My baby turned three, and I feel so happy to have graduated from the terrible two’s. I am seriously standing in front of my house waiting for someone to drive up and hand me my diploma. It becomes immediately easier, right? This theme was crazy perfect for my little Isabella. She is so cuddly, smiley and strong just as I always imagine a baby brown bear to be. That’s why having a teddy bear picnic birthday party was just so perfect.
Darling Teddy Bear Picnic Decorations
I made a chocolate and vanilla buttercream cake and added this pretty cake topper that says “Isabella is Three”. I used three layers of cake (two chocolate and one vanilla), and my super secret buttercream frosting. Okay, it isn’t a secret because I posted it here. It is absolutely, 100% as good as it looks. It dries hard and each bite is soft inside and delightful.
Of course, we had to have cupcakes as well. These little cupcakes were so darn cute.
Teddy Graham Cupcakes
The post is coming. I can’t wait to share with you the tricks to these teddy graham cupcakes.
I adore these invitations we found on Etsy. This was love at first site, so I themed my whole party around it!
I set out some picnic baskets with balloons and bears all around. I loved this little collection in the entry with the sign “don’t feed the bears”. Get the printable here.
Kids love favors, so we handed out these little bear beach balls to each child.
At three years old, we had to do some fun toddler activities. The kids had a blast.
Here are some great ideas for activities:
- Parachute play using teddy bear balls
- Singing and dancing to nursery rhymes like Teddy Bear Picnic
- Eating jello bears (see below)
- Giant balloon (just because I really cannot resist big balloons)
- Teddy bear party in the pretty tent
- Pin the tail on the bear
- Bear pinata (see how much fun we had a my oldest’s Shopkins party with the pinata)
- Set up a picnic with little box lunches
