A Bug Birthday Party

Wednesday, June 6, 2012
This past weekend we celebrated Mr. M's 3rd Birthday with a Bug Themed party.

We had the party at one of our favorite spots here in San Antonio, Two Bros. BBQ Market.
Great TX BBQ, a fun outside play scape, and a few close friends and family is all M needed to have a fun day!

The Invitation:
Printable or Emailable Bugs Insect Birthday Party Invitation
I love how the invitation turned out!  It is another custom order created by Jane at BugLuv.
She is now offering it in her Etsy Shop HERE!

 The Birthday Boy:

The Decorations:

Dollar Tree: Large Orange 
Target:  Orange Mesh Trash Can (dollar spot)

 OK, these cupcake are semi homemade... As in.. I purchased the cupcakes at our local bakery and had the baker frost the green icing to look like grass.  
I did make the bugs myself though.  There is a great tutorial in the book : Hello Cupcake.  Basically you pipe melted chocolate with a small tipped pasty bag on to parchment paper.  while the chocolate is still warm place different sized MMs as the bugs body.  Let set in fridge for 5 minutes and them place on cupcake.  They were surprisingly easy to make!

Look!  A hungry bug even took a bite out of the plate. :)

The Favors:

Target: Bug box, small net, magnifying glass, small bugs, bubbles, gummy worms
Dollar spot: Large GROW bug
