Butterfly Decorations for a Baby Shower

Choosing the Best Color Scheme for a Butterfly Baby Shower Theme
Here are some tips for how to choose the colors for your party.

1. If the mother-to-be has a butterfly baby nursery in the works, take a peek at the room and use the nursery's color scheme for your shower. If the baby's theme has nothing to do with butterflies, it would still be nice to plan your party based on the nursery's decor.

2. Plan the colors of your butterfly baby shower decorations to reflect a favorite butterfly

Every hostess should have paper lanterns in her cache of party supplies because they are so cheap and so decorative.

An arrangement of paper lanterns and tissue paper pom poms make a lovely, inexpensive ceiling arrangement. Add yellow silk butterflies to a cluster of purple and lavender lanterns with invisible nylon thread in keeping with your butterfly theme. Simply remove the butterflies at the end of the party and they're ready to use again.

It's always a good idea to make baby shower favors and choose gifts in a butterfly theme that can be used as part of the decorations to stretch your entertainment budget.

Welcome your guests with a pretty butterfly wreath on the door. This wreath features both butterflies and dragonflies and you might consider adding a ladybug or two. It would be easy to make the wreath yourself to save money and it will make a lovely gift for the guest of honor to take home for her own front door or mantle.

To save money, attach butterflies to your existing door wreath and remove them when the shower is over and your guests have gone.

Design the wreath in spring colors or in keeping with your party supplies and tableware.

Butterflies and flowers are a natural combination and you can easily make your own baby shower centerpieces using flowers from your own garden.

Pink roses and green hydrangea flowers in a white milk glass vase make a pretty centerpiece for the gift or dessert table. Surround the vase with green moss dotted with silk or edible butterflies. Add a wooden butterfly house to each arrangment that have been personalized with each guest's name. These pretties will serve as part of the decorations during the event and baby shower favors when the party is over.

You might also transform a plain paper tablecloth into one that is perfect for your butterfly theme baby shower with a butterfly stencils.

Butterfly Theme Baby Shower Ideas and more!
If you feel that butterflies on their own need a little boost to make them more interesting, it's not unusual for a hostess to add additional layers to the theme. For instance you could jazz things up by combining your butterfly theme with a garden fairies theme. Imagine a party decorated with both butterflies, fairies with centerpieces and cakes decorated with fairy wings and butterflies. That's just one idea for many of the creative butterfly baby shower decorating ideas that are possible with this theme.

Butterfly parties are traditionally best in spring and summer. If the weather cooperates and it’s nice enough you may be able to hold the party out of doors. Check to see if you might take advantage of a friend’s butterfly garden. It would be lovely to have some real butterflies in addition to your other butterfly party supplies.

Butterfly Party Decorations and Supplies
If the party is planned during the daylight hours, lots of fluffy tulle secured on the chair backs in "puffs" or layered as tablecloths would keep the light and airy look of your butterfly theme going. Consider decorating in colors of a Monarch or any other butterfly that you select and sticking with that color scheme throughout the room.

If the party is held outdoors during the evening, lanterns with butterfly motifs would make a lovely centerpiece on each table and strings of patio lights decorated with silk butterflies will make the room sparkle and give your party the look of an exotic garden.
