What a sweet dessert table! I especially love all of the darling desserts in it! From the adorable cupcakes and cookies to the yummy looking dessert cups! I also love the cute labels and tags! This party is too cute and would not only work for birthday party, but for a garden playdate as well.
The Purple Butterfly Garden party ideas and elements that I adore most from this precious birthday celebration are:
- The adorable cookies and cupcakes topped with purple fondant butterflies and yellow flowers
- The darling dessert labels and tags
- The cute yellow and purple backdrop with flying purple butterflies on it
- The cute cake
- and MORE!

Purple Butterfly Garden Party Details:
This is what Gerri said about planning/styling the party- “This sweet dessert table was styled for the first year birthday celebration for a little girl, named Sienna, during our down-under spring last year.
With the styling cues of purple butterflies provided by Siennas mummy, we were inspired by the thought of a young, fresh, pretty garden party with a sunny, breezy atmosphere, white lattice, luscious florals, and the magical whisper of purple butterflies. The party was held in a rotunda in a local park.
The backdrop was designed by Li-Ann from Ham&Pea Design&Paperie based on our brief and design ideas.
Sweets and beverages
Jen from A Little Slice of Heaven created the most beautiful biscuits and cupcakes based on the backdrop design. She also made delicious coconut ice and added some darling fondant flowers and pearls – she has such a wonderful eye for detail.
Coby from Taart made rosewater & berry panna cotta pots, berrymisu pots, apricot & almond balls, white chocolate & raspberry blondies, coconut stacks, lemon meringue tarts, and white chocolate truffles. Coby was so helpful with dairy-free options for some of the petite desserts to cater for Sienna and her mummy.
Trish from Marche du Macaron made the fabulous passionfruit & orange macarons and citrus lemon macarons, and added darling fresh violets to the delicious salted caramel macarons.
Candies for the table included banana lollies (a special request for Siennas daddy) and Persian fairy floss (a special request for Siennas aunty).
We covered mini white chocolate crisp chocolate bars with white paper, and added a personalised sticker and a cute little white grosgrain ribbon as a lovely added detail.
Traditional lemonade with whole lemons was served in a beautiful etched glass drink dispenser.
Siennas cake was created by Coby from Taart.
The beautiful florals were created by Perrotts Florists.
Details and Stationery
We, at Little Birdie Events, created the simple but sweet stationery elements with elements of lace and butterflies for the dessert table based on our colour palette of lavender, lilac, soft yellow and bright white.
We cut out butterflies and tied them with fishing line inside our white birdcage so they appeared as if they were flying inside – we were told this was a favourite touch for many of the guests.
Food was served on beautiful white pearl-edged photo frames to provide beautiful detail as well as elevation. We thought the style of the Rosanna collection of serve wear worked especially well with the theme.
The same personalised stickers we created for the chocolate bars were also affixed to the glass mini drink bottles.
We really enjoyed creating this beautiful dessert table for Siennas first birthday celebration”.
