I have always had a special place in my heart for Winnie the Pooh since I was a little girl. My affection for this bear and his friends continued to grow as I did, and so did my affinity for bees! When my family and I found out a new Winnie the Pooh movie was being released this month, we threw a little party to commemorate!
The whole feel was very natural, with references to bees, honey and the 100 Acre Wood friends. I utilized very neutral colors, paired with shades of yellow and touches of red, and burlap fabric. I designed the paper products, with graphics purchased from The Dotted Daisy and Graphique. For the backdrop, I tied four felt placemats together whose pattern resembled that of a honeycomb and also attached a plastic red balloon that I spray-painted red that is featured in the movie.
For the topper design, I created Winnie the Pooh dressed up as a bee and since a premise of the movie includes the characters searching for tails, I decided to reference them with their ears and tails!
The favors were placed on a small kids table adorned with flowers in a honey pot and offering honey bears and pots, while the picnic basket carried some decorative plush animals and Winnie the Pooh coloring books. Also on the table were paper mache books with a custom cover, inside which included crayons for the children.
Some additional decorations included a turned over crate displaying Winnie the Pooh items and a framed quote.Lastly, I hung a sign up with "100 Acre Woods" printed on paper with a burlap graphic and attached it to an embroidery circle on a tree by the decor.
Hip, hip, hooray! A fun time was had by all in our re-creation of Pooh Corner! We're really excited to see the new film and hope to hear more of Pooh Bear's wisdom, such as this little heart-warming quote:
"If there ever comes a day when we can't be together, keep me in your heart, I'll stay there forever." ~Winnie the Pooh
