Sweet Owl Baby Shower…

Share To:

I am so delighted to share this adorable Owl Baby Shower with you today! Our project coordinator, Toni styled this event at her house and I couldn’t be more proud of how it all turned out! Beautiful job!

From Toni:

I recently had the honor of helping with a baby shower for a sweet first time Mom-to-Be. Kelsey LOVES owls, so we decided to utilize the Owl design that Kim had made for the Operation Give Thanks printables and turn it into a baby shower collection for the shop! My co-host Lindsey helped with all of the yummy food (Hello Mango Berry Salad – Yum!) and the amazing Jessica from Sierra Studios came and captured all of the details. Enjoy!

When the guests first arrived, they were asked to leave a piece of advice for Kelsey and put it in the jar. You can never have too much advice for your first baby!

For the centerpieces, I found these adorable distressed wooden buckets at Hobby Lobby (for 50% off, of course!) and put a small vase inside each one. I then bought a few dozen white roses from Costco and filled the vases. I loved the way it turned out!

The food was scrumptious. This Mango Berry Salad was to die for. And you can’t have a brunch without donuts! Not to mention that a donut tower adds a fun look to the buffet.

Funny story about the framed owls….Kelsey actually painted these for Lindsey to use in her son’s room! When we came up with the Owl theme, Lindsey knew they would be perfect for some added decor. Good idea, Lindsey!

Each of the guests left with a delicious cookie from The Cookie Jar. I absolutely love her designs!

And I’m very pleased to announce that Kelsey gave birth to a healthy baby boy! Welcome to the world Colby!!
Owl Baby Shower Collection coming to the shop soon!

    Absolutely gorgeous! I have to ask where did you get the cake stand’s and glass beverage servers at?

    Rachel….the four tierred plate stand and the ruffled cake stands both came from Costco! And the glass bottle are Starbucks Fappuccino bottles! Again, bought from Costco. It was a splurge just for the bottles, but oh well. 🙂 I really wanted them! Thanks for the sweet words!

    The glass bottles are empty Starbucks Frappuccino bottles! I should probably go add that to the post!

    Super cute baby shower. Love the Frap bottles. I just finished off 8 and have 8 more to go for my Daughter’s Birthday Party on Sunday. I’m drinking sooo much coffee these days! Totally worth it though.

    Karen…those are from Costco. I bought them there last spring and I haven’t seen them since. We get asked about them all of the time, so if one of us sees them there again, we’ll post it on Facebook!
