Butterfly Baby Shower


A butterfly baby shower is one of our favorites.  Butterflies make a great theme because they are easy and versatile.  Butterfly themed showers can be elegant, cute, or anywhere in between.  Butterfly party supplies and decorations are available in all sorts of colors, so you won’t be limited with the color palettes that you have to choose from.  You can even use a butterfly paper punch to make your own decorations in whatever colors you’d like.

There are so many different ways to include butterflies in a baby shower.  The four best places to use your theme are with the invitations, decorations, favors, and food.  For some ideas on how to add butterflies to each of these areas check out the links below.

butterfly baby shower favors

If you want to include the butterfly theme in the baby shower favors there are a couple different ways you can do that.  First, you could make the favor itself highlight the butterfly theme.  You could give the guests butterfly cookies, cookie cutters, cupcakes embellished with a butterfly, etc.  Or you could use packaging that features the butterfly theme.  There are both favor labels and boxes that could hold whatever treat you wish to give and also show off the butterfly theme.
