Bee Hive Buzz

My girlfriend Lynda, from Atlanta, and I are helping our friend, Mariterese, from Austin, plan a wedding for her son, Patrick, in Boston. To make things more complicated , I live in Chicago. So thank goodness for the Internet and cell phones. He is getting married at the Bee Hive in Boston in a couple of weeks.
We have embraced the Bee Hive theme for the decor in this unconventional wedding setting. Here's a little tease of our decor. We found these wonderful tags on ETSY from Bluebird Lane and added the names for the gift bags. Check out her stuff on ETSY - Wonderful graphics. We discovered these two old bee skeps - Check out the cute little one on the wooden base. The other one is huge - 27 inches high. We'll use these on the seating assignment table. The honey comb frames still smell like honey - not sure how we will use them yet!
Guests in the hotel will get embellished jars of honey, beautiful soaps and lip balms from Tokyomilk, and some of Mariterese's famous cookies. We will put them all together in burlap tote bags and tie with a gift tag. Better stay tuned for more to come on this fun wedding.
