PARTY DETAILS, as told by Mariah
:

Life is full of special moments; big moments, small moments and all those in between. I believe in (and love) celebrating “Just BEE-cause” and this tea party was the perfect occasion for doing just that with our friends.

I enlisted the help of Piggy Bank Parties to bring my “Just BEE-cause” party to life.  They created a whimsical and fun bee collection with dainty details, amazing beehive party favor boxes and adorable signs I could customize for our party.

Our little guest enjoyed PB & Honey tea sandwiches, Fruit with Honey Yogurt Dip, Lemon Honey cupcakes, Chocolate Covered Oreos and Honey Rosemary Lemonade. I really wanted a beehive cake so I made one and added adorable buzzing bees from Edible Details. Brittany also captured the dainty details in the adorable cupcake toppers and 3D fondant beehives. As an added treat I ordered honeycomb Chocolate Covered Oreos from Sweet Temptations, delicious and pretty.

In addition to the beehive favor boxes each guest took homemade Peanut Butter and Honey Play Dough home as a reminder of our fun afternoon. This was one sweet party and my girls loved having a tea party with their friends “Just BEE-cause”

The first ever Eloise party I saw introduced on the internet and secondly I fell in love with was on TLC by I believe Serendipity Soiree. The hungry catepillar is a fun theme for the little ones and so is Just BEE-Cause and the three bears. All in my opinion of course.

What are in the straws next to the honey jar? They look like jell candy or something.
