Ladybug Baby Shower: Decorations

Decorations can take your baby shower to the next level and help bring the theme to life. Having all things ladybug inspired will not only set the tone for the rest of the baby shower, but it will thoroughly impress your guests! 

1. Flowers

Adding touches of flowers, both real or fake, will perfectly complement the ladybug theme. Sunflowers or daisies will add a nice flair, but you can also add any flowers of your choice. Flowers are quite versatile, as you can add them to tables or hang them throughout your venue. You can also incorporate flowers in other decorations, such as table centerpieces.

2. Mason Jar Floral Centerpiece

Centerpieces can tie together the look of each table. You can purchase pre-assembled centerpieces if you prefer. However, if you are feeling crafty it can be quite simple to put one together. One easy way is to take a Mason Jar or vase and fill them with ivy branches, battery-operated twinkle lights, some fake ladybugs, or fireflies. Neatly place each item in the jar to your liking and then put the cover on, and voila you’re done! But if you want to take it one step further you can even paint the lid to be red with black polka dots. 

3. Polka Dot Balloons

It is customary that you have balloons at a baby shower, but what better than ladybug balloons at a ladybug baby shower! You can do a mix of red, black, and white, which will tie in nicely with the color scheme. You may also want to consider purchasing a helium tank to help make the set-up process a bit easier. 


4. Ladybug String Lights

Are you planning on having a baby shower later in the day? Well, ladybug string lights can be the perfect decoration to add to the party. They will both brighten up the venue and be a really cute addition to the ladybug theme! 

5. Ladybug Streamers

Naturally, you cannot successfully have a ladybug baby shower without making sure to include ladybug streamers. You can always make ladybugs out of scrapbook paper or you can just as easily purchase some ladybug signs or garland from most stores in their party section. 

6. Welcome Sign

When your guests arrive, let them get a quick sneak peek at the theme to come with a ladybug welcome sign! For some choices, feel free to customize it as you see fit with a custom name to represent your baby!

7. Ladybug Backdrop

Having a fun ladybug theme backdrop is great for taking fun photos, or simply adding another decoration to your party!

Ladybug Baby Shower: Party Favors


Painted Ladybug Candy Jars

Do you have any small jars laying around the house, such as empty baby food jars? Well, recycling the jars by painting them red with black polka dots and filling them with candy, such as red M&Ms, is the perfect way to reuse them. 

9. Ladybug Chocolates

What better to add to a party favor than decadent chocolates! Ladybug foiled chocolates will fit the bill. They are not only adorable and perfect for the ladybug theme, but they will be sure to make your guests smile. 

10. Jelly Bean Filled Baby Bottles

This one ties in perfectly with the baby shower theme and is easy to assemble. All you will need is some jelly beans, preferably black and red, as well as some decorative baby bottles. Fill them to your liking and they will be sure to impress your guests!

11. Ladybug Magnets

Not only are ladybug magnets a cute souvenir for your guests' refrigerators, but they will also serve as a piece of memorabilia to remember the baby shower.  

12. Ladybug Party Favor Bags

Consider finding party favor bags that go along with the color scheme or ladybug pattern. Buying both standard black and red bags, or red bags with black polka dots may be the easiest option. But you may also be able to find gift bags or boxes with ladybugs on them. 

13. Hand Sanitizer

Everyone wants to keep clean and safe while at a gathering, so giving your guests ladybug theme hand sanitizer will keep them just that!

14. Bath Bombs

These bath bombs are a fun favor for your guests to use at any point after the party, and will remind them of how much fun they had!


Ladybug Baby Shower: Menu Ideas

15. Ladybug Cake

A ladybug cake may be one of the easier baby shower cakes to make as it uses a normal round shape. To create one, just make the desired cake flavor in as many layers as you would like. The next step is frosting the crumb coat on the cake using red frosting. After the crumb coat hardens, then you will pipe on a black circle and facial features using a standard tip. Then, finish piping the rest of the cake in red frosting with a different tip to add texture. Lastly, you will want to pipe on several black polka dots, add the cake topper and it's as simple as that! You will then have an adorable ladybug cake that will impress the mom-to-be! 


16. Ladybug and Flower Cookie Cutters

Consider purchasing some cookie cutters, as you will be able to make multiple different ladybug-shaped and flower-shaped food items, such as cookies or sandwiches. A platter of shaped finger sandwiches would add yet another creative element to the party. With the shaped cookies you could even take it a step further and put them on sticks and put them in a plant pot to bring in more nature vibes. Don’t be afraid to get creative with it! You would be surprised by the different food items you can cut into shapes. 

17. Fruit Kebabs

A fruit platter on its own is already a showstopper at most events, but cut the fruit into fun shapes and put them on skewers and the guests won’t be able to contain their excitement! You can even take it a step further and hollow out a watermelon and put the fruit kebabs in the carved watermelon. You can also add blueberries on the outside of the watermelon shell with toothpicks to replicate the polka dots on a ladybug as a cute finishing touch! 

18. Chocolate Covered Pretzels and Strawberries

This one may sound self-explanatory but chocolate-covered pretzels or strawberries are always a crowd favorite. Take larger-sized pretzels and dip them in the desired flavors of chocolate and then top them off with some toppings of your choice, such as red or black sprinkles and some googly eyes. For the strawberries, dip them in the desired chocolate and then after they slightly harden, drizzle some more chocolate on top. You can even switch between different chocolates on each strawberry. 

19. Bug Inspired Veggie Tray

For a ladybug-inspired veggie & fruit tray, scatter some cherry tomatoes and black olives in the center and then put the other desired veggies and dips around it. Just another simple way to creatively tie into the ladybug baby shower theme! Plus, who doesn’t love a light and healthy snack at a baby shower? 


Black and Red M&Ms 

M&Ms are always a crowd-pleaser at baby showers. Displaying candy dishes at each table filled with red and black M&Ms is another easy way to tie into the ladybug color scheme. 

21. Cupcakes

These treats are small and easy to make, but that doesn’t mean that they are any less delicious! Spruce them up with ladybug theme colors to truly bring them to life, whether that is their icing, toppers, or some red and black liners!

Ladybug Baby Shower: Games

22. Candy Guessing Game

Test your guests’ intelligence by having them guess how many candies are in a jar. The winner is determined by deciphering who was the closest to accurately guessing the right number. Entice the winner with a neat prize. The game is quite popular among smaller-scale events, and will be sure to get your guests to put their thinking caps on!


23. Build-a-Ladybug Contest

See which guests are the most crafty by having your guests put together a ladybug with common craft supplies. To make it interactive and engaging have the mom-to-be judge them. It can be a fun way for the mom-to-be to engage with the guests in a humorous and light-hearted manner. 

24. Pin the Bug on the Flower

A similar concept to “pin the tail on the donkey”, but instead, it's pinning the spot on the ladybug! Essentially you want the guests to pin the ladybug as close as possible to the designated mark on the ladybug. But did I mention that you get to blindfold them and spin them around a few times? Not only is this a spin on a classic, but this is yet another humorous and lighthearted game to play at a ladybug baby shower. 


25. Word Scramble

Another fun game is to unscramble the word, but ladybug-themed! This game is simple, classic, and fun for all ages.


26. Find the Ladybug in the Garden

Similar to 'find the needle in the haystack", this game involves each person trying to find the hidden ladybugs. It's super simple and easy to include people of all ages.

Ladybug Baby Shower: Party Supplies 

27. Decorative Tablecloths

Plastic tablecloths are another fun way to spruce up the appearance of individual tables. Choose between solid colors, such as red and black, or even choose a fun pattern like polka dots! Tablecloths are simple yet also a game-changer for adding more color and vibrancy to the party.

28. Ladybug Tableware

You absolutely cannot have a ladybug-themed baby shower without ladybug paper products, such as cups, plates, bowls, and napkins. Another cute and easy way to elevate the appearance of the tables. 

29. Silverware and Cutlery

Buying red and black plastic silverware and cutlery will perfectly align with the ladybug color scheme!

30. Ladybug Straws

Providing straws for your guests to use with their drinks will bring a smile to everyone's face when they see the cute ladybugs that add to the theme of your party.



Ladybug Drink Dispenser

Having a cute drink dispenser for your guests to access drinks will make any party run smoothly and satisfy your guests. It's also a cute addition to the theme of the party!

Ladybug Baby Shower: Invitations

Well, putting together hand-crafted baby shower invitations allows you to get exactly what you want at an affordable price. All you need is a variety of high-quality paper or card stock, some basic craft items, some envelopes, as well as a personal or catchy saying, and you will be able to create your very own invitations!

33. Buy Fill-in Invitations

Are you looking for a quick and easy set of invitations that you can purchase and fill out all in one day? Well, store-bought invitations are the solution! If you are lucky, you may be able to find ladybug-themed invitations.

Children's birthday menu: photos, recipes, dish ideas

How to make a child's birthday truly unforgettable? Gather his friends, come up with entertainment and, of course, treat everyone to something delicious. But pleasing little guests is sometimes more difficult than adult gourmets. Our article will come to the rescue. In it, we have collected 10 dishes that will enchant even the most capricious persons. Serve these treats for a kid's birthday party and no one will leave hungry.

Original canapés

Kids will appreciate the unusual presentation, and adults will appreciate the ease of cooking. Indeed, among the recipes for a children's birthday, it is important to have at least one option for a quick snack. For canapes in the form of ladybugs, it is better to take unsalted crackers with the addition of whole grain flour. You can grease the products with both pate and hummus or curd cheese.


  • crackers - 10 pcs.
  • cherry tomatoes - 5 pcs.
  • leaf lettuce - 3-4 leaves
  • olives - 3 pcs.
  • pate - to taste

  2. Brush crackers with pâté and cover with lettuce. Excess greens can be removed.
  3. Top the salad with half a cherry and a quarter of an olive.
  4. Decorate the finished ladybug with a pattern of white dots. To do this, dip a toothpick in Greek yogurt or mayonnaise and gently color the workpiece. nine0014

Snack muffins

Children are rarely fans of vegetables. But thanks to such muffins, they will even eat the hated green beans or green peas. It's nice that you can change the toppings to your liking. For example, take corn, ham or some broccoli and cauliflower. It is also better not to forget about the vegetable slices on the table. Serve carrot, pepper and cucumber sticks with yoghurt sauce.


  • green beans - 100 g
  • green peas - 100 g
  • cheese - 100 g
  • chicken eggs - 2 pcs.
  • sour cream - 3 tbsp. l.

Cheese donuts

If you don't know what to cook, try these donuts. At a children's birthday party, they will definitely become a popular treat. The main thing is to find a good crumbly cottage cheese with a fat content of 5-9%. It is desirable that there is not too much moisture in the mass, gluing the grains together. Otherwise, wrap the cottage cheese with gauze and put it under pressure for 2-3 hours to remove excess moisture.


  • cottage cheese - 200 g

As a sauce, ordinary ketchup or a mixture of pureed tomatoes boiled with spices is suitable.

  7. Bake the mini pizzas for 15 minutes at 210°C.

Chicken skewers

Homemade skewers continue the selection of recipes for children's birthdays. When preparing a marinade, remember that the child likes simple and understandable tastes more.

For a sandwich, you need bread or a bun. If you want to make breakfast as healthy as possible, take whole grain bread or a loaf with bran. Instead of sausage, use lean ham or homemade boiled pork. nine0003

The main thing for children's sandwiches is an unusual design. Even the usual cheese sandwich, if you try, easily turns into a work of art. Therefore, get up in the morning half an hour earlier and build a dish in the form of an animal, car or house.

A simple diagram for beginners

For those who have never picked up beads, you can use a simple diagram to create a flat model. It can be used to make a key ring.

Required materials and tools:

Beading of insect figures is always done parallel to the center. For the convenience of giving and maintaining the shape of the finished work, copper wire is used.

Cord can be used to weave small items. Its thickness is selected according to the diameter of the hole of the beads. Since this tutorial uses a small amount of detail, the shape holds up very well.

Step-by-step instructions:

  1. Work begins by preparing a cord about 80 cm long and attaching it to the ring. Two black beads are strung on it and fixed in the center. nine0014
  2. The two free ends are crossed, threaded through the beads and pulled tight.
  3. Then the threads of the cord are crossed in three black beads. Their number grows with each new row.
  4. Spots are made of red beads, which are replaced in several places by black ones. In this way, the back is gradually formed according to the scheme.
  5. At the penultimate stage, the threads are crossed in two red and two black beads.
  6. The final step is to form a strong knot. The rest of the cord is cut off. nine0014

Sweet sandwiches for children

Despite the fact that we are not accustomed to sweet sandwiches, many hostesses also cook them. For a children's holiday, such a delicacy is an excellent option and a good alternative to sweets and cakes.

  • Then melt the butter in a frying pan and fry the loaf in it.

Ladybug breeding

Ladybug breeding occurs several times a year, in spring or autumn. In temperate latitudes, this is the beginning of May. The female becomes sexually mature at the age of 3-6 months. As a rule, after a cold period, she is able to emit a pungent odor that attracts males. Dies after laying eggs.

The female places her eggs on vegetation with an abundance of aphids, which provides food for future offspring in advance. They have an elongated shape, narrowed towards the end, painted in yellowish-orange colors. One masonry can number from several to 400 pieces, arranged in even rows, close to each other. Sometimes they can be eaten by their own relatives, the so-called cannibal larvae. nine0003

Felting a ladybug's body

1. Tear off a piece of red wool 2*12 cm. Twist it tightly into an oval so that all edges are even and neat.

Tip: If you can't roll the wool well the first time, unroll it and try again. Don't despair, skill comes with experience!

2. Wool twisted? We transfer it to the sponge and, holding it with our fingers, we begin to stick a thin needle for felting. We twist the oval, fastening it with piercings throughout the depth. nine0003

3. We need to give the product an oval, flat bottom shape. To do this, we compress the wool into a flat cake and poke a needle between the fingers to fix a flatter shape. We form the body with a needle, as if we were sculpting it from plasticine. Where it is necessary to reduce the volume, we pierce more often. Help with your fingers to give the workpiece the desired shape. As a result, the body should become dense and similar in shape to a ladybug.


These scenes usually do not take much time. They are staged with the help of one or two actors. Very rarely more is needed. nine0003

It is convenient to insert them before the next toast in order to somehow diversify the usual course of the feast and entertain the hero of the day with his guests.

Urgent Medical Examination

A man, fully dressed as a doctor, enters the room. He is wearing glasses, a white coat, a stethoscope, shoe covers. In his hand he holds a small "medical suitcase". Doctor: Please, please! Before congratulations sound, I have to examine our today's hero. He goes straight to the hero of the day and begins the examination: he examines the face, ears, pupils, asks to touch the tip of the nose, listens to breathing with a stethoscope and performs other medical manipulations. During this impromptu medical examination, the doctor comments on his actions with various remarks: “So, sir,” “let's see what we have here,” “yeah, yeah,” “I thought so,” and the like. After that, he makes a short speech. nine0003

Doctor's speech

I have done a full examination of our patient and am ready to give a full report on his health! So…

  • Anniversary (last name, first name, patronymic).
  • Age - in the prime of life, that is, flourishing.

"Old Year vs New Year" scene with dressing up

Six people are required for the performance: host, Old Year, New Year and three employees. The old year is dressed in a costume with elements of festive decor, but already pretty shabby. He has a sign with the numbers 2022 on his chest. The New Year is dressed in a Santa Claus costume, he also has the numbers 2022 on his chest. All other participants do not need special clothes.

Host: On the main night, when one year follows another, it is customary to see off the Old and welcome the New. What if you could choose who to stay with? Employees of a well-known company were lucky, they were given such a chance. nine0003

The Old Year is on the left, the New Year is on the right, next to him are employees who take part in the skit.

Old (looks reproachfully at the employees): That's it! And this is your gratitude for the time we spent together!

Officer 1 (C1): What good have we seen from you? Did you love us? Every day everything became more expensive, lost, broken, did not work!

C2: You promised that our wishes would come true, but in the end?

Old: Why did you think that our Olympic team would win, huh? The desire, of course, is good, but there could not be an Olympics in 2022! nine0003

C3: Were you weak? Why did we burn notes, pour ashes into champagne, poison ourselves with this muck to the sound of chimes?

Old: Well, let's face it, you poisoned yourself because Olivier seasoned with mayonnaise should be kept in the refrigerator after cooking, and not on the table near the battery . .. Secondly, who told you that if you write something somewhere , then it should be executed? Then can I start doing graffiti on the walls of a public toilet? There, too, nothing so desires are met, "Call me", for example. nine0003

S1: Ha, it doesn't take much talent to perform "Call Me"! Any fool can do it! It is not necessary to leave the topic, it is better to leave completely.

Old: Yes, no question, I listen and obey. But who are you going to stay with? WITH THIS?? At least you already know everything about me, but this is a pig in a poke! More precisely, a year in a bag! I can already guarantee you that gasoline will not rise in price in me, oil will not fall in price, the president will not change, the football team will not win, the retirement age will not increase, taxes on parasitism will not appear, the state duty for divorce will not increase, the Russian Orthodox Church will not have more concerts cancel! nine0003

C2: Well, that the national team won't win, and the president won't change us, and this one can guarantee (points to the New Year).

Old: Well, how did he bribe you? Do you have eight days off? Have you asked your liver if it needs it? Here you are, remember (referring to C1), I gave you a meeting with your beloved! But you (referring to C2) took out a mortgage in me.

C2: Thank you dear! Therefore, I will definitely not forget you until retirement!

Old: And you (referring to C3) didn't have anything good at all? Have you been to Thailand? nine0003

C3: I've gone! Then he lived on bread and water for a month after such a vacation!

Old: Oh, you are! Okay, I'm leaving! But just a little time will pass, and you will remember me! Remember how wonderful I was! What good things have happened to you! Someone had a son, someone was promoted, someone got married. And only by photographs you will be able to remember these wonderful moments. And when you leave, it’s bad in your back: it broke, it didn’t work out, they didn’t give it ... What kind of fate I have such! nine0003

Employees approach the Old Year, put their hands on his shoulder.

C1: Don't be offended, you were really good (they begin to remember what important things happened in the company, what significant events the employees had). S2: We didn't mean to offend you. S2: We didn't mean to offend you

S2: We didn't mean to offend you.

C3: Let's go on together, shall we? Let's leave all the negativity and move on!

Old: Thank you, friends! But no, we don’t live in the Looking Glass, it should somehow differ from year to year (it starts to slowly and sadly leave). nine0003

New Year: Of course it should be different! Let's start with utility bills! (Hands out receipts to employees.)

C1: HOW MUCH?? 25 percent??

Employees in a crowd rush to run after the Old Year and shout: “Stop! Don't go!! We are with you!! We've changed our minds!!"

Omens about an insect in the room

A ladybug in the house is a good omen. A bug that flew into the apartment of a married couple who have no children in the fall will soon bring a long-awaited replenishment. If a sonorous children's laughter is already heard in the house, then the kids will grow up healthy and friendly. nine0003

If a bug has flown into an apartment or a house, this indicates the high moral principles that prevail in the family. It has been noticed that the insect more often enters houses with positive energy. No need to drive away the insect that flew to visit. This can bring bad luck to family members. It is enough to plant a bug on a houseplant near an open window, and the insect will fly away on its own, without staying long in the house.

If a ladybug flew into the children's room and sat down on the bed, the baby will grow up healthy and happy. A bug sitting on a marital bed prophesies a strong relationship and mutual love. nine0003

A bug that flew into the house in the morning will help to search for a long-lost thing. The appearance of an insect in the apartment during the day portends the visit of guests. A cow crawling on the windowsill in the evening is a good omen that predicts pleasant leisure time with the family.

If someone is sick in the house, the traces of yellow secret left by the insect promise a speedy recovery. The same marks left by a bug on the window portend a visit from a distant relative. When you see yellow footprints on the table, get ready for an increase in income. nine0003

How to avoid the consequences predicted in signs

Bad omens associated with a ladybug are infrequent and are not an unconditional sentence. Besides ignoring, there are other methods to avoid negativity:

Never kill an insect. The ladybug must be released without fail

Whether reading a rhyme, a plot, a whisper is not particularly important. Sometimes it is enough to shake off an insect with the words “keep me away”, spit over the left shoulder

Knock on wood or perform other manipulations that seem most appropriate and are considered to ward off evil. If we are talking about getting a beetle into the web, you must try to immediately release it. To avoid accidents at home, it is advised to regularly appease the Brownie. Then no superstitions about misfortunes within the boundaries of the dwelling are terrible. Allow aphids to multiply a little in the summer cottage, give food to the beetle

It is assumed that having received the location of the insect, you can attract positive vital energy. nine0003

An equally effective way is to embroider a small image of a beetle and hang it in your room, buy a decoration or get a talisman with an insect.

Scene two: "Congratulations from the fairy"

The guests and the birthday girl are sitting at the table. 5 fairies enter the hall. Each of them is wearing a cap with a cape. On the caps there is an inscription: "Health", "Joy", "Love", "Happiness", "Old Age". Each holds a flower, says the words of wishes and hands the flower to the birthday girl.

Fairies rush to the birthday girl. nine0003

Fairy "Health": Oh, how healthy she has become, just look!

Fairy "Joy": How joyfully her eyes shine!

Fairy "Love": What love she is surrounded by this day!

Fairy "Happiness": Oh, how her cheeks blush with happiness!

Fairy "Old Age" (sternly): She has matured one year again. .. Old age is not a joy...

Fairy "Health": Sisters, let's congratulate our dear princess (waves her magic wand)0003

I wish you, Never get sick, Do not moan, do not sneeze. So that strong legs always walk, A heavy hand does not moan from a bag, So that your body is filled with health, And you never know crutches, gypsum, enemas! Be healthy, blooming for another hundred years! To always hear compliments after!

Fairy "Joy":

Never be sad, don't remember troubles, Forgive all offenses, don't grieve, don't be bored. May the days be filled with sincere joy, Without empty fuss and unnecessary fuss. Cherish joy in your soul every moment you live, So that your joyful face shines like the sun! nine0003

Fairy "Happiness":

May your bright house be filled with happiness, May it always be warm and cozy in it. To be satisfied with her life, And her eyes shone with eternal happiness.

Fairy "Old Age" (putting her hands on her belt):

Ah, actually I would like to leave, But I went to the party on the way. I will not wish for anything, I want to give instructions. So that a gloomy gray old age does not creep up on you for a very long time, Drive away: despondency and grumbling, Discontent, laziness, longing, suffering. Stop complaining about the muscles, Turn your gaze to physical education! Move more and smile, And don't be offended over trifles. If you want to prolong youth, You need to live joyfully and cheerfully! nine0003

Fairy "Joy":

Finally, let's say with inspiration ... All: Dear (name of the birthday girl), happy birthday!!!

A bit of history

It is worth saying that ladybugs, as real rescuers from dangerous aphids, were known at the beginning of the 19th century and this happened in the USA. The situation was as follows, a very voracious and dangerous shield fluffy aphid was randomly brought from Australia to California, which simply multiplied incredibly quickly.

For gardeners who tried to use a variety of ways and methods of struggle, this became a huge problem, since all efforts were in vain. Aphids caused great damage to citrus trees. nine0003

The current situation was simply disastrous and scientists began to study the relationship between the "cow" and aphids. The reason for these studies was the example of the interaction of the "cow" with other insects, where the bug destroyed the mealybug and scale insect.

Entomologists were able to find out that Rodolia cardinalis, a species of ladybug, which is the biggest enemy of aphids, lives in Australia. Then this species was specially brought to California and quite successfully, the scheme worked, because the problem was solved in 2 years. nine0003

It is worth saying that among all the species of ladybugs there are those that are real leaders - Hippodamia convergens. These predators are very voracious and are able to clear the territory of pests in a short time, eating all the insects in their path. This species is very similar to other representatives, but there are differences in origin due to different environmental conditions.

From the life of "ladybugs"

The food for these beetles is aphids, the period of life of which lasts from early spring until the first autumn frosts, as well as other small insects. The duration of the "ladybug" activity lasts as long as there is food. In autumn, these beetles crawl under fallen leaves or stones and sleep until spring. Their life expectancy depends on the availability of food and can range from several months to a year. But under favorable conditions, it can be up to two years. nine0003

Young and old beetles can be distinguished. The fact is that young individuals have a bright color of rigid wings. It fades with age. The bright coloration is not accidental and is intended to warn those who wish to encroach on her life that she is poisonous. When meeting with a predator, she releases a kind of "milk" - an odorous and poisonous liquid. Here is another version of why the "ladybug" was called that.

It is interesting that birds do not hunt "cows", their main enemies are spiders and frogs, from which they try to fly away. When flying, the flapping of the wings is up to 85 beats per second. nine0003

Competition-fairy tale "No one marries"

  • Participants: 7 guests (oak, wolf, crow, frog, girl, well done, horse).
  • Props: chair, stage clothes for the characters (optional).

An oak stood in an empty field and waved its mighty branches. In the distance a wolf howled, a raven flapped its wings, and a frog croaked. And under an oak tree, a girl was sitting on a bench and sobbing, because. no one wanted to marry her. The animals heard this and decided to console the girl: a wolf came running and began to sing his signature song to her. But nothing pleased the girl. Then a crow flew in and shouted loudly: “Karrrrr!”. But the girl was crying louder and louder. The frog was the last to jump up, timidly approached the girl and croaked loudly. But nothing helped, the girl did not want to listen to anyone. nine0003

A young man was galloping past on his black horse and he heard weeping. He spurred his horse on so that it would gallop quickly to the girl, the horse neighed loudly, beat with its hoof and set off. They rode to the clearing where the girl was sitting. The animals got scared and ran away. Well done, as he saw the girl, he gasped: “How good she is! Marry me!". The girl already squealed with happiness and rushed into the arms of the young man. The good fellow put her on a horse and took her to his home to live there happily ever after, like our newlyweds. Bitterly! nine0003

Portal told you how interesting it is to beat a fairy tale at a wedding. Do not forget about other fun contests for guests, then your celebration will be remembered for a long time by your family and friends with its positive atmosphere and original entertainment!

Ladybug (soft toy)

Today the main character of the article will be a ladybug, the pattern of which we will need to sew a brooch, a soft toy and a pillow.

Episode 1: a felt brooch

We will sew such craft. nine0003

To do this, prepare:

  • bug pattern;
  • paper for redrawing the details of a ladybug;
  • red and black felt;
  • floss in two colors;
  • black and white beads;
  • adhesive moment;
  • fine needle through the holes of the beads;
  • scissors;
  • black beads 2 pcs;
  • brooch attachment for clothes.

Ladybug made of felt patterns, see the photo below. nine0003

Transfer the pattern to the cardboard, then redraw the templates from the cardboard onto the fabric. Cut out two black body parts, one red wing part and four black dots from felt. Body size 5 cm in diameter, dots - 1 cm. Glue black circles to the wings.

Now we need to overcast all points with floss threads, supplying each stitch with white beads.

Then glue the wings to one part of the body.

For a more secure fastening of the parts of the body with the wings, sew the edge of the wings with a seam forward with red threads folded twice. Again, complement each stitch with beads, this time in black. nine0003

How to attract a beneficial insect?

In addition to aphids and insects, ladybugs also eat pollen. And the pollen of some plants is preferable to them than the pollen of others. Examples of herbs that can be planted on the site to attract beetles are:

  • Calendula is a perennial herb. Grows well in full sun. It blooms in a lush bright orange palette. Lures ladybugs.
  • Dill is a hardy green plant that is extremely effective in attracting beetles. A widely used spice. nine0014
  • Cornflowers are a perennial plant that attracts ladybugs well.
  • Coriander is a wonderful spice that attracts beetles during flowering and growth.
  • Geranium is a hardy plant that will also help you attract ladybugs.
  • Tansy is a decorative and rather useful plant in our topic.
  • Dandelion - surprisingly, but so familiar to us herbaceous, is also extremely effective in the extermination of aphids.
  • Cosmos - this amazing flower can become not only a wonderful decoration of the garden, but no less pleasing protector. nine0014
  • Yarrow is one of Ladybug's favorite plants.
  • Peppermint - this herbal tea will help you at dinner and provide a complete dinner for Coccinellidae.
  • Fennel is a medicinal plant that requires fertile soil and warmth, but more than pays for this effort with a good indicator of ladybug immigration to your territory.
  • The string - a sun-loving decoration of your garden will also serve as an excellent bait for beetles. Among garden herbs, this flower will stand as a beacon for cows. nine0014

If you want ladybugs to take over your vegetation, then:

  1. Never use insecticides. These agents affect both harmful and beneficial insects. And they last a long time after use.
  2. Also, you can buy or transfer beetles from shops or other people's lands, of course, with the permission of the owner of the cows.
  3. Ferramon lures can also be used. They also show themselves as an effective measure in attracting ladybugs. It is preferable to combine it with the first advice on planting certain plant varieties in your area. nine0014
