I actually picked out this theme MONTHS ago and have been grabbing butterflies every where I saw them. This actually made it really easy and helped spread out the cost! Now with the invention of Pinterest and having photo evidence of these parties for centuries to come, my desire to throw the 'perfect' party is always in full force. But as a SAHM with a mortgage and two kids, extra money for expensive party invitations and personalized labels is rarely in the budget. So I have to get a little more creative on things.
Most of the things I bought for this party were from Dollar Tree. Seriously. The plates, cups, napkins, centerpieces, banner, invitations, table cloth, all from the Dollar Tree. I love getting party stuff there! The rest of the stuff I mainly got at Michaels. Just little butterflies I'd see here and there. I got a few blank paper and wooden butterflies as well and just colored them in myself!
