Mom to Bee

It's that time of year. Spring has come and gone and babies are abounding. There is nothing like a good summer baby shower.  It's especially exciting, and challenging, to plan a surprise gender shower.  But with Pinterest, a mom that works at a stationary store and twenty hosts, we managed to pull it off.  


Our sweet friend Cameron Adams has a little baby bundle on the way and oh, did we have fun showering this Mom to Bee.


I put a wreath on the door and popped up a tent. Betsy did the rest....


The adorable invitations were done by Betty Hunley and designed by Nancy Ellis.


Little bee accents abounded.


And beautiful white roses straight from my MIL's garden.


Salted caramel macarons pleased the crowd.


Along with the obligatory adorable iced cookies, of course. (Courtesy of Joan Ferrell-Mathis).


La Boulanger outdid herself with this adorable  La Louisiane Bakery cake.


And we couldn't have been more captivated by the always beautiful flowers by Meade Wenzel.


Thanks to Gerrie Bremermann Designs for the stunning centerpiece.


Betsy, Nancy and the crafts committee outdid themselves on handmade bee swizzle sticks for mimosas.  


And, of course, the custom honeycomb lids on the mason jars for the delicious mint lemonade can't be missed.

Thanks to all the hosts for making this shower a success and sweet Cameron for letting us go over-the-top after repeated requests to keep it simple.
