Baby Shower- Owls & Pinwheels Printables/Cost

I'm back with a cost breakdown of the decorations for the owl & pinwheels shower as well as a few free printables that you are more than welcome to use. 
*If you are interested in personalizing any of the printables let me know and I can do that for you. 

Free Printables:
Owl Circles- This is what I used to make the toothpick toppers for the quiches. Click here for example.
Love Note- I printed these out on sticker paper and attached them to cardstock
Food Cards- These are what I used in front of the different types of food. To get them to stand up I used clothespins as a base. Click here for example
Baby Looks Like- I had the mommy-to-be bring a baby picture of herself and her hubs and people voted who they thought the baby would look like. Click here for example. 
Predictions- This was in place of a game. I gave each guest one of these to fill out while the gifts were being open. 
Owl on Branches- Feel free to use this to enhance your own printables!
