Owl Theme Baby Shower

This past weekend I helped my sister-in-law  and one of her friends throw an owl theme baby shower…

owl themed baby shower

We went with an owl theme based on what we could see from her nursery, and for my crafts I kept it real simple and cheap by buying patterned scrapbook paper and cutting it into a bunch of cute things with my Silhouette Cameo:

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out a bunch of different paper owls that we hung up everywhere- painter’s tape on the backs of ones stuck to the walls and clothes pins for ones hanging off the blinds.

Each week Silhouette has a free downloaded cut shape, and last week it was feathers so I used the same scrapbook paper to cut out a bunch. Each guest wrote their best guess and put it into an  (owl paper wrapped) shoebox. The winner will get a prize in the mail!

I used  owl patterned scrapbook paper to make this adorable banner, which we hung on shelves leaned to the wall (it was too heavy to hang directly on the wall with tape).

I used more of the owl patterned scrapbook paper to make this adorable banner, which we hung on shelves leaned to the wall (it was too heavy to hang directly on the wall with tape).

I also went ahead and made these owl cupcakes I have had pinned FOREVER:

Chocolate cupcake mix, oreos, and m&m’s. I made 24, so I bought 2 packages of oreos just to make sure I had enough “eyes”

My sister in law’s mom is also quite the crafter and she made this AMAZING owl out of diapers, a receiving blanket, and a few other odds and ends. The “log” helped him stand up straight:

so cute!! I love the flower eyes.

So cute!! I love the flower eyes.

She also made these great favors, filled with socks and candy for each guest:

So I think it’s safe to say we were pretty owl-d out, but it was all really cute and the mom-to-be loved it🙂.

I freaking love theme parties!!
