Owl Theme

wpid-wp-1440773118518.jpeg         love baby showers, especially since they have come a

long way since the days of honeycomb paper

decorations and stork centerpieces. Today’s baby

showers are far more sophisticated and stylish, as they

are designed for grownups after all.

Setting a pretty tabletop is simple to do when you use your

invitation as inspiration. We have some great ideas to dress

your table, plus a great tip on how to cross-reference

decorative elements within the party space.                                                          wpid-wp-1440773038848.jpeg        We kept our dessert table sleek and modern and used the

vibrant colors in our invitation of orange, green, and white.

We placed fabric over the tablecloth and used the same

pattern in a frame over the dessert table. This is a good

trick to help unify two separate areas of a party.wpid-wp-1440772924648.jpeg                                                                                Our centerpiece for the dessert table was made by

clustering a few items together. A tall urn filled with flowers

was flanked by an owl figurine and a baby bottle which

holds one of our Pear Tree invitations.

When you use invitations as cute as these you’ll want to

show them off as part of the decor. We filled the baby bottle

with gumballs to weigh it down and add color. Then cut a

slit into the nipple and slid the invitation into it. This is a fun

way to add a “baby” touch to the modern owl theme baby

shower.                                                                        wpid-wp-1440772915530.jpeg         Plain white dishes are a great investment if you entertain

often. At about $1 each, these plates become a money

saver over time since you can use them over and over for

all occasions. Dress them up with colorful napkins wrapped

with ribbon and a place card made with card stock and a

matching sticker from Pear Tree Greeting’s Owl collection.                                         wpid-wp-1440772908324.jpeg             Baby shower games are as classic as the gifts themselves,

but can tend to be a bit juvenile or even embarrassing. We

prefer thoughtful activities that guests can do and then

leave for the mom-to-be. We designed a “Wishes for Baby”

card that everyone can fill out. Mom can read them aloud

during the modern baby shower or save them for later.
