Don’t you just love those first signs of Fall?! The rich autumn colors, the chunky sweaters, and a whole new season worth of parties to plan!
Let’s kick this season off with an owl-themed birthday party, perfect for a little boy or girl. Invite your guests with this cheerful invitation from Tiny Prints, and decorate your party space with bright, autumn colors.
When you are entertaining a bunch of children for a couple hours, activities and crafts are an absolute must! Since it is back-to-school time, this is a fun craft that the kids will enjoy using at school: Set up a craft table with pre-cut felt shapes, pencils, glue and tiny buttons (for the owl’s eyes). Have each child glue together 3 different pencil toppers – an owl, a mushroom and an acorn – and tie them together with a cute ribbon for them to take home. (You could also attach these felt shapes onto toothpicks and use them as cupcake toppers) For a more detailed tutorial, check out Whimsy-Girl.
The highlight of the party will definitely be these charming owl cupcakes! Start with a chocolate iced cupcake, add a couple of oreo halves cream side up, two junior mints for eyes, and a Runts banana candy for the nose. So cute, and perfect for our Fall theme!
When the party comes to an end, send the kids home with their “bouquet” of pencils and a goodie bag! Dress up cellophane bags full of candy with scrapbook paper to look like owls. For a more details idea, check out 2stampis2be.com.
