Planning a Ladybug Party? Try these adorable ideas that we used for Miss Muffin’s first birthday. The kids will love them, and you will be the best party planner ever. We made chicken salad the night before and the yummy ladybug crackers about an hour before the party. There’s plenty of chicken salad left over from my recipe below to make regular sandwiches for the adults and for you to make sandwich later after an exhausting day. Here’s what you will need:
- Ritz crackers
- Grape tomatoes
- small black olives
- chicken salad or cream cheese
Spread cream cheese or chicken salad on each Ritz cracker. Place 2 slices of the cherry tomatoes face down to form the wings. Place a tooth pick through the olive and stick through the chicken salad to form the head.
The bug mobile was a bug hit. No, the last bug is not a a typo. It was truly buggy. We transformed the yellow school bus with ladybug wings from a Halloween costume and eye lashes that were made for Volkswagen. As you can see, the kids couldn’t wait to take a ride.
We had this adorable cake made, and it was a perfect center piece for the food table. We added ladybug balloons, red and black table clothes and red and black paper products from the dollar store. Use your imagination, the possibilities are endless.
