I’m so excited to share this very special party with you today. I’ve been cyber-stalking Nicolle of Libby Lane Press for about a month now — ever since I caught a sneak peek of this What Will it Be? Gender Reveal Party — and my constant emailing has finally paid off! Scroll down to see more pictures and party details. It’s BEE-utiful!
Gender reveal parties are a trend that just keeps on growing — and this bee-themed party is filled with inspirations and DIY ideas for mamas-to-be planning a gender reveal party of their own!
Strips of fabric, lace and burlap served as the backdrop behind the dessert table. While a ruffled, Anthropologie-inspired handmade tablecloth — made of unbleached muslin — set the stage for a picture perfect bee-themed party table.
All of the party printables — from the party invitations and party circles, to the customizable food labels — are all part of the Honeybee Collection designed by Libby Lane Press. The apothecary jars were filled with alternating layers of white and yellow candy melts. The hive jars were filled with Honey Comb cereal while the large centerpiece was filled with jumbo marshmallows. “The goal was to incorporate affordable alternatives to expensive candy to fill these popular, yet large, jars that appear on so many dessert tables.” The cream colored flower pots were filled with foam, topped with ornamental wheat grass and served as the home to the bumblebee cake pops.
Dessert Table Goodies
Bee-themed cupcakes were topped with fondant toppers made by Sugar Babies and displayed on a white tray atop a bed of chocolate chip morsels. Delicious almond vanilla cookies were custom made by Bundles of Cookies to perfectly match the invitation — including identical font! These cookies would serve as the perfect party favor for a gender reveal! Honeycomb patterned chocolate covered Oreos were made by The Chocolate Box and topped with the sweetest little fondant honeybees, also created by Sugar Babies. The bumblebee cake pops were made by Nicolle, of Libby Lane Press, using a combination of Bakerella’s Cake Pop book and a tutorial found on Hostess with the Mostess. “This was my first cake pop making experience and with a little trial and error I am happy to say it was a success.”
