The bee baby shower theme usually focuses on the honey bee, so we see a lot of flowers, honey, honeycomb, and bee decor incorporated throughout the event.
Think of decor in natural shades of yellow, brown, and neutral, along with hexagon shapes in reference to honeycomb.
The bee baby shower blends beautifully with the boho baby shower theme with its natural elements and neutral color scheme.
When you plan for a theme like this, you usually incorporate clever wording on the invitation, favors, and banners. These sayings can pull everything together. Here are a few ideas for bee baby shower wording:
- A Little Honey is on the Way
- Mama to Bee
- Have You Heard to Buzz?
- Sweet as Can Bee
- What Will it Bee?
- Babee Shower
Theme Color Scheme
The most obvious color choice is yellow for a bee-themed party, but you can change it up from the traditional bright yellow and focus more on muted or light yellows mixed with neutral tones.
Another idea I personally love is playing off the idea of honey. Consider rich shades of amber and light browns mixed with creamy whites. This is the perfect way to incorporate boho elements into your bee baby shower.
I also love the idea of pops of dark green along with neutrals to play off this theme’s earthy vibe.
Bee Baby Shower Invitations
This is such a beautiful bee baby shower invitation. I love how its main focus is on the flowers with a few bees surrounding them. It really has a feminine touch that I love.
This Mommy to Bee invitation set is gorgeous. I love the incorporation of honeycomb and sunflowers. It also comes with a diaper raffle card, thank you card, and a book request card.
Bee Baby Shower Decor Ideas
Your baby shower decor is how you’ll bring everything together.
Your tablescape will at least include a centerpiece, but you can add in other touches such as a place setting, napkins, name signs, favors, table runners, and more.
Let’s unpack this tablescape because it is stunning.
Between the rattan chargers and the wood slice name plates, this table setting brings a beautiful natural feel to the table.
The mustard yellow napkins add a perfect touch of color while remaining in a nature-like color scheme. In the background, you can see vases of sunflowers as the centerpiece, which bring it all together.
This tablescape features a stunning table runner of rope “beehives” and greenery. Any table runner will really pack a punch in your tablescape.
Gahh, this is my favorite because I love the simplicity of it. The beeswax nameplates are so beautiful. I love how well they pair with the vases of flowers. You could even use baby breath in the vases for a more budget-friendly idea.
Here is another example of using a set table for your baby shower. The chargers are a natural rattan, which brings the table together.
If there is one decorative element you should include on every table, it’s definitely a centerpiece. It doesn’t have to match the theme exactly. You can have centerpieces that accent the theme, whether in color or style.
Here’s an example of how a centerpiece can accent the theme beautifully without making it match the theme exactly. I love the simple use of flowers and boho elements in this vase.
These jute beehives are adorable and make the perfect centerpieces for the mommy-to-bee theme!
Here’s another gorgeous idea! Add bee and honey spoon sprays in a floral vase to add the bee element in your centerpieces.
Banners + Signs
Definitely consider adding banners and signs to the decor of your baby shower. It’s a really inexpensive and easy way to bring the theme together.
Place a welcome sign to greet guests as they enter the venue. The wording on the above welcome sign is adorable:
“Have you heard the buzz? A little honey is on the way! Soon to bee a family of three.”
Another popular place to put banners and signs is at the dessert table. Consider adding a “sweet as can bee” or “mama to bee” banner above it.
You can also find bee-themed bunting to bring everything together.
Balloon Arch Focal Points
Balloon arches are a great way to make a statement in a focal area of the event space.
Usually, the focal area is where the mama-to-be sits and opens gifts. Add a chair and a nice background for beautiful pictures.
You can find balloon garland kits to add to this area or even hire a balloon artist to do it for you.
This area is stunning. Peacock and rattan chairs are still trending for baby showers this year. You can borrow one from a friend or even rent them from a local prop rental business.
The wood backdrop was likely a rental as well. However, you can DIY this type of rental with a vinyl or paper backdrop.
The color scheme for this shower is a modern take on the bee baby shower, which you can see in the balloon garland kit. The neutrals lean toward a boho vibe but also play off the color of honey.
This is a similar setup to the prior photo, but they lean more toward a traditional bee shower with mixes of mustard yellow in this balloon garland. Also, the rattan chair is perfect on top of the rug.
Here’s another neutral color scheme – creamy white and beige balloon garland.
We have another peacock chair setting here. This balloon garland arch includes sunflowers, which goes well with the bee-themed shower.
Baby Shower Cake + Dessert
Now we’re at the best part – the cake! You can really go big with this and make it a fun part of the bee theme. You can have a baker do this for you, or you can add cake toppers, bee candies, and things like that to the cake.
This is such a simple yet beautiful bee-themed baby shower cake. Candy bees are placed on top of the cake, with their buzzing trail decorated behind them. The hexagon pieces symbolize a honeycomb in a rich amber color.
This baby shower cake looks beautiful. Sometimes when you go for a theme, it’s easy to get carried away and have the dessert table look too busy. This dessert table, however, is perfection. The simple white cake was a perfect choice, and this cake topper adds the perfect touch to it.
Have your baker (or DIY it yourself) add bee candies throughout the cake and cupcakes. I love the addition of flowers and dotted bee trails on this cake.
How cute are these bee honey cakes? You can do this with various baked goods by adding bee candies.
Honeycomb trail mix is a great choice for this dessert table. Add honeycomb serial, honeycomb-shaped pretzels, along with sweet treats like M&M’s.
The entire idea behind these caramel cheesecake stingers is great. I love the little flags in each glass – “bee humble,” etc. The label adds the perfect touch.
When you go with this theme, you don’t necessarily have to have everything covered in bees and honeycomb. These macaroons are a perfect example of how to subtly add your theme to a dessert table. The different layers of yellow are perfection.
Here is another simple white cake with a beautiful topper. The honeycomb shape is subtly etched into the side of the cake.
Bee Baby Shower Favors
Baby shower favors always add a decorative element to the entire event. You can place each favor at your guests’ table setting or create an entire table for guests to grab before they leave. Both options give you the perfect decor opportunity.
The above package is so beautiful. It’s a hexagon box full of beeswax melts or soaps. This would lean toward a baby shower prize, but you could also use this idea for baby shower favors.
You can package beeswax soaps beautifully and put them on each guest’s plate.
Giving honey as a bee baby shower favor is an obvious choice, but it’s such a great one. Who doesn’t love honey? You can find these honey jar favors already packaged and ready to be customized to your baby shower.
I absolutely LOVE this idea. Give away bee-friendly wildflower seeds for guests to plant.
Honey sticks are a perfect choice, especially if you want to keep your favors budget-friendly.
Baby Shower Games
There are so many baby shower games and activities you can have at your event. For a bee-themed shower, consider finding printable games designed specifically for the bee theme.
Another great idea is to add a certain amount of honeycombs to a jar. Have each guest guess how many honeycombs are in it. The guest who guesses correctly or is the closest to the correct number wins!
