Logan's Owl Party

The party was great! You really can't get a perfect capture of a nighttime party in Jan... unless you have a pretty darn amazing camera and a lot of patience (and time!). I tried to get as good a pictures as I could with my camera and very little time so most of them are fuzzy... but the party was so much better than the pictures. A little scattered because of some technical kitchen difficulties, but all in all I think it turned out so wonderful!

The kids LOVED the twilight treasure hunt! I had put candles at each station (Alex helped a LOT with this set up) so they could tell where they were going and the stations were spread all over my yard. 

Each little spot had a treat to pick up... all night time bird themed stuff too.  All picked up and put in these cute little bags I made from Trader Joe's bags and embellished with flowers and brads and owl name tags.

It was great and they had so much fun! I really enjoyed watching them run around the yard yelling at their parents, who were following with the candles, "Hey mama! Look at what I found over here!" and "There's another one!!" So cute!

Cricket Clickers, gummy worms and frogs, chocolate coated sunflower seeds, bubbles (ok, I stretched, but the kids loved them!), LED flashlights (for pure toddler pleasure), a set of three 'eggs' (speckled candy rocks), and a bracelet I made with bells on it that I thought they would like. 

These sweet treasures got tucked away as the favors.

After the treasure hunt we had a "make your own pizza" dinner.  Kids adore making their own pizzas!

Then of course was cake!  I put out a few owl friends out and about.  

 Gifts and playing came after that.

All in all, it was a huge success and not one meltdown, which is pretty darn amazing for a party of toddlers!  Fun party!
