Owls & Butterflies: Sage's 10th Birthday Party



Yesterday, we had Sage's birthday party and 
went with a combination of owls & butterflies for the theme.

The party started with a photo shoot outside on our front steps...





Then, we went inside and the girls played while I printed out the photos.
Once copies were printed out for each girl, they made mini-books with them.



One of the girls had to leave early, unfortunately.
We did a second craft after that -- they decorated EOS lip balms with
some patterned paper I die cut using PTI's Critter Cuties: Owl die.


Aren't they cute! Thanks to Betsy Veldman for the idea!

I hung butterflies from the chandelier and arranged the snack on the piano...


We made cupcake toppers using the Life is Beautiful dies.
Sage & I found the cupcake holder at a garage sale and Austin spray
painted it gold for me.


I also made some owl cookies 
(sorry for the poor photo!)


I think, all in all, that it was a success!


Thanks for looking!
