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!

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.
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!
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.
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.
