I just LOVE the wonderful modern-meets-vintage twist that Jenny of Bloom Designs Online carried throughout this adorable Baby Bumble Bee Party. And while this sweet-as-honey celebration was for a first birthday party, most of these ideas would translate beautifully to a chic Bumble Bee Baby Shower too!

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • Paper Mache Bumble Bee Piñata
  • “Bumble Gum” & “Bee Patient” planted sunflower seed favors
  • Simple chic floral arrangements in twine-embellished silver cans and mason jars
  • “Beehive S’mores” served in darling mini beehive jars
  • Lemon parfaits, caramel cheesecake shooters, & more yummy treats!

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jenny

When my dear friend, Tracy, asked me to do the printables and dessert table for her son, Brendan’s first birthday, I was so honored. Tracy has amazing style and knew exactly the feel she wanted for Baby B’s party- modern, classy with a little bit of vintage. Tracy had picked the graphic marigold fabric for the tablecloth on the dessert table and wanted to use burlap and twine accents. She made the adorable paper mache bees for decorations and centerpieces and wrapped tin cans with twine to continue the vintage feel on the tables.

For the dessert table, I stuck to treats that fit our gold, burlap and white color scheme. Yummy treats included beehive s’mores, caramel cheesecake shooters, honey popcorn, lemon parfaits, and store bought Oreo Cakesters decorate with chocolate stripes. The kids loved the bit of honey treat bags and honey taffy. For the backdrop picture, I simply sent the image of the bee that we used on the invitations to my local printer who enlarged it to fit our frame. The small frame on the table is a list of the many virtues Tracy and her husband, Charlie, wish for their son.

Guest left with bumble gum tubes and Mason jars that Tracy had planted with sunflower seeds and a tag reminding them to “bee patient”. All the banners and labels were in the shape of a honeycomb. The entire bee collection including invitation, labels, banner, water bottle wraps, juice box covers and more is available for purchase here.
