Pretty Butterfly Garden Birthday Party

London's mom Megan had a lovely vision in mind of a butterfly garden themed party to celebrate her daughter's first birthday. She scoured the net and found the perfect decor, but turned to her friend Erin Volante, a local florist, to bring it all together. Erin helped Megan execute her vision, organize vendors, and style the party. And of course Erin put her wonderful floral talent into action and designed the pretty flower arrangements along with a gorgeous welcome wreath.

The party is so feminine and charming, with whimsical details, like the flurry of patterned butterflies above the beautiful dessert table. Guests had their choice of yummy cookies, cupcakes, and dessert bars from Dolce Baking Company and macarons from Natasha's Mulberry & Mott, paired with delicious flavored milk from Shatto Milk Company. Portraits By Lucinda captured all of the details, and you can see more of this sweet soiree in the full gallery.
