Ladybug Birthday Party Invitations

I love the deep red and bold black color scheme that reflects the true colors of ladybugs.

 Of course the ladybug birthday party invitations set the theme for the pool party and the color scheme.

Red and black is repeated in the paper goods, decorations and pool floats.

I bought these cute invites from Amazon for less than $4 for 8 of them.

Aren't these plates just fun and cute?! The colors really are vibrant and while, I often don't rave about the paper goods - this time they really do help make the party.

I used red and white checkered round umbrella tablecloths for the party tables.

There is a whole package deal you can get from Amazon with matching plates, cups, napkins, silverware, invites, ribbon and balloons.

Ladybug Party Ideas for Decorations

Guests are greeted with a ladybug flag - I found this a year ago at CVS and bought two of them - an extra one to hang on the pool gate.

Here's another garden flag by Carson that's just as cute.

Flowers from our garden are arranged in simple mason jars and put on the party tables.

Zinnias and blossoms from our yellow butterfly plant not only look pretty but smell wonderful.

I use not paper - but nylon hanging lanterns because they now cost just about the same price and it doesn't matter if it starts to drizzle or if it's really humid outside. 

Plus I can reuse these red ones for our Fourth of July party.  The best store with the best prices is Paper Lantern Store.  You can find nylon hanging lanterns here:

10" red nylon lanterns

Hang them from your umbrella ribs and embellish with round black stickers and curling black ribbon. You'll use the round black stickers for a cute craft too.

I used black netting ribbon to tie the lanterns onto the umbrella ribs.

Place your party bags around the umbrella pole and add a couple of ladybugs for your party table decorations.

Get at least two so you can use them for pool games too.

Cupcake wrappers and cupcake toppers complete the black and red color theme. I bought this cute cupcake decorating set at Pier One a year ago.

I purchased white cupcakes with vanilla frosting from Publix - they are the best cupcakes by the way. So moist and the frosting is delicious.

Sprinkle a little red sugar on the top.
