Please Note:

From 2011-2016, we had an inspiration blog featuring nurseries, baby showers, parties, and portraits that were submitted to us by photographers, designers, and parents. We no longer accept submissions or post new blog content, but we have left the archive here for those who have saved this content, or for new readers looking for inspiration.

Backyard Bee Themed Baby Shower

Inspired by her father-in-law’s beekeeping, this expecting mom Erica decided to make bees the theme of this darling backyard baby shower barbeque. Erica had a lot of great ideas for the shower, but brought in Emily Elizabeth Events to help her create the overall vision and all the little details. They opted for a gender neutral palette of yellow, turquoise, and green for a more modern look, but brought in lots of shabby chic details, making the whole shower very warm and cozy. Some of the DIY details created by Emily and Erica included fabric streamers, glass bottle and daisy centerpieces, chalkboard labels, rolled napkins, and guestbook baby libs.

Guests enjoyed BBQ classics along with their beverage choice of lemonade, sangria, beer, or wine, and then had their fill of the dessert buffet. For some extra yummy fun, Doozies Mini Donuts provided a smoothie station, chocolate fondue and dipping ingredients, as well as a mini donut station with donuts were made to order! So fun! As favors they also took home bottle-shaped chocolates and bee and hive cookies made by Erica’s aunt and then decorated by Erica and some girlfriends. Jennifer Davis Photography captured all the lovely details and you can see more in the full gallery!
