Food Ideas for an Owl Party
* Affiliate links added for your convenience.
For my daughter’s 5th birthday, I came up with all of these food ideas for an owl party. It has been a while since the party, but I didn’t want to inundate my readers with only posts about an owl party, so I have spread it out. Today’s post summarizes all of the food ideas we did for the party. I have some new ideas you haven’t seen yet. Most of the post, however, links to previous tutorials so you will have all the tools to equip you to re-create these items for your own owl party. I wanted to have all of the ideas in once place for ease of use for my readers. I hope you find it helpful and inspiring!
Owl Cake Tutorial – I love making cakes. It’s a hobby of mine. This cake wasn’t too complicated because it was made using a cookie cutter. I have lots of cake tutorials including Cake Making 101 and Cake Making 201, which should help you with some of the basically. You can click over to my owl cake tutorial to discover how to make this specific cake.
Owl Sandwich Platter with Meats and Cheeses – I wanted to come up with a healthier option for lunch at the food table, and this owl sandwich platter was the result. I bought up a bunch of meats and cheeses from Costco. I then used an oval cookie cutter to cut out the cheeses. I layered the meets and cheeses as shown above and sliced up my bread. I used carrots for the feet and beak, cucumbers for the eyes and raisins for the eyeballs.
Chocolate Owl Suckers – Making suckers out of Candy Melts or Candy Wafers has been a hobby since I was a child. Candy melts (chocolate) are easy to use, and I even have a Candy Melts tutorial post to help you learn some fun decorating tips. For the suckers, all you need to do is follow the directions on the back of the package for melting options. The microwave option is the easiest and works great. Then, you spoon the chocolate into your owl sucker molds. I look on the bottom to scan for bubbles. You can flick the bottom of the plastic at the point of the bubble to try and remove it or use your spoon to press the chocolate down more. I then add a sucker stick. Finally, I knife off the extra chocolate to smooth the top. Just stick these in the refrigerator for a short time. It’s a really easy process. Don’t be intimidated. I used Candy “Wafers” brand for this project, but I am used to using the Candy Melts brand too. I purchased the Candy Wafers in pink, light green and lavender to match my decor.
Owl Pretzels – I used the Candy Melts to create these cute pretzels. Please visit my owl pretzel tutorial for complete instructions.
Owl Strawberries – I loved making these owl strawberries stuffed with Philadelphia cream cheese mixed with brown sugar. Click on over to the owl strawberry recipe to find out how to make the nests and the filling.
Fruit Snack Owl Packs – My husband created a great printable to cover up the fruit snacks. This was another great addition to our food table. Click on over to get the free printable.
Owl Cupcake Tutorial – Who says you can’t turn a cupcake upside-down? This is kind of a bonus post. I didn’t actually make these for the party. You can see the tutorial and find out how and why I made them by clicking through.
I hope you have received loads of ideas for your own owl party. My daughter had a lot of fun at her birthday party, and food is one of the ways to create the entire vibe of the party.
