Sweet & Dreamy Owl Party Dessert Table

What a hoot! Gayle‘s daughter Imogen loves owls, so for her birthday, Gayle created a  super sweet and dreamy Owl Love Dessert Table. Macy adores owls too (actually, we all do!); I can picture her loving this, especially the adorable owl cakes and owl cake pops with heart shaped faces. This is great inspiration for Valentine’s Day too!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– DIY owl ornaments filled with pastel pink jelly beans
– Adorable fondant-topped owl cakes and cupcake toppers
– Gingerbread bird houses (!)
– Tissue Pom Owls & coordinating party garlands

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Gayle

Imogen adores owls and often can be heard hooting around the house as she impersonates them. The party that I created had the owl theme followed through on everything from the invitations to the buffet labels to the twin chocolate mud cakes I had made. Wooden craft trees were painted and Christmas baubles stuffed with jellybeans and turned into matching owls.

Does anyone know where I could find ornaments like the ones she used? I’m having a this little piggy shower and think these would be adorable!

Gayle SAYS:

Hi Courtney, this is Gayle (I created the party). I don’t know if I’ll be much help as I’m in Australia, but I got them from a big craft superstore, so I’m guessing the American equivalent would be Michael’s?
They are clear Christmas baubles. Otherwise, I’ve spotted them on ebay before too. Good luck in hunting them down (pigs WOULD look fantastic!)

And how remiss of me to not say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone for those lovely, lovely comments. I’m no event stylist, I do invitation and stationery ranges and I’m nowhere in the league of many of you. To hear such wonderful things really does make me just a tad chuffed! Thank you. :)

Sandy Otero SAYS:

I want to decorate my baby shower this way. Are there step by step instructions?

Gayle SAYS:

Hi Sandy, there are no step by step instructions on how to create this party however if there’s anything you’re wanting to create just send me an email at [email protected] and I can help you any way I can.

There is a tutorial on my website on how I made the cake pops (substitute the Tim Tam biscuits for something like Oreos) http://www.iwillinvitations.com.au/blog/making-owl-cake-pops-for-an-owl-birthday-party/

and all the decoration is for sale on my site (either as printables or made up products) and the cape can be purchased by making an enquiry to our email.

Hope that helps. :)
