Bees are just so cute! Whether you're a busy bee or a queen bee, just hearing the word makes us feel cheerful. They are all over the place in fashion and home decor and run the gamut from a French country (think Pierre Deux) look to super preppy (think Kate Spade). And the upside is that these versions are guaranteed to be sting free!
How cute is this necklace? We love the citrine beads and the jeweled bee clasp!
We are obsessed with needlepoint accessories from Smathers & Branson! This keychain is the perfect size and is absolutely adorable. Perfect way to add some preppy style to your look! Bee Key Fob, $25 How fun is this little KJL bumblebee ring?! Kenneth Jay Lane Bee Ring, $92 We love Kate Spade stationary, and this cute little bee print is no exception!
Kate Spade Bee Correspondence Cards, $348 (who on earth does she think she is? Mrs. John L. Strong?) Not that we will be buying any Dior lady bags anytime soon, but if you have $1,550 lying around, this is so cute! It has a gold bumblebee charm with the other D-I-O-R charms on the handle!
Christian Dior Bee Tote, $1,550 And for a less spendy (and less tasteful?) version, how about this hot pink clutch with a bee clasp? We want to love it, but here is our hesitation: It's from Beyonce's House of Dereon line, and it's called the Queen B clutch. I'm not sure we can support that at any price.
Queen B Clutch, $30 We CAN support these adorable gold(ish) and enamel earrings from Anthro! They have a darling retro appeal.
We love this little Herend honeybee! So cute on an end table or in a nursery (at least for those pre-toddler years, after which it will probably work out better on a top shelf somewhere!).
Herend Bee on Flower, $140
The birds and bees (no pun intended) on this Anthro wallpaper are just stunning! So pretty in a bedroom.Vanautu Twilight Wallpaper, $198 per roll
Anna Weatherley knows how to make insects look so elegant. Such a pretty accent plate- we'd use it anywhere!
Anna Weatherley Garden Party Lace Plate, $353
We love the classic French style of these bee tumblers from Ballard Design. For what it's worth, we have also seen them at TJ Maxx and Marshalls for next to nothing!
Bee Tumblers, $45 for set of 4 How adorable are these bumble bee throw pillow from Restoration Hardware? They could be cute in a children's room!
And for our favorite bee accessory... We have loved this hose storage holder from Wisteria for ages. If only it would ever go on sale!
If bugs make you squeamish, then don't forget the honeycombs!
We love the modern lines of this honeycomb vase from West Elm.Honeycomb Cylinder Bud Vase, $9
How cute is this honeycomb trim from Kelly Wearstler's line for Lee Jofa? We'd add it to off-the-rack panels for a custom looking window!
And check out the honeycomb ceiling at Parlor Steakhouse in NYC. Photo courtesy of Patricia Gray Interiors The color combo of black and yellow is really growing on us. It's very Dorothy Draper! Love this look!! I wish we had more pictures of the room, but the black armoire with the Kelly Wearstler's yellow imperial trellis wallpaper is absolutely fabulous!
Belle Magazine Kate Spade's impeccable taste. Is that a pineapple bedskirt? Love it!

What's your favorite bee style? Do you love bee graphics, or do you prefer more subtle touches such as honeycomb patterns and yellow/black pairings?
