    Default 1st Birthday - Owl Decor Help

    OK, so I've told DH that I really want to throw DD a first birthday party and invite BOTH sides of the family, all the way up to great-grandparents (DD has 3 great-grandmothers and a great-grandfather who are still living)

    Since she loves owls (really; this is very unusual for me to realize a 10-almost-11-month-old kid can have a definite "like") I want to do decorations in an owl theme, but I am getting really overwhelmed with trying to find things.

    My sister had a catalog that had some ADORABLE party decor, but I have no idea what catalog it was or where to find anything ... and, since she thought I wasn't interested in it, she tossed the catalog. (Oops!)

    I have until the 1st week of March to receive things, but would like to budget now because I'll also need to hire a venue (my house is simply not big enough to host everyone)

    So, where do you start? I used Google a few weeks ago and got completely bogged down in details.

    Please help!

    Have you tried Etsy? Search "Owl birthday":
    http://www.etsy.com/search_results.p..._type=handmade

    I searched "owl" on this site and got this:

    Thanks!

    I saw a few of the Etsy things and almost ordered them in December.

    Those are cute, but it wasn't Oriental Trading.

    They had a whole party kit with a "look whooo's turning 1" kind of theme - plates, banners, pinata, etc. - and I didn't check to see what company it was.

    DD's 3rd was "Bumbee is turning 3, everybody hug a tree." I made these cupcakes. Everyone LOVED them. They took forever, but were worth it!

    Now I'm annoyed b/c I went to their sister store (b-day express) and searched "owl" and that didn't turn up. They should really work together more on those sites.

    Super cute, btw!!
