My weekend was soo exciting! We had a bridal shower for my dear friend Hannah and as one of the matron of honors, I made sure to shower her with class and with lots and lots of butterflies. She REALLY loves butterflies!!! I present you a bridal shower with a butterfly theme.
Lots of handmadebysarakim touches went into this shower. Well I can’t cook, I can’t bake so my duty was decorations. Most of the decorations were DIY, from the paper flower arch with navy blue, light blue, poppy red, coral, ivory, and gold colors. The flowers also had some gold butterflies. I also sewed some table runners which was very easy as long as you find a cute fabric, which I chose the cream with gold polka dots and attached a navy blue tassel in the ends. Since Hannah’s wedding colors were going to be navy blue and gold, we put a hint of it in the shower as well. We also had some handmadebysarakim paper flower pens as favors and centerpieces with lots of faux butterflies. If you don’t know, faux butterflies are actually pretty pricey, so our second plan was to just cut out butterflies out of paper but I randomly came across a huge pack of faux butterflies thrifting at Savers!!! So I think I spent $10 for 80 butterflies. You know how much I love great deals~

Advice to all the maid of honors and bridesmaids out there- choose a theme that the bride would love, DIY crafts with a good attitude (if you are not crafty, it’s OK! initiate other duties that you would love to do for the bride), and lastly if you are not crafty and you are broke and super busy (understandable, life can be a hot mess)… constantly keep your bride in your prayers, it’s the least we can do as the bridal party.
Hannah, the bride to be, I’m so happy for you and I hope you enjoyed yourself at the shower. We love you and the butterflies loves you too.
Behind the scenes in making those paper flowers. For weeks, it was lots of labor of love but also very fun seeing these flowers on my floor. If any bridesmaids out there need any invitations, bingo cards, menu cards, party favors, paper flowers, or just some advice let us know at email@example.com
