butterfly chic Mother’s Day


Our mother loved butterflies and I regret that I never asked her why they so enchanted her, but she is definitely not alone. The butterfly motif (which dates back to ancient times and was particularly appealing to Victorians) seems to be quite popular these days.

We’ve gathered some of our favorite things that might inspire a butterfly chic Mother’s Day.


Like this botanical print Passion Flowers and Butterflies by artist Elizabeth Golz Rush.



Or a blue and white butterfly motif garden stool for inside or out.


Chrysalis: Maria Sibylla Merian and the Secrets of Metamorphosis by Kim Todd tells the story of a 17th century female botanical artist and naturalist.




Pretty engraved butterfly note cards


Botanical Art with Scientific Illustrations by Sarah Jane Humphrey is a beautiful book that is both informative and instructive if you want to try your hand at botanical illustration.


Exotic Butterfly: A fun and lively fabric from Schumacher.


A butterfly garden tea towel


A butterfly house or seeds for a butterfly wildflower garden


Antique butterfly domes


Decoupage artist John Derian (whose work I just love) has a whole section on his website under themes for butterflies.  And don’t forget the butterfly clutch to finish the look!

Cheers! Holly and Brooke
