This past weekend my Church’s mom and tot group and I had the blessing of throwing a shower for one of our moms who’s expecting twins! Yep, you read that right – we will be welcoming 2 little girls into our Church family very soon. The mom-to-be is prepping a vintage Winnie the Pooh nursery, and we thought that we would have the shower theme match the nursery theme. Turns out that finding anything classic Winnie the Pooh for a baby shower is not as easy as it sounds. The Winnie the Pooh baby decor that is out there is on the expensive side. It took a lot of creativity to pull this Winnie the Pooh baby shower. Thankfully we have some pretty creative and Pinterest savvy ladies in our group – me not being one of them. I think it turned out amazing! We all played a part in making this baby shower so amazing, but also not break the bank. The invites were made from home All of the decor was free or close to it – think dollar store. We spent a couple dollars on games from Etsy that were just printed off. The prizes were homemade and donated. Our budget mostly went to food. We went all out on food, but I think it was totally worth it. I mean, what’s a Baptist event without a lot of food? This is how the shower broke down:
Classic Winnie The Pooh Baby Shower Inspiration
Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower Decor:
Most of this decor was homemade or bought for cheap. All of the tablecloths, cups, napkins, plates, and art supply were from the dollar store. We utilized some of the presents for the new mom in the decor. Flowers were simple daisies and baby breath. Our goal was pretty and frugal. Check out the caption on each photo for how we made it, or where we bought it.
We printed off some classic Winnie the Pooh quotes and framed them with dollar store frames. We gave them to the mom-to-be as wall art for the nursery.
The vases were just mason jars that I glued some ribbon on and added a vintage pooh and piglet picture. I glued some ribbon around each little picture too.
For the food and drink tables one of the moms made these adorable hunny pots. They are just some of the tiny dollar store clay pots with some honey drips painted in yellow at the top, and ‘Hunny” in black paint. Inside each one is a little piece of craft foam and some moss on top. The actual sign is made up from popsicle sticks glued together.
Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower Food:
The food is where we spent the majority of our budget. We are Baptists, after all. Ask any Baptist what their 2 favourite things in the world are and they will reply Jesus and a good potluck. In that order. I once went to a church event where there were 5 dishes of mac and cheese. 5 – All at the same event and all of them were different. So, of course, we went big on food. On the menu was:
- Chicken Salad Pita Pockets (Kanga and Roo’s Pockets) with Lettuce, Mayo, Ranch, Bacon, and Chicken Salad
- Veggies plate (Veggies from Rabbits Garden)
- Pretzel Sticks (Eeyore’s House Sticks)
- Fruit Tray (Owls Fruit Tray)
- Pink Punch (Piglets Pink Lemonade)
- Water (Gophers Watering Hole)
- and Coffee
Let’s just take a small break to admire this amazing owl made from fruit. One of our moms in the group made this up – Amazing!
Dessert was these cupcake centrepieces and my sandwich cookies with marshmallow cream filling.
And last but not least…
Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower Games and Prizes
For the Winnie the Pooh shower games and prizes we went fun and simple. 2 of our games were just printouts from Etsy. Match the baby with its mom games, and a twin naming game. We also had 2 guessing games and Winnie the Pooh inspired ‘Don’t Say Baby’ game set up at the welcome table
All the prized were handmade and donated. You may recognize my 30-minute hoop wreaths in this box.
And there we have it. That was our vintage baby shower for our twins mom-to-be. It was so much fun to put together. We have a pretty awesome group of ladies that put their heart and love into making this shower. It was such a blessing to e able to put together this baby shower and celebrate God’s amazing gift of life.
