Bee Theme Party Ideas for Baby Showers

When it comes to baby showers (and even gender reveals) - a Bee Theme Party is a wonderful choice. It’s a fun way to celebrate the baby and mommy to be without using the traditional pink and blue colors.

Plus, when choosing the bee theme for baby showers - there’s so many fun phrases you can select from, including . . .
Mama to Bee
Mommy to Bee
Which Will It Bee? (perfect for a gender reveal)
Sweet as Honey
As Sweet as Can Bee

Here’s just a few fun bee theme party ideas I’ve gathered together to help you plan the sweetest bee themed baby shower. And, of course my very own Mommy to Bee Baby Shower confetti is included - this confetti mix comes complete with 8 hexagon die cuts (honeycombs) and 4 illustrated bee die cuts. These die cuts not only look great scattered around as table decor with the confetti - but they can be used for DIY toppers on the cake or cupcakes. Or maybe you add them to favor tags with mounting squares for extra dimension.

When it comes to bee themed baby shower invitations there’s many choices. And, of course a pretty bee wax seal from Half Pint Design is the best way to seal off the invitation for guests.
If choosing the bee theme for a gender reveal - you can have so much fun with stickers, magnets, etc and have guests choose “He” or “She” for “Which Will It Bee?” or “What Will It Bee?” Another option is to surprise your guests with a What Will It Bee Scratch Off Card from Simply Modern Design Co.

For decorations - you can’t forget about a Mom To Bee Banner from Sugar Parties LA and a What Will It Bee Cake Topper in glittery gold along with coordinating bumble bee cupcake toppers.

Free Halloween Party Invitation Printable with Glitter for a Fun Added Touch

Today I have a fun and free Halloween Party Invitation you can download and print for any "spooky" or "friendly ghost" parties you have planned this month. This file will have 2 invitations that come blank, ready for you to place in your party details. If you choose to, you can use a photo editing program to add in the when, where and rsvp details before printing. There are 2 invitations per page and you will simply trim at the black border once printed. These party invitations will fit into an A2 envelope size - I'm thinking bright orange envelopes would be the perfect choice.

One thing I love doing with invitations, is hand applying glitter. But, I have a trick that eliminates the messiness that often happens with glitter. I use acrylic paint that has glitter already in it. Easy painting, no glue involved and the best party . . . no glitter mess! My favorite glitter paint is Extreme Glitter in black by Folk Art. You can see the spider web detail below with the black glitter applied.

The invitation shown above was printed on an Epson XP-950 {it's wireless & has a scanner}

Halloween Party Invitations for the Little Ones

Are you planning to put together a fun Halloween Party for your little one{s}? If yes, you will love these invitations from Minted. For those that may not know, Minted features many independent designers and sells their best designs as stationery, wall art, and décor for the home, holidays, and occasions. The following Halloween Invitations are my favorites but what I love about Minted is how you can even change the shape of the invitation {rounded corners, scalloped edges and much more}. Some of the designs even offer coordinating party decor. And, of course, it's always fun to create some of your own decor. For example, I can totally envision cat silhouettes cut out of black paper and hole punched to be strung onto ribbon as a garland if using the Striped Cat invitation design.

Even though there's a month left of summer vacation, I'm still struggling with a work routine and getting my to-do list completed each day. Hence why this post is one day late.

DIY : Fresh Fruit Drink Stirrers + a Watermelon Printable Invitation

I've been seeing drink stirrers everywhere lately - so I figured why not create edible drink stirrers that your party guests {both kids and adults} will love. I only had watermelon and blueberries on hand this weekend - but the ideas and colors for this are endless. {think cantelope, honeydew, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, etc}. Simply cut the melon fruit into slices and then use a cookie cutter in the shape{s} of your choice. You could even use a melon baller if you wish. Berries wouldn't need any cutting. Bamboo skewers or plastic stirrers are great options to hold your fruit. Amazon has many choices for drink stirrers{and in colors} to choose from.

And, since you will need to send an invitation to have your guests over to celebrate, how about this brand new one I've added to my etsy shop? It's a print-at-home invitation that is available as an instand download. You simply purchase, download and print away. There's 4 invitations to a single 8.5x11 page, so if you only need 24 invitations - you only need to print 6 pages. You can even import the file into a photo editing program if you choose to type in the party details. Purchase your Summer Celebration Invitation Here and get ready to have lots of fun in the summer sun. And, remember, you don't necessarily need a specific reason to party. Even having family and friends over for a casual get together can be made even more exciting by sending an invitation via snail-mail.
