Bumble bee baby shower w/ free printables!


Today I’ll be sharing a bumble bee baby shower I hosted a few weeks ago. I’ve teamed up with our fabulous contributor Heather from Chickabug to bring you these free printables for you to host your own shower at home. Make sure to scroll down to find all the goodies.

When I found out my friend Christina was not finding out what she was having, I thought the “What will it BEE?” theme would be super cute! I love how it all came together! Yellow is such a happy color!

Food place cards always add the perfect touch to a party!

Brownie bites

Brownie bites topped with yellow frosting.

Black and yellow baby shower

Yellow confetti, black and yellow candy and polka dot straws! I always place the utensils in a mason jar and tie it with twine. It’s so easy to do and always dresses up the table.

Bee baby shower favors

Party favors! I punched out the cupcake toppers (included in the free printable pack) with a 2 inch circle punch and glued them onto these cute striped bags.

    This is soooo adorable! Definitely want to do this for my own shower, could be good for a ‘gender reveal party’ too.

    Hey! These printables are perfect for a shower I am hosting, but when I click on the link, it sends me to “price is right” themed shower games and not the bumblebee suite. Can you check the link? If they are still available, I would be ecstatic!!! Thanks!!!

    • Christina posted on July 10, 2014 at 10:54 am (#

      Hey!!! I am so in love with this theme, but the link for the printables is not correct. Is there anyway someone could send me the documents, I really need them!

  11. jessica posted on March 20, 2015 at 1:39 pm (#

    where can i find bee baby shower games? This is very urgent today I am hosting this bee baby shower!!

    • Jamielyn posted on May 3, 2015 at 12:57 am (#

      Hi Jessica! Just search “bee baby shower games” on pinterest and a bunch will pop up! :)

    I tried printing up the free Bumble Bee Baby Shower items and it omitted the letter B from the printing. Any suggestions ?

    • Jamielyn posted on May 3, 2015 at 12:24 am (#

      Hi! I would try changing the settings to print only the pages with the B on them. :)

  13. Daniela posted on August 6, 2015 at 10:13 am (#

    thank you! it helps

  14. Veronica posted on November 7, 2015 at 9:50 am (#

    This is so perfect exactly what i was looking for! I do have a question for the favor bags do you need to print the cupcake toppers on a certain kind of paper ir order to glue them to popcorn boxes or favor bags like the one you used?

    • Laura Capello posted on November 7, 2015 at 10:20 am (#

      We used a white card stock from the office area, just to give the labels a little more thickness than copy paper. :)
