3 Bee-utiful Napkin Ideas | www.SmartyHadAParty.com

Looking to make a buzz at your next party? Summer is right around the corner and to celebrate a little bit early, and since bee and bumblebee themes have been gaining a lot of attention lately, we have some bright inspiration that is inexpensive, bee-utiful, and extremely versatile. Black, yellow, and white with bold patterns and bee-utiful treats will create a darling bumblebee theme for your next event!

Here are some great napkin ideas to illuminate any event and, as a bonus, free printables!


Embellish party favors with paper napkins


What you need:



Cut a sliver of the napkin and add it to your party favors - we used the Black Grandeur Paper Dinner Napkins. Carry out the theme by incorporating the same napkin in each place setting. From there, tie a black ribbon around the favor to finish it. Adding a printable to your favors makes them look professional and beautiful. 
Smarty Party Theme Idea: "Meant to Bee" is an adorable motif for a wedding. Decorate with yellowblack, and white and maybe even give your guests honey as a wedding favor.


  Wrap gifts or favors in a paper napkin

What you need:

  • Paper napkins - we used black grandeur napkins
  • Ribbon - we used black wired edged organza ribbon
  • Free Printables


If you are planning on having a gift table at your next event, wrapping small presents in paper napkins and ribbon is a wonderful way to coordinate your gift table with your guest tables. If you are not having a gift table, you can wrap your favors in paper napkins instead.
Smarty Party Theme Idea: Having a gender reveal bash? A "What Will Baby Bee" themed reveal party is sure to awe your guests. Have someone put something pink or blue inside of your napkin wrapped box (maybe even some confetti?!) and open it in front of your guests for the big reveal.

Dress up your centerpieces with paper napkins


What you need:

  • Vases for centerpieces - we used a glass cube vase
  • Napkins - we used black grandeur napkins
  • Ribbon - we used black satin edged organza ribbon
  • Free Printables



Fold and attach paper napkins to your centerpieces. Tie a matching bow around the centerpiece and add a printable for that WOW factor.
Smarty Party Theme Idea: A "Queen Bee" theme is perfect for Mother's Day or a birthday party. Want matching partyware?
