Beehive Centerpiece

Adding beehive centerpieces is a cute and festive way to continue decorating for your theme. You can create DIY beehive centerpieces or purchase one on Etsy or Amazon. You can make your beehive centerpieces realistic looking, or you can use tissue paper versions!

If you want to incorporate your bee theme in a different way, there are plenty of creative options!

  • Create your own honeycombs! Incorporate hexagonal patterns into your decor to create DIY honeycombs.
  • Rustic decor fits great with a bee theme. Use oak barrels, mason jars, and burlap to pull your centerpiece together.
  • Double down on dessert. A beehive cake, honeycomb cupcakes, or bumble bee cake pops can double as centerpiece, at least until your guests eat it!

Will It Bee Gender Game

Who Knows Mommy-To-Bee The Best

Who knows the mommy-to-bee the best? Create a list of trivia questions with topics related to the mom before your bee party. When it’s game time, ask these questions to your guests. Guests can record their answers on a piece of paper. The person who gets the highest number of correct answers is the winner.
