Ladybug Garden Birthday Party

This garden themed birthday party from Jordan at Polkadot Prints is just WAY too cute… not to mention filled with tons of creative & budget-friendly details! I love the way she dressed up the milk bottles by adding her own “lids” made from patterned paper and jute string, and how the table is covered with fake grass for an decidedly outdoorsy vibe…. so clever!

The theme is carried out so well in the food here… from “worms in dirt” {gummy worms buried in cookie crumbs} to cake served in flower pots to adorable toadstool cookies & more. And see those adorable ladybugs climbing the wall? There’s a DIY on those coming soon!

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jordan…

THEME
DOWN IN THE GARDEN
“I wanted to steer away from the formal dessert table trend and give scope for a complete food table – let the savories in on the fun!

Starting with the guest of honor’s name and some cute DIY ladybird decorations, the background was a rough white wall. With the fake turf tabletop, it gave an “outdoors on the grass” kind of vibe. I used some props that were already weathered from being outdoors throughout the party, which helped play up the rustic-but-clean feel.

FOOD
Food was simple and appealing to little girls (and boys!) at the party. Not too much sugar and nothing too over the top or fancy. One of my favorite details on the food table were the drink bottles. I used miniature milk bottles I found at Bed Bath n Table and covered them with squares of paper wrap, secured with jute string. I cut a cross in the top and popped in a straw just before the food was served. A fresh take on the mini glass bottles and paper straws!

The Dragonfly and Toadstool cookies were designed by Bubble and Sweet to match the invitation perfectly. the mini burgers were also another highlight. Miniature anything is always cuter, I say!

We had ‘mud pie’ ginger kisses, chocolate crackles in pine food cones, cherry ripe cake pots, and ‘worms in dirt’ in a pile that the little guests could dig and serve into their food boats.

The take home treat was a personalized favor box with toadstool cookies inside. Cute!”
