Pretty Lil’ Ladybug Party

For my daughter’s 6th birthday party we choose to have a Pretty Lil’ Ladybug Party as the theme this year.  Well, Lalaloopsy’s were discussed but Ladybugs would be easier for me to decorate.  Sorry honey, it really is all about Mom and her blog…teehee.  Maybe the button-eyed dolls net year.

 Her birthday was in the beginning of November and I’m only know blogging it.  Only 2 months behind.  I probably won’t even scrapbook the event until she’s in high school….Yikes!Our ladybug theme and decorations included invitations, a party banner, pom poms, pinwheels, cupcake toppers, cake pops and ladybug party favors.

 

Ladybug Banner

 Ladybug Banner

I made the birthday banner from circle and scallop layers cut from Cricut Art Philosophy.  The ladybugs are all cut from the Doodlecharms cartridge and I and used Birthday Cakes to cut  the font.

The banner is tied together with black gingham ribbon and I added faux stitching, black pipe cleaners and googly eyes to the ladybugs.
Tissue Pom Poms

Tissue Pom Poms

Instead of balloons this year (I think there’s a Helium storage anyways),  I decided to hang tissue pom poms.    Wow-sooooo easy!   Martha sells a variety box for around $15, I made mine for $3.
Ladybug Party Table

The table decorations included pinwheels and candy vases filled with red licorice and cake pops.  This was my first attempt at making cake pops.    Out of the whole batch, only 6 actually looked like cake pops…Bleek!.  I’ll leave it at that.  I only needed 6 anyways.
Ladybug Cupcake Toppers

However, my cupcakes did turn out.   I made simple cupcake toppers by using the same ladybug cut from Doodlecharms and stamped a pennant tag using My Pink Stamper buggy punnies sentiments.
Ladybug Invitations

My daughter helped assemble her ladybug invitations and even addressed them herself.  She added her own creative touch by drawing little ladybugs too.   So cute!

 The birthday party favors consisted of a coordinating hair barrette, little ladybugs in a jar and a burlap pencil bag that I painted with black dots and each girls name.

Ladybugs in a Jar

Aren’t these so sweet?  The ladybugs and a small leaf are hot glued on a branch, stuck it in a small glass jar and then I added some raffia clippings to the bottom.

My Pretty Lil’ Ladybug Birthday Girl!

She didn’t get a Lalaloopsy party this year but she sure made out with a lot of Lalaloopsy presents.  Maybe now that I own a Silhouette, I’ll think about a Lalaloopsy party next year.
