Snow Owl 1st Birthday

Whoo…  Whoo…  Look whooo’s turning one?!?  Oh my goodness, today’s party is soooo incredibly adorable!  It’s a snowy, winter dream filled with sweet owls and sweet treats!  Created by Rachel Skvaril of Fondant Flinger for her son’s 1st birthday, this celebration is just dreamy!  A soft blue, grey and white color scheme is accented with small touches of woodsy brown.  Perfect for a winter birthday and a birthday boy who chants “whoo, whoo”, this Snow Owl First Birthday is a hootin’ good time!

Rachel shared a few thoughts about her inspiration for this party:

“We currently live in Kodiak, Alaska so I wanted to embrace the wintry home that we have come to love during our time here. Our little guy, Levi, used to chant, “whoo, whoo” when he was just a few months old so I knew we were going to go incorporate an owl theme. I decided to combine both the snow and the owl into the snowy owl theme.”

Oh. My. Cuteness!  Levi’s birthday hat and onesie are simply precious!  I can only imagine how handsome he must have looked as he enjoyed his first birthday cake!

Now, let’s get a better look at this cake!  Rachel did an incredible job of tying this snowy owl theme together, especially on the cake.  How adorable are the snow covered branches, wrapping around the side of the cake?  They’re the perfect place for a snow owl to perch!  Especially this charming fondant snow owl, created by Brittany at Edible Details!

I love the entire display!  From the wooden cake stand to the white vases filled with tall, willowy branches…. a gorgeous cake surrounded by precious snow owls and sparkling, snow covered trees.   The fun, wintry vibe continues on with burlap goodie bags and snowflake cupcake toppers.

Did you see the crazy-cute owl pinata?!?  I almost missed him lurking in the background behind the milk bottles… but he is too adorable to miss!!  So many snowy owl details, all coordinating with the delightful invitation and party printables created by Gwynn Wasson Designs!
