Owl Themed Party (hoo hoo whoo is twoo?)

Our Little Man is Two!!!!! When and how did that happen?? Just can't believe how quickly this little man is growing up. And what an amazing man he is growing up to be, with a heart of gold, totally loveable, courageous and 100% fearless. He really knows how to keep us on our toes and drive us crazy but at the same time with just one little smile from him he has us wrapped around his little pinkie. This little man really does pull on our heart strings!!!!

So I know I am getting all mushy and stuff so I will stop for now and actually talk about what this post is about: An Owl Themed Party!!! Lets just say I went a little owl crazy when putting this party together. There were owls everywhere from beginning to end of the party. Lets take a look: 
I even had an owl infestation in my flowers:
For the kiddies food table I decided to go for a brown and blue theme, and all the food was linked to the owl theme:
 For the adults table I decided to go with a more elegant colour scheme of brown and creme, and of course there were owls present on the adult table too:
Did you spot all the "pieces of tree" I used to write what each food item was?? When I saw them I just had to use them for this party. I really thought it was a cute little touch.

I also had a couple of activities for the kids to do: colouring in and playing (okay really going wild) with balloons. The balloons was defiantly the favourite of the day:
After all the fun activities and the loading up on food and cookies and all the sweet goodness, we had even more sweet goodness...............................The Cake:
And of course there were party favours for everyone to take home:
I gave each child a bowl with a chocolate brownie biscuit. I turned each bowl into an owls "nest" and after adding the "owls" I also added "eggs" (smarties).

This party was very cute and was so much fun to put together. Just a quick side note with this party:
I think I might have made a bit of an oops when I put this party together. Remember the "nest" with the eggs and owl???
Well as cute as it was and as much as I loved it, I think doing it was a mistake because when I offered my older son an egg he took it and then gave it back to me and said "I don't want to eat baby owl"!!!! Oops!!!!! And he hasn't had eggs since.
