Best Kids Parties: Butterflies

My Party

Name: Amelia, 6
Location: Bury St. Edmunds, England

My daughter is the ultimate social butterfly, and wanted to do have a garden party with some of her friends, so a butterfly theme came very naturally! 

I sent little butterfly clips with the invitations, which the girls wore in their hair. When they arrived, they alternately came and had a little "butterfly make-up" session, and their hair done. Some worked on decorating some butterfly wings. 

For food, we served cakes with berries and edible flowers from our garden, drank elderflower cordial, and enjoyed some flower-shaped marshmallows. 

There was a scavenger hunt around the yard, we played "pin the butterfly on the blossom," and musical chairs— my husband played his violin for that! It did start raining twice, and we had to flutter back indoors for a while— but it was all part of the fun. The party was very sweet, busy, and girly.

Thanks, Ariana! More photos and information about the party here.
