Ladybug 2nd Birthday Party

It's a ladybug party!!!  One of my mommy squaders, Keri, threw her daughter an adorable ladybug party at their home.  There were so many unique touches that made the party really special!

For starters, here's Keri sorting through 1,500 REAL LIVE ladybugs to fill little ladybug cups that were put on each of the tables.  The kids had so much fun letting them crawl all over their hands.  Plus, who knew ladybugs were so good for your yard?

Floral Centerpieces, ladybug cups, and red and black licorice on all the tables.

The happy birthday girl, Marina!

Super cute Birthday Banner.  Printables by Dimpleprints.  Same gal that did my Pancakes and Pajamas Invitations!

Goodie Bags including handmade ladybug antenna, Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies, Chocolate-Chocolate Chip cookies from The Capital Baker,

and these adorable  chocolate ladybug pops.

The food!  Yum!

Buffet Highlights:
The Spiked "Ladybug Juice" was a concoction of: 1L Bacardi light rum, triple sec, 1 gallon hawaiian punch, 1/2 gallon orange juice, 1/2 gallon pineapple juice and slices of oranges and pineapple.  So delish!

Buffalo Chicken Dip:
1 whole cooked chicken
12oz btl of Franks Buffalo Hot Sauce
4oz feta cheese crumbles
4oz blue cheese crumbles
1/4lb Low Fat cream cheese at room temp.

3. Combine the bite size chicken pieces, sauce mix and feta and blue cheeses into large, oven-safe bowl. mix well.
4. You can either refrigerate for later or next day use or,
5. Sprinkle finely shredded cheddar cheese over top of dip and cook in over for 30minutes at 325 F.
Enjoy with celery, or chips!
