Our latest style board is inspired by  a past episode of “My Fair Wedding”, featuring the ever-impressive, Mr. David Tutera. For that episode’s challenge, he was faced with the task of bringing his bride Monique’s butterfly and rainbows-inspired wedding from the kindergarten-esque turn it was heading into a more sedate and elegant affair. Now, while the concept of having butterflies as a main wedding theme is absolutely fabulous, it’s also a theme that can go from glam to kitschy in the blink of an eye, mostly because there is just SO much stuff out there that’s butterfly-themed that one can truly go overboard without even trying to do so.

The trick to making a butterfly-themed event an elegant success is to play up the delicate nature of the butterfly, but to do so with a light touch and don’t give in to the temptation to get too heavy-handed. You don’t have to have everything completely smothered in butterflies. Try looking at some of the colors and using those along with the images of the butterflies so that you end up with a more cohesive palette. You can also play up the spring/butterfly theme in your menu, such as with the starter of rainbow chard or having the cotton candy martini as a signature drink.

Taking a cue from Mr. David, we decided to see how well we could come up with a butterfly/sky themed idea board and we think we did pretty darn well, if we may say so! {Patting ourselves on the backs}. Here’s some of our selections to work into your special event as well as where to find them on the web! We know you’ll have a ton of fun putting your butterfly party together!

Hugs & High Heels!
