Queen Bee Garden Tea Bridal Shower: Details

Have you perused the new issue yet? It is a pretty bunch of pages full of spring + summer wedding inspiration! Today we are taking a look at some of the details behind our bridal shower feature!

A theme for the warmer months this bee + garden tea bridal shower is perfect for a warm spring or summer day bridal shower. Sage + Thistle designed and planned this summer soiree based on inspiration from their own vintage Mikasa china set which was also used for place setting. While bees and honeycomb have been used as a theme before, we challenged them to put a fresh spin on it, and they so did!


Coral, pink, yellow, spring green, and pops of gold set all the tones. Fresh + bright colors balanced with natural greens made for a refreshing color palette. We especially love the hand calligraphic place mats by Karli Noel! A simple personal touch goes such a long way!


Those bright colors created colorful floral illustrations set against a honeycomb pattern on the invites where honey was the inspiration for the hand drawn calligraphy, all created by Robert & Stella.

The favor basket was filled with products from Queen Farina. Cute little bottles of honey, fresh honeycomb and a few beeswax body products carried the Queen Bee theme to the very end.

A summer celebration fit for a queen and all her bees! Tomorrow we will take a look at the floral + food to finish off the week!
