Looking for a whimsical bridal shower idea? Today we’re sharing a beautiful butterfly bridal shower that’s full of soft colors and sweet florals.
A Sweet Color Palette
When planning your butterfly bridal shower, start with a color palette that fits with the idea you have in your head. Soft pastels work well and follow the colors of lots of flower varieties. Mix your favorite shades of pink, purple, yellow and green for this theme, and add in pops of gold for a bit of sparkle and shine.
Butterflies are drawn to flowers, so incorporate lots of florals into your bridal shower decor. Keeping with the same colors as your color palette, choose florals for your centerpieces, garlands and hangings and for any other photobooth or backdrop area. Flowers are sure to make an impact at this butterfly shower.
Another fun activity for the guests and bride alike – a flower bar! Visit a local flower farm to pick a variety of wildflowers and greenery. Set up an area for guests to construct their own flower bouquets or make floral crowns – they’ll all feel like garden queens!
Include flower prints on your stationery and favor boxes as well! Soft colors and great greens paired together work well for the shower invitations, thank you cards and other printed materials.
Keep your shower light and fun with a sweet treats bar!
Instead of having a full meal, host your shower in the mid morning or mid afternoon and let guests choose from a variety of sweets to snack on. Butterfly cookies with the couple’s monogram and a tower of macaroons are both fun and beautiful options for your treats bar and fit with the theme and color palette nicely.
Host a mimosa and sparkling water bar at your butterfly bridal shower, too! Guest can customize their drinks and fill them with fresh fruit garnishes that match the colors of the shower.
Your sweets and drinks will be a hit at this sweet shower!
Don’t let guests leave empty handed! Thank them for helping you shower the bride with pretty little favor boxes filled with goodies. Floral butterfly favor boxes are the perfect size for filling with sweet treats or trinkets, like a butterfly bottle opener that will come in handy at home.
Your butterfly bridal shower will be a beautiful celebration of the bride to be and will leave her feeling loved and blesses to have so many wonderful people helping her celebrate her upcoming vows.
