Bumble BEE Party

My daughter’s 3rd birthday party was this past Saturday.  Photos taken by my friend, Paula Stiller Photography.  I’m sad to report she is moving to Colorado in 2 weeks, but if you live there you will be blessed to have her!  Check out her blog HERE.

Invite designed by the TomKat Studio.  Thank you Kim!  They are perfect!
Instead of party hats, my friend Jennifer and I made bumble bee antennas for the kids.  I set up a small black table by the front door.  Our little guests had to grab one before walking in the house.  



  The “SWEETS” table was inspired by Amy Atlas Events.


I loved how the lollipop tree turned out!


Personalized chocolate candy bars by DDH Favors.


I made the “SWEETS” banner to match…


My crafty mom made these bumble bee centerpieces for all the tables.  She has opened her own etsy store now.  You can see it HERE.
Food, drinks, cups, plates, etc….
Party circles for the napkins came from the TomKat Studio 🙂


I made the “Happy BEE-Day Honey” banner.  We happen to call our daughter “Honey” so it was perfect!!!


I also made the party circles you see on the left hanging on the big log…they read:
One of my good friends, Jennifer drew this on a piece of wood so we could take photos of the kids.  It turned out SOOOOOOOO much better than the original I had seen. Thank you Jen!
The piñata is from this etsy shop: Party House Pinatas
I made a “Queen Bee” crown for my birthday girl! 


Cake table….. WOW!!  This was so much fun to put together 🙂  I made the table runner and is available in my etsy shop as well.
My girls eating marshmallow pops :):):)


 You noticed the glittery #3 sitting there?  I made that too and will be selling these too.


I also made these super cute bumble bees that were hanging above the cake table…

  I hired this super sweet girl to draw “bee” tattoos on the kids…it was fun for them!


We played the “Pin the bee on the beehive” game….
My little honey blowing the candles…..


People always ask “where should we put the gifts?”.  I thought it’d be good to add a sign on the table and here it is!


The kids got a paper polka dot bag before they left.  The girls bags had a little polka dot bow attached to them.
 I made the thank you cards with tags from the TomKat Studio…
The inside of the card reads:
“Thank you  for bee-ing at my birthday party.  It was the beest birthday ever. I also thank you for my special gift!  Mommy and daddy are glad you came too.  It was fun bee-ing with all my friends!  XOXO Hannah”


Here’s just the 4 of us 🙂
 Thank you for visiting!  I hope you are inspired to throw a bee-utiful birthday party!
