Our Hunny Bee turned Three!!

We had a lovely Pooh Bear party for our sweet little three year old Kate last weekend! The weather was perfect, and she is still talking about it, so I would say it was a success. Yall know how much I love planning parties for my kids, and this one was so much fun! I think it was because she “got” it. Every day beforehand, she would say, “Let’s talk about…my pooh party!” We would go through all the details and she would add some too! I went to Goodwill and bought several Pooh books. I printed the invitation info on vellum and attached to a page of the book.

We had our party at my parents’ house behind the barn. It was the perfect place for the Hundred Acre Wood!IMG_0891IMG_0892IMG_0868
My mom made a delicious almond pound beehive cake! That is dirt cake with carrot cookies in front!IMG_0869 IMG_0961

We had hunny and peanut butter & hunny and nutella sanwiches.IMG_0871
We also had owl cupcakes and veggies from Rabbit’s garden.IMG_0872 IMG_0880
The hunny pot cake pops were not as hard as I thought they would be…Luke might have a different opinion! He and his sister hand painted each one to say Hunny! That’s a devoted dad and aunt right there!IMG_0873 IMG_0874 IMG_0875 IMG_0876    IMG_0883 IMG_0884 This was the favor table. I had “carrot” bags with orange puffs, candy from the pinata, and “hunny” gak type stuff. We made it that morning, and Kate has loved playing with it!IMG_0890 
I became slightly obsessed with finding hunny bear bottles to drink out of. An organic farm in Frayser let me purchase these from them! Looking forward to seeing them with their produce at the Agricenter this summer! IMG_0879
Now that Kate is a Big Girl, I tried to think of some fun games to play! We had everyone meet up at the house…(so sweet to see her excited about her school friends!)IMG_0899 IMG_0903
And we played a little game of dropping the hunny bees into the hunny pot.IMG_0904 IMG_0905 
Preston thought they were hot, so he blew on them!IMG_0907IMG_0906
Then, I had my awesome, kindergarten teacher/sister, aka Aunt Meme, read the kids a story about Eeyore losing his tail. (Party in the Wood)IMG_0910 IMG_0915
Then the kids went on a scavenger hunt to find the things in the book that the friends suggested he use for a new tail! Pinecones…IMG_0917 IMG_0924
A yoyo…IMG_0925 IMG_0926 IMG_0932
A red scarf…IMG_0936 IMG_0938
A balloon…IMG_0944
and an umbrella.IMG_0946 IMG_0947
By this time we were right by the barn, and guess who was there…with his tail!?IMG_0948 IMG_0949
Eeyore!!IMG_0950 IMG_0955
After that, we broke the beehive pinata that I made (this started the whole Pooh bear/bee idea!)…

Then we sang Happy Birthday,

Instead of presents for Kate, we collected books for a Title One kindergarten class. We so much appreciate everyone helping us share our love of reading with others!
