Bumble Bee Birthday Party

Mrs. Rooster is the best friend ever!  She always lets me help with her daughters’ parties.  This year a bumble bee theme was chosen for her youngest.  We had so much fun creating all of the black and yellow decorations.  Mrs. Rooster even made a bumble bee outfit.  We were the talk of the town at Peter Piper Pizza!

See the ruffled crepe paper?  I ran that right
through the ruffler root on my sewing machine!

Mrs. Rooster made the entire outfit! {I “BEE” 3} was ironed onto a black shirt.  Aren’t the antennas totally cute?! They moved every time she took a step.  I know you can’t tell in the picture, but spray glitter was added to the tulle, to make it all shiny and sparkly!


Notice how the banner isn’t hung on a wall . . .  Concrete was mixed into soup cans and while the concrete was still wet, I placed nice sized dowel rods into the wet concrete.  The soup cans were wrapped in black paper.
