A bee-utiful theme for a summer party! Complete with cute bumble bees, honeycombs and honey pots, a dash of bright sunflowers and a lot of sunshine!
Mainly summer and summertume picnics and outdoors entertainment, but also sunflowers and bumble bees!
Simple, but bright and cheerful. Punctuated by fresh, natural elements like the sunflowers we got from a neighbouring farm.
We had the party outside in the gardens as we had a nice little breeze under the trees. I decorated the place with yellow crepe paper pompoms which I got from my dear friend Martha (read Stewart). :)
The tables were covered in a cute yellow hearts tablecloth, which was really just fabric my sister sent me from Rio!
I also used the bunting and all the party templates and supplies from the Honey Bee Party Kit to decorate the tables and the garden walls. I say walls...it was a big pile of chestnut logs that acted as a backdrop to the sweets and drinks table, and a huge oak tree behind the cake table! :)
In the morning, we popped out to get some favor bag treats (little pots of artisan honey from the supermarket, honey sweets and honey lip-balm!). We also stopped by a neighbouring farm to get some sunflowers!
So the décor was pretty simple, summery, yellow and fresh! As for the desserts table, the sweets were honey boiled sweets that I placed in glass candy jars and little yellow, metal buckets I already had at home.
We also had plenty of chocolate covered treats (which were placed in the shade btw.) that I displayed in candy jars, decorated with party labels, jar wrappers from the Honey Bee Party Collection and some polka dot ribbon.
The tipple of the day was pure and simple home-made lemonade, sweetened with honey and OJ. decanted to cute vintage bottles. I wrote "Honey" on one of the fancy labels just to for fun! :)
Oh, one of the things that added a cute touch everywhere were little, adhesive wooden bees. I bought those ages ago for €1 and used them everywhere, even to decorate the paper plates. See? It pays to be a hoarder after all!! :)
The kids and adults had cute little party hats also from the Honey Bee party Collection, and they were a real party talking point.
Just use elements that you also already have at home, and keep to the colour scheme of yellow and polka dots and gingham for fabrics, textiles and napkins
