Silly Old Bear!

I have always had a special place in my heart for Winnie the Pooh since I was a little girl. My affection for this bear and his friends continued to grow as I did, and so did my affinity for bees! When my family and I found out a new Winnie the Pooh movie was being released this month, we threw a little party to commemorate!
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 Something Chic Designs 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 GoodsHobby 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.

Hip, hip, hooray! A fun time was had by all in our re-creation of Pooh Corner! We’re really excited to see the new film and hope to hear more of Pooh Bear’s wisdom, such as this little heart-warming quote:

“If there ever comes a day when we can’t be together, keep me in your heart, I’ll stay there forever.” ~Winnie the Pooh

    Where did you get the felt place mats ? I love them and I’m planning a baby shower and that would be perfect as a back drop in the paerk!

    • Hi Stephanie! I purchased the placemats at Home Goods, though it was a few years ago! It never hurts to check though! And I would also check on-line! Hope this helps! :)

    Hi I was wondering where you got Pooh with the bee and the Piglet plush toys?

    Thanks you very much!!

      Oh, Autumn, I purchased them at the Disney store years ago, so I’m afraid they’re probably no longer available! Have you searched on-line for something similar? :)
