Nashville reader Jennifer shared with me her recent party and although it was billed as a Halloween party, the details would work for a super cute fall get together!
"This party was obvioulsy inspired by Owls and I had everyone come to the party as their favorite "Creature of the Night". Owls are definitely my favorite creature of the night! ;) I wanted to give my house a "foresty" feel so I brought in twigs and branches from outside and set them around the house. We also hung silver stars and yellow paper lanterns that gave off an eerie glow and served as my full moon. A fog machine added a misty appearance."
"My dessert table was the spotlight and all of the food was owl themed. I made the cake pops. They were devil's food cake on the inside and I made a batch in chocolate and a batch in orange (to match my invitation). They turned out great and were a HUGE hit at the party.
"I also made the owl cookies, owl brownies, and mice truffles. The owl brownies ("wise old brownies") were inspired by Dylan of Dylan's Candy Bar in New York. I added a piece of sheet moss in the middle to give it more of an "outdoorsy" feel and draped the table in brown burlap. Black fabric was the backdrop and a large yellow paper lantern hung for a full moon."
