Inspiration for this buzzworthy birthday party theme came when Sarahs nephew, Max, was stung by a bee a few months earlier. He became obsessed with bees, and a bee day seemed an appropriate pick for a party!
Utilizing her new backyard, Sarah styled a gorgeous celebration underneath a large, white party tent. Jumbo balloons from Balloonaway Broadmeadow and yellow and black bunting from Sweet and Styled dressed up the tent and provided an attractive welcome to the festivities.
Underneath the tent, Sarah set a darling table for guests to enjoy refreshments. Each place setting was decked out with a black and white striped paper plate, layered with a yellow and white polka dotted plate and topped off with a striped take-out favor box. How delightful are the little balloons tied to each handle? Sweet party hats, with little bees, accented each place. Individual name cards helped identify every guests spot. And just when you think the table cant get any cuter, you notice the cheery yellow chairs round out each spot (table and chairs from Central Coast Newcastle Party Hire).
A black and white striped, scalloped fabric awning provided such an attractive backdrop for bee themed treats on the darling dessert table! The bee day banner on the front was such a simple and charming way to tie in the theme.
Sarah displayed the appealing sweets atop cake stands and striped bowls from Robert Gordon Pottery. Dont you just love the beehive cake with the sweetest little bees hovering on top? Get Frosted did an amazing job creating it and coordinating the darling bee cupcakes.
If you are more of a cookie person, you would have loved the bee cookies by MaR-Valicious BiteS. Each one looked perfectly delicious!
Donuts with a hint of yellow were served up opposite vibrant skewers of pineapple and blueberries.
Yellow treat cups were filled with chocolates and Oreo cookiesperfect snack-size portions for little hands.
Even the candy selections were dressed in party colors!
Thirsty guests could find refreshing lemonade at the beverage station under a second striped awning. A coordinating, printable banner hung on the table front, honoring the birthday boys. Striped straws, napkins and polka dotted cups were on hand for easy thirst quenching and refills.
For fun, Sarah arranged some kid-friendly games, including Bee, Bee, Stinger in lieu of Duck, Duck, Goose. There was also a bee treasure hunt with bee chocolates and a bee piñata. Guests played Pass the Parcel and won bee themed prizes. And always a party favorite, Sarah arranged for Danielle Whiting to paint faces!
What a captivating party theme for two little boys! Dare I say it was sweeter than honey?!
