DIY Mommy to BEE Baby Shower

DIY Bumble Bee Baby Shower

Baby showers are such a joyous occasion! The mother-to-be is pampered, showered with gifts, and surrounded by loved ones celebrating the highly anticipated arrival of a precious bundle of joy. Today’s featured DIY baby shower is so adorable, full of lovely DIY projects, and definitely the bees knees.

This DIY Bumble Bee baby shower was created with love by Joanna & Lydia for the mommy-to-bee who loves Bumble Bees and simple colors such as white, light gray and yellow. With simplicity, elegance, and a brunch in mind the planning duo found an awesome venue and went to work on creating the bumble bee inspired décor.

The classic, elegant centerpieces were styled with white hydrangeas and adorned with twine holding tiny bees wrapped around the vases. Little white frames held simply decorated table numbers. The favors on the table included mini honey jars and a bee muslin bag held the silverware.

The dessert table was a focal point containing giant letters spelling out BABY were made from foam board and tissue squares glued onto the letters. Adorable hand made poms made from white and yellow tissue paper were decoratively placed throughout the private room. The “It’s a Boy” bunting made from silver letters and different colored papers added to the bumble bee ambiance. Delectable treats like golden Oreos with yellow filling, bumble bee imprinted Oreo cookies with yellow filling, and homemade turtle pretzels with yellow and chocolate details and an edible Bee embellishment filled the dessert table.

The rest of the bumble bee decor included a fun baby shower bingo with a bee embellishment, a framed baby shower announcement, a creative guestbook (Mommy to Bee’s favorite childhood book), and a memorable game called “What should the Name Bee”. where the mommy-to-be selected her favorite name and the guest who wrote the name received a Burt’s Bee’s gift set as a prize.
