We had good food, good humor and good company.
I have written before about my uncle's beekeeping hobby, and what a big part of my childhood it was. My sister was my uncle's biggest helper, she was always by his side, asking to understand what he was doing and to help. Needless to say that just like me she has a soft-spot for honey and bees.
So of course, our theme for this party was....you guesses it! Bees!! As in "Mother to Bee" or "Baby to Bee".
I had a lot of fun putting together decorations and researching ideas for the party. I chose a happy, yellow theme, with flowers and happily buzzing bees (not real ones of course). I set up an improvised photo-booth, for us to make silly faces, we had outfits for my sister, her daughter and the new baby, created by a very talented friend of hers, an adorable diaper cake and tons of gifts. Since this is an incredibly talented bunch of ladies, another friend made this incredible bee-hive cake which tasted as good as it looked.
In my house , no celebration is complete without a hand-knit gift, so I made this for the new baby.
Next post I have to tell you about our activity, it was the most fun thing I have done in a long time.
