Oh, to Bee One! A First Bumble Beeday Party

Feb 4 2014 - 12:57pm

When Anna Nodolf of ADN Designs [1] was asked by her good friend to design a bumblebee-themed party for her little girl’s first birthday, she delivered with the sweetest bumblebee birthday party we've ever seen! From the beehive and bumblebee graphics to the bee-themed dessert table, the graphic designer and photographer made sure that every corner and tabletop of this celebration buzzed with cuteness. Anna said, "We had so much fun coming up with the cute little bumblebee-themed sayings and playful vibe for the party." But despite all the lovely details, Anna's most memorable moment of the party was not even an actual design element — it was the guest of honor's priceless reaction, "The huge smile on the little birthday girl’s face when we all sang her happy birthday. So sweet!!"

DIY Honeycomb Streamers

Anna loved the easy DIY [8] honeycomb streamers. She said, "The honeycomb streamers are simple to make!! Just fold paper back and forth like a fan and cut into strips. Tape one end to the ceiling (or patio umbrella in this case) and voila!"
