As the "One-Year" mark approaches...

Makayla will be turning a year old at the end of next month.  I keep asking myself how on earth is this possible..but my baby girl is becoming more like a 'little girl' anymore..I love it though!!  With that said..I've known for a while what our birthday party theme was going to be..but to my surprise the only place I've been finding what I need is in catalogs!!!!  I was hoping to purchase the paper plates, a party store but so far I've had no luck.

The ask?  Owls..of course..hoot owls!!

We're a little owl obsessed here in case you haven't noticed.  I made her an owl blanket last fall/winter.  She has an owl diaper bag I ordered from etsy.  I've been wanting to find an owl wall decal to sit in her tree on her bedroom wall.  Owls seem to be everywhere anymore.

So why can't I find owl party plates at a store..ANY store??

Anyways..while my hunt for owl inspired party decor continues (any advice you could give would be appreciated!)..I am planning on making a cute non-owl party wreath (YES..still on wreaths here!) for her birthday (and all our birthdays as well!).  How cute is

I've already bought the I just need to get to work!  



  1. I can't believe she's almost a year old!!! And that's crazy they don't have owl decorations anywhere... you used to be able to find them all over the place!

  2. I ask myself the same question! I found owl stuff on amazon and etsy but not in stores.

    We have a theme too but the plates and cups are just plain. We didnt spend the money on those and decided that we would spend the money on decorations instead-just a thought.

    Hope you find what you are looking for!

  3. I can't wait to see what you do for her party, Mekanie!

  4. Eh, sorry for the typo, commenting from my phone. :-)
