About the Party Ideas Collage Above
The collage above features items created by Glorious Treats (flickr) for a baby shower. For this special gathering, they created cupcakes, a cake, cookie favors on a stick, and brownie bites all in ladybug theme.
According to the creator, "This was a fun order to see all put together. The shower host had her whole home decorated for the shower with ladybugs and red and black décor."
The simple colors on these cute bugs are easy to reflect in your own décor. Some ideas might include:
- A red tablecloth (with black cut-out dots added here and there?) and black napkins
- Red and black streamers
- Red roses in black vases
- Big red polkadots for the walls
- Polkadot balloons in the event colors
- Red solo cups with dots drawn on them with a Sharpie pen
- Swags and table covers made from polkadot fabric (from a fabric store or online)
- Oversized flowers and leaves (cut from paper or made from colorful tissue paper)
Of course, any color combination you choose can be substituted for red and black. Did you know there are even orange "ladybird" beetles?
Garden Party Cupcake Tower by Sandra (socake)
Note that the above cupcakes are frosted with flower shapes and a cute pick has been added. You can find pre-made picks like this at party stores, or consider making your own. Being round, ladybugs are fairly easy to draw or look for printable designs online. Add your cut-out prints to toothpicks and push onto your treats!

Ladybugs all dressed in red,
strolling through the flowerbed.
If I were tiny just like you,
I'd creep among the flowers too!

If you think the décor ideas on this page are too difficult for you to create, then consider simplifying the design on a regular round cake like the one below.
Of course, your local bakery can make your sweets for you, also.
Either way, your guests will be delighted.
Have a Round Cake Pan?
This cake was made for a 2nd birthday. Anyone of any age would go crazy for this adorable design. I love the smooth finish and the simple, yet professional design!
From the decorator: "This is a "10" round cake with buttercream frosting. Decorations are fondant and gumpaste."
