Ready to throw a creative Hundred Acre Wood party? You’ve come to the right place!
We are huge Disney and Winnie the Pooh fans in our family, but quickly found Disney’s Winnie the Pooh decor is not as widely available as it once was when starting to plan our baby’s birthday. Inspired by the lack of premade party supplies, we decided to throw our baby boy a Hundred Acre Wood themed party when he turned one—and it was all entirely DIY. This is the perfect theme for your littles in the coming months since spring is upon us, so I wanted to share with you how we did it in hopes that you can also throw the birthday (or baby shower!) bash of the year. 😊
Hundred Acre Wood Food
The food will always be the most important part of a party in my book, so here are pictures of what we put together for snacks since our party took place in-between meal times.
These are made just like how you would make rice crispy treats, but we substituted honey comb cereal and added in just a little bit extra marshmallow and honey. Sweet, sticky, and amazingly delicious!
Pooh Stix AKA Pretzel Sticks
Inspired by the beloved game that Winnie the Pooh plays with his friends in the Hundred Acre Wood: tossing sticks into the river from a bridge and watching them float to the other side.
Piglet’s Protein Skewers
Skewers are so much fun! These are summer sausages (I would suggest pork/beef) with cheddar and pepper jack cheeses on toothpicks! Tip: lay them out on a flat platter.
Rabbit’s Garden Veggies
I mean… How perfectly does this work out? Every party needs a veggie plate!
Tigger Tails AKA Cheetos
Other ideas for the tails involved a lot of sweets, and our baby is allergic to nuts so those didn’t work as well for us. We simplified!
Eeyore’s Cheerful Berry Blend
Even Eeyore can’t help but be happy after having some of these yummy fruits.
Owl’s Salsa of Knowledge (he knows ALL in the Hundred Acre Wood)
For Hundred Acre Wood party favors and celebration dessert:
Winnie the Pooh’s Smackerel o’ Hunny
We had so many baby jars from making our own food blends that we didn’t know what to do with… And then it hit me! The sign is held with yellow play-dough.
Honey Pot Cupcakes
Yellow cake with a splash of honey added, with a store bought vanilla frosting dyed yellow. Swirl around instead of spreading!
These were there to accommodate the children attending that were gluten intolerant. They were free from gluten, nuts, and soy, and our little bee friends loved them 😉
Everyone LOVED all the food, and moreover they really loved the signs that we created with crafting sticks to label it all. These matched the big sign we made and put in the grass saying [our son’s name]’s HUNDRED AKER WOODS that was put out to lead guests to the party.
Here is where we had to really get creative. I am sorry that not more was pictured. The setting was under a large oak tree, which was perfect for a Hundred Acre Woods mood.
For these, we got yellow paper lanterns and attached 3D bees to them with gold paint dripping down. You can let your imagination go wild here!
Cardboard! Painted with multiple layers to make it look more realistic, and then stuck to the tree with string (because this was my slip up & I forgot it would be hard to make cardboard stay by or hang from a tree–especially on a blustery day!)
Pot of Hunny
This was a fun activity people enjoyed doing for our baby boy. We had strips of scrapbooking paper and pretty pens for people to write sentiments to put in a hunny pot “time capsule.” It is a sturdy glass jar painted with acrylics.
Red & Yellow Balloons
Birthday Boy Outfit
Weather was not on our side; the original outfit plan was red shorts with his yellow onesie and the red bowtie and suspenders. It quickly became an outfit with jeans and a jacket, complete with a gold birthday crown!
Our kiddo was only turning one, and it was mostly adults attending with a playground in the vicinity for kids, so we had Disney music playing and bubbles, as well as a volleyball court set up. The dynamic of any party is changed based on location! However, here are ideas I had before we decided to put our focus elsewhere:
Pin the Tail on Eeyore
Kanga Congo Line (hopping involved, of course!)
Decorate Your Own Party Hats (like the characters!)
Photo Booth—we would have included Mr. Sanders door!
That was our child’s first birthday, and I think it turned out great! Hundred Acre Woods as a party theme was said by our guests to be unique and completely adorable, and they LOVED the honey pot party favors. I hope these DIY ideas help you throw your own fun and cute birthday party or baby shower for loved ones. 😊
In case you are wondering, yes our kid will one day be as big of a Disney fan as us haha! It is simply in this family’s DNA. On a side note, we apologize for not being as active lately. You can expect us to post new content on Tuesday mornings and Friday evenings starting next week!
Ta ta for now!!
