On the Tree Tops Owl Invitation and Baby Shower

I had a hoot of a time throwing a baby shower this summer for my sister-in-law, Elizabeth. She just briefly mentioned that she might incorporate owls in the baby's room and I went owl crazy. I had been thinking about designing an owl invitation, so I jumped at the chance to not only design an owl invitation, but a banner, favor tags and throw an owl themed party! It was a ton of fun to pull everything together. After designing the On the Tree Tops Owl Invitation I incorporated the green, white, pink and purple colors and the woodsy feel throughout the shower. I found a great round, wooden basket chip and dip tray and wooden owl at The Basket Peddler in downtown Cornelia, Georgia. For favors I filled clear bags with Jelly Bellies to resemble little eggs and tied them with green and white polka dot ribbon and matching owl favor tags. I wish I had seen these adorable Owl Sugar Cookies from Truly Scrumptious Cookies on Etsy, they would have been perfect. I used a twig wreath to surround the ice cream bowl for our brownie Sunday bar, but used some of my family crystal parfait glasses to give it an extra special feel. During my search for all things owls, I found this lovable Hooter the Owl Pillow at BedBuggs Boutique on Etsy, which would make a perfect gift. Of course the On the Tree Tops Owl Invitation, banner, favor tags are all available in my Tiger Lily Invitations Etsy Shop. Stop by an check them out if you have an owl occasion in your future!
