Bumble Bee Baby Shower Inspiration Board

Bumble Bee Baby Shower Inspiration Boards

Today’s post provides inspiration for throwing a bumble bee baby shower for the Mother to Bee and the soon arrival of the new bundle of joy that is as Sweet as can Bee! Typically most people will utilize a black and yellow color palette for this popular bumble bee theme, however I wanted to show you a couple inspiration boards for different color palettes: yellow and gray & yellow and brown!  You can even get fancy and use a variety of shades for each color i.e. charcoal gray and mustard yellow or dark brown and light yellow; add accent colors such as ivory, white, tan, gold, and silver; and/or add patterns and shapes such as chevron, circles, stripes, and floral. (Please bee kind and leave me a comment below letting me know which one is your favorite.)

Etsy Thursday: Bicycle Themed Wedding

Bicycle Themed Wedding Inspiration

I can’t begin to tell you how many amazingly creative and cute bicycle-themed wedding invitations I found on Etsy. So many that I had to cut myself off so that this post is 50 photos long and I decided that I will have to do a second post on bicycle-themed wedding inspiration. I love the vintage feel of the bicycle theme, the colors, and the font. I have put together a unique collection of Etsy wedding finds below that should provide inspiration for anyone considering a bicycle theme – you can incorporate a rustic, vintage-style, or modern bicycle theme.

Ideas for a Vibrant Summer Bridal Shower

Everyone LOVES weddings & so does 3D-Memoirs, but before you take the most anticipated walk down the aisle there’s a little celebratory event with close friends and family called the BRIDAL SHOWER!  Today, I have the honor of sharing some amazing invitation “eye-candy” from one of our favorite sites: Wedding Paper Divas!! I hope you are as excited as I am to see some of the creative & lovely bridal shower invitations that Wedding Paper Divas offers–a perfect personal touch for those DIY Bridal Showers!

To add to this “eye-candy”, I will be sharing a couple of DIY ideas (found across the web) to incorporate with these lovely Bridal Shower invitations! Ready for some Bridal Shower inspiration?


Bridal Shower Invitation from 

Bridal Shower Invitation {Freshly Festive : Basil}

Back of Bridal Shower Invitation {Freshly Festive: Basil}


Lovely vibrant punches of color makes this invitation perfect for a late Spring or Summer Bridal Shower. I am loving this fresh color scheme of soft mint punctuated with bright orange, yellow and cherry. A potential theme that comes to mind is “Summer Love” (or “Spring Love In Bloom” if you have it during the spring) and here are some DIY ideas to help you put this bridal shower together.


Bridal Shower Food & Drinks

For this “Summer Love” Bridal Shower a simple, light, & refreshing meal would be ideal. Here are some wonderful menu & drink options, courtesy of some of my favorite Pinterest pins!

Here is a sample health-conscious menu: finger sandwiches (pick your favorite meat(s) & bread(s) or offer a variety), veggie tray, mixed greens salad (add blueberries, strawberries, blackberries/raspberries) tossed with a light fruit vinaigrette, and these lovely fruit kebabs!

Fruit Kebabs

Below you will find some of my favorite Pinterest pins for drinks & libations. Whether you choose to add alcohol or not, these tasty drinks will go perfect with your “Summer Love” Bridal Shower theme!

Pineapple Sangria

Low Country Lemonade (lemonade, peach schnapps & blue curaçao)

Sweet Basil Lemonade (non-alcoholic)

Summer Pineapple Strawberry Cooler (Rum is optional)


To add to the summery charm, don’t forget to add colorful straws wrapped with the bridal shower details.

Colorful Paper Straws


Bridal Shower Decor

Make a crepe paper backdrop, perfect to display behind the food/dessert table or as a funbackdrop for photos with the Bride.

Crepe Paper Backdrop (featured by DIY Weddings Magazine)


Hang colorful paper lanterns and/or honeycomb tissue balls (see below) around the house/backyard/venue to decorate your event space with color. Use varying sizes, shapes, & patterns of orange, yellow, pink, white/creme, red, turquoise, & mint green to match the Wedding Paper Divas invitation!


Orange Paper Lantern

Yellow Nylon Hanging Lantern

Begonia Red Paper Lantern

White Honeycomb Ball


It would be amazing if you could score mint green tablecloths to compliment the Wedding Paper Divas’ Bridal Shower invitation, but I realize that it is probably a difficult color to come across. Whether you rent linens or buy paper/plastic tablecloths I would recommend white, yellow, or ivory and utilize your decor to bring in the colorful elements.


For your table centerpieces, a simple touch of flowers will add a elegant element to this summer Bridal Shower. Here are a few simple yet beautiful examples of centerpieces that you can incorporate:

Colorful Gerbera Daisies

This lovely centerpiece combines colorful Gerbera Daisies in a tall vase lightly filled with rocks. The pop of color from the flowers and simplicity of the centerpiece definitely adds an elegant touch to your bridal shower decor.

DIY Floral Centerpieces {Featured by Hostess With The Mostess}

This beautiful DIY centerpiece by Geranium Lake (featured on Hostess with the Mostess) is a simple and lovely centerpiece for a “Summer Love” Bridal Shower. Select beautiful & colorful wrapping paper to wrap around cylinder vases and/cans and add a beautiful trim with a complimentary ribbon. (You can probably substitute the wrapping paper for colorful fabric or layered tissue paper.)

Fruit Centerpiece

Pick bright fruits that compliment this Wedding Paper Divas Bridal Shower invitation–strawberries, lemons, oranges, cherries–and fill (at varying heights) a couple vases for each table and add a few colorful flowers, rocks, gems/beads to the vase and VIOLA!


Loving the look of these mint to light green succulents in silver dishes as a centerpiece!

LOVE Flower Centerpiece

These monogrammed mugs filled with flowers make for beautiful centerpieces. Use bright and colorful flowers, or stick with white flowers if you have enough color infused throughout the room. If you don’t have these crafty mugs to use, simply substitute them for colored/painted pots, tin cans, or bark wrapped vases.


Bridal Shower Favors

For your guests favors, you can either fill a mini pillow pack with red hots (hearts) or a daisy favor box with colorful candy and personalize the label with “Summer Love is so Sweet” or the Bridal Shower details (date, bride’s name, etc)!

I hope you didn’t overdose on all the sweetness from the *eye-candy* provided above! What are your thoughts on Wedding Paper Divas lovely Bridal Shower invitation, the “Summer Love” theme, and the DIY details that I’ve shared with you? In addition to this lovely bridal shower invitation, Wedding Paper Divas offers a variety of several other creative and beautiful bridal shower invitations for you to choose from, here are a few of my favorites:
