This hot pink & yellow color palette feels so fun and “happy“! In addition to the fabulous dessert table, other creative details included a homemade hot pink door wreath, patterned paper pinwheels, butterfly accents in the flowers, and a whimsical favor table featuring butterfly wings and butterfly catchers for the girls!

Lauren is obsessed with butterflies right now, so we picked this theme for her birthday. We chose the colors hot pink and yellow because she also loves yellow and I thought the combination of the colors was bright, bold, and cheerful. They are so vibrant and were perfect for an end-of-the-summer bash!

Invitations
Being inspired by the silhouette trend right now, I took it a step further by layering it with a contrast butterfly that you could see through. I love the layered effect and how it makes the butterfly pop! The invitation was bright and bold with these cute little layered butterflies flying around Lauren’s head.

I carried the signature colors and a bold yellow wide stripe pattern throughout all the paper products – from the cupcake toppers and adorable favor boxes to the fabrics on the dessert and favor tables.

Dessert Table
Coming from a dessert loving family and being inspired by the Amy Atlas dessert tables, we had a wide array of goodies for the guests…

The amazing cake – made by Esmeralda of Sin City Sweets – took center stage on the table. She also made lemon cake cupcakes with raspberry fill crowned with hot pink and yellow icing.

Esmeralda also made the most delicious cake pops that were gone in seconds!

For the sugar lovers there was rock candy, sugar buttons, and gumballs served in apothecary jars on a platter.

The dessert table and favor table were draped with a wide yellow stripe fabric and tied with hot pink bows. I thought it fitting to have white drapes tied back with hot pink ribbon for behind the dessert table – perfect for the sweet butterflies!

All the kids were given butterfly wings and butterfly catchers to dress up and play with… Little butterfly crayons were in matching yellow striped boxes for them to take home. They all looked so cute running around with their wings on, and it was a great way to spend a summer afternoon!

Paper lanterns were hung from the trees and matching pinwheels were placed throughout the garden.

Lauren’s birthday present even was decorated to match! I made a hot pink floral wreath and painted her initial with a butterfly for the side of it. The chalk board frame was painted yellow and hangs next to her door so mommy and daddy can write little notes to her.

Lauren wore an adorable yellow tutu with hot pink at the ends with a ribbon tank all designed by Strawberrie Rose. She looked so sweet in this outfit with yellow butterfly wings!”

      I found the fabric at Ikea in the textiles department, it’s available in stores only and I had to ask for it because the dept is tucked away in a back corner at our location. Hope this helps, it’s gorgeous and made for a beautiful party! It’s called Sofia fabric and I just found it in the last chances up to 50% off.
