Queen Bee Birthday Party

Queen Bee Birthday Bash
My Mother-In-Law always does so much for everyone. I saw this party idea on Silly Bee's Chickadee's blog. I have been waiting for a reason to re-create this great party with my own touches...
We celebrated her birthday with her girlfriends. I asked everyone to wear yellow (they thought it was her favorite color!), and I asked Kathy to wear either black, white or black and white...
The theme of the party was a surprise for everyone!
Sweet Table with "Bee" theme

Cupcakes were vanilla with cream cheese frosting.
I bought the edible sugared honey bees from amazon!

Honey Bears for for the guests to take home

Small jars with lemon drops for everyone!

Queen Bee Tiara (I actually found a light up flashing tiara for the Queen at Party City...She wore it all night!)

Her Throne

Bumble Bee Pinata
made from soccer ball pinata, covered with yellow yarn!
The inside was filled with Bit O'Honey candy...see later in the post

tissue paper flowers were everywhere! I went crazy with yellow tissue paper, I am addicted to them now!

Baby's Breath flowers with chenille bees, I found these on Amazon as well

Bee cookie jar, $4.00 on sale from Homegoods!

My favorite detail...
"Get Buzzed!"

Homemade Honey Lemonade was a hit, even better with Vodka!

This beer tastes great..."Honey Lager!"

These were our coursages

Birthday Girl!
After Dinner which was homemade Mac and Cheese (yellow!)
and salad with Honey, Balsamic, Dijon dressing...yummy
We had a trivia contest... after trivia questions that I found on line, I incorporated trivia questions about the birthday girl...a big hit!

presents included Burt's Bees Wax
and a Brighton Charm of a Bumble Bee

all of us in Yellow!

Queen Bee and Worker Bee

Pinata Time!

Take out all your aggressions on a Pinata!

Happy Birthday Kathy!
