{REAL PARTY} Bee Party Inspiration

I'm not a fan of bees....at all....whatsoever...in fact, they terrify me, but they are so iconic of warm weather and of the honey they produce, that it's such sweet and adaptable theme for spring or summer gatherings! I have seen so many adorable parties featured around the little bee, like this bee themed birthday featured on The Creative Party Place, that I may have changed my mind about bees! (Well, a little bit!)

How cute are the yellow and white paper lanterns and paper poms? It really creates the effect of buzzing bee hives!

Tissue paper corsages for each of the party guests!

Love the yellow "honey pot" flower pots and fresh, white flowers! Daisies would be beautiful too.
And the game prize.....

....you guessed it!

I'm particularly fond of the combination of yellow and white, rather than yellow and black, which keeps the details warm and sunny.

And how about the custom details of this first birthday party featured on Imprintables?

From the food labels,

to the birthday cake,

...to the whole dessert table and honeycomb backdrop , everything features the happy little bee. (It's so much easier to love a bee when it's this cute!)

It wouldn't be a tribute to the bee without a few honey-infused sweets, like this honey popcorn in paper cones!

An obvious, but fool-proof favor idea would be jars of honey.

These cupcakes are absolutely amazing! They're topped with hexagonal "honeycomb" sugar cookies, filled with honey in the center, and complete with candy "bees"!

Of course, this theme could easily be adapted for a baby shower or even a bridal shower! For just such an example, just check out this chic B is for Baby Shower featured on Hostess with the Mostess!

Thanks so much for featuring my party! The link to my blog post is broken. I think there is an extra http// in there.

Great post!
