Butterfly Party Inspiration

There is something so innocent and lovely about butterflies- that I couldn’t help putting together this butterfly party decor post. Adding a little flutter to your typical dinner party is pretty simple- and will surely tickle your dinner guests. A butterfly party theme is also very versatile; birthdays, anniversary parties, garden parties…even bridal and baby showers. For a little inspiration, above: Butterfly Paper Lanterns and Drink Stirrers via Martha Stewart, butterfly cupcake wrapper via the Knot Shop, and gorgeous butterfly table decor from Southern Living.

DIY Wedding Aisle

Weddings are perhaps my favorite occasion to celebrate, and also my favorite to coordinate. Love, romance, and a plethora of fresh blooms– I mean come on, who doesn’t love weddings? When coordinating a wedding, I tend to favor simple ideas that create a stunning result. This DIY wedding aisle inspiration from Martha Stewart Weddings is one of “those.” Look how simple this idea is. Fresh rose petals and hurricane vases with floating candles? Very simple but oh so stunning, right? I just had to share this!

Host a Knitting Party {and invite me}!

About four months ago, I read The Friday Night Knitting Club- and I often still think about that story with the cute characters and that charming little Manhattan yarn shop. No, I do not know how to knit- but ever since I read this book I have been dying to learn how! Perhaps I will have the spare time in the future to learn but for know why not just throw a knitting- themed party? This would be a cute party theme for a birthday of someone you loves to knit, for Mother’s Day, or just to surprise Grammy.

Check out this adorable knitting basket cake created by the masters at Cake Journal!

This is just the most adorable cake I have seen! Loving the giant balls of yarn. Visit Cake Journal and find out how to make a knitting basket cake yourself.

For your party decor, the gang at the DIY Network has a step by step tutorial on how to make over sized yarn centerpieces which would go perfectly with your knitting basket cake!

And for a little blog love, I came across this knitting blog Wool and the Gang and can’t get enough of it- even though I am a wanna-be-someday-knitter… I still think it rocks!

Oh and during my knitting party inspiration search, I discovered that there is now a sequel to the book that started my infatuation with knitting- so I will be heading out to pick up my copy of Knit Two and get my “fix.”

The Lovely Language of Flowers

Most often- it is the little details that make all the difference. Little thoughtful touches can really be impressive and usually are much more meaningful. While checking out my favorite magazine, I came across this very thoughtful idea. The next time you make or order a flower arrangement for someone, consider picking out blooms that fit their personality. Did you know flowers have meaning? Me either. Not only are they gorgeous sentiments- they also can hold extra special meaning to.

If you are a bride, I love this idea over at Real Simple: Add a signature flower to each of your bridesmaids bouquets that fit their personality. Attach a small note sharing why you chose that particular flower for them. Thoughtfull right?

Here are what a few of my favorite flowers mean- in the language of blooms:

-Lily: Purity and sweetness

-Peony: Happiness and prosperity

-Sweet Pea: Departure

To see what your favorite blooms means, visit Real Simple to read their full list.
