Cute as a Button party theme supplies

I’ve always loved the idea of a “Cute as a button” party theme for a sweet 1st birthday or perhaps a baby shower! It’s a great chance to decorate in pastels and incorporate colourful and sweet buttons.

Obviously being such a unique theme it is hard to find much partyware to exactly suit this theme – which is why printable collections are SO fantastic as you can use them for everything from cupcake wrappers and toppers to thank you tags all to match this specific theme.

Besides some button finds, I’ve also included some general pastel partyware as well as some partyware to match a slightly shabby chic look which would also work for this theme.
