It’s Winnie the Pooh & Friends!
The colors, the cake, the candy buffet, the ice cream bar, and the diaper cakes! — what’s not to love?
A dear friend of mine chose Winnie the Pooh as her baby’s room theme. So naturally, I HAD to surprise her at work with a Winnie the Pooh baby shower. 🙂
The characters have so many colors to play with, and I decided to use them all! Using the poster shown in the photo above (found online) as my inspiration for the food & drink labels, the diaper cakes, and the sweets. There were four party stations for the cutest Winnie the Pooh baby shower.
At the cake table, the cake was a fabulous depiction of the cuddly bear’s honey jar. Made by Edda’s Cake Designs in Pembroke Pines, FL. I made all four diaper cakes and topped them with stuffed Pooh characters that I found at a local store. Cupcakes were baked and iced by fellow coworkers in the office, while paper lanterns in the theme’s colors rounded off the cake table.
Next was the signing table, where a couple of Pooh story books were made available as a guest signing book to congratulate the mommy-to-be. In addition, an advice mini-bin was also available to provide the new mommy some parenting tips. A framed photo of the happy parents-to be was displayed, along with a gifted Pooh & Friends framed illustration and one of the diaper cakes.
The yummy sugar bar was not just a treat for the taste buds, but for the eyes as well, with a rainbow of sweets seen through glass jars. All of the guest of honor’s favorites were there — donuts, cookies, mini chocolate mousse, mini key lime pies, brownies, popcorn and an assortment of candies. One of my favorites was the mini chocolate mousse champagne flutes with a ribbon-tied spoon (so cute!).
And finally, the ice cream bar wowed all the guests with two choices of ice cream flavors and a variety of toppings. Not a sundae fan? Then mini Coke glasses and root beer were available to delight the root beer float fans.
So many fun party stations to honor the sweetest of mommies!
Enjoy the pics and be inspired…
