I’ve been secretly helping plan a baby shower for a dear friend of mine and I’ve been having to sit on all the details because she reads this blog!  Now that the cat is out of the bag I get to share all of the fun with you! Krista’s SIL, Amanda, decided on an Owl Always Love You theme since Krista went with owls for the nursery.  We went with a chic purple, green and gray color scheme and I got to work designing the invites and other party decor.  I have made many of the items available for free download and the links will be included at the bottom of the post!

These are the invites I designed:

If you are a follower, this owl might look familiar.  That is because I used it for the nursery artwork I did for Everleigh last year!  I had already designed the invite so when Krista asked me to make some artwork, I used the artwork I created for that!  Sneaky, sneaky!
We decided on only two games for this crowd, and went with DIY lottery tickets:
And my Celebrity Baby Name Gameboard, which I updated and made a bit more girly:

I also created a matching banner and we wrapped up some boxes to use as cupcake stands to add some height to the table:

And of course, I made some cupcake toppers to supplement these adorable cupcakes and cake made by a friend of the mom-to-be:

I made water bottle labels that we placed on the U-shaped table layout along with confetti and chocolate dipped oreos that Amanda made:
I made some Owl Circle Cutouts to create some table decor items:

This bucket held the favors for the party goers.  Amanda added pink lollipops and pink, white and red M&M’s to cellophane bags tied up with pink ribbon. Amanda also brought a photo mat that she decorated to use as a guest book.  She inserted some 3D ultrasound pics until Miss Everleigh arrives:

Grandma-to-be requested that we do a ribbon plate, so here is Krista being a good sport:

Don’t hurt me Krista! {Doesn’t she make a beautiful mom-to-be? It suits her!} It was a great little party and Krista had NO IDEA, which makes it even better! Now we just have to wait until March until the little peanut arrives.
Oh look… I found another picture of the tissue paper balls with owl pendents…

 Love this lady!
