Outside of the house, let your guests know they're at the right place by drawing a trail of ladybugs, leaves and flowers with sidewalk chalk. Line the walkway with pinwheels and artificial sunflowers, and hang a banner over the door declaring, "Ladybugs welcome!"

When choosing balloons and streamers, red, orange, pink and black are the colors of the day. Accent with a little bit of green to evoke the colors of nature. At the serving table, try a leafy green tablecloth under red and black plates, cups, and napkins. For the centerpiece, use plush or ceramic ladybugs to weigh down helium-filled mylar balloons.

As an alternative you can usually find tableware with ladybug themed designs at craft and dollar stores, as well as other knick-knacks for the party. Don't be afraid if they don't match, as that's just part of the charm.

Your guests will probably be on the younger side so you'll want to prepare plenty of games and activities to keep them busy throughout the party. Variations of popular games include "Pin the Ladybug on the Flower" and "Musical Spots." For the latter, prepare black "spots" from cardboard or poster board on ahead of time. Make sure they are big enough for one girl at a time to stand on and play the game just like musical chairs.

A similar game is to have a "Jitterbug Contest." Play a fun dance tune and ask them to dance along. When the music stops, anyone still moving is eliminated. The last one remaining wins a prize. If your guests are very young, you may not even need to make it a competition, they will be more than entertained simply dancing!

Whether the party is indoors or outside your guests are sure to enjoy a ladybug hunt. Hide ladybug toys (plastic, plush, even bean bags) around the area beforehand. Give your guests baskets and see how many hidden bugs they can find. Award a prize to the girl who finds the most and let them all take the ladybugs they found home.

Another classic game is guessing how many "ladybugs" are in a jar. Fill a medium sized glass container with red and black jellybeans, gum drops or licorice whips. The partygoer who guesses the closest without going over gets to take the whole jar home... Unless she decides to share!

Bring out the creativity in your little ladybugs with an art project or two! Have them decorate plastic or terra cotta flowerpots with non-toxic paints, or picture frames with paints and plastic and ceramic beads in ladybug colors. Both of these make nice gifts for your guests to take home to their parents.

Your guests will also enjoy designing their own ladybug T-shirts. Buy more than enough oversized white, pink or light blue shirts to go around and let their imaginations run wild drawing ladybug scenes with fabric marker, paints and glitter. These are wonderful souvenirs that the girls will undoubtedly want to wear long after the party is over.
