Teddy Bear’s Picnic

This month on Moomookachoo’s magical calendar I choose ‘Teddy Bear Day’ to celebrate by having a simple teddy bears picnic afternoon tea

September 2015 Magical Days Calendar FeatureI love the opportunity to theme something special for the kids.

And inviting friends over and throwing a wee picnic in the backyard is a fun way to break up the school week

Teddy Bears Picnic 2

I gathered a few items from our hire collection (picnic mat, white wash crates, those cute enamel bowls, pink flower grass mats), the kids teddy bears, jasmine from the garden and Sophia’s Noah & Bowie bear blanket


Whitewash crates are always fab as a prop


On the menu was banana milk which I thought would look pretty with the lavender, Tiny teddy cookies, gummy bears, cute lotte koala cookies, Delmaine apples tarts for the textural picnic look and cassava chips
