So I found these adorable Peter Rabbit invites on Etsy that were way too expensive. "Lettuce" leaf wraps and a "carrot" tie around each one. Freaking adorable. But there was no way I was gonna pay that much for the invitations for my 2 year old's birthday. But I thought, you know what? I really want these! So I got a much simpler invite and then made the "lettuce" leaf wraps and paper carrots myself. I made the wraps by painting simple white doilies with green watercolor paints, then I cut out the carrots from card stock and tied them on with baker's twine.
The cute little terra cotta pots I got from Micheal's and they were just the thing to make you feel like you were in Mr. McGregor's garden.
So the bunny lady arrived 20 minutes after the party started and brought in two large Tupperware tubs full of bunnies. It was amazing. She opened the lid and all the kids squealed for joy at the sight of all those sweet bunnies snuggled together. Then we sat out on a blanket of the floor and everyone got to hold and snuggle the bunnies. I don't know if anyone was quite as excited as I was, but everyone loved it. We got the kids to hold still and play with the bunnies for a good 20 mins. The whole scene was just precious.
Since Peanut loves to color, I thought it was only fitting that we include some coloring pages for her friends.
These are handmade Peter Rabbit lollipops that I bought off Etsy. They were like cotton candy flavored or something. I snuck a mommy tax from Princess. It was delicious.
I got the little buttons on Amazon.
I made these little stuffed carrots. Perfect thing for decorating for Easter or for adding to your little one's kitchen set collection!
It turned out to be a pretty successful party! Happy 2nd Birthday my beautiful lil Peanut. I love you SO MUCH!
And look! We even got a picture all together! Which is a big deal because we forgot to on Peanut's 1st birthday.
That's it for our Peter Rabbit Birthday Party. Now if only we can convince Daddy to let us get some pet bunnies....Then life would be complete.
