Ladybug Party

Allie's party and Niagara on the lake 244

Today was the first birthday party of one of my very favourite babies, Allie.  She has the sweetest nature, and deserved a super sweet birthday.  The theme was ladybugs, and they were everywhere!  We were greeted by a beautiful display of ribbon on the front railing and a welcoming bouquet of paper lanterns on the front gate.

The path to the backyard was lined with cute ladybug pinwheels.

The backyard was full of treats!  There was a craft set up on the deck, to decorate your own ladybug fairy wand, with sparkly pom-poms, googly eyes, and glitter glue!  There’s one of my little ladybugs hard at work.

There was also a little ladybug swimming pool and sprinkler set up for some water fun.

There was also a beautiful handmade game of pin the lady bug on the leaf, and each child’s name had been made into a cute little ladybug.

There were lots of other little ladybug touches everywhere.  The backyard swing had inflatable ladybugs on it, the tree had a ladybug windsock blowing in the breeze, and there was a cozy quiet spot set up for little loungers.  The attention to detail was amazing and made the party so special!

After games it was time for a lovely lunch and an amazing dessert table!  The kids had their own picnic table and sweet ladybug picnic containers complete with fork and spoon, for everyone to take home after.

There were ladybugs all over the food table, stuffed ones as weights on the paper plates and napkins, ladybug magnets on metal containers, and handmade matching ladybug table cloths.

Of course my favourite was the incredible dessert table!

There were beautiful homemade cupcakes made by the birthday girls mom –Heather.  They were so delicious!  All three designs were so beautiful.  One design was different flowers in butter cream icing –pansies, carnations, and daisy-like  blossoms with gumdrop centres.

She also made amazing sunflowers, with Oreo and mini-Oreo centres, and beautiful little ladybugs.

Heather also made amazing pink ladybugs.  Their cute little bodies were made from marshmallow cookies, covered in pink icing.  I love the heart sprinkle eyes.

There was also ladybug sugar cookies, in pink and red, with chocolate chip or jube-jube polka dots.

There was also flowerpot desserts.  Heather made “dirt” pudding with chocolate pudding and cookie crumbs, put them in a clean plastic flower pots, added candy rocks, and sugar cookie flower lollipops.  They were adorable!

And the fun didn’t end when the party did, because Heather had made beautiful loot bags for all the kids.  My girls couldn’t wait to open them, they were full of lady bug treasures!
