Butterfly Baby Shower Decorations and Centerpieces

Butterfly Wings in Assorted Colors (5pc)

For this baby shower theme, you will want to create a garden feel. Decide on a color scheme and stay with it through out the shower. Pastels are a good choice for this butterfly themed shower. The Carter's Baby Girl Baby Shower Deluxe Party Kit is prefect for this butterfly baby theme. The colors that match it are purple, pink, and green. So very cute!

Start with pastel colored tablecloths. Hang a Carter's Baby Girl Letter Banner over the table. Add tulle bows to the chairs (just tie a long piece of white tulle around the back of the chair and tie in a bow). Add pretty flowers and butterflies to the bow with wire or hot glue.

Your butterfly shower centerpieces can be several different things. The first thing you can do is make a butterfly diaper cake. See the instructions on how to make a basic diaper cake here. Then just add in your favorite butterfly themed baby stuff.

Another great idea for a butterfly centerpiece is to purchase good sized flower pots. Paint them to match your color scheme. Add some florist foam in the pot. Find a print of a baby with butterfly wings and cut it out and glue to thick poster board. Glue onto a small dowel rod. Poke it into the florist foam. Next, fill in the pot with large silk flowers. Add a large butterfly or two. You can also add in garden elements. The ones that you stick in your yard. Then you want to hide the florist foam with tissue or gift basket shred. This makes a very large and whimsical baby shower centerpiece.

A really simple baby shower centerpiece idea is to fill a vase with branches that you have spray painted white. Hot glue pretty little colorful butterflies all on the branches.

And another option is to start with the Carter's Baby Girl Table Decorating Set and add to it.

Use Butterfly Wings in Assorted Colors all around the shower area. Hang them from the ceiling with fishing wire. Secure them to the walls. And place on tables.

Purchase Round Paper Lanterns and hot glue butterflies all around them. Hang at different lengths from the ceiling.

Use baby gifts as part of the baby shower decor. Place a cute Butterfly Bank in and amongst all the other decor and then Mom will have a gift to take home.

Place trees and plants all around the shower area to create the garden feel as well. Secure butterflies to the leaves. Twinkle lights are a great decorating tool. It gives a soft glow. Candles are a great way to bring in soft lighting as well.

Butterfly Baby Shower Game And Activity Ideas

Butterfly Pinata

Pinatas are fun at any party or shower. You can also just use it as decor.

Butterfly Release

Purchase real butterflies online. Give each guest a butterfly (they come in a package) and let everyone release them at once. This makes a beautiful display as the butterflies will linger around for awhile.

Baby Memory Tray

Before the shower, prepare a tray with baby items on it (try to find items with butterflies on them or just place butterflies on the tray as well). Items like...diaper, shoes, powder, clippers, bottle, rattle, pacifier, ect. At the start of the shower, show everyone the tray. Take the tray away and don't mention it for a while. Later on in the shower, give everyone a piece of paper and a pencil. The players must write down as many items as they can remember. The player with the most right answers, wins.

Who's That Cute Baby?

Get baby pictures of all the guests before the shower. Place them in pretty butterfly picture frames, number them, and place around the baby shower area. One of the games can be guessing who is who.

Printable Baby Shower Games
