What a "HoOt" !!

  Well look "Whoo" turned 13 last week. 
{I can't believe I am old enough to have an official 
teenager in the house}
Happy Birthday Miss Mace! 

I think she might just love owls as much as I do 
{she has numerous rings & necklaces of these feathered friends}  
She has wanted to have an owl themed party for awhile now & since her birthday is in the middle of Summertime we decided to celebrate with a Night-Owl party with an outdoor backyard movie. 

Since Miss Mace loves to bake so she made a whole flock of Owl cupcakes for everyone to enjoy. 
{Didn't they turn out cute?} 

 The eyes for these feathered friends are blond Oreos & Nutter Butters with Reese's pieces as the colored part of the eye, their noses were just a Reese's pieces turned on it's side- super easy!!
Mace just loved how they all turned out! 

One of the party activities was everyone making & painting their own Owl Rock Pet to take home with them.  
{see is actually wearing an owl ring}

 Each one of the girls rocks- they turned out so cute. 
{very colorful- I have to say}
The stage is set for the outdoor movie.  These vintage theatre seats came out of my hometown's movie theatre. 
{Lewiston - home of the $1 movie}
The city renovated the theatre a few years ago & my Mom snagged some for us to have. I just love having them to use- they are perfect 
{a bit heavy & bulky to move around but- priceless!}  

 The dessert table all dressed up & ready to have everyone dig in. I'm totally loving & embracing the "WoodSy" theme in just about everything I've done lately. It's so easy & fun to tie into anything you do.  I even wood burned "Whoo.. loves you?" into a piece of wood for Mace to have as a keepsake from the party.
{I signed it & wood burned the date on the back}

 I used a 8 ft. wooden plank {with the bark still on of coarse} as the table runner- super easy & clever! 
{If I say so myself ;) } 
I'm also excited to announce that I will be on Studio 5 next month talking about {& sharing} ideas on how to incorporate wood into your entertaining/decorating.  Yippee!!
{I mean just look at that cute cake stand- love it!} 
 It couldn't be a Movie Night without Popcorn - & LoTS of it! 
Miss Mace loves Popcorn {she gets it from her Dad} & wanted a variety of it for her friends to choose from. We had Carmel, Salty & Buttery {which Mace loves to sprinkle Parmesan cheese on} White Chocolate  & Marshmallow Popcorn to dig into & of coarse stripy straws to stick into their Root Beer bottles.
 Mace & her cute friends that came to the party 
 Happy Birthday to You- make a wish! 
 Let the movie begin- the weather was so nice, not a cloud in the sky & the perfect Summer evening to have an outdoor party. She even let her sisters & their buddy "crash" the party & watch the movie with them. 

 Then to end the night- Glow-in - the- Dark Chalk.  
{I told about this fabulous stuff in an earlier post} 
The girls loved it & had such a great time writing their names, tracing each other on the driveway & coloring on the trampoline {it's washable} at 11:30 p.m. & seeing it glow in the darkness. 
I'm telling you this stuff is Awesome if you are having an outdoor party, neighborhood get together or event-- you need to get some!! 

I thought Audrey's name turned out so cute 
{love that she writes her A as a Star!} 
You can get the idea of how much this chalk glows in the dark- it's so great! 

What a great day celebrating Miss Mace's birthday this year- it started driving home at Midnight from Harry Potter 7 & then ended 24 hours later with her playing outside jumping on the trampoline, drawing with glow- in the dark chalk & being giggly with friends.

You are such a great Mom to your girls!!

When I saw the owls and the nutter butters guess what I thought? I still remember several years ago you dropped off some very cute santa's made out of those cookies. I loved them!
