Brown Bear, Brown Bear Birthday Party

Brown bear, brown bear, what do you see?

I see a birthday boy looking at me!

We had so much fun turning one of our favorite books into a special party to celebrate this little guy’s first birthday!

White table coverings allowed us to present the decorations in a manner that coincides with the book. We were able to order some Brown Bear, Brown Bear party supplies from OrientalTrading.com, and we found some three-dimensional puzzles of the animals at Half Price Books, which complimented the decorations.

We found iron-on transfers of the animals from the Brown Bear book on Etsy, which we ironed onto white shirts. The Birthday Boy got Brown Bear, and his siblings selected their favorites of the other animals for their shirts.

The menu was especially fun for this party. We went with a brunch theme, offering a food item was each color and animal represented in the book:

Brown Bear bacon

Yellow Duck eggs

White Dog biscuits

Black Sheep sausage (close enough)

Purple Cat jelly

Red Bird strawberries

Blue Horse yogurt and blueberries

Gold Fish cheese cubes (Goldfish crackers would work, as well.)

Green Frog veggies

Oriental Trading Company is also the place where we were able to order lots of Brown Bear themed items for the party favor bags – Brown bear masks, silly straws, bubbles, slap bracelets, crayons, and more – all in the party theme. There, of course, is also the option of purchasing small toy animals which fit closely with the book, making the task of finding party favors fairly easy for this party.

It turned out to be an adorable First Birthday Party. I really love planning a party around a child’s favorite book!
