The Paper Butterfly

It is hard to imagine the impact this cute little paper butterfly can make as a small detail piece in a tablesetting.  I asked myself, would the Easter tablescape be the same without the butterflies in the tablesetting and floral arrangement?  



 I tried just that.  I wanted to see just what would happen if I removed the butterflies that were placed on the napkins and in the floral arrangement.  Would it make much difference? What do you think?

Without Butterflies
With Butterflies



















It certainly does.  I know now not to under estimate the power of this little detail. In my opinion, the paper butterfly, as an element of detail, has a huge influence on the ambience of the table.  Who would think a small folded piece of paper would have that much of a punch to the total effect of the table.

Happy Spring!
