About a week ago I showed you these cute polka-dot plates and ladybug magnifying glasses that I’ve bought as the beginnings of a ladybug themed party. I’m planning on a ladybug theme for my youngest daughter’s next birthday (which isn’t until next January… yes, I know that’s a bit ridiculous!).
I thought I’d show you a few of the other ideas I’ve been gathering with the ladybug theme in mind. I’m planning on using this theme for a birthday, but I’ve seen the ladybug theme also work beautifully for a baby shower (especially perfect if the baby’s gender is unknown).

When planning a party, I love to start with a strong color scheme (two or three main colors). Then decisions on invitations, decorations and food can all be made with the color scheme in mind. I considered using a bit more girly colors (pink, purple, yellow), but of course it would be more difficult to find ladybug items in those colors. Also, there is something just so clean and classic about red and black.
I have a really exciting post planned for next week that has something to do with the adorable invitations and stickers at the top of this post, so be sure to check back in on Monday!
