If you’re planning an upcoming bridal shower for the special bride-to-be, why not make it a little more unique with a bee-themed celebration? A bee themed bridal shower is a great way to add a unique twist to this classic event. From decorations and activities to delicious treats and drinks, there are plenty of ways to incorporate honey bees into your bridal shower fun! With the right decorations and activities, you can create a buzzworthy, sweet event that the bride-to-be will love. Get creative ideas by checking out our collection of bee-themed bridal shower ideas below!

An easy way to kick of your bridal shower planning is by picking out an adorable bee bridal shower invitation and setting the date for your bee party event.

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!

Bride to Bee Shower with Old Door Chalkboard

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! 

​But if you really wanted to stick to the bee theme for each aspect of the decor, you can make your own pennant banner with your favorite fabric that has bees on it. 

Bride to Bee Shower with Vintage Decor

An easy way to decorate the shower is to take some of the engagement photos of the couple, or just cute pictures of the couple if they didn’t have an engagement photography session and enlarge them to 18″ x 24″ black and white poster prints at Staples.  

Then purchase sheets of foam core board at The Dollar Tree and wrap the prints around the foam core board and tape them on the reverse.  Then you can place the prints around the space and make a big impact for a small price! Again, this piece fo decor can end up being little gifts for the bride to bee!

Bride to Bee Shower Candy and Snack Bar

We had a little candy and snack bar with yellow gum balls, yellow butter mints, lemon drops, and a Honey Crunch Snack Mix.

All things to snack on that go with the bridal shower decor- bees and honeycombs. 

Ingredients for the Honey Crunch Snack Mix

  • 1 box Honey Comb cereal
  • 1 can butter toffee peanuts
  • 1 bag yellow M & M’s
  • 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!

They were such a nice touch to add to the dessert table for the big day.

Here’s a similar pan to the one that I used to make them.  

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.

Hive Shaped Drink Dispenser
I’ve never been able to find another one like this in green glass.  But, here is a similar dispenser with clear glass that will give the same bumble bee vibes for your wedding shower.
The “Bride to Bee” sat in this vintage wicker peacock chair as she opened her gifts!  I found this vintage eyelet dress at a local antique store and thought it would be great to incorporate into the decor for the shower!

I used these dried wildflowers to make a bouquet and also an arrangement in this painted tin bucket.  The little, white Bible is the one that my Mom carried the day she was married.

love is sweet’ candy bar game

And, what’s a bridal shower without games?  We played a fun game called “Love is Sweet”.  Because we didn’t use tables at the shower, I needed something that guests could write on.  So, I purchased 12 x 12 pieces of kraft paper chipboard at Michaels (found with the other 12 x 12 scrapbook paper).  I cut each one into fours.  Then, I attached my game paper to each piece with a paper clip.  And, you can see that I folded the game sheet up so no one could get a head start!  
Love is Sweet Game Sheet
I purchased the candy on the answer sheet below and arranged it on a wicker tray.  I had the “Bride to Bee” tell the guests what candies were on the tray and then I walked the tray around the room a few times, so the guests could get more looks at the different candies.

Everyone seemed to really like this game and then I left the candy for the groom!  Here are the game sheets that you can download and print.

And, lastly, I had a few close friends help me with this shower.  To show my appreciation, I purchased a large yellow mum for each of them (the shower was held in the fall).  And, then attached this “Thank You” tag to a dowel rod that I inserted into the plant’s soil.

Still need some ideas for your bee bridal shower? Here are some ideas that I thought would be great but didn’t get to incorporate into our bride to bee bridal shower. 

Ideas for Bridal Shower Party Favors 

– Bee honey scented honeycomb soap. You can make this yourself or you can purchase some online. Etsy is a good place to look for more favors or you can check your local area to see if anybody can make some for you

– Get little mason jars and fill them with local honey and give each guest a honey jar as a thank you. 

– Make some lip balms and use beeswax 

– Find some little flower pots that look like bee hives and add some cute yellow and white flowers or other fresh flowers to the pots


What can I see, I’m a details person!  I hope you can use some of these “Bride to Bee” themed shower ideas for a shower you might want to host!

How to Make a Fabric Banner that Won't Fray - Hymns and Verses

Monday 20th of June 2016

[…] That’s it!  Of course, if you like to sew, you can sew your own seam into your fabric before applying the Heat n Bond.   I am going to be making more of these pennants for an outdoor July 4th picnic and string some lights with them!   These pennant banners are really great to use at any party – just choose fabrics that go with your theme.  I used one like at the bridal shower I held for Sarah a few years ago.  You can see it HERE.
