Bee Theme

As we enter the warmer months and garden parties are being planned I thought I’d do a post on a Bee theme which is lovely for the outdoors.

This is cute for boys or girls, baby showers or even for mixed gender twins birthdays! The most common colour scheme seen is yellow/black/white but you could incorporates blues or pinks, or perhaps add some green for a garden feel.

You can combine this theme with a general garden theme, butterfly theme or ladybug theme.

Here are some finds for this theme. Contact me if you would like to order a personalised inspiration board for this theme: lifeslittlec@gmail.com
