Rosa wanted a bunny birthday party for her 6th birthday (which is tomorrow). So I’ve been putting things together here and there – it’s turning out kinda cute and kinda wacky.
These were the invites. The scalloped paper and bunny rubber stamp came from Paper Source. We sprinkled purple glitter on the bunny; it looked really cute but I’m certain it got glitter all over the unfortunate/unsuspecting person who opened the envelope.
Our house does not have a great layout for entertaining many people. It’s a little too narrow. So we tend to keep the parties small, and I decorate the dining room and try to concentrate our activities there – crafts, snacks, cake, etc.
I spent last weekend cutting out these bunny “scenes” from construction paper to decorate the walls:
Pom poms (from Orange Kisses) hanging above a carrot patch (and how do you like the candy striped radiator pipe?). On the wall next to the carrot patch is Mr. Bunny and his cottage which Rosa helped me make.
On a different wall, a meadow with sun and clouds, grass and flowers and…
a little bunny hiding in the grass.
And here’s a little hint about the party favors:
I’m going to show you what’s inside these surprise balls on Monday, and I will also share some party pictures.
I still have quite a bit to do for the party (grocery shopping, cleaning, finishing the decorations, baking cupcakes) and then on Sunday I have to bake six dozen cookies in the morning for the cookie swap I’m hosting in the afternoon!
It’s going to be a busy weekend…
