Trying to Conquer a Fear

One of the things I love about Spring is all of the colorful party ideas, themes, and celebrations. However, if there is one thing that I hate fear most, its bugs! Unfortunately,  the Spring brings Butterfly birthday parties and Ladybug Luncheons. Things that I could never participate in because I have a HUGE phobia of all creepy crawlers (and fliers). 

I see all the gorgeous decorations and ideas, but hate to see these supposedly graceful winged insects and cringe. I hope to get over this fear someday, but for now its paralyzing. 
Despite this fear, I found these gorgeous party ideas and decorations.

This hanging butterfly (also available in orange, pictured above) comes from Save On Crafts. Its perfect for a fun eye-catching hanging decoration. 

This Grass Patch comes from Social Couture, perfect for creating a Spring/Summer feel. use this for a unique centerpiece.

These Butterflies on Stems come from Hobby Lobby (one of my obsessions) and comes in a variety of colors. Stick these in the grass to make the centerpiece pop.

Use snazzy serve ware and cutlery like these paper plates from Party City.
If you're doing a dinner party, use these gorgeous butterfly place cards from Timeless Paper for a sophisticated spin.

For favor ideas, use colorful jelly beans, gumballs, and rainbow lollipops.
