I just love it when I discover unusual holidays I never knew existed. In fact, today’s party idea board was inspired by “Teddy Bear Day”, which is apparently celebrated today, September 9. I took it one step further and turned this into a picnic party. Originally I wanted to go for a sleep over theme, but after reading about how there is actually a Teddy Bear Picnic Day (in July) I just had to create something marvelous around that.
Just about all of these elements could easily be translated indoors or outdoors. A few white sheets and some kid friendly snacks can make for quite the play party out in a local park, or even in your back yard. This is a classic, year round party theme you can’t go wrong with.
Here’s what I had in mind, and be warned….cuteness incoming!
