If you are planning a baby shower and you’re looking for a cool and unique theme, how about planning an owl-themed baby shower? This classic nursery theme works for a baby boy or a baby girl and has a lot of possibilities. The following article includes some suggestions for planning a well-thought out owl themed baby shower.
Personalized, Professional Invitations
Invite guests to the baby shower in style with a owl themed baby shower invitation. Cute invitations that are professionally designed and printed are more affordable than you might think. They’re not much more expensive than impersonal store bought invitations and can be personalized with anything you can think up. Remember to include the basics like date, time, place and RSVP information as well as any special instructions you may have for the guests.
Beautifully Coordinated Decorations
Start with the basics. Purchase a Personalized Owl Baby Shower Banner that matches your invitations to welcome your guests to the party. Take color cues from the banner for balloons, streamers, plates, napkins, tablecloths, etc. For a beautiful and practical centerpiece, a diaper cake is a necessity. Customize the diaper cake with matching owl graphics and personalized text. Then, further personalize the diaper cake by adding small gifts for the new baby.
Once you have the basics in place, get creative! Use personalized favor tags and sticker labels to customize store bought decorations. Stick labels to plastic cups, game boards, and favor bags. For centerpieces, layer scrapbook paper purchased from your local craft store with the top portion of a personalized candy bar wrapper or favor tags on vases. Fill the vases with wildflowers arrangements for a natural and beautiful look. Use the remaining candy bar wrappers to wrap the mom-to-be’s favorite chocolate bar to use as favors for your guests.
Easy and Impressive Favors
Looking for a unique and do it yourself favor? Make chocolate owls. Purchase an owl candy mold and make milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate owls. Put them in personalized cellophane gift bags for an easy party favor. Or make large owl chocolate lollipops. Swirl the melted chocolate before pouring it into the mold and let it dry. Attach a personalized favor tag and display the owls in a flower pot stuck into Styrofoam and topped with floral moss.
If do it yourself is not your style, guests will love getting a beautifully scented soy candle favor and a cute, scented owl soap favor to go along with your theme. Package these two together for an inexpensive, but much appreciated favor.
Carry the theme throughout the party through the entire party with some final touches. Guests will love leaving the mom-to-be notes of advice on parenthood on these adorable notes of advice cards. And, of course, the mom-to-be will want to thank all the guests for their warm wishes and wonderful gifts. Purchase some matching thank you notes to make it easy for the new mom to show her appreciation when she has soooo much on her mind to get ready for her new miracle!
