I had lots of fun planning this ladybug baby shower for my sister-in-law. The nursery was being decorated with a ladybug theme so it only seemed natural to keep the theme through the baby shower.
The centerpiece for the gift table and first activity was a ladybug diaper cake with paper “spots” for guests to write words of encouragement on (similar to the well wishes and advice tree). Black paper circles and a metallic pen would be great too!
Another classic game with a ladybug twist was the “don’t say baby” game. I attached adhesive ladybugs (mine were from orientaltrading.com) to clothespins. Upon entering each guest was explained the rules of the game. Grab a clothespin and attach it to your clothing. Don’t say baby, cute or ladybug. If anyone catches you saying one of those words you lose your pin. Last one with a pin is the winner! This is a great ice breaker game that goes throughout the entire shower.
Red M&Ms and a black food writer made for adorable ladybug cupcake toppers!
I had so much fun making so many cute ladybug foods! The adorable ladybug labels are a retired design from Forever Your Prints.
Ladybugs are said to be a symbol of luck. The more spots they have, the luckier they are. So of course I wanted to spread the luck around! Favors were bags of lucky spots (aka: black chocolate candies.)
