As you know, from past posts, I am one happy grandma! Grandbabies #8 & #9 are on their way this year. Lindsey and Alicia are both having girls! That will help even up our count right now of 5 boys and 2 girls.
Alicia is due in September. Her first little baby boy was delivered at 32 weeks and had to spend some time in the NICU. We are hoping that she makes it all of the way to September with this baby girl.
Since Alicia lives in California, and not far away from most of my side of the family, I am thinking a shower with family may be in order to welcome the new baby. Planning a shower from long distance can be tricky, but Beau-coup is a great place to start finding what I need to throw a great baby shower! All of my photos and colored links are clickable and will take to you to the site where you can order them or shop the site for any of your party needs.
Owl Party Supplies: When I saw the adorable owl themed items that Beau-coup has to offer, I knew it was the theme I had to use! To begin with, they have this adorable complete Party Kit that has almost everything you need to get the party started!
The Party Kit includes:
I think the menu/place cards, would be great to label the foods on the table, or to label other games or items throughout the party! If you want something other than an owl theme, this kit also comes in 14 other themes! They are all adorable!
Since the kit comes with Cupcake Wrappers/Toppers, I thought a small owl shaped cake, like the one I did in a past post, surrounded by cupcakes. Of course, I would change the colors to match the baby shower theme! Anyway, cake and food means that we need plates! I didn't find specific owl plates on Beau-coup, but I did find some adorable plates that I think would be terrific for our theme.
For cups, I will probably use a simple clear plastic with a pretty pink punch to add color to the day. I may use the stickers from the kit to decorate the cups or plates. I haven't decided.
Or, I could use these labels to fit the theme. I could purchase plain white or pink note cards and make my own invitations with these printable labels.
These labels are customize-able to different colors, shapes and sizes. They also come in many other themes. Also, these labels would have so many other applications for the shower, such as labeling favors or gifts. The kit up above also comes with stickers, so you could use those, these, or both! You can never have enough stickers!
Owl Themed Party Favors: A shower is always better when there are favors for the guests to take home. I love little boxes filled with candies or some other little gift. Look at these!
Owl Themed Game: A lot of people don't like shower games. I don't mind them because I have a game playing, competitive nature. So does my family, so since this is a family party, games are a must! I recently attended a baby shower that played a similar game to this and everyone love it because It was played as you watched the mama open her gifts, which made that part of the shower a lot more fun for everyone, instead of just the usual oohs and ahhs! Beau-coup has made it into an Owl Bingo Game.
Owl Themed Gifts: We have all seen cute gifts made out of diapers, so believe it or not, I have even seen owls made out of diapers, with an owl bib on the front as well. There are so many cute things, that as the host and the grandma I could give to Alicia that would also add to the Owl theme of the shower. There is one adorable thing on Beau-coup's site that I think would be a great gift and centerpiece! And since Alicia lives in the cooler climate of northern California, this would be perfect for her baby! Take a look!
With Beau-coup's help, I think that this Owl themed Party should come together nicely! Now all I have to do is let my sister know that we are having a party at her house! (I am sure she will be thrilled!) I will let you know how it goes! In the meantime, if you have any other great Owl party ideas, please let me know!
