Ladybug Birthday Party Ideas

There are probably thousands of ideas online on how to have a ladybug birthday party, so I only like to post the really fantastic ideas. I came across LifesEventful Blog which is a blog by a wedding planner, who created a fabulous ladybug birthday party for her daughter's first birthday. You can view all of the different images to get some wonderful ideas! I have made the tissue paper pompoms before and they are so cheap and easy to make but look fantastic.
I also recently made these adorable Ladybug Invitations. Idea courtesy of the theTinCats Blog. These easy ladybug invitations only took me about five minutes to make after I gathered all of my supplies. Using a paper punch was much easier, instead of making a circle with a marker or paint.

For Ladybug Birthday favors LadyBug Shop offers several cheap ladybug favors for $5 or less. The Ladybug Lip Gloss is my favorite! All of the little girls that come into the store cannot leave without a ladybug lip gloss. Finish off the accessories with great ladybug party supplies including red ladybug paper plates and napkins to have a great Ladybug Birthday Party. Have great birthday party ideas? Or found a blog or website that features great ladybug birthday party ideas? Email them to us so we can pass it along.

Happy Spring Break!

If like my son your children are on spring break by Monday your kids will be bored stiff after the excitement of Easter has passed and the candy is eaten. So be prepared with some ladybug crafts! Some of the easiest crafts you can do is with a rock from your garden. Paint the rock the color of your choice, I prefer red, of course, use a sharpie for spots and glue on some googly eyes! Or if you want to use paper plates you can use red and black plates to make a ladybug or color your design on white plates. This is an especially great spring decoration for your refrigerator!

If you want to be a little bit more creative play dress up by making your own ladybug costume! The Bug & Bud Festival is on April 24th, and there is a $100 prize for the best ladybug costume and the best tree costume, so be creative! View a list of costume ideas on our website to get your creative juices flowing. Make a ladybug foam visor to keep the sun off your face. Make a ladybug costume from a paper bag! Or watch this video courtesy of HGTV on how to make a Ladybug or Turtle Costume. Have fun on Spring Break! And be sure to be in your fun ladybug costumes for the Bug & Bud Parade!
