Teddy bear picnic
The ‘terrible twos’ can be a tricky age bracket to please but thankfully, the teddy bear picnic is everyone’s cup of tea. Send out twee invites and make sure the little guests bring their favourite teddy bear to the party, which you can set up in your garden with blankets or mats, cushions or colourful plastic chairs and tables. Adhering to the theme, teddy bears must feature prominently in cupcakes and cookies (get them at Wondermilk, ilovewondermilk.com). This party theme can also easily be done in your living room or in a public park.
Cute serving ware is a must and IKEA do a range of petite ceramic tea sets perfect for little chubby hands; or check out H&M’s new range of whimsical party boxes (p48) with their themed buntings and picnic ware – perfect for that garden fête. Classic games like musical chairs and pass the parcel will keep the children entertained. Party favours Gummi bears, miniature teddy bear plush toys
