Scarlett's Winnie the Pooh 2nd Birthday Party

I'm going to try to do a "Throwback Thursday" post now and then, now that I'm back into this blogging game, and have so much to catch up on.  Today I wanted to highlight Scarlett's second birthday party.

During the spring and summer time, Scarlett became pretty obsessed with "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh."  She picked that as the theme for her birthday party.  I had so much fun planning the party!  Fewer things in life are more fun for me than kid party planning!

Scarlett's birthday is July 11, so we had been moved into our house for a couple of months at that time, and were so excited to have her party here!  Our back patio was the perfect place for the food setup.  Our colors were yellow and red in honor of Winnie the Pooh and his red t-shirt.



We already had the many stuffed animals that served as party decor.  The string of lights hanging around the table came from the Target Dollar Spot.

 I printed out the map of the Hundred Acre Wood from somewhere free online.  And the little beehive luminary came from Pat Catan's, I believe.

 I got a bunch of terra cotta pots, stuck on these scrapbook bee stickers, used a permanent marker to write "hunny" on each, and painted the "honey" around the top.  So simple and cheap!


We sat these books in random places.  I found some of them at Goodwill for $1 each, and my mother-in-law just happened to have some of the same books as well.

Luke made this adorable sign from scrap wood.  It might have been my favorite thing, and we love it so much, it's still out in our yard.

 I used Power Point to create this banner

 I found these lanterns at Hobby Lobby for a few bucks apiece, and I believe we found the bees at Pat Catan's.

I decided to make homemade cupcakes instead of spending a ton of money on a cake.  And I made the little tags in Power Point.


Here we are at party time!  Scarlett picked out her dress, and to my delight it was on clearance at Target for $8!  Score! 

I tried to get creative with the food labels (which, again, were created in Power Point).



I love how these "Tigger Tails" turned out! Just pretzel sticks covered with orange candy melts, and drizzled with melted chocolate.



...And the next few are pictures of everyone at the party.  It was a fun day!  Thanks to all of our family and friends who celebrated with us!




The birthday girl!
