This gorgeous butterfly-themed first birthday party was created by Patricia, Christina, and Shacia of Charm Event Design and is chock full of adorable & “enchanting” details like butterfly-adorned centerpieces and party favors, a butterfly activity table, butterfly-shaped PB&J, and more! (This theme would translate beautifully for a baby or bridal shower too!)

Here are all the fun details, as told by Charm


“Our latest Butterfly Enchantment Party was a first birthday celebration themed with a fall inspired color pallete of rich oranges, deep plums and reds.

We found an eye-catching corduroy fabric (Joann’s Fabric) with colorful butterflies that we custom trimmed to make a vibrant table runner, and we also attached beautiful butterfly cutouts to the back of each kiddie chair for an added enchantment.

The tablescape was embellished with butterfly party favors consisting of mason jars with green moss & a silk butterfly inside. We also included a few fun butterfly facts inside the jars. These delightful jars also doubled as butterfly catchers!

In addition to favors, we also provided a fun butterfly activity. We made butterfly cutouts out of chipboard and spray painted them a cream color and attached hand painted orange dowels to create a buttefly mask. We provided feathers, markers, stickers and jewels for the kids to decorate their custom butterfly mask.

Our butterfly centerpieces were a combination of beautiful fall inspired leaves, gold branches, and silk butterflies which were all purchased at Michaels. We added bands of orange ribbon and attached small white butterflies cutouts from Etsy. We placed the butterfly vases in square white bowls and adorned them with clear mauve toned rocks purchased at a local craft store. (see top image)

We created a butterfly garden to take center stage on our dessert table. We started with a rectangular styrofoam sheet and added green tule and Eucalyptus flower bunches all found at Michaels, then accented the garden with silk butterflies and a misting of gold glitter spray to give it a magical feel!

delicious mini cherry cheesecakes, chocolate drizzled rice crispy treats and chocolated dipped marshallow pops which we found on HWTM Pink Ribbon Party.  As a special treat for the kids, we also made butterfly shaped PB&J snacks. The desserts were all displayed on pretty white platters from Marshalls and round tins from Michaels.
