Ladybug party

>> Sunday, September 7, 2008

Ladybugs! Lots and lots of ladybugs! We had my daughter's fourth birthday party this weekend. Whoo...I could really use some time off. Funny how only two hours can require so much prep and be so tiring, but also so worth it. First off here is a picture of the cake.




A few years ago I picked up a magazine with different birthday themes with cakes and so this is a replica of the ladybug cake from the magazine. Cute, no?
We made ladybugs for all over the house and played 'pin the spot on the ladybug'. For the goody bags I used the tutorial from here and made these goody bags.


The best part? Besides the fact that they only took a little over an hour to make, and that they were ladybugs, the best part was the fact that all the ladybugs had four dots (fourth birthday).



One last thing to share. I ordered blank puzzles from bare books and as a craft at the party the kids colored and essentially created their own puzzles. Big hit!

Lots of food eaten, lots of running around and playing, and lots of ladybugs.

That is a totaly adorable cake! I love the theme, and I can't believe those lady bugs had four dots each! It was meant to be.
