What Will It Bee? Baby Shower Ideas

Buzz! Buzz!

Are you a gardener at all? I am, on a very small scale, as there is only so much I can fit on my little apartment porch. But one thing I always make keep in my little garden is a few butterfly friendly plants. Right now they are in FULL bloom and absolutely gorgeous. I’ve been spotting butterflies, bees and lots of little critters near those plants. It’s quite an active little pot!

The other day I was out watering and noticed several of those plump, round, bumble bees. They were so busy zooming here and there, I doubt they even noticed me, but they were my inspiration for this week’s event idea and inspiration board.

This baby shower was inspired by the nature loving mommy to be, that is excited about her baby, but may not be ready to reveal the gender just yet. Yellow is great for gender neutral baby showers, is bright and cheery for spring, but is also different from the normal baby blue or pinks that most baby showers lean towards.

If the mommy to be wanted to announce the gender of the baby at the party, she easily could with this theme!
Let’s take a look shall we:

Love Is Sweet – A Cocktails and Sweets Engagement Party

Have you heard the phrase “Love Is Sweet” before? As the rise of themed candy bars grows, so does the popularity of that saying!

Do a quick search for “Love Is Sweet Take A Treat” and you will get MILLIONS of picture results with every color candy bar imaginable. Crazy isn’t it?

I thought: why not take that theme, and go a little bit further?

This week’s inspiration board was for a young, recently engaged couple who are fun loving and want to celebrate their engagement with their family and friends.  They want a relaxed and fun environment where everyone can mingle and chat. So what better way to do that then to have a cocktails and sweet party?

Love Is Sweet – A Cocktails and Sweets Engagement Party

Everyone loves desserts and can’t resist a yummy drink. I went with a light blue, almost turquoise color, paired with a bronze for this idea board, but any color combo you choose would do.

A must have for this type of party is a signature drink, extra points if you can make it match one of your theme colors.

Another must is lots and LOTS of desserts. I tried to get a little of everything in, but the highlight of the evening will undoubtedly be the Ferrero Rocher inspired desserts.

If you REALLY wanted to run with this color scheme, you may want to take a trip to the thrift store. They often have odd mix and match glasses, and I bet you could probably pick up a few blue glasses for your guests to use. Don’t worry, they don’t all have to match, in fact, it’s almost better that way. Everyone will have their own unique glass, and they will help enhance the party’s décor! Win win!

The Beauty of Baby’s Breath at a Wedding

If the words “simple but elegant” describe your wedding aesthetic, then look no further then baby’s breath. This beautiful floral is just that. It can be incorporated into almost any facet of your wedding, is easy to work with, has a great price point, and more importantly: looks fantastic.

This week I decided to challenge myself to pick one flower type, and base an entire wedding around it. I wanted to choose something that I believe to be underused and underestimated. Baby’s breath fit the challenge!

Here is what I came up with for this challenge:
