Christopher Robin may have been one of the most heart felt movies released this year, and one of the best parts was seeing so many familiar favorite characters brought to life. To say it was one of our favorite movies this year may be an understatement, and you can actually read our full review if you haven’t seen the film yet.
Since the movie revolves around the innocence of childhood, and of course that silly old bear Pooh our friends at Disney asked if I would work with them to set up a special event that would not only bring out the kid in all of us but help bring awareness to bees since they make Pooh’s favorite food every – Honey! About four years ago, we started our journey into Urban Beekeeping and it is part of our every day life. While bee keeping may seem scary to some people, the actual process of working with bees is easy and quite rewarding. I was able to give a talk about our bees, and help teach kids and adults alike more about bee keeping and how the honey gets on their table.

Our event was held at Tonia’s Victorian Rose Tea Room in Rochester, Michigan where we gathered with local bloggers, friends and their kids to have an actual tea party just like our favorite characters do in the movie. With many of us (not just the children) experiencing our first tea party together. With character shaped cookies, cucumber sandwiches, tea, lemon tarts and more we were treated to an enchanting afternoon of tea. With bloggers Disney bounding and small details like honey pots, Winnie the Pooh books, character plushes and even miniature characters on our treat trays.
CHRISTOPHER ROBIN is available everywhere on Blu-Ray, DVD and Digital HD! Grab your copy and get ready to have a tea party with your favorite friends!

About Christopher Robin:
On Nov. 6, Disney’s “Christopher Robin,” the wondrous, live-action film in which Winnie the Pooh and friends venture into mid-century London to help grown-up Christopher Robin (Ewan McGregor), arrives instantly on Digital and Movies Anywhere and on Blu-ray™ and DVD with captivating, behind-the-scenes extras. The fun-filled tale features A.A. Milne’s timeless characters from the Hundred Acre Wood — Pooh, Tigger, Piglet, Eeyore, Kanga, Roo, Rabbit and Owl — making their first appearance as three-dimensional characters who remind Christopher Robin, and viewers of all ages, to appreciate the simple pleasures in life.
This entirely new take on the Winnie the Pooh stories will transport parents back to the imaginative, carefree days of childhood and allow them to share their love of Pooh and friends with their own children. “When you are able to make people laugh and cry in the same movie and you are able to tell the story with integrity and ground it in reality and have the magic realism on top of it, it lifts your spirits and connects you with the people you love,” says director Marc Forster. “We could all use a little bit of Pooh’s heart and wisdom right now.”
Bonus features provide a heartfelt look at the making of “Christopher Robin,” showcasing the magical artistry that brings the classic characters to life, the human actors’ techniques for interacting with stuffed animals, and the filmmakers’ passion for their project.
