Cordelia had such a fun time anticipating her owl birthday party the last few weeks! She talked about it every day.
Me: CC, what kind of party are you going to have?
Cordelia: I havin’ a owl partay! A owl partay!
Vera: Owls are my favorite too!
We had the party on Saturday evening, and we were so glad that both sets of grandparents, two uncles, one aunt, and one cousin all came to help us celebrate!
I hardly took any pictures during the party (too busy playing hostess and nursing Jude!), but here are some I managed to get before things got too crazy (aka when the kids were all napping)!
Everyone got to put on owl temporary tattoos (in the milk glass bowl, above).
The kids had a special table with owl plates.

Mmmm… chocolate cake!
Napkins and plates from Five Below
My mom made these cute owl bags
And also these bags, filled with caramel popcorn
I had a lot of fun making an owl piñata! It was almost too cute to beat with a stick.
Pictures from CC’s second year

Festive chalkboard art
Another banner, and some of the pictures I took of Cordelia
Vera was quite excited about the party too!
My grandmother gave them these cute owl shirts and my mom made ruffled pants to match. Adorable!
They really do love each other.
Daddy’s girls, for sure!
Jude had an owl shirt too!
Me and my big girl
The party menu: feta dip, pita chips, spinach artichoke dip, crackers, veggies, Caesar salad, rolls, cornbread, white chicken chili, minestrone soup, and chocolate cake!
Angela’s amazing feta dip
Mom C.’s amazing Caesar salad
Of course the birthday girl loved her chocolate cake! I’ve made this cake/frosting recipe twice now and I think it’s a family favorite. I’ll have to blog the recipe sometime!
We are so thankful for all of the family members who came to help us celebrate our sweet CC’s second birthday party! It was such a fun party!
