Crafting a 3 year old birthday party ~ Butterfly style.

Friday, August 3, 2012

Well, tomorrow is my little love's 3rd birthday party and I still have so much to do! Am I absolutely insane to be throwing such a big soiree for the munchkin, this close to delivering another? Probably. But it seems I just can't help myself.
These are the things about motherhood that bring me joy. And I know when little dude comes along, she'll be feeling all sorts of new and scary emotions like jealousy, competition and out-right confusion that another little person has entered her domain and taken her mommy's attention. So I'm going to do my best to make her feel loved and important spoil her rotten, while I'm still able standing.
In this case, her request was butterfly everything, so I started with the invitations. A Martha Stewart butterfly punch and construction paper, personalized envelopes and enclosures. And I kinda think these butterfly snack bags (I stayed up way too late last night making)... are pretty damn cute, if I do say so myself.
Much more to share and show you, which I'll be sure to capture in pictures on the day. But for now, I must step away from the computer and figure out how to ice a (specifically requested) yellow and pink butterfly birthday cake.
Here's hoping for a reaction like this tomorrow...


  1. Awwww! Adorable! Love Stella!

    I had contractions at my Stella's 3rd Birthday! Ruby arrived exactly 7 days later... don't try and do too much spoiling! Remember to take breaks often ;0)

  2. love the butterfly popcorn baggies! great idea!!!!

  3. I hope it turns out wonderfully

  4. So cute! Happy Birthday to Stella (love the name).

    I love crafting (don't have enough time to do it even though I'm an ART teacher hah)...and I did a lot of DIY for Max's 1st Birthday. (And a lot for my wedding too). I am still trying to figure out the where and theme for his 2nd (5 months ahead of time).

    I love the butterfly theme. My Grandma was very into butterflies so they are special to me.

    I hope y'all have a blast. I can't wait to see pics.

  5. cute is she!
    Connor's bday is 5 weeks after c I fear he is going to get a less than stellar bday...but I will do my will be small..but it will surely be a day ALL ABOUT MY FIRST lil man.... Ah, relishing these last few weeks with ONE, because the chaos is coming sister.
