Etsy Tuesday: A Little Bit of Whimsy

After coming across butterfly escort cards, I thought about how fun a butterfly theme would be for a spring or fall wedding (Monarchs overwinter in California). This is a theme you could do yourself or find on Etsy.

With this theme you start with you. How about butterflies in your hair?

You could also tuck single wire butterflies into your tresses.

Cover tables with butterfly confetti that you can punch yourself from materials that match your colors.

Let guests know their seats with butterfly escort cards.

Or place cards.

If opting for DIY, select handmade papers in your wedding colors and a handy dandy punch and make your own cards. Be sure the paper is a heavier weight (or can be secured to rescued manilla folders) so that your butterflies can safely perch.
