Teddy Bear Picnic - The Decorations

Couple of weeks ago we celebrated Madi's 2nd Birthday with a Teddy Bear Picnic!   I was a little hesitant about the theme (thought it might be a little bit "babyish") but it could not have been more appropriate for a bunch of 2 year olds!


I used a large matchbox and covered it with a paper that had "wood" flecks in it and had the Teddy Bear Picnic poem on the front.  You opened it up and a small bear awaited you with the invitation to the party!

It's hard to have parties in the winter time because you are limited to being inside........ but I wanted it to have a "woodsy" or park-like feel.  So, we took out some of the furniture and I gathered several fake trees to create a park-like theme.

Red/white checked blankets for the kiddos to sit on while eating their lunch.

A couple of bears were eating their lunch, too!

Bears and bear paws lined the stairs.....

Bear ears awaited each guest......

Party Favors:
Teddy Bear Picnic book and gummy bears

The Cake:

Was absolutely amazing!!!  We used Cakeheads Bakery, which we have for the last several parties.  They NEVER disappoint!!

And the birthday girl's dress.......

So.....there's the decorations!!!  I will do another post on the party itself..........come back and check it don't want to miss out seeing the puppet show that we put on for the kids!!
