The treats at this party were bug-tastic! Starbursts were used to create the bugs along with Oreo crumbles and dyed coconut for the cupcake topping. Delish + oh so cute. And I especially love how a butterfly cutter was used for the watermelon on the fruit skewers! bug 2nd birthday party decorations picture 6bug 2nd birthday party decorations picture 7Here is a recap of this BUG THEMED BIRTHDAY PARTY!
