HWTM in Pregnancy Magazine: Owl-Themed Baby Shower

owl themed baby shower

Have a baby shower in the works? If you’re looking for a fun concept, here’s an owl-themed baby shower that I created for this month’s issue (April 2009) of Pregnancy magazine, featuring super-cute plush owls, colorful feathers, woodsy elements, and more!

P.S. This could also be a fun theme for a kids birthday party… just change the title to something like “Look Hoo’s Turning ONE!”

What an absolutely unique idea! I love the totally natural feel of the shower…here’s hoping I have the opportunity to use this idea soon. ☺

Hi there-

Love this idea! I’m an owl addict and am going to have to share this with my friends (maybe they’ll take the hint that I’d love this theme for my baby shower……………..for the baby that’s not on the way yet). Never hurts to plan.

Check out the “owl crazy” category on my blog – lots of great owl stuff that goes right along w/ this theme. Here are some cute owl onesies that I’ve stocked up on to give as baby gifts: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=22968002

Love your blog!

Love, love, love this theme! I am going to suggest this theme to my mom and sis for our upcoming baby arrival. What would be a theme appropriate favor?

I just found these cute “owl always love you” soaps that are meant to be for wedding favors but think they go along with the baby shower idea. I think I might use them as a favor for the owl themed baby shower I am going to throw for a friend in a few weeks! http://supergiftplace.0.kateaspenshops.com/product/owl-always-love-you-scented-soap.html

Ann –
Those owl soaps are ADORABLE! Thanks for sharing!!

Zudannie –
Here’s another cute owl soap favor idea from plum party: http://www.plumparty.com/22653.html

or these chocolate owl lollipops would be cute wrapped in cellophane and tied with a colorful ribbon

and these mini owl notepads/post it holders would also be cute (they’re featured as the favor idea in the article too) http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_gallery_5&listing_id=19720505

Good luck! :)

Hi I just read this looking for ideas for an owl themed nursery. I loved your ideas for the owl themed shower… so cute!! Just wanted to let you know there is a cute owl set of onsies, towels burpcloths, etc @ http://www.shopbegora.com They are hand made by two women I just met this weekend @ a craft show. Their stuff is so nice. You should check it out

Love this! I did a baby announcement with an owl and said “Whoooo’s here?” You can see it on my website at: http://tonalitydesigns.com/owl.aspx
I’ve been doing invitations for a few years now and I’m finally launching my portfolio site. Hopefully it inspires people as much as HWTM! I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t discovered HWTM. To quote from Wedding Date, “I think I’d miss you even if we’d never met.”
