One of Big Dot’s favorite Superfans, Suling, is a definite Hostess Hero as she creates amazing events celebrating all of life’ special occasions. She chose the Modern Ladybug theme to honor her daughter’s first birthday and it simply couldn’t have been more perfect. Her use of Modern Ladybug do-it-yourself items along with Ladybug shaped soap birthday party favors was only made better with the addition of coordinating Modern Ladybug tableware.
Suling put together an impressive buffet table that pulled the ladybug birthday party theme into the food choices as well. Her deviled eggs and cracker hors d’oeuvres topped with tomato ladybugs were almost too cute to eat. The addition of cheese and meat cubes put together with matching frilled party picks helped create a completely coordinated table. Fruit kabobs and other finger foods rounded out the food choices while the cupcake stand made an impressive centerpiece.
Suling was kind enough to share her Sweet Jello Treat Recipe:
Red Jello mixed to package directions and poured into single-serving cups (If you use Dixie Clear Plastic Pete Cups, for cold beverages in the 9 oz. size or an equivalent container, the coordinating Modern Ladybug cupcake wrapper fits perfectly!)
After the Jello is set, add a dollop of creamy Supreme Vanilla frosting (Made pink with a bit of red food coloring)
Chocolate sticks make the Ladybug’s antenna; a blackberry for Ladybug’s head; and a strawberry for the wings
The dots on the wings are Chocolate gel!
