Bee Decorated Chandelier Compliments HapBEE Birthday Table

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.

A HapBEE Birthday Table and Beehive Dessert

A HapBEE Birthday Table and Beehive Dessert

For my husband’s recent birthday, I created a HapBEE Birthday table and beehive dessert.

After all, he’s my honey and I’m his Debbee!

B’s gift was a Penguins hockey game, with fabulous front row seats youngest son D helped me to score (unintentional pun). It was the first game of the playoffs, with our Pens the reigning Stanley Cup champs — for the past two years (intentional bragging). So, there was a lot of hoopla during pregame festivities. And, we won 7-0 for an amazing night!

Ironically, the Pens were playing the Philadelphia Flyers — where son D lives. He had to watch all the games at either his or a friend’s apartment to hide their enthusiasm. Inside, their pads were bedecked with banners, signs and Pittsburgh jerseys. D did wear one of his jerseys, in public, on a business flight from Chicago back home. I worried the infamous Broad Street Bully fans might not appreciate him walking through the airport victorious with a Pens jersey on. D wasn’t gonna feel any City of Brotherly Love that night LOL!

The Pens did win the series, but evidently were eliminated by sister-in-law’s long denied Capitals. Congrats

Anyway, it was one of those milestone, big-0 birthdays for hubby. He didn’t want a party, but I was determined to make dinner special. B has a sweet tooth, so I knew he’d enjoy a honey of a dessert.

This month, I’m sharing the bee theme party foods and beverages I created for the very first My Favorite Things Party. The entire menu of beverages, appetizers and desserts was inspired and made from pictures and recipes found on Pinterest. Yep, every single one!

My Pinterest search was for bee theme party foods and beverages that included honey and or lemon as a key ingredient. I also looked for desserts that looked like bees, hives, etc.

Although I took a few “shortcuts” here and there, I was delighted with the results and I think you will bee too. (more…)

Elegant French Queen Bee Invitation Made with Vintage Images

This week I am sharing the French Queen Bee invitation I made for the very first My Favorite Things Party — Bee Theme Party Food Features Honey, Lemon.

It was easy to come up with the theme, playing off the pronunciation of my name, Debbee. That’s also what led to the naming of this blog, Debbee’s Buzz.

The French part comes from several things. First, who doesn’t love Paris, the romantic sound of the language, and French food? Well I am a “yes” on all counts! Plus, I have many fond memories of two vacations that included extended stays in Paris. I’ve been fortunate to visit once when newly married with my husband, and another time on a family vacation with our sons.

While on the second trip, we went in search of a street named after a relative who was general to King Louis XIII. This would have been during the time of the Three Musketeers and the evil Cardinal de Richelieu. Ooh la la, I love history! It’s also neat that many of my French ancestral surnames begin with the letter ‘B.’

I’ve always loved to use the French fleur-de-lis and Napoleonic bee symbols or motifs in decor. Come see how I incorporated that vintage imagery into a queen bee theme invitation; using an off-the-shelf wedding kit.
