I'm working on a party...and it's completely taking all my time. You will love it I promise, so while I'm working my fanny pack off planning this party, I am going to show you a party you may have missed. Let's look back at a fan favorite party - the Indoor Picnic. Most of you would have the courage to host the picnic, well, outdoors. I'm really not much of an outdoor party girl, maybe it's because I can't control the weather, or maybe I want to get things set up waaaay early, or maybe...goodness knows there are lots of reasons!! Whatever it is, I decided to have an INDOOR picnic. (Ladybugs and ants were flown in from the most beautiful picnic parks in the world).
I made the party invites from wedding invitations found at Hobby Lobby~
I'm having a Picnic in my Great Indoors...
Complete with Ladybugs
and Ants galore!
No need to worry, come rain or shine...
At this picnic, we'll have a great time!
I used wrap around polka dot address labels I ordered from Etsy.
I had flowers planted in my urns out front~my challenge was to keep them watered all summer long!
And a giant cupcake tower to greet the guest when they came in the front door~
With cupcake picks that read "Welcome Ladies"
Around the corner was the picnic basket filled with bread~
No one remembered the song...
I wrapped up each little 7 grain roll in parchment and tied them with twine. I don't know about you, but if I just had a basket of bread, I would be happy....and full!
Here's a treat everyone loved~
Chocolate Cheesecake Truffle Pops, what a fun park these ladybugs came from! I made the leaves with my Cricut and bought wooden ladybugs from HL, glued on the leaf. Punched a hole and tied to the cheesecake pop with ribbon. Displayed in sugar filled glasses.
Over on the counter was the perfect Ant I Dote!
Sorbet in frosted glasses then topped with Asti!
Did you notice the ants crawling up the ice bucket?
They crawled right off the fabric onto the ice bucket!!
I told you there were ants galore!!
I c'ANT wait to show you more!
