Download our butterfly template. Use the template with your favorite paper for tracing and cutting your designs. Glue the center of the butterflies onto your paper lanterns, fold the wings of butterflies up and allow glue to dry.
Follow the same steps above for downloading and tracing the butterflies. Next, cut two small slits in the center of the butterfly and weave drinking straw through bottom and top slits.
What else can you do?
The possibilities are almost endless.
TIP: If your butterfly baby shower is in need of a little sparkle, a dusting of glitter on your decorations should do the trick!
If you want to do a winter theme, use white butterflies and white glitter. Add a little tinsel for an extra festive feel!
Thank You Gifts
Butterfly baby shower candles and butterfly soaps are popular party favors. They also make great game prizes. You can decorate favor bags and gift bags with butterfly cut outs. You can also use a butterfly shaped paper-punch, stamps, sticker labels, or free-hand art.
Make some baby shower sweet treats for your guests to take home. Here’s an easy shower favor you can make. This idea is from jugglingwiththekids.com.
Instead of the kiddie snacks, add gourmet candies. Seal the bag and add a decorated clothes pin to the center. That’s it!
TIP: To decorate the clothes pin, try using small strips of designer duct tape. You can find decorated tape in most stores.
Baby shower cupcake ideas
These little butterflies are really easy to do. Use pretzels to make the wings, frosting drops to create the body, m&m’s for the head, and shoe-lace licorice for the antennas!
Simply press pretzels into frosting at an angle, then add the rest of the pieces that make up the butterfly.
If mommy-to-be prefers cake, this is a very simple baby shower cake. Use a 9×11 baking pan, cake mix (homemade or ready-mix), and frosting. Just be sure the cake is cool before you cut it.
Bake a cute and easy baby shower cake
TIP: A cookie cutter is a great way to add butterfly shapes to lots of different foods, like finger sandwiches and rice crispy treats.
A butterfly baby shower that’s fun!
This is as simple as adding a game or activity to your party. One game idea I love is, Baby Book Trivia. It’s easy and guests enjoy it! Here’s what you do: Grab a copy of the classic children’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. Read the book to your guests (or just a few selected pages). Next, quiz your guests on the material you just read. The person to write down the most correct answers wins the game. Guests can also play in team of two and shout out the answers.
