Do you love bees? I have a bit of an obsession with them, since my name is Debbee! It’s even reflected in the name of my blog, Debbee’s Buzz —the buzz being all the things, places, projects and people that I love. Over the years, I’ve also shared eight posts full of bee theme ideas.
Since 2017, the UN has designated May 20th as World Bee Day. It’s purpose is to raise awareness of the importance of bees and beekeeping, and about the threats to pollinators by human activities.
Bee sure to check out the organization’s website, World Bee Day, which provides information on events and celebrations all around the world.
To mark the occasion, I’m sharing a roundup of bee theme ideas and ways to celebrate the importance of pollinators. There are party, table setting, food and beverage, gift, craft, and decor ideas.
So ladies, get your buzz on! (more…)

Today, I’m illustrating how to make a bee shape napkin fold in six quick and easy steps.
In anticipation of World Bee Day, I recently hosted the Bee-utiful Table Setting blog hop.
Included in the eight casual to elegant tablescapes was my, French Inspired, Royal Bee Theme Table & Napkin Fold. As explained in earlier posts, the ancient fleur-de-lis symbol is believed to represent a bee.
I first incorporated the bee shape napkin fold into the Back to School Table. Why? Bee-cause students are “busy as a bee” lol!
Although the lovely napkin fold can bee used to impress guests and enhance tables year-round, it’s particularly suited for spring or summer entertaining. Let me show you how easy it is to do. Grab any square napkin and ring to follow along.

Bonjour, mon ami and welcome to the Bee-utiful Bee Table Settings Blog Hop! Today, eight of us are getting together to share casual to elegant tablescapes and centerpieces.
I was motivated to host the hop in honor of World Bee Day, next Thursday, May 20th.
Hoping you’ll find inspiration for both spring and summer seasonal tables and gatherings. Perhaps even for a “Meant to Bee” or “What Will It Bee” bridal or baby shower?
Here at Debbee’s Buzz, the bee theme table was influenced by French ancestry and the pronunciation of my first name. Set on a black and white backdrop, the striking tablescape includes lots of metallic gold accents. Bees are featured on plates, glassware, flatware and napkin rings, along with a theme centerpiece vignette. There’s even a royal French bee shape napkin fold!

Rewinding to the very first My Favorite Things Party, which eventually led me to launching Debbee’s Buzz.
The party presented an opportunity to unleash my inner maker; whether it was creating invitations, decorations, food or favors.
If you follow this blog, you know I love to use themes when decorating, entertaining and crafting.
Today, I’m sharing bee party gifts, favors and prizes from the French Queen Bee theme event.
I hope you find creative inspiration in this post. Perhaps, to host your own gift exchange, tea, birthday party, shower, or to apply guest favor ideas to a rustic wedding.
Learn more on the ins and outs of the My Favorite Things gifts exchange, DIY insights on crating bee party gifts, and fun games and prizes to entertain guests.

Recently, I featured A HapBEE Birthday Table and Beehive Dessert that was complimented by a bee decorated chandelier hanging over head.
Problem was, by the time I posted all the pictures and details about the tablescape and birthday cake, I ran out of time and energy to include the bee decorated chandelier.
Sorry if I left you hanging.
Wow, that’s a pretty lame pun! I’m a little punchy after working all day preparing for the Wonderland 4th Annual My Favorite Things Party.
Ever since the first French Queen Bee party, I decorate the kitchen chandelier with bees and butterfly ribbon every May. It goes so nicely with all my bee linens, dishes, glasses, and flatware.
It’s also makes a nice home decor transition from spring to summer. Come see.
