Anj Snow of the Snowy Bliss blog recently designed an out-of-this-world birthday for her daughter. The theme of the bash was “Night Owl Pajama Party” and the amount of creativity and detail in this party is outstanding.
Check out this fabulous, functional table setting, the remarkable cake and decor, and the warm and fuzzy guest favours that Anj made all by herself. She even created “adoption” cards for each of the pet owls she made for the guests – adorable!
What Anj says about her party planning process:
I start with an idea about three or four months ahead. I don’t make any specific plans at first; I just stick the theme in my brain and let it marinate for awhile. Eventually, I work through the problems and new ideas start to come. I keep a folder in my car, in case inspiration suddenly strikes and I can jot it down. When there are about two months to go before the party, I write down a party plan. I give myself deadlines, etc. I started the owls for this pajama party about three weeks before the celebration. A big portion of the time was spent just coming up with the 13 different owls, their designs and what to write on the adoption cards. I was even picky about the felt color combinations. But that is the fun part of the creative process for me.
Way to go, Anj! Your daughter and her friends are very lucky girls.
