The Party Part 2

10.25.2011

My daughter did a wonderful job of putting together the party with wonderful decorations and food. The party theme was owls. Here are some of the pictures of the decorations and food. If you missed part one you can see it here.


The owl cake was the cutest thing ever. It was made by Leila's other grandmother, great aunt and great grandmother. It was delicious!

These were the cutest decorated cans filled with candy corn and cake pops. My daughter ordered the decorations downloads from an etsy shop and then put these together.


These were the favors and I forgot to grab one before I left.

Cute owl cupcakes on a two tiered stand.

This was all set up in the dining room.

The food was set up in the breakfast room. My daughter found the cute bowls and trays at Hobby Lobby at half off.

chicken salad on croissants


old fashioned coke bottles and labeled water bottles

Take a bottle of coke, grab the bottle opener and pop the top off and stick a cute paper straw in.



There was also a crock pot full of spicy meatballs and another crock pot full of crack dip. That is the best stuff on earth served with triscuits.

This is the smash cake before Leila got a hold of it.

The mantel was decorated with more cute etsy downloads that Brooke put together.

The Leila letters are from Hobby Lobby.

Here are just some extra shots.




My favorite shot edited in Picasa.

Thanks so much for all your very kind comments about Leila's party and the birthday wishes.

Enjoy the rest of your week!
