My darling baby girl turned two, and we gave her a ladybird party. Black and red spots were to be the theme; sadly for Immy, she got more spots than she bargained for, as she caught chicken pox from her middle brother just days before the do.
We were still determined to celebrate her reaching the grand old age of two, with a super party tea with Nanny, Grandpa and the boys.
As usual, I created a pinterest board to get some ladybird inspiration here. So many cool ideas, but first up, I had to make a ladybird dress.
The fabric was a cheap quilting cotton, and the pattern was design A from Tuttle Publishing's Happy Homemade - Sew Chic Kids.
It's always a delight making anything for the kids, not least because you barely need any fabric. I bought just 1 metre, and I had enough left to make quick and easy bunting to decorate her party.
The food was rather fun too, ladybird stylee, obviously. I know it's a lot of effort for a baby girl who won't remember the day, but we will remember, and there will be rather spotty photographs to remind us too.
I do love a theme... do you?
