{Freebie} Teacher Appreciation

I made this bee-themed gift for my son’s First Grade teacher.

Partly I was inspired to use bees because his teacher has a running BUMBLE BEE theme in her classroom (for example, each child has a bee with their name on it on the wall, and if they misbehave they ‘lose a stinger’ or are ‘out of the hive’).

And partly I wanted to go with bees because I found this cute beehived-shaped tealight holder at Target. It was in the Dollar Spot area, so they may not have it regularly.  If you can’t find one, a yellow or black gift bag with a bee tag on it would do just fine (and hold more, as well).

In keeping with the bee theme, I filled it with Burt’s Bees products. I purchased the ‘Head to Toe’ kit at Target for $13. I tied a ribbon around the tealight holder and put as many of the items as I could into the jar. You could add a gift card or any other small item to the jar if you prefer.

I gave it to her with the bee letter that you can DOWNLOAD FOR FREE HERE.

I had my son write his teacher’s name at the top, and sign his name at the bottom. I also added the date in small print.

Bumble Bee Baby Shower

I hosted this shower for two moms-to-be, who were expecting different gender babies. I decided to leave the traditional pinks and blues behind, and go for a yellow and black theme. I call it, “Welcome Ba-Bee!” This theme would also work for a birthday party, bridal shower, etc. (Various banners and invitation wording available in my shop).

Putting together yellow and black foods, and honey-themed items for the buffet was so much fun!

I’m always amazed at how many comments I get about water bottle labels at my parties. It is a detail that I don’t think many people have seen, and guests will invariably pick up a bottle and say, “NO. WAY. This is so cool!”  I’ll let you in on a little secret though… they are the easiest part of the party!  I print them on regular paper, do a few quick cuts on the paper cutter, and attach them with a bit of tape. Voila! Quick party glam.

These bumble bee pops elicited squeals of glee from both children and adults. They were not only adorable, they tasted amazing!

I made these cake shooters with a slight twist… I used brownie bites and cheesecake that I made and then cut into circles (using the push pop container as a ‘cookie cutter’. Then I added a touch of chocolate frosting. YUMMO!

And here is the entire collection, as available in my shop!
