Butterfly party

Allow me to show you what we did during the blizzard on Sunday. Our little one turned three. So hard to believe that three years ago she came into our lives.
She was very sure that she wanted a butterfly party. So this is what we did.

The goodie bags had butterfly stickers , a small book, marker butterfly
spinner and a star shaped crayon. These came from the amazing Stubby Pencil Studio.

We had butterflies hanging from the ceiling cut from craft paper. We decorated hats with butterfly stickers and I found these great coloring sheets from Dover puplishing that after you colour them you can hang them on a window and they look like stained class.

I got the idea for these sandwiches from a old Martha Stewart magazine. It is just wrapping paper and double sided tape! Looks great but not a lot of work.

The cake was a 4 layer red velvet cake and had candy, butterflies and a lovely " Vintage By Crystal" dollie as a cake topper.
We had a great time!

What a wonderful party! I love butterflies! I had two little boys so I had batman, noah's ark, and bulldozer birthday parties for them. I cherish those times.

How fun! I miss parties like that now that my girls are all grown up. Your "Butterfly Birthday Girl" is a doll!
