e's 2nd birthday party

after postponing e's party to avoid the all too uncommon southern california rain storm, we finally settled on a new date. we were so lucky to have sunny 72 degree weather to reinforce the bright sunshiny bumble bee theme we had planned.
 i wanted to stick with earthy textures and colors, so i made tablecloths using burlap for the top and tulle for the skirt just to add a little softness. 
to eat we had lox and bagels, with all of the accompaniments. puff pastry quiche with ham, swiss and mushrooms, black and yellow fruit salad with pineapple and blackberries, and "honey" buns. 
little cartons of milk were for the kids, and honey sweetened lemonade for everyone.




i made a beehive from sisal rope bringing in the burlap feel to the tabletop. round two of the flowers incorporated brightly colored icelandic poppies, wax flower, orange and yellow parrot tulips and fresh meyer lemons.
we even got a visit from our tiniest guest of honor... (besides the birthday girl) ...the honey bees!

the birthday cake looked like a bee box, complete with dripping honey and little bees buzzing about. inside was a honey cake with honey buttercream all covered in fondant.







each guest was given a little bug jar to take home adorned with one of the bees from the cake inside.
