Lil' Ladybug Baby Shower and Birthday Party Decorations and Ideas
One question that often comes up when discussing the history of Ladybugs, is how they got their name. Well, in the middle ages farmers were having great difficulty controlling the pests that kept plaguing their crops, mainly aphids and other such plant-chewing critters. In an attempt to fix this problem, they resorted to praying to the virgin mother Mary to help them with this terrible problem. Miraculously, shortly thereafter, their prayers were seemingly answered with the arrival of these new little beetles. From then on, these bugs became known as "Beetles of Our Lady". Over time, this name has morphed into Lady Beetle, Ladybug Beetle, and finally "Ladybug". So as you can see, throughout history, Ladybugs have been viewed as a gift from above! So why not have a Lil Lady Bug themed party in celebration of your little gift from above?
Our Lil Lady party supplies are a great choice for girls of all ages, whether it's a birthday you're celebrating, or the party of the day is a baby shower for an expectant Mother-to-be. Featuring fun colors of pink, purple, and yellow that coordinate perfectly with our solid color party supplies, it’s easy to customize your decorations for a truly professional look. Choose from streamers, balloons, cutlery, and more!
Some fun party ideas include purchasing inexpensive red flip-flops, then having the children in attendance decorate them with black dots and silk flowers. These make a great take-home party favor! Our loot bags filled with stickers, pinwheels, blowouts, candies, and more make goodies especially easy to give. Our Lil Lady Pin Game is a really fun way to pass the time and entertain your party guests. Finally, the coloring books are also a great activity, and because they're so small, the children can take them home as well.
Another great party idea...make Ladybug cupcakes! Frost them red, pipe black icing on for the head and stripe, then use mini chocolate chips for the spots and black shoestring licorice for antennae! These are so much fun to eat and you can make extra for guests to take home. Finally, serve a garden salad and peanut butter stuffed celery with mini chocolate chips as the "bugs". What fun!
