Do you have a little one that loves owls? Perhaps you’re looking for a sweet birthday theme for a 1 year old. The owl party theme is really popular right now and it’s great for either gender. Here I’ll provide ideas for invitations, decorations, activities, food and treat bags. All of the party printables featured here are from Just a Little Sparkle.
Owl Birthday Party – Invitations:
What sound does an owl make? Hoo! You can use this in so many silly ways to create a fun birthday invitation. Some fun wording ideas include:
- Guess Whooo is Turning 2?
- We promise you’ll have a hoot at the party!
- Whoo is the cutest birthday boy around?
- Guess whooo I want to come to my party? You!
Here are some other cute ideas: 1. Birthday party invitation, Who’s Birthday: Sheer Lilac
2. Birthday party invitation, Owl Fun
3. Birthday party invitation, Smart Owl
Owl Birthday Party – Decorations:
To create more of an outdoor woodland look, I added some fake leaves and brown ribbon to this banner by Just a Little Sparkle. You could also include fake leaves and branches around the party table. Your local dollar store is a great place to go to find inexpensive decorations like this.
Another cute idea is to sprinkle feathers around the party table and add in some small wire birdcage decor pieces. Stuffed owls are a fun decor idea for the younger crowd.1. Natural Feathers
2. Birdcage Tea Light Holder
3. Forest Plush Owl
Owl Birthday Party – Activity Ideas:
Sticking with the “Whooo” theme of the party, a fun board game for the kids to play is Guess Who. You could also create your own version of the game by describing different kid-friendly celebrities and having the children guess who you are describing.
For a fun craft idea, guests could create small bird houses for friends of the Owl.
Owl Birthday Party – Food:
Thinking of food for an owl themed party can be difficult. If you want to stick with the woodland theme, you could have various snacks that resemble branches and twigs like pretzel sticks, bread sticks, spring rolls and other thin rolled appetizers.
Your food selection doesn’t have to fit into a specific theme. It’s easy to tie any food into the theme simply with the right choice of table settings. For napkin rings, you can use plastic vines for a cute added touch. Here are some other cute owl designs (these designs are also available in pink): 1. Owl Hot/Cold Cups – 8 Qty/Pack
2. Owl Birthday Party Pack
3. Owl Dinner Plates
Owl Birthday Party – Dessert:
Cupcake toppers are an easy way to bring the cupcakes into your party theme. If you love baking and decorating cakes, there are also owl cake pans that will help you create the perfect owl for your party. Some other fun ideas for dessert include chocolates in owl shapes and owl cookies.
Owl Birthday Party – Treat Bags:
Favor ideas for an owl birthday party include stamps, stickers, change purse, candies and anything else with a cute owl print. A fun treat idea are twigs and leaves (pretzel sticks and spearmint leaves) with a fun “I Hope You Had a HOOT At My Party” favor tag.
Have you ever seen a real owl?
