Put milk chocolate chips in strawberries for more of a "labybug" effect. Next time, I would use smaller chocolate chips!
I found a free water bottle template and made it my own!

how did you make the balloon towers?

Really it's just balloons, tape and PVC pipe. I bought PVC pipe for $2 at Home Depot. The base is actually some old speaker stands that the pipe fit perfectly over, but you can probably make a base to hold the pipe. Then I blew up balloons and just taped the ends to the pipe. The top ladybug balloons are filled with helium and I just taped the string to them on. I made this the night before and it took me a little over an hour. It was actually quite quick. Good luck!
