Are you struggling to plan your child’s birthday party during the Pandemic?
Here is a fun birthday theme for boys and girls and perfect for a micro party. I titled it “Bear-ly Out Of The Woods” referring to the stage in which we are with the Pandemic (at this time).
Small parties are so much fun to plan- especially when you stick to a few kids your child has been seeing these past few months! You can go over-the-top when there are only 6 kids right? Just make sure to adhere to safe practices-activities 6′ apart, social distancing, wipes and sanitizer around for proper hand washing and mask up!
So many items for this party were repurposed and I was so excited to show how you can plan a party with items you may have lying around your home. As we know, it is not that easy to get items last minute. UPS, USPS and Fed Ex are so busy this time of year (especially with the holidays around the corner)! I gathered together some of my items and came up with a Bear Theme (after all I have two bear-like dogs that inspired this theme as well). Make sure the items you grab are reflective of your child.
-Love the great outdoors
-Loves to Camp
-Snacks all day
-Wears comfy cozy clothing (like, who doesn’t?) (see the Ikea sheepskin rugs I put on the backs of chairs)
There you have it. Color palette? green, yellow, and plaid black + white!
Individual food items is important so I created a personalized Trail Mix Bar. Gummy Bears, Yogurt Covered Raisins, Goldfish, Teddy Grahams and why not make some s’mores with the guests! You can offer a pupu platter and guests can toast s’mores in the middle of the table or make smores in the backyard of course!
Bamboo Plates: These “chic-eco-friendly dinnerware” were extras from my daughters grad party!
How cute are these black bears? They WERE polar bears from an Arctic Theme Holiday Party I planned last year and I decided to just reuse by painting them. Simply put…paint=change.
Way back when before the pandemic, I was decorating these fun wicker baskets for the beach. Check out The Container Store Bear Basket they are absolutely adorable!!! This one I just painted myself with some acrylic paint I had laying around. Easy Peasy!
