I’m loving every delicious detail in this gorgeous OWL THEMED BABY SHOWER from Paiges of Style!
Paige created this baby shower for a longtime friend and – in keeping the taste of the guest of honor in mind – noted that she was going for a “girly, vintage Anthropologie feel” with the design. I’d say she accomplished that vibe beautifully! From the cool vintage rentals (why hello, fabulous dresser pictured above!) and wonderfully eclectic mix of party decor to the beautifully styled food and paper details, the result was one very sweet & feminine celebration, adorned with some truly adorable little owls of course… like this one for example:

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Paige…
“A longtime girlfriend of mine, who is the epitome of all things girly, was expecting her own sweet little girl and I knew her shower had to be just perfect and prissy. I decided to mimic the nursery, which was centered around owls and the colors pink and green. She was so thrilled with the outcome – and with the addition of some of my darling owl finds to add to her nursery!
The vibe I was going for was a girly, vintage Anthropologie feel using ticking, lace, and lots of gorgeous flowers. The incredible vintage rentals from Melissa of Pow Wow Vintage Rentals coupled with furniture from my daughter’s room set the stage for a lovely lunch. My husband always had a good laugh at the amount of furniture that leaves our house for every party, or maybe it was a grunt :)
I wanted to create the feeling of a chandelier above the dining table to give it a more formal feel. We hung tissue poms in varying shades of pink from wreaths that my husband hung above the tables using heavy gauge fishing line. I sewed the individual burlap table runners and added the green pom pom trim to add texture and layered vintage dinnerware from Pow Wow Vintage Rentals with hot pink ticking stripe napkins that I sewed.
We kept the flowers simple by using only one type of flower per vase, this kept it easy and I didn’t have to pay a florist for expensive arrangements.
The food was light, simple and summery with the star being the chicken BLT sandwiches, yum! And the desserts were really the hit of the shower. The darling cake pops by Kris of KCreative were so sweet and perfectly matched the paper goods I created. They sat so sweetly in their little nests perched on the feather wreath. Other goodies were the individual peach cobblers, the sugar cookies by Baked and the sweet lemon cake topped with a sugar peony created by Sugar and Stripes Co.
Last but not least, the party favor of a beautiful headband was such a hit among everyone in attendance. My girlfriend is the owner of a beautiful headband and accessories company called True Birds and I knew every guest would love to own of these gems.”
