This party was so much fun to plan! I decided to do a bumble bee theme.
When I saw pictures of bumble bee themed parties I just loved the way it looked. Yellow, being my favorite color, was a huge draw and I couldn't wait to make this party bright and striped! I loved the idea of making my little girl a bee for the day.
I have a pretty eclectic style when it comes to decorating. I love pulling many different looks and making them work together. It's great when I can create different pieces that work with everything. It gives our home a much more personal touch.
I explain in greater detail how I made all of the decor at crossmyheartartdesigns.blogspot.com.
I had a few favorite items at the party. One of them being the jumbo cupcake I made for Reese. I loved using the Jumbo Wilton cupcake pan and making the hard candy liner for the wrapper. I also loved the way her year timeline and "Happy Bee Day Reese banner turned out. They added the perfect personal touch and were a great conversation piece.
There are many places you can buy things online, but if you have the time it's fun to make the decor. I started a month early so I would not feel rushed and so that I could really enjoy myself. I thought about how much fun it will be when my little girl gets older and she can help me make all of the decorations.
