I stumbled across these adorable nylon ladybugs recently and thought they’d be the perfect starting point for a Modern Ladybug party theme!

Ladybugs are always cute for kids birthday parties and “LovebugValentine’s Day parties, but this theme can even translate beautifully for a girlie baby shower or bridal shower.

For adult-friendly parties, just make sure to focus on decorative elements that are chic & stylish, as opposed to overly “cutesie”; for example – the grass & gerbera flower arrangements pictured below, contemporary polka dot partyware, and a cool red signature drink like a Raspberry Collins or Watermelon Mojito.

Whatever your particular occasion may be – from a 1st birthday to a bridal shower – here’s some inspiration to get you started…

Pictured above:
Embellish rolled black napkins with “napkin ring” made from a strip of cardstock and a foam ladybug topper.
Decorate solid red paper cups with round black stickers. Use these as drink cups for kids, or as cute containers for serving up mini-sized desserts or salads/pastas.
More tableware & decor finds: Modern Ladybug Dinner Plates; Just Dots Black & White Beverage Napkins and 7″ Dessert Plates; Red Utensils; 27″ Foil Balloon, Ladybug Cookies (for party favors); Ladybug Frame (super cute for displaying pics of the guest of honor), and Ladybug Cupcake Toppers.

Centerpieces:
For floral-based centerpieces that match this theme, try a combo of gerbera daisies, wheat grass or artificial grass mats, and ladybug accents, such as the foam ladybugs mentioned above, which you could attach to floral wire to create “picks” for the arrangements. {see image resources below}

Party Favor Ideas:
Modern Ladybug Soaps, another style of Ladybug Cookies, or red & black candies packaged in Mini Acrylic Favor Boxes and tied up with a polka dot ribbon. These adorable Ladybug Gift Tags from Etsy would be a cute addition to any of them!

In lieu of ladybug cupcake toppers, you could also whip up some cupcakes that look like ladybugs… like this version brightideas.com.
