Winnie the Pooh Birthday Party Decorations

“Nobody can be uncheered with a balloon.” — Winnie the Pooh
When decorating for your party, start by mixing up a bunch of cheerful colors such as yellow, green, blue, red, and pink in your balloons, streamers, and tableware.

Make a Welcome Banner — Hang a banner over your entry that reads, “Welcome to the Hundred Acre Wood!”

Have Pooh Greet Your Guests — Make or buy a cardboard Winnie the Pooh Lifesize standup and set him by your party entrance as a cheery greeter and decorative focal point.

Make Pooh’s Thinking Spot — In many Winnie the Pooh stories, there was a big tree that Pooh referred to as his thinking spot. Make your own tree out of colored paper and hang it on your wall. You could also use Winnie the Pooh removable wall decals for instant Pooh party atmosphere!

Float Some Bees and Butterflies — In the magical Hundred Acre Wood there were lots of flowers, honey, butterflies and bees. Use fishing line to hang some of your own  colorful tissue paper flowers from your ceiling.

Use Your Favorite Winnie the Pooh Quotes — Pooh, Piglet, Christopher Robin and all their friends are well known for some great sayings. Pick some of your favorites and write them out on large pieces of paper that you can hang in different places throughout your party area. Looking for some inspiration? Check out these Winnie the Pooh Quotes to help get you started.

Hang a Piñata — Hang a fun bumble bee pinata as an eye catching party decoration that can also double as a party activity.

Make a Great Centerpiece — Paint a large vase to look like Pooh’s “Hunny” pot. Use this to anchor a colorful balloon bouquet in your party colors. If you have any plush Winnie The Pooh toys, use them to surround the balloons on your party table.

Here are some party supplies that can make great additions to your decorations:

Winnie the Pooh Birthday Games and Activities

Pin the Tail on Eeyore — Download and enlarge a free Disney clipart picture of Eeyore (without his tail, of course) to create your own game of Pin the Tail on the Donkey. Give each child a tail and see who can come the closest to pinning it onto Eeyore while blindfolded.

Bee Tag — Give each child a strip of bee stickers and then it’s each bear for himself! The aim of the game is to ‘sting’ someone by placing a sticker on their back without them noticing. At the end of the game the person with the least stickers is declared the champion, but the person with the most stickers on their back gets a prize.

Eeyore’s Tail Tag — Tuck a sock or strip of fabric from the back of each child’s waistband to make a tail. The object of the game is to see how many people’s tails you can grab before losing your own. Once someone gets your tail, you are out until the next round. Whoever collects the most tails is the winner.

Honey Pot Toss — Divide guests into two teams. Set up two large bowls (honey pots) and line each team up a specific distance away from their bowl. Give each child five “bees”. (These can be plastic toy insects or wooden clothespins painted with black and yellow stripes.) Have them take turns trying to get as many of their bees into their team honey pot as they can. The team with the most bees in their honey pot wins.

Wake Up, Sleepy Bear — Select one child to be the bear. The bear hides behind a large object such as a couch or bush and covers his eyes. All the other children start a distance away from the bear and call out, “Wake up, sleepy bear” as they draw nearer. The bear can wake at any point during the game. If anyone gets close enough to tag the bear before he wakes, they win the round. However, if the bear wakes and tags anyone before they can run away to the home base, the bear wins and the tagged player is the bear in the next round.

Honey Pot Hunt — One person is the bear for this game who gets to hide his honey pot (this can be a painted flowerpot or any object you choose). Once it is hidden, the rest of the group sets out to find it. The bear can give hot and cold clues to make the search easier. Whoever finds the honey pot gets to be the bear in the next round of the game.

Bumblebee Hot Potato — Use a small toy bumble bee for a Winnie the Pooh version of hot potato. Don’t get stuck holding the bee when the music stops or you’re out. Oh Bother!

Show a Movie — Need to calm things down a little? Have a classic Winnie the Pooh movie playing somewhere in your party area for tired little bears to crash.

Winnie the Pooh Birthday Party Foods

When Pooh is feeling a little eleven o’clockish, the best solution is a little smackerel of honey.
Here are some food ideas to keep the rumblys from everybody’s tumblys!

Pooh Bear Sandwiches — Use a large bear shaped cookie cutter to shape some peanut butter and honey sandwiches.

Tigger Tails and Cheese — Use a twisty variety of pasta, such as fusilli or gemelli, to make your favorite recipe of mac and cheese. Instant Tigger tails!

Rabbit’s Garden Veggie Tray — Set our a variety of healthy veggies and fruit and add a Winnie the Pooh themed label.

Bear Snacks — Set out some bowls of Teddy Graham crackers or gummy bears.

Frozen Honey Pops — Start with a popsicle form. Sprinkle a quarter inch of granola in the bottom of each form. Then add a squirt of honey. Fill the rest of the popsicle with vanilla yogurt and freeze overnight. To remove the pops from the form, run them briefly under hot water.

Winnie The Pooh Cake — An easy way to make a cake shaped like Pooh’s head is to bake your favorite variety of cake in a round pan. Set it on a platter adding two cupcakes for Pooh’s ears. Frost the whole thing with a yellow frosting (you can add food coloring to white icing to get the right color). Then finish by using black decorator icing to draw on Pooh’s face.
