Busy Bees Bee Themed Party Ideas

Do you have a busy bee at home? Certain soon to be one year old who buzzes about the house, getting into everything and subsequently spreading it all throughout the house (the way a bee spreads pollen)? Are you wondering what sort of party to put together for them as you pack away the saucepans for the umpteenth time today? Think yellow, white, black. Fuzzy little bumble bees, flowers and sweet things and room for your busy bee to flit about with the other little bees.  Host a Bee Party!

Once you have sent out your Bee invitations, use the Pink Frosting online party store to kit out your hive for a fabulous first birthday party. Hang up yellow and white streamers, bee hanging cut-outs. Set the tables with yellow table covers and alternate the cutlery and crockery – with plain white and busy bee decorated plates, yellow cups and black crockery. In yellow pails, place a Styrofoam ball and push in lollipops to create a lollipop bouquet and bouquets of the vintage paper flowers to add a pop of colour. Display little honey cupcakes on the yellow stripe cupcake stands. Float yellow balloons secured to balloon weights/keepsakes. Along the tables set up honeycomb centre pieces. For the little ones, if you can, line up some children’s tables, covered with the bee table cloths for them to sit at to enjoy party nosh and toddler gossips. Ring in the party with a cute number one birthday cake, frosted with white icing, green edible glitter and decorated with little piped on bumble bees, sugar flowers and yellow candles.

If you are serving cupcakes (great for little hands), set them in these cute yellow and white flower eyelet baking cups. Keep the party food sweet, simple and healthy. At that age, they really can’t tolerate heavily sugared foods (and it isn’t wise to feed it to them) and they don’t eat large portions, so keep the menu choices to toddler friendly size. I really love the portion cups. Using Pink Frosting’s white and yellow portion cups serve up banana and vanilla yogurt, pumpkin and sweet corn, and creamy cheese polenta. Have plates of sandwiches – vegemite, jam, egg and cheese. Have a platter of cut up soft fruit, vegetables, rissoles, chicken and vegetable rolls. Make sure you peel them and cut them in a way to avoid the little ones choking, the baby num num rice crackers and the soft cheese sticks along with tzatziki and beetroot dips. The kids will also love the mango, pineapple and orange ice blocks. Your toddler no doubt loves to play with their food, so finger food is the best option as they eat and play and it also frees up the parents to have a bite to eat as they don’t have to sit and spoon feed. All of these options are easy to make and will prove popular with the children (and mums and dads will appreciate the healthy options). For the grown-ups you may want to sneak in some honeycomb chocolates, crushed and sprinkled over little cups of honeycomb flavoured ice cream.

To keep your little bees busy and happy, have a section set up with secured play pen, play mats and toys for the children to wander over and play with whilst the grown-ups can sit close by, but relax too. Keep the kids music playing and the party will run smoothly (allowing for the odd temper tantrum) and you will be thanking and farewelling your guests with a cute little funky felt bag filled with lollies, a balloon (or two) and a bumble bee thank you card – and all before nap time!
