Owl Baby Shower Decorations and Centerpieces
For your Owl baby shower you want to create a woodsy feeling. Bring the outdoors in. Think about what it feels like in the forest and then recreate that same feeling in the venue of the baby shower.

Fake trees and plants are a great way to do this. You can also purchase fake moss (real moss is sooooo messy) and lay it on your table and around the house. Nests are a great decorating accent for this theme too. You can make them yourself or purchase them.
If you don’t have access to fake trees, you can do a one-dimensional tree on the wall with brown paper. Make owls with scrapbook paper and stick on the branches. You could do this behind the party table. Then purchase (or go in the woods and gather them yourself) tree branches. Place them in containers of your choice and place on the table. It will give your tree on the wall a two-dimensional look.
Punch a hole in the owls that you have made and string wire or ribbon through the hole. Hang them on the tree branches.
If you’re not very crafty or you don’t have time to create your own cute little owls, then purchase owl scrapbook paper and cut the owls out of that. So simple and easy!
Owl figurines and garden statues are a great way to bring in your theme. You can give the owls away at the end of the shower as gifts.
An owl bunting is a cute idea and can be made with scrapbook paper or fabric.
Tissue pom-pom balls are all the rage right now in the party world. You can make your own or purchase a kit. Hang these all around the party area or just above the table.
You can also hang a grapevine wreath around the chandelier over the party table and add little nests and owls to it.
Your colors for this shower can vary. It all depends on the owls that you choose to go with. Pick your owl baby shower supplies and then choose two or three colors from your supplies. Keep with that color scheme through out the shower decor.
If you use the owl graphics that I have provided, the color schemes would be…
Owl Baby Shower Games
Mommy the Multi-Tasker
You’ll need clothes line, laundry basket with owl themed baby clothes, phone, baby doll, and clothes pins.
Hang the clothes line up in the party area. You can hang baby clothes from it for your decorations and then it will be ready for the game. The player has 1 minute. She has to talk on the phone and hang up clothes while holding a baby on her hip. This is a great game. The single girls don’t have a clue. See who can hang up the most clothes in the time limit.
Place the Pacifier in the Baby Owl’s Mouth
For this baby shower game you’ll need a poster size baby owl’s face, blind folds, and pacifier stickers. Find a picture of a cute cartoon baby owl and draw it on a large poster board. You can use an overhead projector if you are not great at free hand drawing. Or ask a friend to do the drawing for you.
Blind fold the player and twirl her around. Give her the pacifier sticker and see how close she can get to the baby owl’s mouth. The closest pacifier to the baby owl’s mouth wins the prize!
Don’t Say “Owl”
String plastic pacifiers (can be found at a craft or hobby store) on a long piece of matching ribbon. As each guest arrives, hang a pacifier around her neck and instruct her that she can’t say the word “owl.” This will be difficult since there will be owls everywhere in the shower area! If she does, someone can “steal” her pacifier. Keep this game going the whole shower. The player with the most pacifiers at the end of the shower, wins.
Printable Baby Shower Games
Printable games make the shower planning a breeze. You can get games like Baby Shower Bingo, Mad Libs, Word Scramble, Name That Baby, and many more. Makes life just a little bit easier! Print instantly.
Owl Baby Shower Cupcakes or Cakes
If you decide on cupcakes, here is a really easy and cute idea…
Purchase or bake cupcakes and frost them with chocolate frosting. Pull Oreos apart and place one on each side of the cupcake with the white cream pointing up. Add brown M&M;’s or Reese’s Pieces for the eye pupils. For the beak you simply use a candy corn. I told you this was super simple! Of course you can always keep going with it and make it as detailed as you like. Fondant is a great way to cover cupcakes as well and can be used to make owl cupcakes.
Cupcake picks are a great way to bring in the owl theme as well. Cut out circles and add an owl sticker. Glue two circles back to back onto a toothpick. Place one pick in each cupcake.
Display your cupcakes in a cupcake stand or stacked cake plates.
If you are wanting a cake, there are several things you can do…
1. You can purchase the cake from your favorite bakery.
2. Bake a cake and decorate it yourself. For a very simple owl cake, bake a round cake and frost it either blue or pink. Add two rice cakes for the eyes. Add Reese’s Pieces for the pupils (or black fondant). Then use orange fondant (or orange candy) for the beak. This is very simple but actually looks enough like an owl.
