Birthday Bear Picnic Ideas for National Teddy Bear Day

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!

What type of cute party would you throw themed out with teddy bears? A birthday party, a sleep over? How about a baby shower?

Pumpkin Patch Birthday Party

Happy Wednesday!

Today I’ve got a fun party idea board to share with you. I originally envisioned a fall birthday party for kids, but I think a lot of these elements would be great at a school carnival or neighborhood block party. Between the cute pumpkin cupcakes to the pumpkin bowl games, kids could have a lot of fun just running around and enjoying the beautiful weather outside! If you wanted to take this event to the next level, I’ve shared this post with tons of ideas for hosting a pumpkin decorating party. Here’s what I was thinking:

Snowman Birthday Party Ideas

Are you nice and cozy and warm?  As I write this I am, but I know January in Florida is some of our coldest time of the year.  In fact, I’m pretty sure it is colder now then it was around Christmas.

Unfortunately, we don’t have the “snow cold”, just “Florida cold” here, so we don’t get to make snowmen any time of the year, much less after Christmas. One of my wishes as a kid was to have a snowman birthday party. I thought that should be the inspiration for this week’s idea board. So without further ado:
