babBEE baby shower

My friend Mallory's sister, Terra, is throwing a super-cutely themed baby shower all centered around bees.

She asked me to make the invitations...

Please ignore the blurs and blobs as I didn't want to post any of their personal information.

I just love these little bees...the Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details add the perfect amount of sparkle to the heart!

I hand curled all of the antennae for 30 bees...

And I hand sewed all of the loops using embroidery floss.

The problem with me is that I tend to take a theme and run with it! This whole weekend has centered around bees!

I decided to also make her some prototypes for other shower ideas.

I love Puppy Chow, no not the "real" Puppy Chow", the Chex kind (also called "Muddy Buddies"). Here is a twist...substitute peanut butter chips for the chocolate chips and pour over Honeycomb cereal and you have a bee-themed snack!

Have you ever seen the tissue paper pom poms? They are super easy to make, though I've always wondered why tissue is so expensive?! I made this one to look like a sunflower, rather than a ball.

How cute would a bunch of these be hanging about the cake table?

Up! has a great Bigz XL die in the mini devoted to making lollies...

And how precious are these little lollies?! They would be great to use to make a centerpiece for the cake/food table...

They are so easy to make and so cute too!

I made an envelope for a Burt's Bees lip balm to use as a prize for the shower games. Another Bigz die...the Petite Pocket.

And what about the parting gift? Glass test tubes decorated to go along with the theme...the back of the tag has a thank you from the shower hosts.

I thought this would be cute filled with wildflower seeds..."what will it be?"

So what do you think?! Are you hosting a baby shower (or any event) anytime soon? I can do any theme and work with any idea you have. I can be local for both Chicago and Cincinnati...and I can even ship items long distance if needed, which I've done in the past.
