Live Butterfly Releases –
Whether it’s a bride wanting something different for her special day, or a family honoring their beloved with a symbolic farewell, butterfly releases are always magical. Our live butterflies go through their life cycles in a climate-controlled environment, but are only available May through August, as the outside temperature.has to be within a certain steady range for the butterflies to be active and fly away upon release. Suitable for any occasion, they are sure to create special memories. Butterflies to be released will be hand-delivered on the day of the event in a keepsake box with a demonstration of how to ensure a successful release. Delivery is included in the prices for events that are located within 50 miles of Richmond, VA. Delivery to other locations will be always open to discussion.
Current butterflies in use: Not in Season until May, 2019
There are a few tricks of the trade that ensure they are extremely active for the “show” part of the release. We will provide sugar water to the butterflies just before the event and make sure they are warmed up with sunlight . Like a piece of art, releasing live butterflies is a powerful form of expression, and, it's good for the soul!

We only use butterfly specimens and wings that are in excellent condition. They have been imported into the U.S. with special permits on file with the U.S. Department of WIldlife and the U.S. Customs, in conjunction with Peruvian goverment specifics on exporting farm-raised butterflies. We do not sell any art or jewelry made with any endangered species.
