Every occasion can be enhanced by the addition of live butterflies. Idlewild Butterfly Farm is experienced not only with rearing and providing butterflies to the consumer, but in various ways to integrate them into your special date.
Our butterflies are sold by the dozen. Take a look at our butterfly gallery for our selection of butterflies and pricing. Please note that butterflies are seasonally available from May through October. For your satisfaction, order your butterflies well in advance of your event date (we recommend at minimum two weeks, but welcome orders months in advance). Short notice orders may be subject to butterfly availability.
We offer several options for your butterfly release. Your base order packages your butterflies in small glassine envelopes — the next step is to decide your method of release. We offer decorative release envelopes, wire-frame mesh enclosures, and sinamay boxes (shown left – release box will be larger) that can be used to display and then release your butterflies.
Our butterfly baskets make wonderful centerpieces or event décor, and are incredibly popular as gifts for your loved ones. We fill a basket with locally grown floral arrangements from Hazelfield Farm, then enclose it with mesh tulle and fill it with butterflies! We offer a selection of sizes from petite handbaskets to large gathering baskets. Let us know your vision for your ideal basket and we will bring it to life.
Our most striking offering is the butterfly globe. This 20″ diameter globe can be used as a centerpiece, displayed on a pedestal, or even suspended! We fill it with a deluxe-size floral arrangement and a carpet of moss bedding, and the globe can accommodate dozens of butterflies. After your guests have admired the butterfly displays, they will have equal pleasure in watching the butterflies flutter into the sky.
