Bee Sweet! Sweet as a precious baby. I was invited to this adorable bee themed baby shower and snapped a few pictures because I thought everything was just too adorable. Each detail was thought out and tied back to the bee theme and the gold and yellow color palette. From the honey inspired desserts to the honey inspired cocktails everything tasted and looked buzz worthy (har har).

The mother-to-be’s best friend is a mixologist at a fancy restaurant in LA. She brewed up a special cocktail for the party called ‘Bee’s Knees.’ It was a concoction of bullet bourbon, honey syrup and lemon juice. Perfectly light and sweet and was great for the co-ed shower.

I brought the honey lemon cupcakes with buttercream frosting and I am not gonna lie – they were SO tasty and looked fabulous with the rosette design. I pretty much spent a few weekends the month prior testing recipes, watching a ton of YouTube videos (thank you Rosie Cake-Diva for all the tips!) to learn how to pipe frosting, crumb frost a cake and oh, my so much more. I’m going to post about my cupcakes in a few weeks, so stay tuned. Yes, they are that awesome (wow, I never knew I could so blatantly brag about myself)!

Grandma made a gorgeous honeycomb cake with little bee decorations. She purchased a special cake pan from Williams-Sonoma which came with a lemon honey recipe. It was delicious and looked so freakin cute.

The guest favors were mini jars of honey with cute tags that read ‘bee sweet.’ They were displayed in a gold bird cage.

Enjoy the photos and I hope this bee theme baby shower will inspire you! I also photographed this couple’s maternity photos. See their California Causal styled shoot of the couple, just mom-to-be and a few more. Whew!
