The NIGHT OWL Party


There she is! Owl P.J's and all!

Last week was my Princess Cupcake's 7th birthday party, "Night-Owl" themed!  It was so much fun!  There were 16 girls in their pajama's running around here; what more can a 7-year old princess ask for?

I love working with themes!  When it all comes together, after a few bumps in the road, I am giddy and filled with excitement.

The Details
     Theme: Night Owl Pajama
     Color Scheme: Pink and Blue
Activities: -Decorate and embellish Clipboard

Happy Birthday!

The embellished clipboard and owl calendar was inspired when I saw this free printable owl calendar.  I loved it but didn't want to print it out here at home, so I sent the file to my local printer and they took care of it for me.  The clipboards we found at the Dollar Tree.  The girls loved the whole craftiness to making their clipboards their own and they turned out so cute!

The felt owl clips I made after I saw this tutorial over at Less-Than-Perfect Life of Bliss.  They took me a lot longer than I had planned, but in the end I think it was totally worth it!  They turned out so amazing and the girls LOVED them!

The owl popcorn bags were quick and easy to make.  I just cut the top off the brown paper bag, added circles for eyes that I cut out with my Cricket, and a triangle for the nose.  They were definitely worth making! 

The owl cake turned out...well let's just say it didn't really turn out as well as I had hoped for.  It made me wish I would have made my own, but I was running short on time.  The guests didn't seem to mind, they ate them anyway:-)

I had my Mom, my daughter's God Mother and her daughter, and a family friend to help me during party.  I was thrilled to have them and they were so much help!

At the end of the night, I was happy with the way everything had turned out and the Birthday Girl was all smiles.  A SUCCESS!

Have a wonderful week!
