Tori wanted a cheetah themed birthday party this year, so being the good mom that I am I threw her a "bug" party...hee! Actually, it is difficult to find cute party stuff this side of the ocean so when I stumbled on the adorable lady bug (they would say "lady bird" here) party stuff in one of our local stores my persuasion skills took over.
The "bug table"....complete with yummy treats such as ants on a log, caterpillar corn, bug cups, ladybird balls, a bucket of bugs and worm juice.
This cute larvae wouldn't be complaining about bugs in his food....
Completing our edible bug treats was the birthday "dirt" cake....
The birthday girl (quite pleased by the way with her party theme and cake of choice)
The party activities....
Vs. Team Flower
The Cocoon Wrap (not to be confused with the Mummy Wrap :) )
A worm eating contest
The bug on a fly swatter relay
The inch worm race
Which for the little ones turned into "bug pile" with Uncle Rich
The whole lot of bugs, including the little larvae joined in a round of "Buzz, Buzz, Sting"...
And Tori's favorite...The Fear Factor Challenge, where to win one must find 3 worms and a bug in the pie of jello using only one's mouth.
Only a few took the challenge
The winner???....the birthday bug and she was pretty buzzed!
And what would a bug party be without bug masks? Each would decorate their own...
Aren't they cute?
I intended to get a photo of the guests buzzing around the garden wearing their masks however the masks were laden with pom poms and too heavy to wear. Typical girls...the more poof and pizzazz the prettier. :)
From cheetah to bug, I'd say this beautiful butterfly was happy with the metamorphosis.
