Even though the owl shower is on hold for now, I figured I’d tell you how we’re going to do it. And hopefully Connor likes owls, ‘cuz the guest of honor is now attending his own shower, which is actually kind of awesome.
Mint and Cucumber Tea Sandwiches
I recommend using Persian cucumbers because I think they’re more flavorful than English cucumbers. I also think the sandwiches are better open faced because the bread can be too overpowering otherwise. The recipe is here.
Albacore and Artichoke Sandwiches
Canned albacore in oil is a great substitute for Italian tuna in this recipe. Though the recipe calls for lemon juice and lemon zest, it’s also nice with lime. You can check out the recipe here.
Other sandwiches to complete the finger sandwich menu might be:
Roast Beef Sandwich with Horseradish Mayonnaise
Turkey Sandwich with Cranberry Relish and Blue Cheese Butter
I’d also throw in some prosciutto, mozzarella, and melon skewers as well as a salad.
Chocolate Ganache-Filled Chocolate Cupcakes with Seven Minute Meringue Frosting
I have made these many times, and Connor’s mom, Jody, digs them. They are amazing. The recipe is here.
Owl Sachets. (Tutorial here.)
You can get really elaborate with the decorations and go with a woodland-inspired rustic look for the cupcake stands as well as the flowers or you can keep it simple. If you’re looking for more owl baby shower ideas, you can check out this board I created specifically for Jody’s shower.
And this board includes a ton of owl ideas for a shower, a birthday, or a sorority party. (Fun fact: both Chi Omega and Kappa Kappa Gamma have an owl mascot.)
