Decide on the important details for the ladybug party. The day, time, and location are crucial. An outdoor party won't be much fun in the winter, and a party for toddlers won't work if it's thrown during the guest of honor's nap time.
Use red and black to carry the ladybug theme throughout the entire party. A red tablecloth with black plates, cups and napkins is a possible backdrop for a ladybug cake and cupcakes. Use red and black balloons to adorn corners of the table, as well as the guest of honor's chair, door frames and room corners. Make tissue paper balls of varying sizes in red and black to hang from the ceiling. Another option is to purchase printed ladybug decorations from your local party store.
Strawberries and watermelon chunks dotted with raisins or chocolate chips are easy to prepare and will resemble ladybugs. Use crackers, cream cheese, cherry tomato halves, olives and chives to create healthy ladybug appetizers. Your cake, cupcake and cookie choices are almost endless. You can make a ladybug cake yourself or order one from a local bakery.
Pin the spot on the ladybug is a red-and-black twist on the classic party game. Older toddlers and kids will love musical spots, which is easier to set up than musical chairs. You can find a plethora of ladybug stickers, coloring sheets and trinkets for purchase online or in party stores to stuff into your red and black spotted favor bags. Red and black chocolate candies could also work as party favors.
