How to Throw a Bee Party on a Dollar Store Budget

If you've been following me for a while, you've probably seen a small trickle of bee party projects coming in one at a time. Here, however, is a full comprehensive look at my son's third birthday party - including some brand new things like a free downloadable invitation template and activity ideas!

To keep out party under budget, we made a lot of things ourselves and used items that were available from the dollar store. In fact, very few of the items we used to pull the party together didn't come from the dollar store!


I designed simple yellow, black and white invitations in Photoshop and had them printed at a 4x6 size to hand out to his friends. If you're planning a bee-themed party and need invites, I have these available now as a free personalizable download! (download bee party invitations here)

K wore a bee shirt we made for the occasion. It actually didn't have wings yet (those came later to turn it into a Halloween costume) but it was super fun to wear.

We also had bee headbands for his friends to wear.
(we just attached these Bumpy Chenille Stems to some headbands leftover from the Panda Party)
