A Purple Butterfly Birthday Celebration

  It happens every year! Spring comes around and from the beginning of February to the end of April it seems like we have a birthday every couple of days. Between family and friends, trying to make everyone’s day unique can be challenging. But a custom table setting can definitely make a statement. And it can make dinner an extraordinary occasion. Now, I don’t mean going to the party store to get birthday plates and napkins, I’m talking about creating a setting that really speaks to the birthday honoree. One that is uniquely theirs.

One of these soon-to-be birthday girls is a purple diva. In fact she was born loving purple and has never changed. So I thought a purple and silver color scheme would be a sure hit. To give it a bit of fun, I added butterflies – lots and lots of butterflies.

Making a purple & silver place setting and wall of butterflies.

Once again Cricut and Etsy came to the rescue. We cut out varying sizes of several butterfly patterns and created a sweep of solid, sparkling, and laced butterflies for the wall. And we cut out a butterfly themed envelope that we used on the place setting.

The purple pintuck table topper overlay from SmartyHadAParty.com really makes this purple table setting pop. Our purple & silver place setting started with a square beaded disposable charger from Amazon.com. Next came a square plastic dinner plates, Baroque metallic plastic silverware, and silver disposable plastic Champagne glasses all from Smarty Had A Party. On top of that was the butterfly envelope to bring the color and theme to the table top.

This table really does stand out and is the perfect theme for the birthday girl. We’ll add some Chambord – a French black raspberry liqueur – to the Champagne for a Kir Royale for a signature drink. Cheers!
