Almost as popular as a fairy tea party, almost every little girl will desire a cute as a bug ladybug party. This is such a sweet little theme and easy to carry out. You want to get all the right elements in the right red, black, and polka dot colors and motif and voila—the theme is set before your very eyes! If you find yourself faced with throwing a ladybug party there are some fabulous ideas out there, mainly from other parents who have done the same thing.
It’s not so much about the food that you serve at this type of party so much as the way in which you pull the theme together. If you insert all of the right themed components from start to finish then the theme will be flawless. You just have to think through the details in advance and then carry them out to make the venue shine. I love the cues that these parents used and I found some great tools out there as well. May your little ladybug enjoy a day that’s all about her!
Here’s a couple neat ladybug party ideas to get your creative juices going:
Bee In our Bonnet does such a phenomenal job with their ladybug invitations that it’s hard not to fall in love with them right away! What I loved about this is that it was so simple and yet so effective. Let’s face it that the invitations set the tone for the party and theme itself. So imagine the guests’ delight when they get this cute little ladybug adorned invite that opens up to feature all of the party information. So easy to put together and yet so crafty and I have to offer big props for such a cute idea!
Everything Ladybug shows that the table and the decorations need not be elaborate or crazy to be absolutely adorable. I love the way that they set the food table and yet the reality is that it’s a simple polka dot table runner as the basis. I think that incorporating the ladybug flags and the red, black and polka dot balloons works well. When you see all of the right colors and decorations like this in one spot then you really make a great impact. Pulling all of the themed decorations together at the food table made this the centerpiece of the party without a doubt. It didn’t matter what sort of food they were serving as the decorations sang!
Glorious Treats: Every kid’s party needs the most important part of the party to tie directly into the theme—that’s right, the cake! Since cupcakes are the hottest new sweet treat I think they did a great job of carrying out the theme here. Not only that but they took the theme and ran with it incorporating the right colors and polka dots into ladybug themed cookies, lollipops, and even a cake topper. I love that even the M&M’s and other candies are red and white. The red tulips really pull everything together and make for a smooth and cohesive look and feel that any ladybug lover would envy.
The Baeza Blog knows like any good parent that the favors are the end note and therefore one that you want to make stand out. When you have the right container that stands on its own then it doesn’t really matter what goodies you put inside as the kids (and parents alike) will be so mesmerized. The red and white polka dot goodie boxes here are perfect for holding stickers, candy, or even little ladybug themed items. The kids will adore taking home their very own ladybug themed box and it ends things on a very sweet note!
So if you want to make everything perfect for that little ladybug in your life as I did, take some hints from others who have done this before you. With these ideas and a bit of creativity of your own, you can pull together a really fantastic party and the ladybug theme will ring strong the whole day through.
