Ready for a new twist on a baby shower? Danielle shows you how to throw a bee-themed baby shower that is fun, easy and green. (Nick Scott/MNN)
Bea: If you are, for example, suffering from allergies in the spring or in the fall, local honey would help you fight those allergies. Why? Because those bees are flying all around and bringing all the nectars and pollen that you are allergic to. And they are transforming this nectar and pollen into honey, and this honey you will take regularly and gradually – you will, you will take that honey, one teaspoon a day all year round, and this honey will behave like a vaccine.
Danielle: As usual, we visit our farmer’s market. We got some really vibrant gorgeous yellow spray roses, some hydrangea, a whole mix of flowers. And what’s great here is, I just pulled some vases from the cupboard, but I wanted to give them a little more life. And I took some different vintage ribbons. I have a black and a yellow vintage ribbon. And so we gave a little bit more life to the vases. And this vase here is actually – the ribbon is actually not vintage, but it’s made with water-based inks, it’s a pure biodegradable cotton, and that’s from Cream City Ribbon. And adding a little black to the table in this little vintage bowls from Fishs Eddy, I have some organic Panda black licorice. Here we have not only a color scheme, we also have a concept. We’re going with our honeybee theme. So establish your theme, your color scheme and just figure out what you have around that can play into it. And that’s our honeybee baby table. [bzzzz]
