  • Ladybugs You Can Eat!

    Desserts are very popular with the ladybug theme. We love these fun cake pops here that are decorated to look like little ladybugs. The way they are displayed in the container make it easy for party guests to grab one and enjoy as they mingle with the other guests.

    Glorious Treats make this easy craft that can be an activity for the slightly older kids who will be at the party. Buying red lunch paper bags, decorate with cut outs and turn them into adorable ladybug hand puppets.

  • Create a Focal Point All About Sweets

    What makes ladybugs to special are their unique red and black polka dotted exterior. Using those two colors as the starting point, decorate your party space with everything red and black. This party featured here has red and black streamers and balloons displayed behind the sweet treats to create a focal point of the room
