Owls and Birds Party

A little Flashback post to a Launch Party that I never posted...(sorry about the photography)
This little space I created, certainly inspired by so many other creative blogs, to share my ideas and to inspire others with what I plan and style for special occasions. In Flight became my motivation to start my own business and In Flight Celebrations was registered locally in Knoxville in April 2011. Launching officially with an Owls and Birds inspired Launch Party in November 2011. Well I got busy. I lost and recaptured my images of that party and then got busy again but finally I want to share it with you of that fun Launch Party... so here it goes!
I celebrated with local vendors and family and friends and decorated  the room in owls and birds as is our theme at In Flight.  Refreshments were served and bags were offered for guests to place their goodies on.

The entrance outside the room had a rustic ambience for sign up. Wild birds food was presented in little bags for guests to take with them to feed the birds at home.
A second entrance table was set up and decorated with painted glass hurricane vases holding
candles in our party colors; pink, yellow and coral. Complimented with a burlap bunting that coordinates graciously with my logo. Bags were offered for guests to place their goodies on.

Four different tables each hosted a unique theme.
An Owl Inspired Table in yellow mustard color with rustic centerpieces and lots
of pumpkins and owls.
A Lovely Bird Inspired Table with white and pink birds as centerpieces and a romantic feel to the table with light and pink colors.
A Wood and Natural Inspired Table with wooden vases and twine wrap candles was
also inspired by birds and it incorporated kraft, twine and lace as well on the favors.

The fourth table, a Yellow and Tan Inspired Table with orange roses and golden votives.  In this last table the flower vases used as centerpieces were simple paper bags decorated with lace.

Different tables were set out for desserts.
 A candy table in colors pink, yellow and coral. The table was simply decorated with a handmade garland made of painted doilies.
 A Cake and Cupcake Table inspired in owls and birds while the coordinating colors remain the same as the candy, yellow and coral.  Plain white picture frames were set up to allow the desserts to represent the table's colors and feel.


A long desserts table included a variety of decorated cookies in different shapes
and colors polka dots cookies, bird cages and our logo were offered. Vanilla Cake in a Jar and Chocolate Cupcakes in a jar were wrapped on beautiful fabric and multicolor yarn. A delicious apple crumb pie and of course, milk!
The decoration is set up not only by the beauty of the desserts but also owls vases and candles and a beautiful birds plate. The flowers here were presented on simple cans.

I wanted to share this with you still because the ideas are still very much amazing for any owl and bird themed parties. The one thing I LOVED the most on this event was the way each table had it's own theme within the greater scheme.  Cakes in a jar never get old, cute cupcakes are always in and owls on a cake will always be one of my favorites.  Lights and feathers are a great addition to any party and celebration like this.
