Girl 1 wants a ladybug theme. Again. For the fourth (or is it fifth?) time. She absolutely loves ladybugs. It's weird. And kind of creepy. But, she does. They're cute, but really? Four times? And for the 10th birthday? But, alas - it is her birthday not mine, so we're doing it. We are combining ladybug theme with sweet shoppe theme. How do you do that, you ask? I don't freakin' know.
Here's what I have so far that I love. What will actually make it to the party - it's anybody's guess.
|These are the super cute invitations I bought today that are kind of lady-bugish? (That's all I really have so far besides grandiose ideas.)|
|I know. It's a long shot. Mine will probably look like murder balls, but one can hope, right?|
|From amandaparkerandfamily.blogspot.com. I've made these before and they are fairly easy, so I figure I'm good with this one. I'm going to do red with black sprinkles.|
|From catchmyparty.com. This is my sweet shoppe idea. I want to put some red and black candies in clear jars? How hard can that be? Except, of course, black licorice. Because it tastes like crap?|
|This is way above my level. What's my level? Gluing...paper...to paper.|
And, games. I have thought of two games. Don't laugh. It took me a long time to think of two. First game: Guess how many red and black M&M's are in the jar. Second game: Scramble up a bunch of candy names and have the girls unscramble them. If you guys have some great games for 10 year old girls related to ladybugs or candy (because I know that's really common) - please send them my way!
Wish me luck this weekend friends. And if my creation is not complete crap maybe I'll post it. Cheers!
