Creating a Ladybug party

With Ruari's 2nd birthday quickly approaching, I am well into the chaotic party planning. I've made lists (and sub lists) and know exactly what needs to be done before the big day. Now I am throwing myself into the actual act of getting things done. First on the list has been to come up with the PERFECT invitation. Now granted I have seen a few cute ones on the Internet I was hell bent on making them myself. So I did a search for some ideas and found a few that I took ideas from. I can not claim this as my own design, however I did make them myself with a few customizations.

I have also been working on some of the decorations. Little hand painted ladybugs. These little cuties were made out of styrofoam balls, paint, googly eye, and pipe cleaner. Simple as that. HOWEVER simple in theory doesn't always mean simple in practice. I spent 2 hours and only finished 6. I still have about a dozen to go. The idea is to use them to sit on the tables, though that may not be the final use for them. Not too shabby for items made solely from items found at my local Dollar Store, eh? I still have a ton to do and create and I'll post more as I get it done. For now check out the photos of the invites and decorations:
