Winnie the Pooh Party (37 photos)
The whole feel was very natural, with references to bees, honey and the 100 Acre Wood friends. I utilized very neutral colors, paired with shades of yellow and touches of red, and burlap fabric. I designed the paper products, with graphics purchased from The Dotted Daisy and Graphique.
For the backdrop, I tied four felt placemats together whose pattern resembled that of a honeycomb and also attached a plastic red balloon that I spray-painted red that is featured in the movie.
The food offerings all represented some form of honey ("hunny") items and included honeycomb cereal, honey graham s'mores on a stick, teddy graham cookies, honey roasted peanuts, honey candy, honey butterscotch popcorn (with movie tickets) and finally, honey vanilla cupcakes with custom fondant toppers. I added a small flag bunting in the front with the words "Silly Old Bear". For the topper design, I created Winnie the Pooh dressed up as a bee and since a premise of the movie includes the characters searching for tails, I decided to reference them with their ears and tails! All the food was presented in various pots, jars and canisters with a outdoor/garden feel that I purchased at Home Goods, Hobby Lobby and Joann's. I also utilized my daughter's red wagon to offer some honey vanilla pudding and a honey apple juice beverage, which were served in glasses with honey bee etchings. The food tags were displayed on turned-over nesting bowls to resemble hives.
The favors were placed on a small kids table adorned with flowers in a honey pot and offering honey bears and pots, while the picnic basket carried some decorative plush animals and Winnie the Pooh coloring books. Also on the table were paper mache books with a custom cover, inside which included crayons for the children.
Some additional decorations included a turned over crate displaying Winnie the Pooh items and a framed quote. Lastly, I hung a sign up with "100 Acre Woods" printed on paper with a burlap graphic and attached it to an embroidery circle on a tree by the decor.
