rainbow butterfly birthday party
we're in the midst of planning our next birthday shindig, so I figure it's a good time to share some parties from last year.
what better way to start than with our rainbow butterfly birthday party from last summer:
INVITATIONS: designed and printed by kellyallison photography using materials from Paper Source and photos pulled from my instagram stream
PARTY FAVORS: everyone received hand tied tutus, and were invited to decorate butterfly crowns (inspired by these, but designed in house and cut from a silhouette cutting machine)
SWEET TREATS: thanks to whisk kid & bakerella, I was empowered to try my hand at the many layer cake and the ever intimidating cake pops. The butterfly chocolate idea is an adaptation on the incredible monarch butterfly from hello cupcake.
PAPER GOODS: mostly sourced from the good people of fort & field (I've said it before, but best party sundries ever!)
DECOR: great ideas from Design*Sponge & Style Me Pretty lead to the cupcake liner pom-poms and the streamer kites.
