Throw a shower everyone will be buzzing about with a Bumble Bee themed baby shower! The color scheme offers a unique twist to humdrum pink and blue decorations, and the gender-neutral colors are perfect for a reveal party. Coordinating even the smallest details is easy with the selection of tableware and decorations Birthday Direct offers, and is what makes party-planning fun!
Throwing a shower, whether for a friend or on your own, can be stressful; but it doesn’t have to be! With a bumble bee theme, you have a simple color scheme to stick to, and with a little creativity, you can easily coordinate your decorations. Let’s start with the basics: tableware.
Plates, napkins, and cups are essentials at your shower, and mix and matching patterned and solid colored tableware will make an impact. If the shower is intimate, put in a bit more effort with your place settings. Create bold ones by layering lunch plates, dessert plates, and napkins, and finishing off with a cup to the side. If you’ve got a larger group, save your creative ideas for the buffet table. The products below are functional and visually appealing!
Having enough cutlery on hand is important and we made it easy with our yellow 8 piece setting that matches the plates and napkins. A table cover not only pulls together all of your decorations, it also protects surfaces and makes clean-up a breeze!
Now that you have your essentials covered, dressing up the food table is the next step for your shower. Try filling tall glass jars with striped paper straws or with colorful candies and placing on the table. Add a playful touch by scattering tissue sunflowers and confetti along the table!
Make typical party foods fit the theme by adding honey! You could serve chicken fingers with honey mustard, have honey-glazed nuts to snack on, or divide up honey buns into bite-size portions for the dessert table.
Coordinating food with the color scheme is easy, too! Lemonade’s sunny hue will blend right in, and adding food coloring to icing will make your desserts pop! Try cake pops, white chocolate pretzel sticks, bee-shaped cookies, or cupcakes in tones of yellow and gold! Bake cupcakes in coordinating cupcake liners, and set up a cupcake display in the middle of your table. We love the idea of placing them on these doilies so they pop against the table cover.
Add visual height to your party by incorporating balloons, lanterns, and customizable party banners! You could say “Momma to Bee” or “What’ll It Bee?” for a gender reveal party; or hang the banner behind the dessert table and say “Sweet Treats”.
A fun and practical decoration to set out on tables are these adorable Bumble Bee Diaper Cakes, which come with 23 premium diapers and an adorable stuffed bear!
Creating a bee hive lantern is super easy, and will look great hanging behind tables. Find the tutorial here.
To wrap up the shower, send the guests home with a little token to show your gratitude. Arrange a basket of jars filled with honey for a sweet touch! Or, you could fill treat bags (in coordinating colors) with small treats, like chocolate candies and nuts, and pass one out to each guest!
