Butterfly Baby Shower: Baby Girl Shower Theme

My beautiful granddaughter, Angelina Lucia, was born on Friday, 7/17/09.

My daughter wanted a butterfly themed baby shower. I took a few simple and cost effective items and came up with this beautiful butterfly baby shower.

Everything was pink and purple and accented with butterflies. It was very girlie! I made her this beautiful 6 tier diaper cake which was basically my 4 tier butterfly diaper cake with a couple of extra tiers. It was made with approximately 200 diapers and decorated with butterfly themed baby items.

I did two different baby shower favors with a butterfly theme.

These printable candy bar wrappers were really easy to personalize and I tied them in with the theme by adding butterfly and heart stickers. They are available in pink, blue, and multi color.

I also used these baby girl favor boxes and added a small hanging butterflies to tie into the theme. The butterflies were actually a fringe that I found at a fabric store. I just cut the butterflies off of the ribbon and attached them with a glue dot inside the box. These baby shower favor boxes are so cute and can be filled with candy, mints, or a small travel candle. They are also available in blue with a sailboat or green with a star decoration.

For dessert I made cupcakes with these adorable sugar crafted butterflies. I found these edible cupcake decorations at Shopbakersnook.

I displayed them on a cupcake stand that I made. I found a great tutorial on making your own cupcake stand. It was easy to make and I decorated it to match the butterfly theme.

As for decorations and tableware, I went to a local party supply store and found butterfly themed tableware and the adorable hanging decorations you see in the background.

It turned out to be a beautiful butterfly themed baby shower!
