Bee Baby Shower

Today's post centers around a Bee Baby Shower! I started by selecting this sweet invitation by simplyput (from FineStationery.com). I love the cute simplicity of the card paired with the polka dot liner.

Set your table with a white tablecloth paired with a runner in a pattern such as this yellow 'Bee de Lys' fabric. I chose this fabric because it presents a beautiful combination of a sophisticated bee image and the classic fleur de lis. Place clear serving dishes with molded bee images atop the runner. Serve your food selections on these yellow and white bee dishes to complete a perfectly coordinated table.

Try making and decorating cupcakes similar to these bee cupcakes. Create the hive with yellow buttercream frosting and place bees made of chocolate covered raisins and sliced almonds on top. Send your guest home with a few of these bee-adorned petits fours.

I didn't actually purchase it, just saw it online at kaboodle: http://www.kaboodle.com/reviews/bee-de-lys--yellow. Good luck with your search!
