Ladybug Birthday Party

Saturday was cousin Aubrey's 2nd birthday party! It was ladybug theme and I have been anticipating this for a while now! Kinley got this amazing ladybug-like skirt for her birthday from Natalie and I have been saving it since then for THIS occasion! Of course, to dress the theme,I had to make Kinley a ladybug shirt to go with it. I screen printed the ladybug using the freezer paper method. It was my first time doing 2 colors with this method...but, for one t-shirt it was SO easy and I loved it!

Last weekend I helped Kristy with some party brainstorming and a trip to Hobby Lobby. Kristy had a fabulous vision of red and black candy favors, red and black clothes for all the guests and ladybug decor, including turning her house into a garden with oversized flowers and ladybugs everywhere! We made an adorable "Happy Birthday" banner, started on the cute antenna headbands, and I helped her design the water bottle labels, table labels, and birthday sticker labels. Kristy had all the ideas in her head and it was so fun to see them come to life on Saturday!
Kinley is really excited for the party
For Aubrey's party they requested that in lieu of gifts we bring donations for The Warm Place. They set up this cute picket fence to hold the donations. I just love this sentiment!
Fondant ladybugs on delicious grass icing cupcakes were so cute..and delicious!
We played pin the dot on the ladybug...
..and put a bow on cousin Luke...look for his western 1st birthday party post after this weekend!
