Bug Party

My apologies for the lateness in posting about Miss Five's bug themed birthday party - the usual excuses apply.  The party was a great success, I think a great time was had by all.  We were blessed with a beautiful winter's day, so the kids were able to go out and burn some of their sugar fueled energy outdoors.  It was a bit of a miracle to have such a beautiful day, as the day before was incredibly cold, wet and windy!

Here are some photos of some other bug themed ideas from the party.  My sister and Miss Seven made some gorgeous table centrepieces, and the birthday girl herself made some pipe cleaner flowers for the table:

Instead of bags packed with lollies and made in China trinkets, I made up some small bucket party favours.  Into the buckets (which are reusable) I put the Bubble Bee Mix, the pencil toppers, and these gingerbread cookies that I made and iced.

Here are the buckets, ready to be handed out:

The buckets also came in handy to store the goodies from the Beehive Pintata that Miss Seven and I made (using these instructions).

Inside the pinata, we put some wrapped lollies, along with a handful of small plastic snakes.  I coundn't resist putting a couple of plastic mice in as well!

What a wonderful day it was - wish we could do it all over again!


  1. It all looks and sounds great, Kate! You put a lot of effort in and I imagine miss 5 was extremely pleased! I love the buckets with all of their homemade goodies inside, especially those delicious looking cookies :o)

  2. Thanks Christine! I really loved making the goodies for the party - wish I had time to do more!
