Teddy Bear Picnic 1st Birthday

I have a friend, Kate, who is going to be celebrating her son's first birthday very soon. She and her husband have a cute nickname for little Michael, Teddy Bear! So, its only natural that she is wanting that to play a big part in the party theme. She asked me to help her find some good ideas for her party, and while I was searching I came across a great children's song that I actually remembered from when I was little, The Teddy Bears Picnic... Well, once I had this idea in my head, I just had to run with it. Below, is a fun mood board I put together with lots of fun pictures I found on the web. After that, is the invitation for her party! Its going to be soooo cute!1-6 are found on a very cute blog called Imprintables. I love the red gingham table cloth, and using the yellow napkins as a pop of color.
7 is a great party package that can be found in an ETSY shop called Everything but the Cake. This comes with the banner, favor tags and even a very cute cake topper. So easy.
8 is an awesome Teddy Graham trail mix that would be great as a party snack, or put in small mason jars covered with fabric and tied with ribbon as a party favor. I found this idea on the Playdate Magazine webpage.
9 & 10 are great picnic ideas found at Canadian Family. I really like the idea of using picnic baskets as decor, and filling them with art supplies and fun stuff the kids can play with during the party.


  1. The party was a success! Thank you so much for all of your help! I used almost all of your ideas- I cannot thank you enough for everything!! I dropped your name to a couple people who asked about the invitation and mentioned it in my blog as well! Thank you again for everything!!!

  2. You have a lovely blog, I have really enjoyed reading it.

  3. Glad to know about this info on first birthday party. Last month, I attended my cousin’s birthday at one of grand venues in NYC. Decorated venue with flowers and ornaments and enjoyed well at party. Hired one of reputed catering services!
