I’ve been thinking of a ladybug themed party for my youngest daughter’s next birthday (I wont tell you that her birthday isn’t until January, because then you’d know how truly party obsessed I am!)
I’ve been gathering a few fun things as I find them, partly because I know that spring and summer are the prime time of year that stores will be carrying cute ladybug things. I have some ideas on invites, food, etc. and have plans for a ladybug party planning post in the future. But I recently bought a couple of extra cute things and I wanted to share them now, in case you like them too.
I found these little melamine polka-dot plates at Target several weeks ago, and at 99 cents each I grabbed them up. I knew I could use them at Christmas, 4th of July, a strawberry or cherry themed party, or for a ladybug theme. The plates are on the small side, about 5 inches across. Just large enough for a few appetizers or a dessert. The same plates were also sold in blue, yellow or green.
(Found in the kitchen/dishes area, in an aisle of seasonal/summer plastic dishware)
Then, I was at Target again this week (I’m there about 3 times a week- it’s our “I just need to get out of the house” store) and I saw these adorable ladybug magnifying glasses. They were in the dollar section at the front of the store (I can rarely leave the store without grabbing a few things from those bins!). At $1.00 each, I dug through the bin and bought 12, trying to estimate how many I’d need for a party. In the same area there were also magnifying glasses in the shapes of frogs and butterflies.
