You will want to create a garden feel for this butterfly party theme. Rent or borrow trees and plants to create this feeling or do this theme outside in your yard.
Start with the entrance of the party. Make butterflies out of thick poster board and glue onto garden stakes. Line the sidewalk with them. Tie balloons onto the mailbox. This will alert the guests as to where the party is.
Not only can you use

You can also use butterfly catchers as part of the decor. Hang them or prop them against things.
Butterfly centerpieces are a piece of cake when you start with the

Another butterfly centerpiece idea is garden cookie bouquets. Purchase flower pots. Paint to match your color scheme. Add florist foam in the pot. Bake cookies in the shape of flowers and butterflies. When they are still warm, add a long lollipop stick. Frost the cookies and arrange in the pretty pot. Use green gift basket shred to hide the florist foam.
Purchase a 3 or 4 foot roll of white paper. Paint free hand, use stickers, or use stencils to create a one of a kind garden scene. Paint a white picket fence first. Then add flowers, grass, and butterflies. Secure the paper on the wall all around the party area. Set real or fake trees and plants in front of it. Add garden fountains and garden statues to complete the look.

Give each player a small gift as they get out, this softens the blow.
