Throw a ladybird party

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites


Whether you call them ladybirds or ladybugs, your little peeps will love you for hosting a fun-themed black and red spotted party.

Party themes don’t have to be hard. Take inspiration from our ladybird decorations and make your next party your best ever.


Use a craft punch to cut out circles to represent ladybird spots. Sprinkle these, like confetti, over the sweets table. You could also glue or stitch some to a length of string to make a paper garland.


Buy cheap ladybird pegs from a dollar store and attach them to sweet jars. You can use them to hold food labels or decorations.


A party is not complete without the cake, right? Make a cute ladybird cake using red and black fondant. To make a half sphere cake you can use a stainless steel bowl to bake in, or a hemisphere baking tin. Here are some instructions on how to do that.


Kids love cake pops, so whip some up and decorate them with ‘grass’ and ladybirds. You can get a quick-to-make cake pop recipe here; then cover with melted green candy melts and green 100s and 1000s (or sprinkles). Make your ladybirds out of red and black gumpaste.


Such cute – and healthy – party food snacks. Slice some black olives, cut a wedge out of several cherry tomatoes and insert two slices of olive into the cut tomato to form wings. Use a couple of dots of cream cheese for the eyes and for sticking the ‘head’ to the ladybird body. Place each ladybird onto a slice of cucumber.


Make cute ladybird sandwiches with coloured luncheon sausage. You can colour your slices with food colouring or beetroot juice. Easy as.


Use large leaves as placemats to keep in theme. Dot small toy ladybirds around the table for decoration.

After a quick costume? Carolina from 30 Minute Crafts whipped up this very cool creation in just 5 minutes! How’s that for clever creativity? All you need to do is get your hands on some large black-spotted red felt. See how Carolina made the costume here.


Have some fun with face paint and lipstick and paint ladybirds on the partygoers’ lips and faces. They will love it!
