I was so delighted when I found out my good friend, D, was expecting baby #2. Recently it has become more popular for 2+ moms to have a “sprinkle” thrown in honor of their new arrival and I was so excited to throw one for her. She loves Classic Pooh so I decided on that as the theme for the sprinkle. With the help of her mother and good friend we came up with a menu and a few decoration ideas. We kept things simple and with the help of Pinterest we were able to stay on a small budget.
We decided to create a dish to represent each of the main characters, Pooh, Tigger, Pigglet, Rabbit, and Eeyore.
For Pooh, I found a recipe on Pinterest over at Mom Endeavors for honeycomb treats dipped in white chocolate. They were really easy to make and tasted sooooo good!
Pigs in a blanket were a perfect fit for Piglet.
I dyed some white chocolate and dipped pretzel rods to make the “Tigger Tales”. Check out my Chocolate Covered Pretzel Rods post for some tips and tricks to save you time!
Eeyore always seemed very simple to me and pretzel sticks were perfect to represent the branches he uses to build his house.
Rabbits garden was of course a variety of yummy veggies and dip.
To add a little more substance to the menu we made cucumber sandwiches and fruit kabobs.
The food signs were really simple to make. We took Styrofoam balls and cut them in half. Then we covered each half with moss and stuck half a thick Popsicle stick in the center. Using mini Popsicle sticks and a thin Sharpie I wrote each menu item and then glued them onto the thick stick. I had all the supplies we needed for this project but you would be able to find everything you needed at a craft store for around $10.
She had a whole set of the classic Pooh characters on her registry (at Buy Buy Baby) so I decided to buy a few to decorate the center of the table and double as part of her gift.
I always think a clothesline looks adorable at a shower filled with adorable little outfits. I found several adorable outfits at our local consignment sale for under $10.
We had the classic BINGO game for opening gifts.
We decided to have a Winnie The Pooh book for guests to write well wishes to D and baby. Every time they go to read a story they will see how much they both are loved.
For Parker’s monthly photos I had made a tie template and designed stickers. I thought it would be fun for everyone to decorate a milestone or month tie for baby C to wear. To save the template just right click on the image below and select “save image as”.
One of D’s good friends made her this adorable Pooh diaper cake. The inside was filled with all kinds of goodies and each diaper is still usable.
We chose a simple cake design and D’s mother found this edible sticker for the top.
