Tara, an awesome client of ours, shared photos from Ty's 1st Bee Day. I was so excited to see her party... she had been planning for awhile and hired us to do lots of graphics. She pulled it off perfectly! She had seen Pierson's 1st Bee day here on the blog and so we focused on adorable black/white/yellow graphics for the party.
Tara sent out a customized bee day invitation she had us design from our shop. We also designed an address logo and graphic for the front of the envelope. She had a printer print directly on the envelope - looks so nice! Also, check out the thank you note that we designed after the party (2nd image below) - isn't that photo just the greatest w/ their sweet dog, Mattie, in the pic?!
You all know that houndstooth is one of my favorite patterns, right? I just LOVE her use of houndstooth in the party. (Remember Pierson's 1st Bee Day? Tara used the fabulous Hobby Lobby wrapping paper, too!)
Tara had all of the details planned, including what Ty wore. Ty looks so adorable in his little personalized outfit. I just love it! See the photo of him by the balloons - check out the adorable bee ride on toy. LOVE IT!
Tara bought a food card graphic from our shop and she personalized them with cute words for her food... Check out her menu:
-"Bee Wings" (Chicken Wings)
-"Bee-r" (beer - in the right color scheme, of course!)
-"Bee-Bee-Q" (Pulled pork)
-Fruit w/ honey yogurt dipping sauce
-PB Honey Bees (remember those!? - SO GOOD! Tara said she loved them, too!)
-Bee Hive Cake
-Hive & Bee Sugar Cookies (my FAVORITE!)
Tara had a lot of great ideas that didn't get photographed. She had various sizes of large yellow paper lanterns in the backyard. (CUTE idea!) She had yellow bubble containers for the kids to play with.
Favors are my favorite part of the party planning... look how adorable her favors turned out! The honey bears are my favorite!!! (Custom logo favor tag and honey bear logo designs in our shop) She filled those sweet honey bears with tootsie rolls and organic cereal in the ones for the little guys... Gotta stick with the color scheme! ;-)
She wrapped up coloring books for the older kids and super cute bee books for the little guests. (I LOVE the idea of books for favors!)
I just have to share her feature table again. She had us design a custom banner for her party and I love how she hung it.... The tiered look is just SO cute in this setting, when you don't want to string it super long. LOVE the hive cake and you can see Ty's adorable bib (that coordinates, of course) on the table.
Look how cute their family is! Tara's hair bow is just TOO cute! Isn't Ty a sweetie pie!?
Thanks for sharing, Tara! I'm so glad we got to "bee" part of helping you accessorize Ty's sweet party!
