Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower, T-t-t-ttttterrific

Last week I told you about my childhood (and adulthood) love of Winnie the Pooh in my post on Things You Must Have a Baby To Do.  This week, I'm continuing my tribute to the Disney classic with ideas on hosting a Pooh Bear themed baby shower.  It's naturally a gender neutral choice and the predominant colors of honey yellow and sage green emphasize this.  



The Invitations

I love the vintage look of this invitation by Shutterbug Sentiments.  It's a digital file, so you buy the image and print as many invitations as you need.

Design Serendipity makes this invitation and can also make matching cupcake toppers, place cards and signs - just ask.

The Menu

Drinks - Hot tea, just like Christopher Robin served Pooh and friends, with all kinds of flavor choices.  For the summer, try lemonade and iced tea.  Click HERE for a super simple Apple and Honey Iced Tea recipe from epicurious.com.  

Food - Honey, haycorns and thistles would be ideal, but being that the latter two are figments of Christopher Robin's imagination, stick with honey.  Check out all the delicious honey foods below.

This Honey Bee Cornmeal Cupcake is straight out of 
the Hundred Acre Woods as far as I can tell 
(click HERE for the recipe).

This Spiced Honey Cake (click HERE for the recipe) 
looks so delicious I want to lick my computer screen.

A bowl of honey hard candies like the ones below 
from Vintage Confections would look and taste golden.

  


The Decorations

These paper circles by dmk Supply can easily be made into cupcake toppers by attaching a toothpick or lollipop stick.  They are made from the original 1964 children's book.

This confetti by Joy in the Journey comes in three different shapes: Pooh himself, Piglet and the two friends together.  I love the tan plaid.  Use the coupon code "summer10" for 10% off your purchase.

Here's an idea for an inexpensive and fitting centerpiece: a hurricane/vase full of acorns. Of course living near an Oak tree (in the fall) would make this DIY project sure thing, but if that's not the case go to the Acorno Wedding Guide website to buy yourself some acorns by the pound.

The burlap material used to make these flags by Celebrate With Fun has a natural, woodsy feel that will work perfectly with the Pooh bear theme.  The words can be customized to read "Sweet Treats" (hang it above the refreshment table) or "Baby Last Name" or "Congratulations Mom-to-be-Name."

This game requires guests to match the the Disney movie with its famous song.  Made by a Princess is also hosting an awesome GIVEAWAY - after you head to their Etsy shop and see all the cool stuff they make and sell, check back for details to be posted later today.

I love (and own) one of these honey dippers from Crate and Barrel that would be a perfect favor for your Winnie the Pooh baby shower.

The Thank You Cards

With all the gifts the momma-to-be will receive it's likely she'll need a thank you card or two.  These gorgeous thank you cards are hand painted by For Stationery Sake (also featured in Summer Baby Shower, Bzzzz).  Truth be told, I'm obsessed with this Etsy crafter.  Not only is she offering 10% off any item in her shop with the coupon code "NEXSTOP", she is also GIVING AWAY this set of thank you cards.  CLICK HERE to enter!!!  Now that is sweet.
