Party Inspiration Series... The Ladybug Birthday!

Hello and welcome to my first instalment of a special 'birthday party' special I'll be running weekly on my blog; where I feature different themes complete with the best images from across the net giving you styling ideas, colour palettes, menu options, AND I'm challenging myself to come up with a special custom designed bm3 outfit in the chosen birthday theme!

This week, I'm running with...

A very cute theme to start with, me thinks! And - as a theme that would be equally as appropriate to a first birthday as it would a 10th, this one is super versatile to boot! Here are some images I found to inspire a gorgeous ladybug party!
