It dawned on me back in May that a themed birthday party is the thing to do for kids. Well, I asked Sophie what kind of birthday party she wanted and after a few weeks of her saying she wanted a chocolate party she finally blurted out ladybug so I took it and ran with it.
Ladybug Invitation - personal information removed of course.
Thanks to The TomKat Studio Ladybug Invitation post for the inspiration!
Hand Print Ladybug Treat Bags
A little personal touch with Sophie's hand print. Rubber stamps made simple work of the "Thank You!" and names printed on the bags.
Ladybug Cake Pops
These were a big hit. Click the title to link to the directions on how to make these cuties.
The Bug Cake
In my opinion, a birthday party just isn't a party without a cake. Meet the dirt cake with M&M bugs and one big chubby ladybug cake pop. PS. Sour cream is my secret to a moist cake.
Ritz crackers, herb and garlic cream cheese, cherry tomatoes and black olives. Voila! These got soggy pretty quick. I think a sturdier cracker would be better.
Red balloons and streamers tied it all off. And the little birthday girl was a happy party goer indeed.
Come back on Thursday if you want to see what's underneath this flowery wrapping paper.
Hint: A handyman Dad and an artsy fartsy Mom created it!
