a honeycomb baby shower

I threw a baby shower this last weekend and it was such joy! We themed the celebration around welcoming Erin’s new hunny and filled the space with honeycomb inspired decor and honey infused food. I happened upon the thought of using chicken wire as honeycomb and bought a big package of it. After the shower I was so inspired by the (new to me) material. I will be sharing fun chicken wire DIY projects this week. I could not resist creating them!

Spray painted yellow the chicken wire adorned the shower table as a runner and popped up as vases throughout the room. The vases are so easy to make. You simply cut out a section of the wire and roll it together. Be sure to wear gloves when working with it to avoid cuts. It is sharp!

Chalked honeycomb onto the wall was the perfect backdrop and I and served goodies like honey sea-salt popcorn and honey apricot cookies. I gave out local honey with wooden dippers for the favors and a package of mint green honeycombs hung organically from the light fixture. The room was already home to a large grey painted tree (LOVE!), it fit in perfectly and yellow frames awaiting the newest hunny added a note of expectant charm.
