Ladybug Birthday Party

I think I can say that the Princess's Ladybug party was a success. We had around 20 people attend, mostly kids between the ages of 6 and 12. While it was a lot of work, it was worth it to see the kids having so much fun. So here are some pics:

I had much grander plans for this cake; but I didn't realize til mid-afternoon when I went to frost it, that I was out of food coloring! So hubby brought some home, and I threw this together in about 15 minutes. So, considering that, I was pretty happy with it;)

I had to laugh at this picture; when we started opening the presents, the kids were all several feet away. But with every gift, they moved closer and closer. It was a little hard to get pictures of the Princess at that point, LOL;) It was fun to watch them get excited about someone else opening presents.

This was my BEST idea for the party. Instead of doing a cake walk, I did a walk in the garden. I picked up party favors from the Dollar store that they could pick out when they landed on the flower/insect called. It was so great- they must have walked around that circle atleast 100 times! Not a one wanted to stop at the end, they absolutely loved it. And the prizes they won went into a take home bag. They all seemed pretty happy with that.

The Princess with some Ladybug friends. There are antennaes on their hats, you just can't see them in this picture. And, in case she looks familiar, that's Mrs.Darling's Tink behind the Princess. Funny girl; she snuck into every picture she could:)

Our gift to the Princess was this ladybug tea set. I bought it online and was a little nervous of whether it would be as nice as advertised; it is absolutely adorable. And the basket is perfect for holding it all. Yes, I am as enthralled as she is with it. We're both going to have fun with this:).

The kids had fun at the party. I see Peter hogging the limelight there while the Princess is trying to open her gift! And yes, Tink does try to get in every picture. Goodness, you'd think my kids were raised by wolves!

The cake looks great!

I don't know how you could have made the cake any better. What a wonderful idea for a game instead of a cake walk. That no one is pushing someone else off a chair. It looks like the Princess had a good time. And I love that tea set!
