{real parties} oh goodie! designs - BUG party

Tate....the birthday boy...

He's SUPER excited about his recent "BUG" themed birthday party!!
And I'm super excited to share it with you...

When JoAnne from Oh Goodie! Designs promised to share some party pictures with me...
showcasing the "Bug Themed Party Printables" from my shoppe...
I was definitely excited to see what sort of creative ideas she'd come up with.
Boy was I blown away by all of the party details found throughout.
And...I could FEEL the energy of this party as soon as she shared the pictures with me.
I wanted to share the energy with you too!!

Fun party poms & the birthday banner added the perfect pops of party colors!!

Water bottles and straws were tied into the party theme using my "Bug Collection" celebration circles. They turned out ADORABLE!!

Look at this dessert table filled with loads of edible eye-candy!!
(notice the paper bags on the table to be used for the kids to fill up with their favorite treats)
(the use of glass containers and those adorable tin pails were the perfect choice)

these "dirt cake" cupcakes are a MUST for this bug party
i like how the cupcake toppers were backed with pops of colored cardstock

The clever use of names given to the variety of tasty "bug bites" was a FUN touch...

There were plenty of activities for the kids to do to help burn off all of that sugar...*wink*
(using nets to catch dragonflys dropped from the stairwell, face painting, bug collecting throughout the house using bug catchers & coloring were all age appropriate activities...)

The kids were sent home with colorful & clever party favors, beautifully displayed as part of the party decor...

from silly bands, plastic bugs and bug catchers...

to glow in the dark bug lights...

i'd venture to guess that EVERYONE...especially the birthday boy...were "buzzing" with excitement!!
(i ADORE the birthday boy's bug shirt...)

Thanks JoAnne from Oh Goodie! Designs for putting on a fabulous party.
All of the other customers out there who've purchased the invitations & party accessories from my Bug Collection...
and those of you considering "Bug Themed" parties...
I'm sure you feel inspired by all of these creative & fun ideas!

And for the rest of you...I hope this post energized your Tuesday morning...
The vibrant colors, the eye-candy and the energy in these photos - how could it not?! *wink*

Have a GREAT Tuesday everyone!!
