Bunny Birthday Bash-food

The birthday girl had some strong opinions on the food.  She wanted lots of carrots.  I had baby carrots with ranch dressing.  In the dressing I put a few carrots with the stem and all.  The girls loved these the most.

I also made a carrot cake, my daughters favorite.  Unfortunately, it was not any of the other girls favorite.  To tie it in with the theme I made chocolate ears, eyes and a nose.

To please the other girls I made chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes and used chocolate to make the face and ears.  For the tail I used white cotton candy.

To make these cupcakes make your favorite chocolate chip cookie dough, but leave out the eggs.  I used mini chocolate chips instead of the big ones.  Scoop out the dough and freeze overnight.  I used a box mix for the cupcakes. I put a scoop of the mix in the cupcake liners then added the frozen cookie dough.  Then I topped it off with another scoop of cupcake mix.  Bake as directed on the box.  These cupcakes were a big hit.

Bunny Birthday Bash-decorations

I believe that decorations set the mood for the party.  With that said I like to go a little overboard with decorations, to make my house look party ready.

For this party I put my wishblade to work.  It was cutting tons of cute bunnies for me.  I used some bunnies as hanging decorations or garland.

I also used what was supposed to be a card to make a birthday banner.

I rolled strips of tissue paper around my fingers to make the roses for the #11, flower arrangement and the ball o flowers.

I also made tissue paper flowers to add punches of color.

I let the kids decorate some plastic eggs with stickers and used them around the house.

The best part of this party is that I am able to enjoy the decorations for a few weeks until Easter.  Then we will get ready for our 1st Communion.

Bunny Birthday Bash- table

I think I spent most of my crafting time on making a beautiful table for the party.  The best part is we can enjoy it again on Easter.  I searched the internet and fell in love with these grass placemats.

 

I was going to make my own with fake grass from the hardware store, when I found plain ones at Hobby Lobby.  I added my own paper flowers, bunnies and eggs to make a unique table runner.

Even the cat thought it was real.  My daughter picked out cute gingham plates and I found some leftover bunny napkins and coasters from a previous Easter party.  I folded white napkins in a bunny shape and set it on the plate. Finally I wrapped green silverware in an orange napkin to look like a carrot.

Bunny Birthday Bash- games

Since this party is around Easter and my daughter really wanted to have an egg hunt, that gave me a lot of ideas for games.  The egg hunt will be our main game, but with a little twist.  I painted all the eggs with glow in the dark paint that I got at the craft store.  The key is the eggs need lots of light to activate their “glow in the dark.  So I set the eggs in a well lit room to absorb some lightSmile   To make the eggs glow even more we put up a black light in the basement.  The girls loved it so much they kept the black light on all night.

Another game is the popular egg on a spoon relay.  The kids have to put a spoon in their mouth with an egg on it and race to pass it to a teammate on the other side of the room.  This game ended in a tie, but the girls did not seem to mind.

Finally, we played the egg relay where you hold the egg under your chin and pass it to the person behind you.  This brought lots and lots of giggles!
