simple owl birthday party

I like owls.
(Well, some owls; some of them are downright creepy.)
And I don't want a full blown owl collection.

So I thought that choosing an owl theme
for Sweet Pea's first birthday party
would be the perfect time
to showcase my affection for owls in a fairly disposable way.

We celebrated last weekend
(a little early)
so that both sets of grandparents could be present!

owl invitations
The wings open to display the details.
(from a free printable with six possible color variations!)

sealed with some owl stickers I already had

(There were only three brown M&M's in the bag I bought,
so we had to get creative.)

some simple favors:
owl stickers, a lollipop, and a couple of blowouts
(such an awful name, but they're fun, quiet, and inexpensive)

packaged in wildly colored owl treat bags
(Hey, they dressed up for the party!)

Fun was had by all,
and I only stressed a little bit.
