A Ba-BEE Shower!

We hosted a baby shower for a co-worker who is set to have their first baby in August.  Marcy is a bee keeper in her spare time so we decided to use bees as our theme.

Justina, Susan and I worked together and I think we did a wonderful job!

We started off with our invitations.  I purchased the digital paper from Burlap and Lace on Etsy and printed it off on cardstock.  Then I designed the front card piece in Word and attached everything with Glue Dots.  Added a Jolene's bee sticker that Justina found on the front to let everyone know that this party was going to be a surprise.

I also made Marcy a Mom-to-Bee badge to wear during the shower.

Susan made this bee-u-tiful diaper cake that we used as the table centerpiece. She was nervous at first because she had never attempted a diaper cake before but we all thought she did a great job on it.  The Jolene's stickers were added here too to top it all off on our bee theme.

I used the same digital paper pack along with alphas from Crazy 4 Monograms and Just So Scrappy to make a Welcome Ba-Bee banner.  I found larger Jolene's bee stickers at Michaels to add more bees in case anyone was missing the theme!

Susan made us some delicious lemonade and added lemons and mint leaves.  I could have drank all of this myself.

Justina decorated the table with a yellow tablecloth, black and white polka-dot napkins and black and white paper straws.  (I LOVE paper straws!)  Justina also had a friend make these cute bee cupcake toppers.  This was such a sweet decoration!

Everything was beautiful and the Mom-to-Bee had a wonderful time and enjoyed the surprise.  Now we can't wait to see this beautiful Ba-Bee!

Linking up to the following linky parties.

Kindergarten Graduation 2014

I finally got around to looking at the picture CD that came with Bean's kindergarten graduation picture package.

My heart just seized up!
