“If you go down to the woods today you’re sure of a big surprise
If you go down to the woods today you’d better go in disguise
For every bear that ever there was will gather there for certain, because
Today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic.”
–Teddy Bears’ Picnic Song
We were so excited to do a Teddy Bears Picnic dessert table for Dexter’s First Birthday Party. It’s a classic theme and we love a good picnic but most of all, we got to work with some cute and cuddly Teddy Bears!
We used a classic Blue and Red colour palette from the gingham table cloths, checkered linen, buntings, kites, paper crafts and prints. Our wooden trestle table was the perfect picnic setting and we added a vintage feel by using wooden crates, drink crates, wooden cake stands, picnic baskets, and rustic wire baskets. Dexter’s mum, Bonnie, did an amazing job turning their backyard into a picnic park decorating it with balloons and hand crafted paper trees for the walls. Bonnie sourced that darling Teddy Bear Birthday cake, the yummy sugar and choc chip cookies and caramel pop corn. We filled up the picnic table with blue and red lollies and adorable Teddy Bear cupcakes by Kake Krumbs.
We love designing the custom backdrop and all the personalised chocolate bars, drink bottles, lolly labels and signs that brought cuteness overload to the Teddy Bears Picnic dessert table.
Our favourites were the personalised details and our hand crafted accessories:
- Dexter’s high chair we decorated with personalised buntings and photos of him each month from his birth styled and taken by his very creative mum Bonnie
- the Welcome sign we decorated with the cuddly Oliver, Bonnie’s Teddy Bear she’s kept all these years
- the picnic basket lolly label holders
- the blue and red paper buntings and kite decors
- the vintage Teddy Bears we used to decorate the dessert table and gift cart
It was a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon, a perfect day to celebrate Dexter’s First Birthday and share a picnic with family and friends. We are so delighted to be part of such a wonderful occasion. Happy Birthday Dexter!
