My daughter Ariella is the sweetest little thing. When the time was coming to plan her 4th birthday party theme, I suggested at least a half dozen ideas to her for themes and she promptly dismissed all of them and exclaimed "I want a bunny party!" She also specifically requested to have live bunnies at her party :)
Ariella chose the theme for her "Bunny Party" and I couldn't think of a better idea for her once she suggested it! Ariella has slept with a little pink bunny lovey since she was a baby, so I used that as the starting point of inspiration for her party. Ariella's favorite color is orange, so I thought I could incorporate her favorite color into the party using carrots - a perfect match for bunnies!
My decorating style for this party was rustic in look. I didn't just want to use those "cutesy" bunnies you see at Easter. I wanted a more sophisticated look for the party.
I absolutely loved the table decor I did using vegetables. I was looking to do something other than flowers, and I thought vegetables would be a perfect fit! Plus, it ended up being a lot less expensive to decorate with vegetables rather than flowers, just FYI! (And you can eat them afterward!)
I also loved incorporating the vegetables into the buffet table - The tiny carrots in the hummus flower pots were a hit!
I wish I had planned Ariella's party much further in advance - she has an early January birthday, and Easter decor wasn't anywhere to be had during November and December, so I had to search long and hard for bunny items. If she had had a spring birthday, finding decor would have been a whole lot easier!
