So, I’ve been wanting to write my first blog post and I thought my daughter’s 2nd birthday party would be a good place to start. Addie turned TWO and loves Winnie the Pooh, so that was the theme we choose for her party.

Of course, I started a Pinterest board for it.

We decorated with books. And I had my husband pick up the tulips at Publix the day of the party. In the jar are “Honey Bears” a.k.a. Teddy Grahams 😉

I got these clay pots at the Dollar Store! 2 pots for $1!

I made Roo’s Ranch Dip with a packet of Ranch mix and half plain Greek yogurt and half sour cream (trying to make a healthier version!)

These were just potato chips.

If you’re wondering where I got all the signs for the food, I Googled pictures of the characters and put them into a Word document in two columns and used different fonts and colors to go with them.

Here are Piglet’s Pigs in a Blanket.

These Hunny Ham Sandwiches were the bomb! I got the recipe here.

I got these containers from Walmart for $5 each and it’s just some Countrytime Lemonade and Publix Sweet Tea! I got the paper straws from Publix also and the cups. The paper plates, napkins and silverware were from the Dollar Store. I have learned that they are the best place to get party supplies for cheap!

I had my husband construct the “tree” from brown packing paper, which I picked up at Office Depot like the day before the party. I cut out the leaves from green construction paper and I made a couple of bumblebees from pipe cleaners and poked them into the yellow paper lantern, which I got in a three-pack from Party City.

We did a “Pin the tail on Eeyore” that I found at Disney.

I made this “Pooh” outfit with yellow fabric paint and a red shirt and Pooh ears I got from Amazon. They also have Piglet and Tigger ears, which we had also.

I got these Winnie the Pooh plushes from the Disney store and printed out these quotes:

“As soon as I saw you, I knew an Adventure was about to happen.”

FUNNY STORY: My husband started a fire right before the party started! We were trying to make this popcorn recipe below and somehow the the brown paper bag caught on fire in the microwave!
