Once upon a time, there was a birthday party blogger with a new idea for making s’mores. Her first attempt was yummy, but it was too messy. Her second try required an ingredient that doesn’t actually exist. But on the third try, Google came to the rescue and the recipe was just right.
Owl parties continue to be an extremely popular birthday theme, I think in part because the concept is so flexible. The owl theme works for any age, as well as boys and girls. I’m planning a party right now with adorable owl printables by Lindi of Love the Day. So last night I went on the hunt for owl party favors. Here are my favorite favor and packaging finds from Etsy.
1 – Owl favor box by Cake-a-doodle-doo
2 – Mini travel chalkboard by Chic Mama Covers
3 – Personalized favor totes by Ellery’s Designs
4 – Owl ribbon by Katie Bird Studio
5 – Owl soaps by Favors by Angelique
6 – Zipper pencil case by SSK Designs
7 – Bottle cap necklace and charms by Badge Boutique
8 – Hand puppet by Maria Palito
“Oh my gosh! How did you think of that?” It’s one of the questions I hear after parties sometimes, and it’s so sweet. But of course, parties don’t come to me full-blown. Creating the details is work, but I do have a trick to make it easier.
Not long ago, I asked my Facebook followers about their mother’s words of wisdom. So today, I’m turning the blog over to you! Happy early Mother’s Day!
A few months back, I spied some adorable flower poms at a wholesaler floral warehouse. They were so big and cute and I had to have at least five for a party yet-to-be-planned. I thought they’d be cheap, but the small ones were $35 each — at the wholesaler. At. the. wholesaler. Couldn’t believe it. Time to make my own!
