How to have a ladybug theme birthday party she'll love.
She is Ladybug Girl and she's up for a birthday adventure! Your little lady has been
bugging you for a Ladybug Party and here's how to show off your little love bug with
memorable ladybug party:
Setting the scene for the little ladybugs
Red tulips would make an ideal centerpiece for a springtime ladybug birthday. Wheat
grass propped with ladybug sticks. There are a myriad of ideas for table decorations.
Here is some inspiration for your ladybug party.
- Get inspired by LadyBug Girl: A favorite book of the Pre-K set is LadyBug Girl, by
Jacky Davis and David Soman. A pair of wings, a tutu, boppers, and ladybug rain
boots is all you need to transform her into Ladybug girl for the party. Ladybug
Mom can wear the affordable ladybug shoes, left (they're under ten bucks!) to
complete the metamorphosis.
- Ladybug party pail. The ladybug party pail, pictured left is an ideal place to store
the favor bags. For a festive touch, use it also as a balloon weight for a bouquet
of ladybug balloons. Or use it as a centerpiece for your table with a plant.
- Send her heart flying with pink spotted ladybugs: Ladybug Land by Insect Lore,
includes a pre-paid certificate to receive real Pink Spotted ladybug larvae by mail
so you can experience the magic of metamorphosis. Trust us, your little
entomologist will love it and it consistently gets high marks on Amazon. (Not
available in Oregon.) Time it right and you can show off to the little buggers at
the party and release them after serving the birthday cake. See Ladybug land,
- Start seeing spots. Check out our Polka Dot Party. You'll surely spot some fun
ideas. And don't forget to spot a few fun finds for yourself too. The ladybug
shoes, pictured left, would be fun for the party and you can re-create the look
on Halloween night, too.
Ladybug invitations and thank you cards
- Make your own pink ladybug invitations or put the task to an artisan: the
ladybug invitation design available on Etsy.com is as cute as a bug and can
provide inspiration. It's layered with a body outline in black, wording in a white
oval, and layered with wings cut from a bubble gum pink oval that is secured by
a brad. The wings open to reveal the invitation.
- Ladybug Invitations and party wording ideas:
- Ladybugs and gentlemen, it's a party!
- Our little love bug, Madelyn, is turning two.
- Bug out with us Saturday, August 22 at 2:00 p.m.
- Madelyn's garden: 123 main street
- RSVP: Lady Bird Johnson [your last name] at 867-5309
We hope to spot you at the party!
- Our little lady is turning 12
Ladybug Cakes and Cookies and party foods
- Ladybug cake pops. The ladybuy presents the perfect shape to make cake pops.
- Lady, make it easy on yourself: The garden ladybug cupcakes by Wilton are really
very simple to make and will surely impress the little bugs.
- Hey Cookie! Fly on over to Wilton to see the recipe for the cheerful Ladybugged
- It's pan-tastic what you can do with this pan! The great thing about the ladybug
cake pan, left, by Wilton is that it can be an elephant, too. That's something to
remember if next year's party or for another sibling is going to be a Zoo party,
Jungle Party or Safari theme party.
- Serve up some Beetle Juice: Pink lemonade with a fancy name, rim a glass a
wedge of lemon or lime and red or pink flavored sugars.
Games and activities
- Read Ladybug Girl! Boys at the party will appreciate LadyBug Girl and Bumble Bee
Boy. Another classic: The Grouchy Ladybug, by Eric Carle (author of The very
Hungry Caterpillar). Beautifully illustrated, this book will instill manners and may
alleviate any grouchy ladybugs at the party.
- See spot run... You'll start seeing spots in toys and favors when you set your
mind to it. All you need for the party is a few ladybug inspired toys, like the ball
by Crocodile Creek, pictured right. And a ladybug Pinata is an easy activity
choice, also right. Fill the pinata with red and black candies: wrapped licorice
twists and jelly bean packages, ladybug buttermints, ladybug rings and more.
And you'll find plenty of ladybug beanbags to use for a game of toss. Spot some
good favors and toys online.
