Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower Theme Overview
Everyone loves the Winnie the Pooh baby shower theme, because not only is it a classic but it’ll also bring a sense of nostalgia to all your guests.
The Hundred Acre Wood is a magical place where Pooh Bear and his friends live with Christopher Robin. For this baby shower, we’ll convert your space to this magical forest.
The color scheme for a Winnie the Pooh event will bring in all the classic Winnie the Pooh colors from muted golden yellows to soft hues of blue. However, you can also swap the blue for a classic pastel pink for a more feminine look.
Also, how adorable is the above floating balloon garland? To copy the look hang fishing wire and use strong tape to hold the balloons. Then simply hang these character cutouts from each balloon (you’ll have to print them out on card stock).
Pooh Baby Shower Invitations
Once the date and venue have been chosen, it is time to send out Winnie the Pooh invitations.
The invitations should include all of the important details, such as the date, time, and location of the baby shower. It is also important to include information about the theme of the baby shower, which in this case is Winnie the Pooh.
The invitations can be gender-neutral, featuring Winnie the Pooh characters and colors that are not specific to a particular gender.
These printable Winnie the Pooh invitations are adorable and you can easily customize them yourself and have them printed.
If you’re looking for Pooh Bear invitations that are already printed, this set is my favorite. It also comes with matching thank you cards, diaper raffle cards, and books for baby cards.
Pooh Baby Shower Decorations
When it comes to decorating a Winnie the Pooh themed baby shower, creating a whimsical and inviting atmosphere is key.
One way to achieve this is by transforming the party space into the Hundred Acre Wood setting that Winnie the Pooh and his friends call home.
You can do this by using Winnie the Pooh signs and quotes, custom backdrops, cutouts of the characters, and whimsical centerpieces that’ll bring your guests back to this magical forest where Pooh and his friends spent their days.
As guests arrive to the venue, decorate a space to invite them into the baby shower and introduce the Winnie the Pooh theme right away.
You can use a simple welcome sign for your guests to read or setup balloon garland, poster character cutouts and a sign that looks like it was created in the woods by Pooh and his friends.

You can even setup a huge backdrop as your guests enter, which will also double as the perfect place for a photo opp! You can find a similar huge storybook backdrop here.
Banners + Backdrops
Speaking of banners and backdrops, you’ll want to use these in a few areas throughout your venue to really create a focal point to the event.
Usually these are placed behind the dessert table and behind the place where the guest of honor will be opening her presents.
I love this hundred acre wood backdrop hung behind the above dessert table. It’s so perfect for a Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower.
Above you can see another way these huge storybook backdrops are used in a baby shower. I love how it uses winnie the pooh quotes. You can find this exact backdrop here.
Winnie the Pooh Centerpieces + Table Decor
Your centerpieces and table decor will really bring the entire event together. There are so many fun things you can do with this theme. Here are some of my favorite ideas:
Use Winnie the Pooh quote cards on the tables with adorable quotes from the beloved characters. You can frame these quotes or use cute little photo holders.
Here we see the quote printables used as a centerpiece again, but this time it’s framed in a rustic picture frame. You can find inexpensive frames like this right at the dollar store. I love how it’s placed on a wood sliced covered in faux moss. The box of flowers adds an extra touch and really helps bring you into nature.
Add color into your table with your napkins, table runners, and more. Above you see these dusty blue gauze runners are used to really bring in a pop of color. Use them on the guest tables or you can use them on the dessert, food, or favor tables!
Winnie the Pooh Dessert Table
A dessert table is a great way to showcase all the sweet treats and desserts that are available at the baby shower. To make the table extra special, consider adding a Winnie the Pooh cake topper to the main cake. This can be a simple figurine of Winnie the Pooh or a more elaborate cake topper featuring the whole gang from the Hundred Acre Wood.
When setting up the dessert table, be sure to include a variety of treats such as cupcakes, cookies, and cake pops. Display these treats on tiered dessert stands or on platters with decorative liners. Don’t forget to include some Winnie the Pooh-themed signage or prints to tie the whole look together.
Overall, incorporating honey-inspired treats and setting up a dessert table are great ways to add some Hundred Acre Wood charm to the catering at a Winnie the Pooh-themed baby shower.
Gift Table Decor
When setting up the gift table, you can decorate it with Pooh-themed decorations such as yellow and red balloons, honey pots, and Winnie the Pooh stuffed animals. You can also add quotes from A.A. Milne’s books to the table to make it more meaningful.
Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower Food
When it comes to a Winnie the Pooh-themed baby shower, the catering can be just as important as the decor.
Using custom Winnie the Pooh labels for your food and drinks is a cute way to bring the theme to your food table.
You can try to serve feeds that are on theme for a Pooh baby shower like tigger tails (orange dipped pretzel sticks), “hunny” ham sandwiches, or simple honey lemonade.
Baby Shower Games Games
A baby shower is incomplete without fun games that keep the guests engaged and entertained. Pooh-themed games are a great way to add a touch of nostalgia and fun to the event. Here are some popular Pooh-themed games that are sure to be a hit at any baby shower.
Baby Bingo is a classic game that is always a hit at baby showers. Instead of numbers, the cards have baby-related items such as pacifiers, bottles, and diapers. As the items are called out, the guests mark them off on their cards. The first person to get a full row wins a prize.
Another popular game is the Diaper Raffle. Guests who bring a pack of diapers are entered into a raffle to win a prize. Not only is this a great way to stock up on diapers for the new parents, but it also adds an element of excitement to the event.
The Pacifier Hunt is a fun game that involves hiding pacifiers around the venue. Guests have to find as many pacifiers as they can within a set time limit. The guest who finds the most pacifiers wins a prize.
The Predictions Game is another popular game that involves guessing the baby’s gender, weight, and due date. Guests write down their predictions on a piece of paper, and the person with the closest guess wins a prize.
How Big is Her Belly
Other popular games include “How Big is Her Belly,” where guests have to guess the size of the mother-to-be’s belly.
How Many in the Jar?
These games are a great way to add some fun and excitement to the baby shower while keeping the guests entertained. Guests will simply guess how many honeycombs are in the jar (right on trend for honey-loving Pooh). The person with the closest guess will win the prize!
Rather than your traditional baby shower guestbook, this Winnie the Pooh guest book is a fun idea and would make for the perfect keepsake to be used in the nursery.
Winnie the Pooh Baby Shower Favors
A baby shower is a joyous occasion and thanking your guests for their presence with a thoughtful gift is a great way to show your appreciation. Here are some Winnie the Pooh-inspired gift ideas that your guests will love.
Small jars of honey paired with wooden honey dippers would make for the perfect party favors for a Winnie the Pooh baby shower! You can find bulk jars and fill them with bulk honey or even local raw honey from a local beekeeper to make it extra special.
Overall, a Winnie the Pooh-themed baby shower is a great way to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. It’s nostalgic and whimsical and the perfect way to celebrate the new chapter for the parents to be and their new bundle of joy.
