My sister's "Owl Themed" Baby Shower

As I promised on Friday, here are the pictures from my sister's baby shower this past Saturday. It was a HOOT!!! ;-) It was an owl themed shower and my mom and I made all the decorations!! My sister picked the theme and we ran with it. :-) She got a lot of great stuff and we enjoyed spending time with family and friends. It was a great day!

I only wish Grammy could have been there to enjoy the day with us. I think about her every day but its events like this when I really miss her most. She would have enjoyed the shower so much.

But enough sad talk. Here are some pictures from the shower. :-)

Table set for the shower.

Close up picture of the centerpieces. They were a "Mason" Jar, decorated as an owl in a nest, with little owls hanging from branches. 

This was the centerpiece for Ashlee's table. Its a diaper cake that my mom made for her. She even crocheted the hat on top and the owl toy on the front. 

 The cake table. My mom and I made the pom poms and my sister made the cake and cupcakes.

Cake and cupcakes. We cut all the little owls out using our cricut.

I love the owl theme! The cupcakes were adorable! Are you doing a turtle theme?

Thanks Holly. :-) Yes, my shower will be a sea turtle theme. Its on Saturday, Sept. 10th. I think my mom will be sending out the invites this week. So you should be getting one in the next few days. :-)

So stinkin' cute! I'm a crazy owl lover.... it's bad! ;)

And that is so neat that you and your sister are getting to enjoy all things "pregnancy" together! And what a blessing to have a cousin SO close in age!

Here's proof (ha!)... our sweet Jackson's Halloween costume: http://www.buycostumes.com/Owl-Infant-Toddler-Costume/801452/ProductDetail.aspx

The golfer one is pretty cute too... if the owl ends up not looking so good on once we get it, I think the golfer is our 2nd choice.
