Set in a perfect little location at Nook in Fairfax, Virginia, the simple single-table setup puts a lot of the focus on the bugs and insects themselves!

The birthday cake is a simple one tier cake decorated with lots of little critters. We love the big candy scorpion on top, along with the deliciously sweet ladybugs, worms, beetles, and grasshoppers that joined in on the ‘dirt’ cake.
