A Baby Shower That's Just the Bee's Knees

Aug 27 2014 - 2:57pm

To many people, bees are pesky creatures that cause unpleasant pains. But to Dorangela Bobet, they are the perfect inspiration for a baby shower. While many may have gone crazy with yellow and black decorations, the founder of Two Princes Bakery Theater [1], a company that specializes in serving gluten- and casein-free foods, took a different approach. She subtly highlighted the theme by "using bright and sunny yellow flowers and playing up the honeycomb shape throughout the party." This was no easy task to accomplish, especially since Dorangela did everything herself, from decorating to styling to preparing the food. Yet without help, she pulled off an amazing event for her client. Scroll through to see photos from Dorangela's bee-autiful baby shower.
