Queen Bee Birthday Party
“We nicknamed our third baby “the Queen” because of the way she commands the room, even with her two siblings running wild around her. Those eyebrows could stop an army I am telling you! So a “Queen Bee” themed party seemed to be the perfect fit for her! Not to mention an easy way to suck up to my father in law who is a beekeeper himself.
As always, I jumped online to gather some inspiration. I loved the more classic, bee themed parties and decided to go that route. Invitations by ChiccDesigns on Etsy was my first purchase.
Cake, Food and Sweets:
Then of course the cake! I contacted a local bakery and they made the beautiful buttercream beehive cake. It was perfection. I tried to keep things simple as I had limited space to work wth and only a few party guests, so I decorated one main table with some odds and ends from Target, Party City and Hobby Lobby. I decided to keep my food simple as well and did made to order grilled cheese and Panera tomato soup. I have a tradition of making my girls’ birthday party outfits so I snatched up this adorable fabric from Spoonflower and ended up having enough leftover to make pieces for my other two children to match as well. With a little help from Pinterest and allrecipes.com I faked my way through some sugar cookies and French macarons.
I snatched up some “honey” themed items from World Market for the gift bags (all for adult family members) and called it a day! It was perfectly simple and cute. A perfect party for the little Queen Bee.”
