I'm a sucker for themes. Absolutely love them. So the other day while I was planning a picnic for our little family, I started to think of what theme our picnic could have. After some quick brain storming I remembered this song from my elementary school days.
I used to love this song so much growing up and dreamed of the day that I could actually go on a teddy bear picnic. So the idea for our teddy bear picnic was hatched.
The following is what I came up with:
Strawberry and Blue Berry Skewers
Teddy Bear Chow- I mixed Teddy Grahams with Some Gummi Bears in cupcake wrappers
Teddy bear cupcakes- I got the idea for these cupcakes from Pinterest HERE. They came out a little different but basically the same thing.
The Teddy bear toppers- I made them by hand, out of construction paper. I drew them and glued them to tooth picks. I than placed them on the our sandwiches.
Berry fruit skewers
Teddy Bear chow (Teddy Grahams and Gummi Bears)
Teddy Bear Cupcakes
Sandwiches with Teddy Bear toppers
Lemonade in glass jars
The hubby and I fixed all the food the morning of our picnic. After we were done, I packed all of our things in our picnic basket and we were off. We laid out a blanket on the grass, under a nice shady tree, and set up our food. Our honored guests, the teddy bears, arrived shortly after.
Doll Face was in heaven. She played with the teddy bears, ate her teddy bear food and laughed with glee. She thought it was amusing that the teddy bear chow had actual teddy bear shaped food.
By far, this has been the most exciting picnic that we have had so far. I am already planning more in the future.
