Ladybug Party Refreshments
Ladybug Party Refreshments
It only takes a bit of imagination to add a little ladybug flair to your guest's favorite foods. Serve "ladybug sandwiches" by topping bread cut in rounded shapes with a thin layer of peanut butter covered with red strawberry or raspberry jam. Top with raisins for "spots." You can also use a melon baller to scoop watermelon and add raisin "spots," or cut apples in half to resemble ladybugs and adorn with chocolate chips.

To make the beverages a little more fun, pour red soft drinks (tropical punch, pink lemonade or strawberry soda) from clean plastic watering cans. You can even serve ice cubes containing candy bugs. Simply add them to the tray before freezing. Another deliciously disgusting treat your guests will love is edible "dirt." Mix cream cheese with chocolate pudding and layer with crumbled Oreos or graham crackers. Decorate with plastic flowers and gummy worms!

If you're baking your own cake use a round cake pan (you can even find them in ladybug shapes) and ice with red frosting. Garnish with black gumdrops for spots, green gumdrop eyes and black licorice antennae. You can also make cupcakes in a similar manner, frosted red with chocolate chip spots. Serve in green cupcake liners trimmed to resemble a jagged leaf.

After the Ladybug Party

After the party you'll want to send your guests home with goody bags. Picnic or Easter baskets are excellent containers, or decorate red paper bags with black spots. Fill with gumdrops, jelly beans, licorice and strips of candy dots as well as little ladybug gifts such as wind-up or plush toys, pencil toppers, pinwheels and cute bug stickers. If you'd like to add gifts that are educational as well as entertaining, add magnifying glasses with bug-identifying books or small flowerpots and packets of seeds.

Be sure to take plenty of pictures of your loveliness of ladybugs to send along with personalized ladybug thank you notes!
