{Super Adorable} Easter “Bunny Hop” Party

{Super Adorable} Easter Bunny Hop Party

Bri and Amy of The Saavy Moms Guide hosted a ridiculously CUTE Easter themed “play party” this year. Modern, creative, budget-friendly, FUN – this party has it all… including bunny tails for everyone!

Even if you don’t have little ones of your own, there’s plenty of fabulous DIY inspiration in this carrot-and-bunny themed celebration to appeal to “kids” of all ages… from the grassy table runner and adorable “picket fence” displays to the “carrot patch” treats made form creme wafer’s, carrot lollipops, and brownie crumbs (leftover from the “brownie bunnies” of course… so resourceful!).

PARTY DETAILS as told by Bri and Amy

As with all of our play parties we kept this Bunny Hop Play party to a Savvy minimum at around $85. Most of the decor was purchased at our local Dollar Tree and many of the serving pieces we already owned.  We are loving the silhouette trend right now, so we went with chocolate bunny silhouettes accented with green and white gingham and orange. We used artificial grass as the runner to give the table a carrot patch feel. We hung a silhouette bunny and orange pennant banner from twine to dress the green and white gingham backdrop. {Click here to download a template for the bunny silhouette.}

What goes better with Easter bunnies than carrots? So we set the table with bunny and carrot desserts in mind…

We bought vanilla cupcakes from the grocery store topped with white frosting. We then created cotton tail” toppers using lollipop sticks and cotton balls and placed in green and white gingham cupcake liners from Michaels. The Sugarbelle’s carrot sugar cookies were placed on white square plates from Wal-Mart.

The brownie bunnies were cut using bunny shaped cookie cutters and placed on wooden dowels. We then created a picket fence display made from garden fencing, cut and zip tied to the size we needed. To create a natural earthy feel, we filled the fencing with craft shred purchased from Dollar Tree.

The bunny biscuits were an easy recipe inspired by Woman’s Day. The ingredients were minimal: pre-made biscuits, honey, coconut, marshmallow and chocolate chips. These were also placed on a white rectangular plate from Wal-mart. The carrot patches were another inspiration from Family Fun. The ingredients were also minimal, using orange creme wafer’s, left over brownie bunny crumbs and carrot lollipops from The Dollar Tree.

The Carrot Kones from Posh Party Pretties were filled with popcorn and set inside a picket fence utensil holder filled with more craft shred. The bunny cake made by Kolby Kakes was dressed with bunny ears and “Hop” banner from The Purple Pug.

We always try to incorporate some sort of healthy snack to our play parties, so we cut up carrot and celery sticks and placed them in plastic footed cups (also from Dollar Tree) filled with Ranch Dip and embellished with twine for a Savvy garnish.

The “Hoppy Easter” banner from Eye Candy Event Details swagged the front of the table, and all of the food labels were created by Love the Day.

We set a separate table for the props for our “Bunny Hop. We used a white nightstand as our table. We filled the stand with coordinating orange and green party hats and blowers from Oh Goodie Designs. The “Prop Shop” also included bunny ears and mouths on sticks made by Frog Prince Paperie. Each play party friend was also given their own bunny tail made from cotton balls glued to twine and tied around their waste.

After the Bunny Hop we read The Tale of Benjamin Bunny by Beatrix Potter to the kids while they enjoyed their treats. Our play party guests left with a cello bag that was filled with goldfish and tied with green & white gingham ribbon and a “Thanks for Hopping By” tag by Love the Day.”

Hi, I’m from Australia and having a hard time finding those cake stands where you can thread ribbon through, do they have special name at all? Sorry if this is a silly question! Such a cute party by the way :)

So cute. Adopting many of these ideas for my daughter’s Easter Egg Hunt party next week. Where did you find the artificial grass? Home Depot and Lowe’s only seem to have it available in large quantities.
