Butterfly Themed Baby Shower - Success

Butterfly Wishing Tree

The Butterfly themed baby shower could not of been held on a more beautiful day. The sun was shining (almost too brightly...some of us melted) and there was a gentle breeze that rustled the butterfly wind chimes hanging in the tree.
My first attempt at a Wishing tree turned out very well I thought. The very center of the cylinder is filled with disc shaped styrofoam and is then surrounded by rocks that I had left over from a previous project. The pebble sized moss was a great find at the Dollar Tree and will most definitely be used for future projects. This would be a great table centerpiece but at on a much smaller scale.

Personalized Sugar cookies

Each guest had a bag containing a cookie with their name on it and if their child or children accompanied them there was a cookie with their name as well. They were a lot of work but a great personal touch to the baby shower.

This is a small section of the food buffet. I am very thrilled with the diversity that glass jars possess. I can dress them up for any occasion and they hold odd shaped treats perfectly. This jar of chocolate covered pretzels was a big hit with the children. 

This week I will be showing you some great baby shower theme's and ideas. The wonderful thing with baby shower theme's is that most of them can be used as 1st birthday party theme's as well!
Regardless, just have fun with it and it will show in your party.
