My middle daughter has a total love of all small animals, so it was only time before we had to have a Bunny birthday party. We had a lot of fun creating the dessert table for this party. We used both carrot and bunny cake pops and carrot and bunny cookies. To this we added cup cakes and layered jelly. Our Birthday Cake is a delightful cottage Vegetable Garden, with naughty bunnies trying to eat the vegetables. We created a printable range featuring bunnies in blues, mauves and red, this range will soon be available in our shop.
To style the bunny dessert table we used a collection of country cottages and bunnies from the Sylvanian Family range, these really complemented the theme of the party.
For a different type of favour bag, we created paper carrots, that we filled with treats, these carrots were very effective and we will soon post a tutorial. For activities we had real bunny feeding, a bunny scavenger hunt and a bunny photo booth.
A great day overall and a great bunny birthday theme, enjoy.
The ideas for the bunny cake pops came from Bakerella and while they did take some time they were a big hit with the kids. For the carrots I made cone shaped cake pops and created sugar paste leaves, using a silicon leaf press. The carrots are displayed in a styrofoam circle (available from cake supply shops) with a cute picket fence to keep the bunnies away .
Dessert tables are the place to let your creativity run wild. Our Bunny Dessert Table held lot's of bunny edible treats and the rabbit range of Sylvanian families. Our Printable collection includes the cake toppers and Jelly toppers.
The Sylvanian Families range provided a great feature on the dessert table.
The bunny cake pops looked really effective, but do take time to create. They can be made the day before but leave a good couple of hours aside for creating the detail in the faces.
You have to have cup cakes at a party, we've created these cute bunny cake toppers, just perfect for bunny parties.
We used a three types of cookie cutters for our cookie bunnies, and found a delightful carrot cookie cutter to create some carrots.
Vegetable Garden Birthday Cake
I had a lot of fun making this cake, I'm not a cake decorator so I have to select designs that are fairy straight forward and do not require too many techniques and the Vegetable garden was just perfect..
While this party did have a lot of sweets, we included a simple vegetable and dip platter which we called bunny food.
These cute Carrot Party Favours turned out really well, they were simple to make but look really effective and like a real carrot. We filled the carrots with goodies and included a Thank You card from our Bunny printable range.
I actually found our carrot crate in the cardboard recycle box crate at Cosco. It looked great and did not require any work.
We will shortly post a tutorial on how we made these cute carrot party favours
Games and Activities
At this party we had real bunny feeding, a great bunny scavenger hun and a photo booth.
The bunny feeding station was a hit with the children, I used a commercial bunny food and small cup cakes wrappers.
I'm sure the bunnies had as much fun as the children, they were the centre of attention for a few hours and had lots of pat's and hugs.
The Scavenger Hunt game includes a sign, envelopes for the cards and nine treasure hunt cards to be placed around your house and garden.
Using Blu tac, hide the cards around your garden. Remember to make it a challenge, but not too hard. I tend to hide all the same type of card in the same area, this way the children can swap clues to find the cards.
I created a simple photo booth where the children could select a real bunny or a plush bunny and a set of bunny ears. Out of interest they all choose the really bunnies.
