Good Morning, not been on for a while, but looking for advice on any ideas with a Bee Theme that I can make.    Our local MacMillan Cancer Care have been gifted a plot of land which they hope to make into a beautiful garden.   They are having a fundraising event to raise funds with a “Bee Theme”.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    This one is aimed at children's activities- maybe have a 'make-it' table with nominal charge per item made?

    Thanks for your suggestion I know what you mean but I m not sure I’d be able to make something like that.   We have made wee bee hives with a sweetie inside, paper hankie covers with a bee on them, coasters, and some floral wreaths.   Hope they will raise some funds for MacMillan Cancer Care.🙂
