Butterfly 1st Birthday Party

butterfly birthday party ideas

Once the Holidays are past us, I love looking towards Spring!  The glitz and glam of the Holiday decorations leave me yearning for clean, fresh, simple decorations that scream Spring.  If you have Spring birthdays in your family, now is the time to start planning!

Butterflies are the perfect theme for a Spring birthday party.  This darling invitation from Tiny Prints sets the mood for a whimsical party full of stylish details.  Using shades of green, purple, pink, and a touch of blue as your color palette, define your party space by hanging these charming butterflies over the table.  Create a simple table setting by placing a small vase of flowers atop green dinner plates. (the vase of flower serves as a darling party favor too!)

Continue your decorations throughout the party by incorporating natural elements, such as grass and leaves.  I love using boxes of grass as centerpieces for a party! (click here to see how I have used them before)  To switch up the hanging decorations, try wrapping styrofoam balls with green raffia, or moss wire.   Insert a few flowers, or wire butterflies for a little extra touch!

Chocolate butterflies are a festive addition to either a birthday cake or cupcakes.  They are very simple to make (click here for full instructions) and will add a “wow!” to your party.  Carrying the butterfly theme throughout will give your party a cohesive look….from invitations, to decorations,  to your party favors.  I love, love, love this display idea for your party favors.  Classic containers are presented on glass cake plates covered with moss.  Add in a few wire butterflies and your guests will be charmed by this whimsical display.  Dress up your containers with personalized labels that coordinate with the darling invitation.

This butterfly party is the perfect way to welcome Spring and a festive way to celebrate a special birthday!
