Description

For Declan's Hundred Acre Wood first birthday, I went with a Classic Winnie the Pooh theme.

Design Inspiration

A classic Pooh print fabric from Hobby Lobby.

Project Details

Invitations:  Rachellola on Etsy

Wooden Sign:  Tore apart a wooden pallet (easy to do and free)

Table Decorations: I used the Classic Pooh printed fabric along with a burlap runner.  I borrowed and collected a few A.A Milne books to display along with some stumps that I polyurethaned.  A few milk glasses filled with twigs finished the table decor.

Food:  I had a chalkboard sign that read "for the rumbly in your tumbly" inviting people to grab some food.  On the menu was Pooh's Honey Ham Sliders, "Piglets" in a blanket, Rabbit's Garden Pasta Salad, Tigger Tails (chocolate dipped pretzel rods), Eeyore's Feelin' {Blue}berry Cobbler and Honey Hibiscus Iced Tea served in mason jars

Burlap Sign: a burlap kit from Michaels that I cut out the letters for "Declan Is One" with any leftover Pooh fabric.

Smash Cake: Made by a dear friend.  It was made low sugar, gluten free and with all natural dyes.  Delicious and perfect for babies first taste of the good stuff.

Chalkboard Sign: made myself and printed at staples (very easy to do)

Cupcakes: Sam's Club and made the cupcake toppers myself.

Favorite Items

Advice

I carried in my purse for over two months a swatch of my inspiration fabric.  Pulled it out a lot as I was able to pick up supplies on sale here and there to mix and match.
