Today I’m here to share all the details of the Bride to Bee themed bridal shower that I hosted for Sarah this weekend.
Let’s start out with some of the decor. I used my old door chalkboard to do a little bee chalk art! I found the cute, vintage style apron at Marshall’s and tied it to the hooks on the door. Not only did it add a bit of whimsy to the decor, but it was an additional gift for the bride!

The fabric bunting was so easy to make using patterned quilt fabric. I love that this colorful bunting doesn’t scream bridal shower so it can be used for other parties!
I had several of Josh and Sarah’s engagement photos enlarged to 18″ x 24″ black and white poster prints at Staples. Then I purchased sheets of foam core board at The Dollar Tree and wrapped the prints around the foam core board and taped them on the reverse. We placed the prints around the space and it made a big impact for a small price!
We had a little candy and snack bar with yellow gum balls, yellow butter mints, lemon drops, and a Honey Crunch Snack Mix.
ingredients for the Honey Crunch Snack Mix
1 box Honey Comb cereal
1 can butter toffee peanuts
1 bag vanilla yogurt covered raisins
Of course, we had other typical shower foods, in addition to all of the sweets snacks. And, for dessert I made these adorable bee hive cupcakes. I used a lemon cake recipe with a lemon glaze. Aren’t they so cute!
Another thing that I just had to purchase for the shower is this bee hive shaped beverage dispenser! I saw it at TJ Maxx one day and quickly put it in my cart! I used it to serve water with fresh lemon slices.
