This March, I threw a classic Winnie the Pooh baby shower for one of my best and oldest friends, and it was such a fun yet challenging theme to work with! She isn’t over-the-top girlie like I am, so right away I knew I wanted to do the Classic Winnie the Pooh theme and somehow create a dreamy little woodland. Something, soft and neutral with a natural forest vibe, which is a lot harder than just an explosion of pink decor!
I spent time on Pinterest, bought and staged until I had just the right pieces. This is my preferred way of party planning so you know exactly what goes where and are never scrambling day-of. Really, the key is just planning in advance and keeping things as simple as possible, that means food doubling as decor and not overextending yourself so you’re prepping too many things last minute.
The key decor items were these Classic Winnie the Pooh art prints I framed at the table and this Winnie the Pooh map I framed and put at the bar with “Piglet’s Punch” (i.e. the mimosas!). I also got this cute Winnie the Pooh and set him up on this stool I found at Hobby Lobby. I always like to decorate with fresh flowers, so that was a no-brainer. But one of my favorite elements of the table are these green vines I picked up at Michael’s; I intertwined fresh baby’s breath the day of the party and it really brought the table setting to life. I hadn’t planned on making the table tents or the banner myself, but after someone I was working with on Etsy completely vanished on me, I was in a total bind! I ended up creating these in Photoshop myself and it was way easier than I thought.
For food, we had:
- Rabbit’s Garden (Veggies and dip!)
- Fruit & Hunny
- Christopher Robin’s Picnic (Postino’s bruschetta!)
- Tigger Tails (I made these the night before and they were quite tasty!)
And of course, cupcakes and mimosas and I had some pasta catered, too. I am not very crafty so if I can pull off the Tigger Tails, anyone can! You just roll pretzel rods in Wilton candy melts which you can get at Michael’s. Amazon also has them.
