Teddy bears picnic: create the perfect children’s outing
Who doesn’t love teddy bears? Cute and cuddly, they are adored by children and adults all over the world and the age-old teddy bears picnic couldn’t be more popular than it is today. This classic, gender-neutral party theme is a great way to get the little ones to mingle with their friends and bring their favourite teddy bear for a fun day out in a beautifully decorated garden or home.
How to add colour to your teddy bears picnic
The iconic teddy bear, which dates back to the early 20th century, is traditionally brown in colour. And while this is still a firm favourite, don’t be afraid to create a teddy pears picnic full of vibrant hues. This is where our range of Roly Junior Brights comes in. These plush teddies come in cobalt blue, hot pink, green, purple and yellow and will give your teddy bears picnic a real wow-factor.
Bears love honey (we made decorative honey pots) and all things sweet so fill some tin pails with jelly beans and large paper bags with extra goodies and healthy snacks (great as takeaway gifts too) for the kids and their cuddly friends.
If you go out in the woods today…
Whether it’s a birthday celebration or a get-together with friends, there are many ways to make your teddy bears picnic a party to remember. More than likely, your teddy bears picnic will be held outdoors, particularly as we head into the summer months. Scatter some picnic blankets around the area and put a collection of the cutest teddy bears together – Giant Roly, Flossy, Bobby and Charlie.
Big and small bears will have the kids super excited about their special day out. Tie balloons to the wicker baskets and let the teddy bears take centre stage, you can even transport your food in picnic baskets to really set the scene for your teddy bears picnic.
Bringing the outdoors in: how to create a teddy bear’s picnic inside your home
A baby shower or a first birthday is the perfect occasion for a pretty, pastel-coloured teddy bears picnic with our Roly Junior Pastels range – especially when the weather doesn’t always co-operate with our party plans. You can easily re-create the woods for your teddy bears picnic indoors with these simple and clever ideas.
First, decorate the area with a selection of artificial moss and greenery to create a feeling of the outdoors. An elegant and clever idea for a decorative centrepiece is to sit the teddy bears – mixing and matching all the great pastel colours – around the cupcake or cake stand and write ‘teddy bears’ on bottles to keep the theme going (we even included gummy bears!).
