Ladybug Party

Ready for a fun party?? This ladybug party was SO fun for me to do! It was my biggest party yet, with 67 people invited! It was fun to get the mail everyday and see what orders arrived! ;) I also had to travel 2 hours for this party, which turned out to be a huuuge blessing because at the last minute my family came with me and we made a beach mini-weekend out of it.

I'm kicking myself for not taking a picture of the INSIDE of the treat boxes because they were SO cute! For weeks I have been slicing the paper off of crayons, melting them and filling ladybug molds. I then grouped them together in a clear cello bag with green paper shred, ladybug crayons on top, and tied it with a cute scalloped tag. The boxes also included a bottle of ladybug bubbles, and one of Nandie's FAMOUSLY perfect cookies! Thankfully I took a picture of the cookies when I picked them up. They are big and BEAUTIFUL! I brought a small helium tank and blew up polka dot balloons to add to tables.

I am in LOVE with fabric strip banners!! Isn't it beautiful? It couldn't be easier! This would be SO cute hung above a bed in the colors of the room!

The metal cupcake stand is from my niece's wedding. I changed the edging and lining to match. It turned out super cute, and most importantly it holds a LOT of cupcakes! I also made ladybug chocolate covered oreos with molds I bought from I got the idea for ladybug pretzels from Pinterest, and they turned out super cute!

I just thought I'd show you what the red chalkboard looked like "before". Ugly huh? Lucky for me, I see this and recognize potential. It was only $6.88 at Rescued Treasures and it's HUGE! All it needed was some paint! ;)

Thanks SO much, Akers family for trusting me with your party! It was a blessing to me! :) Love you!


  1. What an adorable party! You did a great job! :)

  2. What a fun party that must have been! The treat boxes must have been amazing, but the pictures you do have of the party certainly look awesome (and delicious)! I featured your party on my "ladybug party roundup" here -

    Take care,
