This weekend we had a bridal shower for my DD. A few weeks ago when we started planning the shower, I thought it might be nice to have a butterfly theme. It really worked out quite well and we had such a nice time with family and friends! Today I’ll share some pics of the projects and decorations I made. Then I’ll be back tomorrow with some more pics to share.
First we needed an invitation! Since I needed multiples, I wanted to make a CAS (clean & simple) card. I figured a white on white card would be elegant and a pop of color with a butterfly should be fun. Here’s the invite…
Next I worked on the table favors. We had “whisked away” heart whisks which I attached a punched butterfly to, and I also made some butterfly houses filled with chocolates. Here’s a few of the many houses I made in different colors.
A few years ago we made these as bird houses…with a round opening in the front and a bird attached. I just used the SU! Word Window punch instead and turned it into a butterfly house. The base is the milk carton die and the roof is a Spellbinders die…held on with a binder clip so you can access the candy inside. A piece of acetate lines the front slot.
I didn’t get a real good photo of the favors on the tables but here’s one I did get.
For the centerpieces I made some tags, each in a different color to match the center flower, with quotes on love and marriage that I printed out and diecut.
All lined up…
And one more pic for today. When my girls were little, I took a pic of them playing dress up with my wedding gown. I am SO glad I did that!!
I’ll be back tomorrow with more pics. Have a great day!
