Butterfly Party Stamps

Personalize your stamps by using zazzle

custom postage. There are so many great butterfly images we just chose a few samples to display so scroll through all the images to chose your personal favorite. Before purchasing any postage, please be sure to bring a complete invitation, including all inserts, to a local post office to determine exactly how much postage is required.

If you decide not to customize, please do not mix stamps. It is better to add too much postage than a hodgepodge of mismatched stamps. You have spent so much time and money on every other detail, the difference in price is not worth giving a sloppy first impression.

 

Butterfly Party Table Linens

Interestingly, most people we have worked with who choose a butterfly theme also choose lavender as their primary color. Consider using lilac lamour linens. If you want to add more dimension consider a purple smoke shimmer sheer. Pair with either lilac lamour napkins or light blue lamour napkins.

If you want to save some money, most venues will supply complimentary white or cream linens; both are great with this theme. Likewise, if you are hosting a butterfly party at your house just about any color linen you have will be fine. In fact, placemats also also work, and to tell you the truth, rather than spending lots of money on place mats, I often use individual sheets of scrap booking paper.

If you are feeling creative and have lots of time, you can even create a layout highlighting your guest of honor. Alternatively, use your place mats as place cards by creating a page for each of your guests. Laminate it and tie with personalized ribbon for a complete favor anyone can enjoy.

 

Too busy or just not that into DIY, make it easy on yourself and purchase these butterfly place mats …

Just a note on chair covers: chair covers may not be necessary if the chairs supplied are fairly neutral and in ok condition. In fact, I tend to not use chair covers at any of my personal parties. Having said that, if your budget permits, the overall look of certain rooms is enhanced if chair pads are used. Choose one of your accent colors.

 

If you are having a fairly large party, don’t forget to include your place card table, your gift table, buffet tables, and any ceremonial tables when determining your linen count. Also, if you chose to use more ornate linens, do not use them for the cocktail hour; they will have a greater impact as your guests enter the dining room.

Butterfly Party Centerpieces

Butterflies everywhere …

Butterfly Basket

Although these butterfly floral arrangements are no longer available they are great examples for inspiration.

Another option is to use a single butterfly vase in the center of your table or line three butterfly vases down the middle of your table. Add fresh flowers bought in bulk and a sprinkling of butterfly decorations.
