I decided that I wanted to ago with the colors yellow, orange and pink and I went from there. One of the first projects I did was to make a giant number one made completely out of butterflies.
|I also made a banner with rosettes and attached them together with some silk ribbon. The paper had a yellow butterfly print on it.|
My next big project was to make a giant number one made out paper flowers using all three colors. I wanted to use this as a photo prop for her official first birthday photo shoot.
I made an ruffle skirt for the cake table and high chair using crepe paper of all 3 colors. I kept it short with the high chair.
For my guest tables I used a flower print table cover and I glued butterfly cut outs on the top of it. For centerpieces I actually just used some of my mason jars and filled them with orange striped straws. Each straw had a butterfly tag in either yellow, orange or pink.
For favors I had some butterfly themed cupcakes and sugar cookies made by Mimma's sweet creations. I placed the butterfly shaped sugar cookies into a small butterfly net to make it look like my guests caught their own butterfly. All throughout the table I also had butterfly topped bottles of bubbles with personalized labels.
The cake (made by Cake-chef bakery) was covered in simple yellow, orange and pink buttercream flowers with just a touch of butterflies here and there.
I hope you enjoy my decorations as much as I did.
