Butterfly Bridal Shower Decor

What’s especially great about this theme is that you really can’t overdo it on the amount of butterflies you bring into the décor, food, games, or favors. You can even wrap up the bride’s gifts in butterfly themed paper and set her up an area for gift opening that replicates a wild butterfly garden. You can do tons of your own paper cutouts of butterflies in all sizes and tape them up along walls, tables, chairs, doorways, and even create neat garland out of them. Keep your color palate for decorations just as charming, and stick with glossy whites, pastel pinks, sky blues, and butter yellow. You can utilize these hues in balloons, streamers, flag banners showcasing congratulations messages to the bride-to-be, tablecloths, chair sashes, and the color of the faux butterfly accent as well. Don’t forget sweet table accents such as glittering butterfly confetti and vases filled with gorgeous river rock and a variety of garden blooms that butterflies would be known to love.

Butterfly Bridal Shower Food

For food fare, opt for decadent and visually beautiful tastes. Make the center of your main event table the shower cake, and think about doing a multi-tiered cake with rainbow ombre icing and lots of butterfly sugar accents, along with a great topper with “I do!” spelled out in miniature butterflies. Sugar cookies and cupcakes with thick, colorful frosting and bouncing butterfly decorations. Pearlescent cakepops and corresponding treats like flower shaped candies are delicious and a really great extra for guests to enjoy. Pink lemonade and peach Bellini’s, along with fresh veggie plates and tea sandwiches are just as delicious and pair great with the desserts.

Butterfly Bridal Shower Games


Activities and games can range from old-school favorites such as Bridal Secrets, the Wedding Dress Toilet Paper Contest, Mad Libs, or Bridal Bingo. Likewise, you can come up with some new creative games as well that incorporate the theme of butterflies into them. Have guests use mix artwork and butterflies with activities such as paint by number or creating stain glass with butterfly images.

Butterfly Bridal Shower Favors

Don’t forget to be unique with your party favors for guests to show them how much you appreciate them coming out to celebrate the new bride. Butterfly wine bottle stoppers, charm bracelets, candle holders, or smaller pieces of artwork are all fabulous ways to send your guests home with a keepsake they will love forever.
