i live in los angeles where sunny days typically abound, but the recent weather has been rather exceptionally fine, and the abundance of flora in my garden has attracted a glorious number of butterflies.
well, i couldn't help but be inspired. delicate wings, delicate fabrics, bright corals, whimsical whites... i immediately sat down to design a new butterfly letterpress invitation, with sweet lines and a simple butterfly motif.
to round out the look, i've included a number of fabulous ideas to coordinate with the colors and elegance of this timeless design element.
monique lhuillier's symphony gown from her spring 2009 collection looks like it is made of wings — i love it. anne heap at pink cake box has many butterfly motif cakes in her portfolio, but this is a favorite. it's elegant, colorful and fun.finally, check out martha stewart living for a selection of chic diy accents and butterfly decor ideas. the lines and colors are fresh and simple, like the season.
