Butterfly Theme

A lovely theme for a sweet girl is a Butterfly theme – whether you are planning an outdoor garden party, a 1st birthday or simply a celebration your little one who loves butterflies – there are plenty of ways to style this party!

Suspending butterflies around the main table or party area as well as incorporating small butterfly embellishments throughout your party decor will help create a lovely whimsical butterfly effect for this theme.

As you will see from the invitations there are a range of colour palettes you can go for but I’ve chosen a lavender and lime green colour palette for some of the items below as it’s a great fresh colour combination for spring and I have done a lot of pink colour themes recently, so it’s an opportunity to show a few other coloured items! I was also inspired by the “Mint Meets Lilac” inspiration board in the recent My Little Jedi magazine (page 22)

Being such a popular theme there is a huge range of Butterfly products online (and in the shops). So I have chosen just a cross section. Please contact me if you want a custom inspiration pack put together based on your specific colour palette and Butterfly theme look at lifeslittlec@gmail.com. I have 50% off my packages until Sunday night, 25th September.
