Little Miss H’s bumble bee themed birthday party

bumble bee themed birthday party

Back in May, Little Miss H turned the grand old age of two. Her birthday was a few weeks after the miscarriage and it crept up on me rather suddenly.

We had decided that we would throw her a party the Sunday after her birthday. A week before the date, I realised that I had invited a few people to her party but that was it. I was completely disorganised and didn’t have a clue what I was doing.

Thankfully, I was contacted by the lovely people from Feather Grey Parties and we were sent some gorgeous products from their beautiful bumble bee themed party set.

I love all the products from Feather Grey Parties and Little Miss H is very lucky that her nursery is furnished with one of their lovely personalised pictures.

I leapt at the chance of reviewing the bumble bee party kits. Plus, at a time of stress it was perfect that I didn’t really have to think about getting bits and bobs for the party. Feather Grey Parties had done all that for me.

Their website is easy to use and it handily groups the party sets by theme. Everything I needed for the bumble bee party was in one place.

We were sent:

  • Pink and yellow polka dot baking cups and bumble bee cupcake toppers
  • Yellow polka dot party plates and party cups
  • Pink party napkins and yellow striped paper straws
  • Pink and yellow balloons and a stunning confetti balloon
  • Wooden knives and forks.

We also received some cute party invitations (which I wrote the week before the party) and some thank you cards (as I publish this I have only written one of these cards to my parents). These wonderful cards really help to tie the theme of the party together.

The original plan was to hold a picnic afternoon tea in Rochester Castle Gardens. In the end the British weather won out and with half an hour to spare we moved the party into our flat.

We laid the table, blew up balloons, put out all of Little Miss H’s toys and turned the play pen into a den. It was a mad rush but eventually we were ready to receive guests.

I had been baking most of the weekend and the table was scattered with a number of sugary treats: there were vanilla cupcakes with white and pink icing decorated with flowers and the bumble bee cake toppers; rocky road; smartie and chocolate button cookies and of course, birthday cake. I had also made cheese straws for anyone who fancied something savoury and for the children there were some obligatory bowls of Pom Bears.

The table looked lovely once it was all laid out. I adored the combination of the pale pink and yellow.

I added to the theme by placing some pale yellow shredded tissue paper in our hurricane lamps and the goodie parcels for the children (a bumble bee wind sock for their gardens) were wrapped in pink tissue paper with a yellow ribbon.

The birthday girl

Little Miss H was actually ill for her party. The next day I took her to the doctor and she was diagnosed with a nasty ear infection and given antibiotics.

Nevertheless, she was an absolute poppet on the day. She was thrilled to have all her best buddies and family around her and she was over the moon that she got to eat lots of cake, cookies and rocky road.

The last-minute change of plans meant that we were in a rush to get ready for the party. But I found time to dress Little Miss H in a beautiful shirt dress from JoJo Maman Bébé and Mr H put her hair up in some messy daddy-style bunches. She looked gorgeous.

We had a lovely day with friends and family. There was cake, singing, giggling, bubbles, balls, balloons and bumble bees. What more could a two-year old want from a birthday party?

Are you planning a birthday party soon? If so, have you thought of a theme? Why not consider a bumble bee themed birthday party?

Hugs

    The next birthday party seems a long way off for us, but I love the pink and yellow together, I think it makes it a bit more girly than having black and yellow stripes all the way through x

    Gosh she looks so grown up. She also looks as if she is having a ball. The yellow and pink together are such a pretty combination x

      Thanks for your comment. She does look so grown up, doesn’t she?!? I am not happy about it. She is actually as tall as a three year old and is wearing size 3-4 clothes. Which is madness. She did have a lovely time at her party though. I also thought that the pink and yellow were such a pretty combination. The perfect Springtime colours for a birthday party in May. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

      Thanks for your comment lovely. The cakes were very yummy… But very sugary. Especially combined with the rocky road, birthday cake and cookies. We had a lot of toddlers high on sugar and going mad but it was a lovely afternoon and Little Miss H had so much fun. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

    Sounds like a brilliant party and I was equally disorganised for my two-year-old’s today! I do love the Feather Grey party sets though, I’ve tried the Bumble Bee one too, it’s gorgeous. x

      Thanks for your comment lovely lady. I think that you have an excuse for being disorganised. But the Feather Grey Party sets do make it much easier to be that little bit organised. And they are cute too. I hope that your little lady enjoyed her birthday party. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

    How cute is little miss, she looks like a cheeky little thing :D!
    I love this party set, it’s refreshing to see something that isn’t full of princesses and fairies! xxx

      Thanks for your lovely comment. Little Miss H is totally cheeky. A lot of those photos were taken when she was getting up to mischief with a gal pal Little Miss B. I totally agree that one of the reasons this party set is so lovely is that it isn’t the usual girly party gimmick. In fact, I would be quite happy to have it at my birthday party. Hugs Mrs H xxxx

    What a lovely theme!! I love all these little accessories that you can get for parties these days!! It’s so ‘American’ isn’t it? They seem to do this kind of thing so well… lovely that we’re able to get similar products now too.

    I didn’t realise that little miss H was so close in age to my Twinkles either!! Ahh she’s a beauty!

    Ahhhh I love it. I’m obsessed with anything bee/ladybird themed at the mo. (A peek into J’s wardrobe and you’ll see what I mean).

    Love the bumble bee party bits, so cute!!

    Little Miss H looks gorgeous too – the spitting image of her mummy. xx

      Thanks for your comment lovely. Little Miss H has a lot of ladybird/ bee outfits too. In fact, I think she has the same summer dress as Jasmine from BlueZoo. Ha ha! Great taste. Thanks also for the comment about her looking like her mummy. Everyone always tells me she looks like Mr H. So it is nice to know that there is some of me in there too. Hugs Mrs H xxxx
