Bee themed baby shower + FREE PRINTABLES

I don't get to attend many baby showers where the parents-to-be choose to not know the sex of the baby. With ultrasounds getting more detailed and home gender test kits being so readily available, most parents are so excited to find out what the sex of their new addition. This is precisely what made this shower exciting to plan because everyone has been waiting to know, "What will it bee?"

Several months ago, my friend Sheila co-hosted a baby shower for a good friend of hers and asked me to make some lollipops, cupcake picks and poms ( which we lovingly refer to as fluffy balls). After looking through photos and other inspiration for a gender neutral shower theme, she decided on a bee theme, specifically, "Baby number three, what will it bee?"

She chose to go with a bright yellow and black color scheme instead of sticking to pastels which some people do for baby showers. I think the brighter yellow gave the party a more modern feel.
I wish I had more photos from the shower to share but my dear friend to this day, has not given me any photos!

Yesterday, another friend asked me if I had any gender neutral baby shower themed printables available and I remembered the bee shower. I figured, heck, if I'm sending her the party set, I might as well share it with everyone else.

So here they are- party circles which can be used as cupcake toppers, favor tags, napkin rings, etc. I used my scalloped edge punch which I think has a 1.5 inch diameter but I think a 2 inch circle punch would also work well. I am also giving you a bunting banner that spells out " What will it bee?" that can be hung above a dessert table, doorway, mantle or anywhere for that matter.

  1. Very cute- do you have invites or other things in this pattern? I'm hosting for a military mom and would love some more cute stuff to print out.

  2. I don't have any other printables in this pattern. If you do use these, I'd love for you to share some pics with me please. :)

  3. Is there any way for you to email these to me? Scribd is charging me to download them

    1. Hi,
      I don't know what's going on with Scribd. You should be able to right click on the image and save it on your computer. If not, email me at lollipopsandpaper@gmail.com
