Throwing a Baby Shower? A Winnie the Pooh baby shower tea party not only says fun and cute, but can be done on any budget. Tea parties are very trendy today.
A tea party is a great idea that will allow the mom-to-be to feel relaxed and special. There is nothing like celebrating with friends over fragrant teas, finger sandwiches, little tarts that make it feel like an elegant affair.
Winnie the Pooh Baby Tea Party when throwing a baby shower
Having a tea party is a timeless choice for any baby shower, even a Winnie the Pooh baby shower tea party. You must admit, tea parties are a popular theme most ladies have enjoyed since we were little girls. Do you remember making tea for your friends when you were a young girl?
Some things never change. Well, lets get on with planning this tea party baby shower. Lets start with the invitations. This is a whimsical theme, so lets have some fun. I love to make my own. Thats just me. Since the theme is Winnie the Pooh, you may want to a make a card cut out of card stock. Cut out two mirrored shapes of Winnies Hunny Pot. Glue the outsides, except for the rim, together.
Inside the Hunny Pot, you may want to put an invitation with something such as:
You are invited
To Hundred Acres
To attend a
Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower Tea Party
Mom To Be Name
RSVP at your name and number
Included in this Hunny pot, you may want to have a packet of your favorite loose leaf tea.
Of course, if you are ladies that indulge in the occasional cigar, I recently received a loose leaf tea cigar as a baby shower invitation. It was wrapped in plastic wrap then in brown paper to look like a cigar that is given out to celebrate a birth. This cigar was different, as it was made with loose leaf tea. It had a gold label that gave the name of the tea on it. See, girls, there is a way to be creative and healthy.
Some other ideas for invitations:
You may want to find a specialty store that sells small jars of honey and add a small tin of loose leaf tea along with the above invitation and hand deliver the invitation. Your guests will be impressed at your attention to detail. Your mom-to-be will feel special and honored.
Heres an idea I love to add on the bottom of my invitations - as part of the shower, would you please bring a cooked, freezable meal for the mom to be and her new family to use to eat for after the baby is born. This is one great gift idea, it allows the new mom to spend more time with her new little one and less time doing house hold things.
The next step in creating your theme is deciding on your colors and decorations. This can be as simple or elaborate as you want it to be. For a Winnie the Pooh theme, the colors can be any color you choose, depending on the time of the year. Summer you may want to choose soft yellow or soft pink to bolder reds and yellows for fall. Of course, you can always use standard white linen table cloths, but remember this is a whimsical theme. Winnie the Pooh and friends, Eeyore, Tigger, Rabbit and Roo can always be included in your decorations, if you would like. Some will want to use linen table cloths and mismatched china and tea pots. Still others will want to use Winnie the Pooh themed plates and serve both hot and iced teas and non alcoholic tea cocktail! The important thing is to pay attention to detail.
As the guests arrive at Hundred Acres, take time to video tape them. Inform each guest ahead of time that you will be asking them to make a comment on the new addition to the family- use the theme- a star is born and coming to Hundred Acres- If the babys name is known and already picked out, have them mention the babys name and give a special message to the mom to be. Then give the mom-to-be the video as a remembrance of this very special day.
So lets plan the menu we have to feed the mom-to-be. Remember she Is eating for two. We've got some more great tea party ideas to help you create wonderful tea party food.
