Take a look at these adorable personalized Teddy Bear invitations. The sample wording says it’s a baby shower, but you can change it to say “Teddy Bear Tea Party” plus all the birthday party details:
- The main decoration at a tea party is the table itself, so use a pretty tablecloth and add large doilies as placemats. Use real teacups and saucers, and include a sugar bowl filled with sugar cubes. Use an extra teapot as the centerpiece and fill it with 4-5 beanie bears standing up so that they are peeking over the rim.
- Prepare a smaller table for the guests’ teddy bears and set out a child’s play tea set. Have a party hat for each bear to wear when they arrive.
- Gather all the extra teddy bears you own as decorations. Sit them in groups on extra chairs and tables and attach a helium balloon to some of their paws.
- Paint terra cotta pots in pastel colors and fill with dry beans. Then arrange lots of big, round lollipops and pinwheels like a bouquet. Use these as table decorations.
- Tie large artificial flowers to the back of each guest’s chair. Make the big flowers on FamilyFun.com. First wrap a length of pink tulle around the back of the chair and tie a big bow. Then slip the flower stem under the bow.
- Hang colored paper lanterns back and forth above the table.
- And don’t forget to use some balloons and streamers outside to decorate your mail box or doorway.
- Have each child introduce their teddy bear by telling its name and when they got the bear.
- Pin the Heart on the Bear – Draw a simple brown bear on poster board and cut out lots of red paper heart shapes. Using double-sided tape on the hearts, let the children try to place the heart on the bear while blindfolded.
- Pass the Bear – The children sit in a circle and pass a stuffed bear while music plays. When the music stops, whoever is holding the bear gets a sticker. Continue to play and stop the music until each child has gotten a sticker.
- Bear Race – Played like musical chairs, but the children each hold their bear and race to put their bear on a chair when the music stops.
- Bear Hunt – While the children are busy eating or playing another game, have a helper hide their teddy bears. Then send the kids on a bear hunt to find their own bear. If they find someone else’s bear, they should leave it alone for its owner to find.
- Teddy Bear Toss – The children hold tightly onto the edges of a twin sheet and a helper places all their teddy bears in the middle of the sheet “parachute”. Then have the kids start shaking the sheet and the bears will be tossed around, some of them falling off. The bear that stays on the longest is the winner.
- Plan some free time for the children to play together with their teddy bears.
- As children arrive, let them color this free printable Teddy Bear coloring page while you wait for all the guests.
- Serve the food on pretty platters or use a tiered plate stand. Cut sandwiches with a bear cookie cutter, and remember to trim off the crusts first. Jam sandwiches are a hit, as well as very thinly sliced cucumber, and the kid-favorite PB&J.
- Make your own Teddy Snack mix with teddy grahams, mini pretzel twists, mini marshmallows & honeycomb cereal. Serve to each guest in a paper cupcake liner.
- Grapes and strawberries.
- Pizza Biscuit Bears
- Bear Claw Cookies
- Bear Cookie Pops
- Gingerbread Teddy Bear Cookies
- Sweet Teddy Bear Biscuits
- Include sugar cubes on the table for the guests to sweeten their tea. Have a second teapot filled with lemonade or apple juice for anyone who doesn’t want to try the real tea.
- Make your own Teddy Bear Cake with these easy directions from Taste of Home magazine.
