Butterfly Baby Shower Invitations
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 you have 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 you could use for finding the perfect butterfly invitations is to go to a hobby store and look for stamps or a butterfly puncher. All you will have to do here is buy nice colored paper, use the stamps, and create nice handmade invitations to the butterfly-themed baby shower.
Butterfly Baby Shower Decorations
For a lovely butterfly theme, you can have a sweet pink or pretty purple look. You could buy some lovely nylon or silk butterflies that you can hang on the ceiling or wall. Also, you can make butterflies with icing and place it on your cupcakes.
Add some beautiful flowers on the table, spread butterfly confetti using the same butterfly puncher as the invitations. Or for a larger butterflies, you can print a larger butterfly image from google and cut it out. You should use a thick cardstock paper to do this, but not too thick that it’d jam your printer! Jays.designs13 uses baby’s breath flower which looks amazing.
You can use these butterflies to make a little bunting as cupcake and the cake topper. They can also be folded slightly at the wings so as to look more real and attractive as they won’t be flat on the surface.
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, you 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.
