Create a birthday celebration featuring a baby deer theme from the classic Walt Disney movie "Bambi." Bring elements of the story to life by decorating with nature decor along with Bambi, Flower the skunk, Thumper the rabbit and other characters from the movie. This party works well for a boy or a girl under the age of 8.
Decorations and Supplies
Hang up Bambi posters featuring scenes from the movie on the walls throughout the house. Find balloons shaped like Bambi and friends at the party store. Tie these balloons on chairs at the table and on the corners of the food table. Decorate with other accents such as small plastic pine trees or silk daisies. Find Bambi and Thumper plates, cups, napkins and other supplies at the party store.
Encourage the kids at the party to play games such as pin the tail on the deer or find Bambi's friends. Place a Bambi poster on the wall and cut out several tails from brown and white construction paper. Allow the children to take turns pinning on Bambi's tail. Place each child directly in front of the poster and tie a blind fold over his eyes. See if he can guess where to put Bambi's tail on the poster. The child who finds the right spot for the tail, wins. You can also hide Bambi toys around the house and play a game to see how fast the children can find the toys. Other activities can include playing the movie "Bambi" and making deer crafts.
Make food that fits in with the Bambi theme. Make cookies shaped like small deer and other forest creatures. Guests might also enjoy turkey sandwiches cut in the shapes of flowers, rabbits or deer. Make the sandwiches first and then use cookie cutters to cut each one into shapes. Cookies or food made to look like butterflies, pine trees, rainbows or other nature-themed items also work for a Bambi theme. Place vegetables and other food items on china shaped like flowers, unless you can find serving plates with Bambi printed on them.
Showcase a green three-tier cake with edible white daisies around the borders of each tier. Place a small figurine Bambi on the top of the cake and adorn the other tiers with Thumper and other forest friends. You can also buy or make a sheet cake that has small plastic pine trees on top, adorned with plastic Bambi toys. Bambi lived in the forest, so try to incorporate a forest theme into your cake.
