Party Theme: Honey Bee

Another party theme that can be used for almost any occasion: Honey Bee! I found beautiful party pics from weddings, housewarming parties, kids' birthday parties, and of course baby showers. You can make this theme as cute or classy as you want. Either put the emphasis on the squiggly lines of a smiling bee or the graphic blocks of the bee hive. Bee a little corny with the puns, or let the images speak for themselves. It's up to you...bee yourself! (What movie?)

Cake Stands

A cake without a stand is like a picture without a frame. But you have to choose the perfect stand for each cake. A simple cake could use a flashy stand to make it look complete, and an intricate cake might look best on a simple stand. There are tons of DIY cake stands out there, so you can customize your stand for each cake without breaking the bank. Or you could splurge on one to display in your kitchen when it's not in use. And finally, you can search thrift stores for an old vintage look. Here is a variety of beautiful, unique cake stands, just begging for cakes to display.
