Our Birds & Owl Themed Baby Shower
Our Baby Shower would have to be one of the most Beautiful Parties that I have designed. I fell in love with the Gorgeous Birds & Owls Design so much that I decorated Baby Paige’s Room with the Decorations after Our Baby Shower. It was a Non-Traditional Shower and my Partner attended the Celebrations along with all of Our Family & Friends – both Male & Female! There were No Party Games. Just a Celebration of Our Baby Girl who would be arriving in under 3 months.
Baby Name Announcement & Belly Painting
We found out in February that we were having a Baby Girl at Our Gender Reveal Party. Once we knew her Gender everyone was asking what we were going to name her. I thought it would be a Lovely Surprise to announce Our Precious Baby Girl’s Name at the Baby Shower. There were Posters all over the Walls at the Baby Shower with Acrostik Poems using her name – Paige Grace Lynch. But my Favourite Name Announcement on the day was having my Belly Painted in the Birds & Owl Party Theme and my Baby Girl’s Name. Becc from Face Painting by Becc did an Amazing Job of painting my vision. The Photos captured on the day were a Wonderful Keepsake that I will forever treasure.
Baby Shower Decorations
The Beautiful Birds & Owl Party Theme is Available to Purchase from my Store. Almost all of the Decorations are Personalised with the Mum-to-Be’s Name. This is one of my Favourite designs and one that I created especially for my Baby Girl when I was pregnant with her.
We are quite fortunate to have a Large Undercover Entertaining Area where I could set-up the Tables & Chairs for the Baby Shower. There were 3 x Tables with Chairs for the Guests; a Trestle Table for the Cake & Party Food; and a Smaller Trestle for the Favours & Presents.
The Party Theme colours were Purple, Blue & Pink and the tables were clothed to match. The Guest tables were dressed with Pink & Blue Disposable Plastic Tablecloths. Handy Tip – To stop the Tablecloths from flying around in the wind we used Clear Packing tape to secure them. Ensure that they are taped under the table so that they can’t be seen by the Guests or in photographs. The Trestle tables were clothed with Purple Satin and secured with Table Clips and skirted with Purple Tulle.
As Centre pieces for the Tables I brought Bunches of Fake Flowers from the $2 shop. The Fake Flowers were put in Large Coffee Jars that I had collected. Some Jars were filled with Purple Decorative Stones that I brought from the $2 Shop and adorned with a Purple Satin Bow. The other Jar Centrepieces were decorated with Tutu Skirts. The Tutus were given to me by a Friend and were made using Elastic and Sequin Fabric. Very Similar to how you would make a skirt for a doll using the jar’s width as the waist measurement.
Being Budget Conscience, I brought Plastic Champagne Flutes for Our Guests. They looked Gorgeous jazzed up with some Purple Curling Ribbon. Just tie the Curling ribbon around the Champagne Flute’s stem and Curl using a pair of scissors. The Final touch on the tables were Bottles of Rose – because you can never have enough Pink at a Girls Baby Shower. The Wine Bottles were also decorated with matching Birds & Owl Wine Bottle labels which read: ‘Beau & Katie’s Baby Shower’.
Prints & Banners
Birds & Owl Pennant Banners (Bunting) lined the Party Area and read: ‘Baby Girl’. Scattered underneath were Tissue Paper Pom Poms from eBay. I have never actually been able to create a Pom Pom from these decorations but I think they look fabulous as the flower shapes hung around the room.
Birds & Owl Poster Prints decorated the Area with Adorable Acrostik Poems using Our Baby Girl’s Name – Paige. I have added some FREE Printables which we used on the day so that you can Print at Home for your Own Party. Just Click on the Pictures Below.
Baby Shower Favours
For Baby Shower Favours I brought these Cute Little Baby Bottles from Ali Express. They were very Cheap about 50pcs for $20 and they came already decorated with Ribbons & Decals. To match the Colour Scheme I brought them in Pink & Blue and filled them with Pink & Blue Jelly Beans inside.
Baby Shower Cake & Party Food
We were fortunate enough that one of Our Friends is a Very Talented Baker and made Our Baby Shower Cake. Not only was it delicious but it looked Gorgeous and fit in so well with our Birds & Owl Party Theme. The Cupcake Toppers were from my Personalised Party Store and part of my Birds & Owl Party Range. Iced with Purple Icing, of course. The rest of the foods I tried to coordinate with the Party Theme. Pink Watermelon and Blue, Pink & Purple Musk Sticks. Cookies because they are so delicious and addictive when your pregnant!
And Iced Biscuits which were so simple and easy and adored by the Kids. To make the Iced Biscuits I brought Milk Arrowroot Biscuits and Iced them with Chocolate Icing. I then sprinkled Pink & White Sprinkles on them and that was it! They are Super Easy & Cheap to make and can be made to fit in with any Party Colour Scheme.
What an Amazing time we all had celebrating the impending Arrival of Our Baby Girl with Family & Friends. She was spoilt with so many Beautiful Gifts and I have so many Amazing Memories from that day. It’s hard to think that Our Little Princess is now 6 months old!
