DIY Disney: Winnie the Pooh Party

Bounce on over to the Hundred Acre Woods with me, as I share (far too many) photos and tips for hosting a BUDGET FRIENDLY Disney themed party!

For the last few months our daughter has been in love with that silly ol' bear we all know and love, Winnie the Pooh. So I put on my thinking cap, and headed over to Pinterest for some inspiration. With technology and accessibility of things such as Amazon Prime, it's easy to burn through a huge amount of money on something like I party.

It's only natural to want the BEST party ever for your kid. You love and cherish them, why not throw the biggest, baddest, most pinterest worthy party ever?!!

Friend, please if you click away from this post before reading until the end I beg you to please remember this.
Build Memories with YOUR children,  not a pinterest board of activities never completed. 
Time with our children goes so quickly, and especially in the toddler years, they LOVE to be with YOU. 

Now that I've stepped down from my soap box, here's my quick tips for hosting an AMAZING (Budget Friendly)  Disney Themed birthday party! 

Set a Budget & Stick to It!
It's so hard, again with everything available at your finger tips, it's so easy to add just one more quick thing. Resist the urge to over spend, stick to your budget!

I actually was able to stretch our budget pretty far, thanks to all the Easter Sales. I shopped for the party the day after Easter, and got lots of carrot themed decorations, and yard games for the party. 

If you have a theme, look around the sales and see if something can be inspired by the theme. 

Get the Kids involved & DIY
If you want to host a party your kids will love, and be excited about, get THEM involved. Hype the party up;
  • talk about costumes,
  • do some DIY's together,
  • discuss who is coming
My oldest got REALLY into the costuming for the Winnie the Pooh party, and declared that I would be Eeyore,  and daddy would be Christopher Robin.  So, of course I found a way to sneak in a little extra money to the budget so I could grab this shirt from Etsy. 



Simplify Everything!
Keep everything simple, and if someone offers to help. LET THEM! You want to be IN your pictures, and ENJOYING your kid right? If someone offers to help, let them! We kept our menu simple, and I had the grandparents make the sandwiches while I took a zillion pictures and experienced my toddler look around at all the decorations. 

Thanks for joining me in Zuzu's hundred Acre Woods, I hope you'll take a moment to watch our Youtube video of photos from the party, and give us a thumbs up if you thought it was adorable! <3
