Butterfly Baby Shower Theme Ideas

Sweet Jelly Parties

When a friend is pregnant, and is expecting a baby girl, it can be hard to know what theme to make for the baby shower other than just pink or purple. However, if the mom-to-be has decided to decorate the nursery with something like butterflies, than the hostess can use that same decorating style for the baby shower as well.


A butterfly themed baby shower for girls can be a lot of fun especially with things like using stamps to create the invitations, using butterfly banners to decorate the room, and having nice healthy salads and appetizers for the baby shower food.  Butterflies are special and beautiful, and using them for the baby shower theme will mean an unforgettable party that the mother-to-be will really appreciate. It is also the best choice for springtime or summertime showers.

The search for butterfly invitations will not be a hard one because butterflies are very popular. Butterfly invitations can come in all colors, and all the hostess has to do is try to find a color scheme that will match the decorations that will be used in the party hall. Another idea that the hostess can use for finding the perfect butterfly invitations is to go to a hobby store and look for stamps or a butterfly puncher. All the hostess will have to do here is buy nice colored paper, use the stamps, and create a nice handmade invitations to the butterfly themed baby shower.

Another simple yet nice way to decorate the party hall or the room is to use balloons. It used to be that only party stores carried Mylar balloons, but now they are everywhere including grocery stores and dollar stores. The best place to get the butterfly balloons would be a dollar store because they would only be one dollar a piece, the hostess can get enough to fill up the party room and it will not cost her a fortune. Also, to match the butterfly balloons, the most predominant color in the balloons can be used, and table cloths, cups, and napkins can be bought in a matching color.
