Anthropologie Owl Baby Shower

Blown. Away. Yep… that pretty much sums up how I felt after receiving images of this gorgeous “Anthropologie Owl Baby Shower“. Wow!

From frozen lemonade served in mason jars to owl-shaped paper hand fans to stunning floral arrangements displayed in pretty bottles and vintage vases, this party is overflowing with charm and thoughtful, creative details…

Anthropologie Owl Baby Shower

The baby shower was held in honor of Carlie from Gabriel Ryan, and it probably won’t surprise you to learn that there were some very talented people involved in putting it together… including Carlie herself, Jesi from Jesi Haack Weddings, Carissa of JL Designs, and Melody of Sweet and Saucy Shop (wait ’til you see the gorgeous dessert buffet, below!).

There are so many inspiring ideas and beautiful photos (courtesy of Gabriel Ryan) to share that I decided to break this post up into 2 parts.

Here in Part 1, you’ll find lovely images of the flowers, decor, jewelry favors, and dessert buffet… starting with this incredible shot of the table centerpiece that I honestly want to blow-up poster size and put on my wall!

The colorful, translucent vases look so pretty all grouped together like this, and primarily all-white blooms add a soft, delicate vibe without competing with the colors in the vases. Yellow pom pom flowers add and a nice pop of color in just a few key places!

And now, the lovely dessert buffet by Sweet and Saucy

The presentation & set up of this buffet looks as delicious as the treats! Tissue and paper pom garlands make for such a pretty backdrop…

Treats included: mini candy bar cupcakes, red velvet and carrot cake flavored cake pops, mini fruit “pizzas”, iced sugar cookies decorated with super-cute purple and yellow owl motifs.

    Yes, I’ve seen this on multiple blogs now and it’s definitely worthy! I love the vintage, eclectic look because it feels so casual, yet you know every detail was thought out.
    And I love Owls. Here’s a link to an Owl Baby Announcement:

  18. shawnadammit October 23, 2009 at 12:28 pm

    I love the owl stirrers – where did they get those?

    Such a beautiful shower!

  19. [email protected] October 25, 2009 at 6:05 pm

    Well I must throw my hat in the circle as well and say, I really love the vintage vases, especially all clustered together for an eye catching display.

  20. Stacy - InkSpot Workshop October 26, 2009 at 5:14 am

    Thanks for doing this post! and most importantly for introducing me to the wonderful world of this couple. I have just been pondering over her breath taking pregnancy pictures and tearing up while reading posts from her smitten husband.

  21. Maryann October 26, 2009 at 9:41 am

    I’m throwing an owl theme baby shower in a few weeks and would love to make those owl stirrers. Do you know how she made them?

  22. jenn s. October 27, 2009 at 7:14 am

    Hi Maryann –
    Just heard that Jesi is planning to do a tutorial on how to make the owl stirrers soon. I’ll keep everyone posted just as soon as it’s up!

    Jenn :)

    I love the Owl BAby Shower Theme!
    It is sooo hip!

  30. Miranda November 29, 2010 at 11:09 am

    The dessert table just blew me away, the color scheme is what makes it really elegant and shabby, just the other day I found an owl sleeper baby gift and this would go perfect with this baby shower theme
