The Hive Themed Party Ideas

Updated on March 21, 2013

The Hive - How to Throw a Themed Party

The Hive is a hugely popular pre-school TV series featuring a cute bee family who live in their hive. The show follows the adventures of Buzzbee, Rubee, their parents and little sister, Ba-Bee plus all their friends.

The Official Hive shop has just launched and will feature a range of merchandise from the show including toys and gifts. Exclusive to the shop are Hive birthday caketoppers and giftwrap - perfect for making a Hive fan's birthday extra special.

Although party supplies aren't available yet, we have load of ideas for a Hive themed party including tablewear, cake, games and gifts!

The Hive Birthday Cake

For kids, the birthday cake is the piece de resistance! Give a child a cake featuring their favourite character and you cannot fail to impress on their birthday. Now you could spend hours playing with coloured icing to get the effect you want, or you could just make or buy a simple cake with white icing and add one of these great toppers!

Made with real icing and printed with edible colours, these toppers simple peel off their backing to be applied to your cake. A range of shapes and sizes is available - A4, A5, round 7.5" and cupcake toppers too. There's also a selection of designs fearuring Buzzbee, Rubee and the rest of the gang!

Even better, all the cake toppers come in standard designs with Happy Birthday printed. However you can also choose the personalised options if you prefer and add a name, age or a message to the topper instead.

The Hive Party Supplies

Sadly as we go to print, there are no official Hive party plates, cups etc in production - but we hope that it will only be a matter of time!

In the meantime, once you have your cake decorations, you can wing it with some yellow and black coloured partyware!

Add a mix of yellow and black bowls, plates, napkins and lootbags to your table to get that bee look going on!

Buzzy Bee Games for your Hive Party

Party games are a must so how about these variations on old themes to get your party 'buzzing!'

Pin the wings on the bee: make your bee out of a large circle of yellow card with eyes and strips painted on. Blindfold each of the kids in turn and get them to pin the wings on - closest gets a prize!

Musical bees: Children must buzz around like little bees, stopping still when the music stops. Any twitches or wobbles and they are out! The best bee for staying still gets a prize. We recommend Flight of the Bumblebee as your music!

Collect the pollen: if you have enough space, distribute coloured ping pong balls or similar around and let the kids collect their pollen in a short space of time - the one with the most pollen wins!
