Good morning! Last weekend we celebrated my son’s birthday and daughter’s Baptism with a Winnie the Pooh-themed party! We were able to be outside, which was wonderful. We kept the food and most of the decorations inside and around the food table. I created a sweet storybook backdrop as the focal point.
Most of the supplies for the decorations came from around our home. I also purchased some beautiful Pooh scrapbook paper and some classic Winnie the Pooh bees from the scrapbook section of Joann Fabrics – I added these everywhere!
The food card holders were made from sticks and twine – a simple DIY project that added a woodsy feel to our table.
I made a cute birthday hat from scrapbook paper and yarn. The DIY tutorial can be found here, Paper Party Hat.
I also made pins for the Godparents to wear to honor them at the party! The DIY tutorial for can be found here, Paper Medallion Pins.
I painted a sweet Happy Birthday plate to use at our party. It made a really lovely keepsake!
My son helped decorate for the party by coloring pictures in his Winnie the Pooh coloring book. These are probably my favorite decorations because of how excited he was to be helping!
We played a few games at the party like Pass the Honeypot (like Hot Potato) with a Pooh stuffed honeypot my son got for Christmas. My husband put together a playlist on Spotify of Pooh-themed songs to play the game to.
We also played Pin the Tail on Eeyore. I drew a picture of classic Eeyore with Sharpie on a big poster board and then drew a bunch of tails. It was fun watching everyone play :)
The final game was a guessing game. I got the game idea from this photo I found online and thought their Tigger rhyme was so cute! I filled mason jars with Honeycombs, Cheetohs, and pretzel sticks and made little guessing sheets for everyone to fill out. I decorated the jar tags with Pooh scrapbook paper.
Here are just a couple more pictures of the decorations. I made banners to help decorate the space, and I put all of the plates and utensils in a basket. The plates were clearance at Target back in the Fall and the napkins came from Joann Fabrics. The friendly bee is actually a pin cushion from my sewing supplies :)
So there you have it! I had a lot of fun planning this party. If you want to get even more ideas for a Winnie the Pooh-themed party, be sure to visit my Winnie the Pooh Pinterest Board – there are a ton of wonderful ideas out there!
I’ll be back Wednesday with a post about the party food and recipes!
