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 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 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

Merci Beau­coup!

    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! :)
