{Owl themed surprise party!} :)

I have been working on this post for a while now and it's finally done!

About a week and a half ago, I got together with my brother's girlfriend--Cheyenne to work on a last minute surprise party for our friend Megan. Megan just recently left to Rhode Island State University on a full ride soccer scholarship (pretty cool right?!).

Cheyenne and I wanted to throw a party and invite Megan's family and closest friends to say
"ta-ta for now" and since Megan loves owls, we went with a super colorful owl themed party!

We were also on a super tight budget so a lot of things were DIY and purchased from the dollar store but still came out pretty cute!

Here are some photos of the decor and the super exciting surprise party.



See this cupcake tower? It was totally DIY from the dollar store!
See my post right here about how to make your own! :)
Read about these fun and colorful cupcakes in my last post

These little owl pictures that we decorated in the window were actually folders (3 ring binders) that we found at the 99 cent store and we cut them up to use as decor...hey, it worked! lol

These flowers were picked from my grandmothers garden and I arranged them in this blue vase--also bought from the dollar store. :)

Cheyenne painted this tree on this large piece of neon paper and I cut out the owl and letters to glue onto the enormous goodbye card.

Megan had tears in her eyes when she read all of the wonderful wishes to her. :)


Candy, polka dots, pink and green crystal confetti and paper straws! 
I told you this party was super colorful & crazy! 

Balloons outside in the pool. It turned into a pool party :)

Oh, and this little gecko named Sparticus!

The initial surprise...
I got it on video but my computer is being weird so I can't post it right now.
Ta-Ta for now Megan!
We love you! :)
