This adorable Birds and the Bees Baby Shower is from Anne-Marie from Elianna Noelle Events. She is an amazing party planner and I just love all of the creative things she did with this baby shower! She combined a bee theme with a bird theme to make a “Life begins with the birds and the bees” theme that is so precious and unique.
In The Spotlight:
- Diaper cakes with a bird feeder & next + one with a beehive in coordinating colors and ribbons
- Adorable bird cage, nest and bird cake pops + beehive, bee, and flower cake pops
- Tiny “Baby” and “Boy” bunting cut in beehive shape and with honeycomb paper
- Wishes for Baby with birds cut from cardstock then tied on ribbon for the mommy to be
Anne-Marie from Elianna Noelle Events tells us “For quite some time I have wanted to do a bee themed event. So when I was asked by a client to event decorate for her best friends baby shower who is also a client, I figured out a way to incorporate the bees.
Life begins with the Birds and the Bees; therefore how apropos to have a birds and the bees baby shower for a first time mommy! It’s a theme I haven’t seen created using both the birds and bees in this way. I loved the challenge of brainstormjng how to be innovative in an artistic, soft, yet masculine to welcome a precious baby boy. The inspiration for this event came from the infamous lyrics, “Lets talk about the birds and the bees and the flowers and the trees, and the moon and the stars… ” I remember hearing it in my father’s car on his 60s radio station as a little girl…quite nostalgic! From there I started my research and to my delight came across this stitching. This photo was the initial inspiration for the invitation and backdrop. We tweaked it to its final design by incorporating all the elements from the classic song. Rachael from printed Ink was incredible in collaborating with me to create this one of a kind design!
In effort to create harmony between both elements on the table scape, I decided to focus the left half of the table on the birds and the right on the bees. The decor, desserts, onesie banner, and the backdrop were designed to mirror this concept as well.
It was a tedious task finding bee skeps; however, on an errand to buy dog food at the local pet store, I inadvertently found these in the cat aisle. Who’d a thought?! And they were a fraction of the online prices. Score!! I cut out a circle using felt attached the bees from Michaels and there we have a bee hive.
The cake pops were created by KM Cake Pops. She truly is talented in her artistry! What an amazing job matching the decor and I displayed them in a way that complimented the flow of the table. They sat on ceramic bird stands that once again tied the elements in. Notice the stars and moon on the bird cage cake pop.
Sugarmama’s Chocolates made the Honeycomb pattern oreo’s which sat on the grass with a bee sugar lay. I couldn’t have been happier with the color and technique.
Dania’s Cake baked the adorable coordinating cookies and cake as I had requested. She mirrored the image of the invite for the cake. The favor tags for the birds read “About to Hatch” and the bee tags read, “Mommy to Bee.” Once again, you’ll see the moon and stars in the design on tags.”
