her family. Take a stroll through the pictures, and I’ll throw in the details in case you are planning an Owl themed shower, so I can help you out!

When the guests arrived, they were asked to grab an “advice card,” for the new Mommy and Daddy.

I’ve had so many people ask me what was inside these clear ornaments. All I did was remove the cap, and stuff them with cotton candy. But let me tell you what… cotton candy is NOT my friend. I recommend using a candy if you want to achieve the same look without the stress of the cotton candy melting and shrivelling away!

I happened to run across an owl piggy bank at the mall a few days before the event, and just knew it would make a great addition to the dessert table.

Getting the idea from an owl shower I had seen before, I turned tissue poms in to owls!

My client found a great wooden backdrop for the dessert table. I tied the “woodland” theme in by adding branches to the menu cards {see below}, and bird nests.

My client makes “the best” cake pops around, and is so talented with the designs. Sweet.Sassy made these darling little owl pops.

Really? How perfect were these? The best part? The Oreo’s came in green and pink already! Woot Woot!

The family came up with a brilliant idea of to play a game during the shower, that allowed each guest to hold and snuggle the baby. Every 5 minutes, a timer went off and the baby was to be passed to the next guests. During your 5 minutes, you were asked to sit in front of a photo booth (With an adorable pink baby quilt as the background) and get your picture taken. I LOVED this idea. What a special keepsake to have. The mommy then put the picture of the guest with the baby, next to the advice card they filled out, in a scrapbook to remember the day.

To make sure to keep all of the “germies,” off of the little one, guests received miniature hand sanitizers as favors, with a sign reading, “Sanitize Before Snuggles.” Cute. Cute.
