A Winnie the Pooh tea party | Disney Store’s 30th birthday

Can you think of a world without the Disney Store in the closest city? Thankfully, being 22, I can’t remember a time before this shop brought a bit of magic to the high street. In fact, pixie dust has been sprinkled in the UK for 30 years now, and I am so thankful that the shops remain as popular as ever. I’m lucky enough to work quite near to the flagship UK store on Oxford Street, London. That means that whenever I’ve had a rough morning at work, I can power walk over to the Disney Store, check out all the new merchandise, chat to some Cast Members, and leave with a smile on my face, ready to handle the rest of the day. That’s pretty special.

A few weeks ago, the Disney Store contacted me to help celebrate their big birthday this year. Bloggers are coming together to recreate scenes from their favourite Disney movies, using props that are on sale now with Disney.

If you know me, you’ll know that I have a slight obsession with Winnie the Pooh, so that had to be top of my list. Then I got a special delivery on Saturday afternoon with Disney branding all over it. The package felt soft and squishy, so I had some idea of what it was going to be. Opening it, I found the cutest Eeyore soft toy ever. He’s super soft and perfectly huggable.

It gave me the perfect idea for my photo, too.

Right at the start of any Winnie the Pooh episode, before it gets into the animation with all the beloved characters, the toys sit around Christopher Robin’s bedroom. They’re usually part way through a story, like sailing on a ship, taking a nap, or even having a tea party. So I decided to round up my collection of Winnie the Pooh items and make a static tea party of my own, as if the characters were going to come to life at a second’s notice.

I gathered soft toys, Tsum Tsums, and even mugs. After all, it can’t be a tea party without a few mugs of tea. Then, of course, there needed to be some chocolate cake involved. If that wasn’t enough, I even lit a candle on the cake. It is the Disney Store’s 30th birthday, after all!

Here is the finished result. What do you think?

Thank you to the Disney Store for sending Eeyore over to me. Congratulations on your 30th birthday, and I sincerely hope that there will be many more to come, full of exciting new merchandise.

    What a lovely idea and brilliant photo. It really took me back to my childhood. I would love to visit Disney and I have never been before. After seeing your vlogs, it made me want to try and look into going! I just have no idea where to start with the whole trip planning.
