Gone are the days when birthday celebrations were monotonous and predictable. The buzzword for today is ‘creativity’, flanked by ‘elegance’! The latest fad for festivities and parties is to decide on certain themes and follow them to the ‘T’ – literally for every element of the party. An owl-themed birthday party, for instance, would essentially have owl-shaped cakes, owl-themed decor and invitations, and so on.
Though owl themes are pretty common for Halloween parties, an owl is a vital character in fantasy novel series like Harry Potter as well, so creating an environment that exudes magic would be perfect. Illuminate the hall in such a way that it is bright enough, yet carries a mysterious and haunted look.

Use owl-themed party décor, and have owls of different sizes on branches, with the words on banners. The card gives a vibrant yet subtle feel about the forthcoming party.
