A teddy bear picnic is a birthday theme that both boys and girls will love! To celebrate International Picnic Day, we're taking a look at some irresistibly cute ideas to inspire a truly magical teddy bears picnic theme.
Start the fun with adorable personalised invitations. A teddy bear design introduces the party theme and gets the children ready for an outdoors adventure. Don't forget to include all the important details, like the time and location. You could also remind the kids to bring their favourite teddy bear along to the picnic.

No picnic is complete without a traditional red and white gingham blanket! The pattern will give any party a classic picnic feel, and it can always be reused for family picnics in the future. Add a wicker basket packed with treats, set up some stuffed bears and child-friendly cutlery, and you're ready to welcome the guests. For larger parties, you can serve food up in individual bags rather than putting them inside the basket. Our party bags and stickers are perfect for this!

Hang some bunting around fences or trees to add some colour - if you're having an indoors party, you can add bunting to the walls. For something different, check out this cute felt teddy bear face bunting! It makes a lovely birthday gift for decorating your child's bedroom after the party.
It's easy to make adorable teddy-themed snacks! To start, buy a bear-shaped cookie cutter to create some delicious sandwiches and biscuits that the kids will love.

Have fun with face-painting after the picnic. Children will love having cute teddy bear faces painted on before the games begin. For an outdoor scavenger hunt with a twist, hide small teddy bear toys for the children to discover.
You could start the party with this game, then enjoy the snacks once all the teddy bear 'guests' have been gathered up. Finish the day with party bags filled with teddy treats, including a small stuffed bear.
