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 researching other Classic Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower ideas and 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!
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.
Classic Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower Menu:
- 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 but I always grab them locally at Michael’s!
I hope this Classic Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower inspires you for your own birthday or baby shower! I just love how neutral yet dreamy this theme is, don’t you?
