B is for . . .

In May, I'll be co-hosting a co-ed baby shower to celebrate the imminent arrival of bridesmaid B's daughter, who we've nicknamed Lil' B.

Naturally, a bee-themed shower is in the works.  But if Lil' B is anything like her mom, no literal black and yellow bee theme would do.  I'm thinking something along the lines of a sophisticated palette of yellow, gray, and white.

The gray and yellow palette of this shower is exactly the look I'm envisioning for Lil' B's party.  And I love the use of the graphic gray and yellow runner on the table; I'm going to search paper and fabric stores for a similar print for the runner and for cute flag garlands and circle mobiles.

I've been searching for the adorable honeycomb paper above: not only are the popcorn cones too adorable not to replicate, the honeycomb pattern is a chic way of incorporating the bee theme without being too bee-zy.

I adore these bumblebee sugar decorations.  They'd be so sweet on cupcakes or stuck on the rim of a martini glass.

This fab gray LOVE print would make a perfect focal point for the shower decor.  And since Lil' B is getting a fuschia, indigo, and gray nursery, the print can do double duty afterward as nursery decor too.

But this letterpress alphabet card would be just as lovely framed, no?

So many ideas!  Oh how I love party planning!  If only I could do this for a living . . . .

aww.. so refreshing. This reminds me that I don't have to incorporate every theme into my wedding. There will be other events. I'm loving these inspirations!

Thanks so much for sharing my letterpress alphabet card on your blog! I'm delighted to hear that you like it. :)

I love all your bee party inspiration. I'll have to check back for photos of the baby shower (I hope you do a follow up post!) as I'd love to link to it for my bee party ideas page on my website. Happy party planning!!
