Guests enjoyed dinner and dessert while the kids hunted for bugs, jumped on the trampoline, swung in the tire swing and ran around "bugging" everyone.

Party Helpers

  • Parson's Bakery

    Cake designer

    Cake was red velvet in the inside with a delicious cream cheese frosting. Bug topper was purchased at Joann's in their dollar section.


  • Embellish


    Embellish is my own printables company. I sell on Etsy and also have a blog that I give away loads of FREE printables.

  • Two Little Bluebirds

    Graham's Party Crown

    I had this crown custom made and she was super fast and easy to work with. She also made my other little one's birthday crown. They have longer velcro straps on them so they can adjust to their head as they grow older. We plan to use them for every birthday until they grow out of it.

  • Me, Myself and I


  • The Lovely COSTCO!


  • Bug Fabric


    I used the Beetle Boy by Ellen Crimi. ADORABLE!
