As soon as Rachel of Fondant Flinger knew she wanted to do an owl themed birthday party for her son Levi, her Pinterest feed was filled with all things owl. In the end, she created a winter dream filled with sweet owls and even sweeter treats. Her soft blue, grey and white color scheme is accented with small touches of woodsy brown, perfect for an owl chanting hoo hoo from a snow-filled forest.
Living in Kodiak, Alaska, Rachel wanted to embrace the wintry home that she has come to love during her time here. “Our little guy, Levi, used to chant, “hoo, hoo” 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.”
From cupcake toppers to the dessert table banner, snowy owl details were everywhere in this winter wonderland. They all coordinated perfectly with the delightful invitation and party printables created by Gwynn Wasson!
I love seeing a theme brought to life with such thoughtfulness and attention to detail. With Rachel, she sees not only the big picture but even the smallest decoration gets considered. It’s hard not to love the entire dessert table 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.
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!
Not only did she do the adorable dessert table, she also set up a fantastic little hot cocoa table! What a great idea. Did you see the crazy-cute owl pinata?!? He’s lurking in the background behind the milk bottles on, but he is too adorable to miss!!
Oh. My. Cuteness! Levi’s owl coordinated birthday hat and onesie designed by J. Marie Designs are simply precious! We can only imagine how handsome he must have looked as he enjoyed his first birthday cake! Now even though the goodies are all gone, he’ll have this little memento to remember it by.
A huge thank you to Rachel for sharing this dreamy Snow Owl 1st Birthday with us! Love the cake, love the theme, love all of the amazing details! Happy Birthday to your little owl!
