REAL PARTIES: Anthropologie Owl Baby Shower {Part 1}

Anthropologie Owl Baby Shower

Blown. Away. Yep… that pretty much sums up how I felt after receiving images of this gorgeous “Anthropologie Owl Baby Shower“. Wow!

From frozen lemonade served in mason jars to owl-shaped paper hand fans to stunning floral arrangements displayed in pretty bottles and vintage vases, this party is overflowing with charm and thoughtful, creative details…

The baby shower was held in honor of Carlie from Gabriel Ryan, and it probably won’t surprise you to learn that there were some very talented people involved in putting it together… including Carlie herself, Jesi from Jesi Haack Weddings, Carissa of JL Designs, and Melody of Sweet and Saucy Shop (wait ’til you see the gorgeous dessert buffet, below!).

There are so many inspiring ideas and beautiful photos (courtesy of Gabriel Ryan) to share that I decided to break this post up into 2 parts.

Here in Part 1, you’ll find lovely images of the flowers, decor, jewelry favors, and dessert buffet… starting with this incredible shot of the table centerpiece that I honestly want to blow-up poster size and put on my wall!

The colorful, translucent vases look so pretty all grouped together like this, and primarily all-white blooms add a soft, delicate vibe without competing with the colors in the vases. Yellow pom pom flowers add and a nice pop of color in just a few key places!

And now, the lovely dessert buffet by Sweet and Saucy

The presentation & set up of this buffet looks as delicious as the treats! Tissue and paper pom garlands make for such a pretty backdrop…

Treats included: mini candy bar cupcakes, red velvet and carrot cake flavored cake pops, mini fruit “pizzas”, iced sugar cookies decorated with super-cute purple and yellow owl motifs.

Yes, I’ve seen this on multiple blogs now and it’s definitely worthy! I love the vintage, eclectic look because it feels so casual, yet you know every detail was thought out.
And I love Owls. Here’s a link to an Owl Baby Announcement: http://tonalitydesigns.com/owl.aspx
