Welcome to Keira's ladybug inspired birthday party! I created this party with lots of love, sweat, and sleepless nights for the littlest love of my life:). I was so happy with how it all came together!
After searching several blogs for ideas I came up with the ladybug theme. One of Keira's favorite books is a counting ladybug book so I thought it would be perfect and I loved the pink and green combination of colors (as these are the same colors of her bedroom!) versus the traditional black and red ladybug.
Girly, fun, and whimsical!
Etsy.com! You can find so much there! I started planning my party months in advance to give myself enough time to search for unique finds and also to use store coupons and take advantage of sales and seasonal products. Hobby Lobby, Dollar Store, Michaels, and Joanns are also great places to find things!
I loved the pink daisy door wreath (found an easy tutorial on a blog) and the green buckets filled with flowers & a ladybug coming up the driveway of our house. I also had fun putting together the party favors (for the boys - bug catchers (Michaels) filled with a ladybug magnifying glass (Michaels), wind-up ladybug toy (Michaels), gummy ladybugs (Dollar Store) and for the girls - green & pink tin buckets (Target) filled with a bottle cap ladybug necklace (etsy), ladybug compact mirror (Bath & Body), ladybug stickers (Michaels), ladybug water bottle and bag (both at Joanns). I also loved how the ribbon topiaries turned out - they were time consuming but so worth it!:)
Find a picture you love as an inspiration to start from then add your own personal touches from there. Once I had my theme I searched images on the internet and different blogs. So many blogs give tutorials for fun & cute projects that I used throughout the party!
