Throw a Rumbly in Your Tumbly Party!
If you want to throw a gender-neutral baby shower, then look no further than Winnie the Pooh for inspiration. With his friendly yellow face and honey themed accompaniments, this is sure to be one sweet party.
Choose items in pastel blues and honey yellows. You can make a lot of the items yourself or check out your local thrift store for bargain finds you can transform. From centerpieces to favors, there is a myriad of possibilities for a 100 Acre Wood themed party, so check out these ideas to get you started.
Make these adorable hunny cupcakes by whipping up a batch of your favorite cupcakes and place them in mini terracotta pots. Frost your cakes with yellow frosting and add a cute bee decoration.
Donut you wish you could eat this right now?
You can make the hive with a styrofoam base and then cover that with aluminum foil. Attach donut holes to this with toothpicks. You can use buttercream frosting to fill gaps and then decorate them with fake bees.
Piglets in a Blanket
For a super easy and super delicious party snack, make these piglets in a blanket with mini-sausages and a tube of crescent rolls. Guests will appreciate a nice hot snack and the cute Winnie the Pooh themed pun.
Winnie the Pooh Dessert Table
Make a stunning balloon garland for a backdrop for your dessert table. Purchase balloons in blues, whites, and golds and blow them up to different sizes to create drama. You can layer them onto fishing line so they can be hung into an arch shape.
For a sweet and salty snack, make these Tigger Tails with pretzel rods dipped in orange candy that melts about 3/4 of the way until coated. Allow them to harden and then use melted chocolate to create your "stripes."
Eeyore's Punch is great for baby boy showers. Use a pack of blue raspberry kool-aid and mix it with 2 liters of sprite and 2 liters of Lemonade. Add cute little yellow duckies to the top for decoration.
Rabbits Carrot Garden
This is also a great idea for a spring or Easter themed party.
Crumble up chocolate cake in a bowl for the "soil" and dip strawberries in orange candy melts to make them look like carrots. Allow to harden before placing them on top of the edible soil. Add a sign that says "Rabbits Carrot Garden."
Winnie the Pooh Utensils
Purchase yellow plastic utensils and wrap them in a red napkin to really set the tone. You can place them in a blue-painted terracotta pot that will look adorable and could also be used as a centerpiece too!
Hundred Acre Woods Decor
Blues and yellows are a must for a Winnie the Pooh party. You can mix and match and have blue and yellow tablecloths if you so choose. Hang delicate yellow paper lanterns from the ceiling to resemble bee hives.
Rumbly Tumbly Snack Table
Make a fun snack table by making a chalkboard sign which says "Rumbly Tumbly Snack Table" and add items like yellow disposable plates and a plush Pooh bear. Use a plastic table cloth to make cleaning up a cinch.
Don't Say Baby Game
For a fun baby shower game, paint clothes pegs like tigger tails or use patterned washi tape.
Winnie the Pooh Diaper Cake Centerpiece
A diaper cake centerpiece is a great gift to bestow on the mother-to-be. You don't have to spend a fortune either since you can upcycle an old basket you have. Then purchase multi-packs of diapers to make up your diaper cake.
Winnie the Pooh Centerpiece
Make this lovely vintage-looking centerpiece with satin yellow paint and terracotta pots.
Add the drips by placing the pot upside down and use your paintbrush to create the shapes. Then using black paint, add the word "Hunny" on the front. Then you can add foam to place your flowers in and add a picture of Winnie the Pooh.
Winnie the Pooh Outdoor Centerpiece
To make a lovely outdoor centerpiece, you can use a large wood slice to give the effect of being in the woods. Then place a vase of flowers on this and add a framed quote or picture from Winnie the Pooh.
