Look Whoooo's Baptised

Owl themes are pretty popular these days, especially this time a year for graduations.   This theme can be incorporated in just about any event. It's great for birthday parties, baby showers, bridal showers, even a baptism. Yes, I incorporated owls into a recent baby boy's baptism. I kept it modern and pretty simple with a color palette of  blue, green, yellow & white.  Here's a look.

We incorporated the owl theme thoughout stationery, even on the menus

Blue Rosary beads were placed on the napkins of each setting
I kept the centerpieces simple by adding ribbon around the base of the vases and making tissue paper flowers
I'm a big fan of edible Favors
And  to end the event on a sweet note...of course a small desert buffet! Treats included french macarons old fashion donuts, white chocolate dipped marshmallows, white chocolate covered pretzels, vanilla wafer sticks, cookies, and cake.

 I would definitely love to incorporate owls for another event!  And I will surely contact Christine of Olive Branch Papery  for stationery again.  She did an amazing job on the JC's Baptism!  The personalized owl themed stationery pulled the event together nicely.
So....Whooo' has hosted an owl event lately?

Sorry I'm a little late seeing this but it looks great! I think the color combination looks good together too.

How did you fold the tissue paper into flowers?

Thanks for sharing!

I would never think these shades of blue, green and yellow could look so good together! Great assembly to make a real festive event!
