My baby Mel (in portuguese means honey) was turning one. So I could not think of better theme than a bee party. It was great! I used bee-like ballons on the ceiling (I hired some one I knew that could do it). The cost was not bad. I went to ikea, t.j.maxx, joan's fabric, so I would not be bankrupt after the party :-)
Some things (like the little bees made out of clay) , and the cake topI bought from Brazil. So, a lot of imagination can overcome not having a fortune to spend. It was a huge success!
