(Party Spotlight) - Garden

I had the pleasure of attending this party yesterday.
Perfect theme for this time of year.
The stores are filled with tons of bright, colorful and festive decor.
Our hostess did not disappoint! She rocks at setting the scene in her home!

The colors were bright pink, green, orange, and yellow.
So pretty and so girly!


A glimpse of the handmade invitations

Love the tulle!!

Can I just say that I am totally into beverage dispensers(though I own none)
and placed atop the cake stand is even cuter!

Darling felt placemats used as decor

Butterfly & flower garland.

There were several of these flower, butterfly trees displayed.
They were my favorite!

Wheelbarrow centerpiece

Another one of my favs...flower cupcakes!!
The grass was shaved coconut!

One of four themed activities was painting wooden birdhouses.
These were the art tables and centerpieces.

The guests also went outside and caught tissue butterflies with nets!

Look at these tasty creatures the kids found on there bug hunt!

And what would a garden party be without a garden?

The potted favors!

I hope this inspires anyone planning a Spring or Summer party!!
