Butterfly Birthday {The Party}

It rained the day of Adalyn's butterfly birthday party. So, all of my plans for sun filled, happy photos were "drenched." Instead the crowd moved inside and we celebrated in tight quarters under low light. The birthday girl on the other hand was GLOWING. See how excited she was to show off her butterfly cake?! That's what matters, right?
I filled vintage butterfly tea cups with "Flower straws" and labeled the drinks "nectar." (My mom's clever idea.) The Butterfly shaped chalk boards were at Michaels.
 The centerpiece was two butterfly catchers and magnetic butterflies in a simple vase. The bowl of caterpillars (gummy worms) were a big hit.
 The girls and I had a blast making these candy filled butterflies. Inspired by this post. Adalyn was SCARED of the googly eyes when they were in the package but were okay with them once we had them on the butterfly bodies. Too funny. The kiddos loved them and they were simple to make. Clothes pins covered in colored paper. Black pipe cleaner for the antennas. Googly eyes and candy bags filled with Skittles (Adalyn's favorite candy).
 The cake was inspired by her butterfly feet birthday party invitation. The wings were heart shaped and it was delicious!
 She had a blast opening gifts and was so sweet to everyone. I could listen to her say "tank too" over and over. Oh, and can you believe that she actually wore that adorable butterfly wing head band all evening?!
Happy birthday, sweet Adalyn. We love you!
