Bunny Themed Birthday

Our 8 year old has fallen in love with bunnies.  She ended up with two bunnies as gifts for her birthday including a male Lionhead and female Holland Lop. They are 1 year old and bonded (plus already spayed and neutered which makes bunnies a lot more sweet.) Here is Marshmallow:


And here is Brownie!


For her party we mostly got out Easter decorations, plus added some things from Oriental Trading Co., which turns out has awesome sales on Bunny Decor in September!







Her cake was a very delicious carrot cake recipe we found on The King Arthur website. Everyone was amazed out how good it tasted.


These cute bunny lollipops were from Oriental Trading Co.


We found several free bunny printables the kids colored as guests arrived.


The bunny gift bags contained bunny necklaces for the girls and at the end of the party they got to pick additional items from a "Carrot Patch" that included plastic bunny eggs filled with jelly beans, lollipops and bunny shaped rings.


Because we were facing Hurricane Florence here in NC, the day of the party we were basically short of fresh food.  But we did manage to pull out carrots and grapes and some Annie's bunny shaped snacks from the pantry.



One of the games we played was "Bunny Bunny Fox." Essentially Duck Duck Goose.


Another game we played was called "The Farmer and the Rabbit."  In this game each child had a section of ground that was their bunny patch and they were the bunnies. My husband was the farmer and his vegetables were balloons. The bunnies had to come up and take a balloon without being tagged and put it back in their bunny home. My boys played weasels who could steal the balloons from the bunnies and put them back in the Farmer's garden. The bunny with the most balloons at the end of 5 minutes was the winner.  This game really got the kids excited and having fun.


The party was a great success, given Hurricane Florence's impending doom.  And best of all, there are two cute bunnies in our family now that my daughter is absolutely in love with.
