PARTY DETAILS, as told by Jamee

Since this table is for Thanksgiving I chose a more rustic and natural feel rather than the bright yellow and black often seen in a “bee” theme.  The color concept is brown, burlap and butter yellow.  The honeycomb backdrop was crafted from a 8’ sheet of cardboard and octagon craft boxes and lids.

The honeycomb sheet that the caramel apples sat atop was actually a packaging discovery.  This was a “spacer” between two stacks of fragile candy that was shipped to me.  I peeled the paper away from the top of the sheet and found this honeycomb type pattern underneath.  It took quite a while to peel away the paper but once I got all of the paper off, I spray painted it yellow and used it as a tray for the apples.

Other sweet treats featured were mini pumpkin pies, mini cinnamon buns, two bite salted caramel cuppies, cinnamon sugar kettle popcorn in honeycomb cones and bee hive cake pops and Oreo dusted pops.

Hello,, I absolutely love the Bee Thankful theme you did for thanksgiving. I got plenty of inspiration for my daughters shower. Thank you.
Could you please tell me which vendor or supplier you used to find the little beehive glasses? They look like a great alternative to mason jars. Please please tell me where you purchased them! Thanks so much.
