Gender Reveal Party

A couple of days ago, I found some more stuff for the Gender Reveal party. I just ordered the digital files and will be printing these myself. Cupcake wrappers, cupcake toppers, favor bags and thank you notes! Aren't they adorable?

I found these balloons on eBay and received them a couple of weeks ago.

I plan on using a black tablecloth and then I bought a couple of packages of this confetti to put out everywhere.

I ordered these plates for the food that we serve, and I thought that I'd get some plain yellow plates to mix in with them.
I'm looking for some black and white polka dot plates to use for the cake, but I haven't found any yet. Anyone have ideas of where I can find them?
I ordered these beverage/dessert napkins and am planning to get some plain yellow ones to mix in with them.
I haven't picked out what I want the cake to look like yet - I want something cute that I won't spend a fortune on, so I'm still deciding.
And I can't figure out what I want to serve for food. The party is between lunch and dinner so I don't want to have a lot of food but I need to put something out. I wasn't sure if I should go to traditional route - fruit tray, meat and cheese tray, chips and dips, etc. or if I should try to tie it all in to the bee theme and have like "Honey" Ham sandwiches, honey mustard something or another. I don't have a lot of ideas for that. Do y'all?
I still have a lot of work to do but I can't wait to see everything come together! I think it will be really adorable!

I googled "bee cupcake cake" and found some neat things. Here is a blog that I found that has some really cute ideas!

For an idea for extra decorations, what about filling glass jars with yellow/black/white M&Ms (you can order specific colors online). You can get some clear bags and people can fill them to take home as a favor.

Hey, we are doing a Bee theme for Declan's first birthday, and I am making "dirt" cupcakes with bumble bee cake pops! I thought it would be a cute idea for the party! Here's the link where I got the idea (hopefully mine will come out a little better!)

When I said idea for the party, I meant your party, not just mine =0)
