Lady Bug Party

I had the great pleasure of working with my friend, and fellow business partner {!} Susan, on her daughter's 4th birthday party invitations and decorations! She had been dreaming up a Lady Bug theme since before her daughter, Lanie, turned 3, so off I went with some cute red, black and pool, polka dot designs! Take a peek at the gorgeous party ...
Isn't little Lanie adorable! I love the sweet treats table, above, with a back drop of red and black streamers, a hand made banner, polka dots galore and an amazing assortment of tasty lady bug sweets!
To set the tone for the party, Susan created these FANTASTIC, interactive party invitations! She painted small, round, paper mache containers with red and black polka dots. Then, put green "grass" {or shredded paper} inside and added some wooden ladybugs. Then, she put a Printable 2.5" Round Party Invitation inside the container and secured it closed with natural twine. To top it all off, mini magnifying glasses were tied to the top for an interactive invitation! Each guest could use the magnifying glass to read the fine print of the invite and search for lady bugs inside! So fun!
I just LOVE how this green grass runner looks on the red striped table cloth! Susan used a printable 8x10 sign as a centerpiece against a pretty flower arrangement.

The sweets table's focal point was the adorable two-tiered red and black polka dot cake. Simple and stunning. How cute are the green "grass" cake pops with a fondant flower and lady bug atop of each? Each cake pop was completed with a matching printable "mini flag".
 The drink station was spruced up with water bottle and juice box wraps. I love the red punch in the glass drink dispenser. Everything matches so perfectly!
Like I said before, this was an awesome sweets table! Aren't these lady bug oreo pops perfection? And that little lady bug prop with lollipops sticking out! So cute.

Each "little lady" received a custom made lady bug hair clip and each "little bug" got their very own set of lady bug antenna!

 Susan thought of everything, down to lady bug themed games. There was a Lady Bug Toss, a Lady Bug Bean Search, a tattoo station and plenty of lady bug beach balls to play with!
 Fun and festive printable pennant banners were displayed at the entrance and gift table.

Each little guest received a small, and adorable, carton filled with lady bug themed goodies!

This party was a little kids dream! So much to do and so many goodies to eat!

I hope you were inspired by this lovely event! My family had the pleasure of attending this party and we left feeling very spoiled!

 Aside from the printable designs that help to spruce up this party, Susan mentioned, on her blog, that she just began to stockpile anything red, black or lady bug themed when she'd see them in the clearance sections at stores! The kids LOVED getting their own red bug net!
 How fun to jump around the trampoline with little lady bug beach balls at your feet! I know Navy couldn't get enough of it!

 Even the older "kids" joined in the fun of wearing their lady bug antenna!

 Many of the appetizers had a lady bug theme as well. Aren't these lady bug look-alike crackers with tomatoes and olives adorable!

 Great job, Susan, on creating a fantastic Lady Bug Party for your adorable little Lanie-Bug!
