Discover the sweet themed food we had at our Winnie the Pooh-themed party!
Hello Crafty Friends! Earlier this week I shared details from our Winnie the Pooh-themed party including the fun games we played, party favors, decorations and more. Today I wanted to create a post just for the Winnie the Pooh party food ideas! Creating the themed food for this party was a lot of fun and our guests loved the cute details.
I found lots of ideas for Winnie the Pooh-themed food on Pinterest – more ideas than we actually needed! This is quite a popular theme for parties and it’s easy to see why – everything is just so cute!
We were serving lunch since our party would be starting right around lunchtime. For our main dish, we decided to serve these amazing Ham and Cheese Sliders by (a)musing foodie. OMG, soooo good! I tested out the recipe before the party and we’ve actually made these for dinner several times since. They were perfect for the party because I could make them ahead of time and then just pop them in the oven when the party started! I didn’t get a picture of ours, but they came out great. I split them apart and put them on a platter so they’d be easier for our guests to grab.
Along with the sliders we served pasta salad, veggies, and a relish tray along with desserts – all with a fun Pooh Bear spin on them.
The vegetable tray was my favorite part! Since veggies are a big hit at our parties, I decided to design a vegetable tray to look like Rabbit’s garden and place it center state on our food table. I’ve created a separate post all about our Rabbit’s Garden Veggie Tray and how to assemble it and keep the veggies looking nice and fresh.
Also on our food table were pretzel sticks and another family favorite, pickles. Pickles have nothing to do with Winnie the Pooh but sometimes you have to serve what you know everyone will love!
The Tigger Tails did not turn out exactly as I’d hoped. The tutorial I found online was great, but the orange icing color I bought was more gel-like than liquid-like, and when I used it, my white chocolate seized up. Rather than go out and buy more white chocolate and a new orange icing color I just decided to dip the pretzel rods in milk chocolate and cover in orange sugar sprinkles. Definitely not what I was going for, but they were still yummy :)
I ordered the cake from our local grocery store, which turned out to be a great idea since I didn’t have to worry about making a cake myself this year!

Decorating the Food Table
Decorating the food table was just as much fun as coming up with the food ideas! The large story book pages were the focal point and I created them using watercolors. I’ve received so many questions on how I made these pages so I created a separate post all about making these oversized storybook pages!
Around the table I used lots of pots painted to look like honey jars. I found picnic baskets and carts around our house to hold food.
I created the food labels in Photoshop using our Winnie the Pooh books. I used a few of our favorite passages from the book and passages that had to do with food and added them to the food labels. The images were scanned in from our books. I printed the cards on cream colored paper and made tiny easels for them out of twigs and twine.
Near the food table I filled a picnic basket with plates, napkins and silverware.
Well, there you have it, another party in the books! I enjoyed my time with Winnie the Pooh and am looking forward to the next party planning adventure – whenever that may be.
