The birds and the bees have done what they do best and now a new mom is waiting for her precious bundle of joy. Why not tailor the shower to one of the best baby animals around: The bumble bee? The new bee baby shower collection from Kate Aspen is coming soon and it has all you need to plan and decorate the event like a master. Get ready for some seriously "bee"-autiful decor featuring honeycomb designs and a gorgeous buttery yellow color scheme.
1. Invitation Bundle
Every good party starts with the invitation. Show off the bee theme right from the start. This invitation bundle features a pretty yellow honeycomb design.
Fill in the details for the bee-themed baby shower and mail these invitations off to all of your guests.
But it isn't just invitations that come in the bundle. Stick in these cards inside the invitation asking for kids' books in lieu of cards or if they want to try the diaper raffle.
2. Shower Supplies
As you prepare your menu for the bee baby shower--no doubt utilizing a lot of honey!--you'll need items for the place settings. Check out these plates and napkins all fitting the pretty bee theme. The plates come in multiple sizes to fit every meal type.
For the main meal, whether seated and served or buffet-style, hand out these large premium paper plates. They feature a delicate honeycomb design with little flying bees.
Stack these smaller "Sweet as Can Bee" papers on your dessert table.
Of course, you need matching napkins. These "Sweet as Can Bee" napkins match the theme perfectly.
3. Shower Games & Advice for the Mommy-To-Bee
You can't have a baby shower without some fun shower games. We've got that covered, too. Put some Honeycombs cereal in a glass jar, the more the better, and have guests guess how many are inside. Hand out a fun gift for whoever guesses closest to the actual number. You could even have a premium gift if anyone guesses it spot-on.
While guests mill about or eat their food, they can fill out these advice cards. With prompts like "Always..." and "I hope you..." the parents-to-be will have plenty of advice and well-wishes on their new journey.
As guests enter your bee-themed baby shower, hand them a gift that shows your appreciation for their attendance. If you have a small DIY gift in mind, like some candies or jewelry, pop them in these favor boxes. They have the "Sweet as Can Bee" theme matching the tableware.
If you're stumped for a baby shower gift, try these "Bee Happy" trinket dishes. So cute!
5. Guest Book Alternative
Guest books are a great way to look back on an event and remember all the people who were there to help you celebrate. Rather than a boring blank book, try this guest book alternative. Guests fill out a honeycomb-shaped pieces of wood with their names and slip them into the matching frame.
6. Thank You Notes (Part of the Invitation Bundle)
Remember the invitation bundle you used to let guests know about the baby shower details? That bundle also comes with matching thank you notes to fill out once the party is over. Keep a list of guests and what gift they brought so you can thank each one of them personally.
