There are so many options to choose from when creating your butterfly centerpieces. Here are a few ideas to inspire you.
1. Butterfly Pick in Mason Jar Bouquet
Your butterfly centerpieces can be as simple as a butterfly pick in a floral bouquet.
To recreate these mason jar butterfly centerpieces, you’ll want to paint or purchase painted mason jars to match your theme’s colors. You could also leave the mason jar unpainted, and they would look great as well.
Add your floral bouquet – either faux or real flowers will work. Then add your butterfly pick to the center of the bouquet for a dreamy centerpiece.
2. Butterfly Stickers in Floral Arrangement
Another way to add butterflies to a floral arrangement is with these 3d butterfly stickers. You can adhere them to the flowers throughout the bouquet with the included glue dots. You may want to consider using a hot glue gun or a stronger glue to really secure them.
These butterfly stickers add a mix of metallic gold foil touches to the table, which really makes the table pop.
3. Floral Hoop Butterfly Centerpieces
Floral hoops are another popular choice for centerpieces, and we will see quite a few of them in this guide because they look beautiful within the butterfly theme.
The above centerpieces feature faux flowers in a rustic box with a floral hoop nested into it. A gold butterfly sticker is placed on the side of the hoop.
You can find a set of floral hoops perfect for DIY centerpieces and simply affix your accents to it.
4. Birdcage Butterfly Centerpieces
Birdcages are a trending choice within the butterfly theme, creating a whimsical look at an event.
Greenery and floral accents are placed inside the cage, while butterflies are placed on the outside of it.
5. Mini Balloon Garland Centerpieces
How adorable are these balloon garland centerpieces? I love that the balloons blend with the theme’s color. Butterflies and floral accents are placed throughout the balloons in different designs.
6. Floral Hoop with Fairy Lights
This butterfly centerpiece may be my favorite. The floral hoop is wrapped with, but this one is wrapped fairy light wire, which adds a whimsical touch to it. The faux bouquet is nestled in the bottom corner, while butterfly decals are placed throughout the top of the hoop.
Adding fairy lights is such a great idea because it really gives the decor an enchanted garden feel.
7. Balloon Stick Centerpiece with Butterflies
This is another style of balloon garland you could use for butterfly centerpieces. The balloon stick holds one large balloon at the top, while smaller balloon garland is attached throughout the stick. Butterflies are then placed throughout the balloons. The pastel colors really make this butterfly centerpiece stand out.
8. Large Butterfly Balloon Stick
We have another example of balloon garland, but this time a smaller group of balloons are placed at the top of the balloon stick, and large, beautiful butterflies cover the balloon stick.
9. Butterfly Vase Stand
This wooden butterfly acts as a bouquet holder in these beautiful centerpieces.
10. Balloon Cherry Tree
Tree branches sprout out from the greenery and floral elements on this butterfly centerpiece. The small pink balloons remind me of cherry blossoms with butterflies spread among them.
11. Floral Hoop White Butterfly
Another floral hoop is used for this butterfly birthday party. I love the simplicity of this one.
12. Gold Floral Hoop
Another look at a floral hoop centerpiece, this one in gold with more greenery and gold butterflies. You can make any floral hoop centerpiece match your theme. For example, you can add blue butterflies and flowers for a blue color palette.
13. Table Runner Display
This whole tablescape looks great. A moss table garland spreads throughout the center of the table, giving it a garden party vibe. Small vases are placed throughout the table, some with flowers and some with butterfly sprays. In key places, dome-shaped terrariums are placed on the table with greenery and butterflies inside.
14. Faux Tree Centerpiece
A small faux tree is used as a beautiful centerpiece for this baby shower. A larger butterfly is placed within the tree.
15. Neutral Tree + Floral Centerpiece
Here we have a tall glass vase with branches and faux, neutral flowers inside of it. I absolutely love the look of this centerpiece, and the white butterflies attached to the flowers really pop against the neutral colors.
16. Pink Balloon Garland
Here is another idea for a butterfly balloon garland centerpiece. A large butterfly is used to cover the balloon stick pole, while pink balloons are placed at the top. Again, we see these gold butterflies attached throughout the balloons.
17. “Oh Baby” Floral Centerpiece
Finally, we have a very simple yet beautiful butterfly centerpiece. A gold vase holds a floral bouquet, and a butterfly “Oh Baby” spray is placed within them.
Butterfly centerpieces are the perfect touch to any butterfly-themed event! They add a whimsical touch to a stunning baby shower theme.
