Bumble Bee Baby Shower - Recap and Pictures

This past Saturday, I hosted a bumble bee baby shower for one of my best friends Laura who is expecting a baby boy on April 25th. I had been planning this shower since January and wanted all of the details to come together and match the adorable bumble bee theme. I had posted several ideas on the inspiration board on Pinterest and used several of these ideas throughout the shower. 

The shower started with this adorable invitation designed on Tiny Prints.

The menu consisted of carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting, chocolate oreos filled with yellow cream, pretzels dipped in yellow chocolate, mini bags of kettle corn, and these adorable yellow burst cake mix cookies.

These adorable mason jars with yellow and grey striped straws were available for lemonade or ice water and these bottled waters were wrapped with yellow scrapbook paper and Lemondrop Twine from The Twinery. 

The favor bags were filled with a variety of yellow candies and a packet of sunflower seeds to be planted when the baby is born. 

We played a fun game called 'what's in your purse' where the ladies had to search for 15 different items in their purses and whoever had the most points won a fun little gift set of Burt's Bee Products.

I also put together cards called 'wishes for baby' and each guest wrote down some wishes they have for Laura's soon to arrive little bundle of joy. You can use this template for ideas and then make your own design on your computer.

The shower was great and Laura enjoyed every bit of it. I love when a party comes together and the bumble bee theme was one of my favorites!
