Summary of the Night Owl Party

This is a summary of Boo's 8th birthday party.  It was a sleepover spa night owl themed party.
The invitations were owl cards made on the cricut and were delivered with a sleep mask:

The goodies:
Owl topped treat bags filled with spa items: bracelets, rings, nail polish, lotion, an eraser shaped as a spa item (you know the fun ones that come apart), and homemade lip gloss.
Owl pillow boxes filled with M&M's (also doubled as the prizes for Bingo).
Sundaes, but not an ordinary sundae, one made for the bath.
Owl S'mores - graham crackers, marshmallows, yellow candy melts, chocolate chips, and a candy corn.

Bottles to hold their drinks.  They had owls on the front, holes drilled in the lids for straws, and their first initial on the back.

The owl cake:

and blowing out the candles (can you tell the flames are colored?)


And the sad part: I didn't take pictures of the spa part.  I was busy finishing the cake & s'mores.  I put my oldest & her friends in charge of the pedicures and manicures.  We had a foot bath using the ingredients from the Sundaes pictured above.  The girls picked out their nail polish and they were all decorated up.  We had started the party with a pizza dinner, had manicures/pedicures, played bingo, had cake and ice cream, unwrapped presents, and then watched a movie.  That filled up the night from 6:00 pm until 10:23 pm (but who was counting?).
