These little guys were my constant companions the last week leading up to the party. We spent several late nights together getting them ready to meet their new owners. They each have unique personalities, and came with a little poem describing him or her, as well as an adoption certificate for each little girl to fill out with her new owl friend's name. I grew rather attached to my little owl creations, but was happy to see them go home to their new families. I had hidden glow-in-the-dark stars with numbers on them around the house. Everyone hunted for the stars in the dark and was matched to the owl with the corresponding number that they found. The owl pillows were a big hit with the girls and they all put serious thought into what they would name them.
Sweet Tooth Owl
This one came with a joke: Knock, knock. Who's there? Owls. Owls who? That's right, owls hoo!! Tatum thought this was hysterical.
Baby Owl (my first attempt that I decided was too small, but we kept it anyway as an extra).Check out the amazing high-rise fort Tye constructed! It had a separate wing and sparkling pink lights. We laid down lots of sleeping bags and blankets, and threw tons of pillows in for a fun lounging area.
here. They arrived in the mail packaged so securely that not a single speck of sugar was displaced. I'll definitely use her again in the future.
I didn't include any photos of the attendees in order to protect their privacy, but it was cuh-RAZY loud! 5- and 6-year-old girls have mastered that ear-piercing scream that makes you stop whatever you're doing and cringe. It was sheer pandemonium for 2 1/2 hours but lots of fun was had. After the party ended, we had to tear down everything and clean from top to bottom as fast as possible to prepare for a friend coming in from out of town to go to the World Series baseball game with Tye the next day. Whew! It was tiring, and we ALL took naps the following day, but I loved every minute of it. Happy 6th Birthday, sweet girl!
