{Real Party} Adorable Bees, Beetles and Bugs Themed Birthday Party

Magda had contacted me after I posted pictures of Annabelle and Madeleine's Hello Kitty Party. She wanted to know how I had made the popcorn cones. I sent her instructions and she recently sent me pictures from the adorable party she styled for her daughter Skye's birthday. The birthday girl really likes bugs, all sorts really, but bees and beetles the best. Magda wanted to go with that theme, but not have it be in the standard yellow/black and red/black colors.

Magda found polka dotted paper in light blue and chocolate brown which she used for the invitations and the popcorn cones. She found all the bits and pieces, like pots and buckets at various $2 shops.

Magda designed the adorable cake herself. She made the fondant lady beetles, bees and flowers a week or so in advance so they would set. She bought the edible paper for the cake from Cakes Around Town.

Magda found a chocolate mold to make the lady beetles from Inspired by Chocolate. The cupcake bouquet was made by adding a few left over fondant bugs. What a cute idea!

Such a lovely party!

{Real Party} Hello Kitty Themed Birthday Party

We decided to have a joint birthday party for Annabelle and Madeleine this year since their birthdays are three weeks apart. When I asked Annabelle what kind of party she wanted, she quickly replied that she would like a Hello Kitty party. When I started looking for ideas, I instantly fell in love with these Hello Kitty shirts from Modern Frills. They became the inspiration for designing the party decor.

I made the invitation using a digital file that Audree from DecorArtist created by making a similar pattern from Heather Bailey's Pop Garden Tiled Primrose fabric which was used in the shirts. I tried to incorporate the design throughout the decor pulling the orange, yellow, green and pink as the colors for the party.

Hello Kitty crayons I made from broken crayons.
