Ella's 5th {Busy Bee Party}

We've been busy bee's here of late. Not only are we busy with Spring and Summer weddings, but we celebrated Miss Ella's 5th Birthday on the weekend. She chose our Buzz Buzz Bee invitations last July (while i was standing on a ladder decorating for her ladybird party!), and has done nothing but talk about her bee party ever since!

I was brave and made the cakes myself this time. Ella and I had fun in the kitchen playing with fondant - it's the first time I've made a cake with fondant, so I'm happy with the way they came up! Some pics below of the dessert table and party, I hope they inspire you for things you can do with our buzz buzz bee party theme.

Food made for the dessert table included Honey Joys, Yo-Yo's, Ginger-Bee's and Buzz Cakes. Guests sipped on nectar and were given little 'sweet as honey' jars of sweets to take home. Entertainment was provided by Disco Pop Parties - the busy bee's disco! And we finished up with a bee pinata.
