Marissa's Baby Shower

A friend of mine, Marissa is having a baby in a few weeks, and I said months ago that I would throw her a shower. This shower turned out super cute, and was done with very little stress, it was an event where everyone who helped worked in an area of strength. We had a fabulous event planner do the decorations, and talented graphic designer do invitations, favors and print the games, and I worked on some of the food, and had a few sisters help at relatively little notice to make sure there was enough.The room looked super cute. It was owl themed and there were the cutest little felt owls hanging off of branches for the center pieces

It was a really neat effect.The favors were reeses pieces in these adorable little tins done up the the super cute owl again.
For food we had owl cupcakes
and nests of eggs
and then just a spread of yummy appetizers. We had a fruit and veggie platter, spinach dip, stuffed mushroom caps, cinnamon pull aparts, and tortilla pin wheels. We wrapped the water bottles with coordinating paper and added ribbon which totally looked cute and then had punch.In the end I think that Marrissa did feel loved and spoiled as she was showered with gifts for baby Toby which was our goal. I love that I have friends who will help me pull something like this off, and I love that we can all enjoy ourselves doing it.

I've never seen an owl theme before. So cute. I loved the "Thank Whooo" tins!
