The final piece of Lucas’ Winnie the Pooh birthday was the decorations. I went with a subtle and earthy color scheme for his party. Brown, white, blue and green.
I wanted a touch of the party in our living room also so I decorated the mantel with some Hundred Acre inspired decor.
The tables were covered in burlap. For centerpieces I used a pot full of yummy cake pops that I bought from a local bakery, platters of cookies and mason jars with hydrangeas.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the edible centerpieces!
The children had a small picnic area to sit and eat.
The bubbles floating by were care of the bubble machine we had set up nearby… the little ones loved it.
The play area even got a Winnie the Pooh facelift for the day!
I made a little fabric bunting to hang over the sand pit. (You haven’t seen our play area progress yet…well there is a small sneak peak. We worked our tails off to get it done before the party).
I even decorated our pergola a bit so that it tied in with our colors.
We had one planned activity (besides the fun in the play area) which was a butterfly hunt for the older kids. However, it was a blustery day in the hundred acre wood and the little fabric butterflies that I had made kept blowing away in the wind. The kids didn’t seem to mind that there was not a butterfly hunt though, they played and played and played!
As they were leaving, I gave each of them one of these adorable mini crayon rolls that I ordered off of Etsy. They hold 4 crayons and were only $1.70 each! Each one rolls up and ties with a ribbon. They are perfect for a mother to toss in her purse to use and restaurants, or doctor offices or even on road trips. They were a big hit!
