It's "Some Bunny's" Birthday Party

Hop to it! This springtime celebration calls for jadeite tableware, fresh-from-the-garden snacks, and bunny-eared gift bags.

Hop On Over to Celebrate

These handcrafted invitations promise a "hoppy" time. We used a soft color palette of pastel pink, fluffy white, and mint green. And that bunny motif? Here's a clever tip: We used a bunny cookie cutter as the template for the invitations, paper garland, and a batch of tea sandwiches.

Sweets and Treats

An apothecary jar filled to the brim with layers of candy — in pretty pastel colors, of course — doubles as decoration. Meanwhile, bite-sized sweets are just the thing for grownup bunnies and little ones alike. Think cake pops, cookies, and even cheesecakes.

From the Vegetable Patch

Even the most finicky little eaters won't say no to this kind of "rabbit food." For easy snacking, we offer a crudite platter of fresh garden veggies like tomatoes, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, and radishes. And don't forget to pair them with a tasty herb dip. Alternatively, serve tea sandwiches. To make them, we used large cookie cutters to cut the bread into adorable shapes. (We, of course, chose bunnies.)

From the Flower Garden

A bundle of spring flowers — spilling from the brim of a jadeite pitcher — is a sunny decoration all on its own. We used seasonal varieties like yellow tulips and daffodils.

Follow the Bunny Trail

One little bunny, so many uses. Here, we used the same cookie cutter shape to trace, cut, and assemble a garland of them with added fluffy pom-poms as cottontails.

The Cake

Little rabbits love carrots in almost any form, right? So they won't be able to resist nibbling on a slice of carrot cake.

Thank You

At the end of the fun, kids will hippity-hop for joy when they see these floppy-eared goody bags filled with surprises. And the best part? They're a cinch to make in bulk.
