Owl Themed Birthday Party + Free Printable

Check out this wonderful owl-themed party hosted by Elena for her daughter Gemma's first birthday. Elena's chose this theme because Gemma's father loves owls and has been collecting owls around his house. Susanna designed the adorable owlet in beautiful muted colors and the forest inspired party decor that included - invite, owlets garland and cupcake toppers, masks to cut out, a big poster with 12 photos of Gemma, one for each month of her first year (behind the dessert table) and a welcome sign.

Elena, who is a professional confectioner, made almost all the yummy treats herself, even the rasberry heart cake. I love the hazelnut owl cupcakes and butter cookies served on slim wooden logs. Lovely!!

There are so many inspiring details and DIY project ideas featured here, I hope you will find one or more for your next party. To get you started, here's one by Susanna - Iron-on baby owl transfer that she created Gemma's romber for her present. For instructions and to download the pdf for free, click here.
