Love an Ugly Bug Ball!

We were all very excited when we received our invitation to our little friend Beth's 2nd Birthday - it was to be "an ugly bug ball" We already had a little LadyBug hat in the dress ups box - courtesy of Ikea and to make the rest of the outfit for Amalia, we have a Cheeky Chickies Rib Crew Neck Long Sleeve Tee and Slim Fit Pants both in Squid Ink Black, a red pettiskirt from Tu Tu Delightful, and the finishing touches made my mummy, aka Mrs Chicken, a Rosette Brooch finished with a ladybug button, and hand made ladybub wings.

Little Mr Taelan did not miss out, he was mummy's contemporary version of a bumble bee, wearing Cheeky Chickies Rib Crew Neck Long Sleeve Top, Bubble Pants, both in squid ink black, a Rib Tank in Frangipani with special applique strips, and a hand made beanie, also made by mummy (up-cycled from a spare top from the samples bucket)

The party decorations were absolutely gorgeous - styled by local Sutherland Shire party decorations business Divine Eventions, and it was a laugh to see that almost all the kids at the party were either dressed as ladybugs or bumble bees - with the exception of two spidermen.
Both my kids had an absolute ball, and Mali loved the addition of some feature face painting!

A BIG Happy 2nd Birthday to our little friend Beth - she had lots of fun, and big congrats to her talented mummy Emma on another fantastic home made birthday cake - it was very yummy!
