Once upon a time there were four little Rabbits, and their names were – Flopsy, Mopsy, Cotton-tail, and Peter.
Peter Rabbit party – Cookie Queen Kitsch’n
If there’s any other rabbit that can outdo the Easter bunny in popularity, it’s Peter Rabbit. The cheeky bunny in a blue peacoat and his friends are stealing the lime light these Easter school holidays with a film that I personally cannot wait to see, recreating the children’s classic story by Beatrix Potter.
The Beatrix Potter characters come alive in an action animated comedy directed and co-written by Will Gluck, based on the mischievous Peter Rabbit (voiced by James Corden) and his feud with Mr. McGregor (Domhnall Gleeson). This much loved bunny party theme will last well after the Easter bunny goes back to his burrow for another year.
A Peter Rabbit theme is perfect for baby showers, first birthdays and christenings as you can take as little or as much of the classic story as inspiration as you like. Think shades of his pretty blue peacoat, natural earthy tones and textures, vegetables and of course Peter himself! Here’s our wrap up of finds from our LLC Vendors to help inspire and shop from for your upcoming Peter Rabbit party.
Peter Rabbit party invitations
There are so many ways of presenting this party theme, with as little or as much reference to the characters as you like. But Peter is just so cute, he’d have to make an appearance somewhere, surely!

Peter Rabbit party decorations
Peter’s playground is Mr McGregor’s vegetable patch, so take inspiration from the colours and textures of the garden and have a little fun with your decorations by incorporating elements of the story (and garden!) into your theme.

Peter Rabbit party hire items
It’s the little details that help bring a theme together, so hiring items you don’t readily have on hand (or want to keep!) is a great way to achieve the look you’re after. From extra tables and chairs, play equipment and cake platters, we’ve found some great items that will do the trick.
White mesh backdrop – The Treasure Room Sydney
Tree Stumps, Saffy and May, Queensland
Gathered round hessian tablecloth for hire, Saffy and May, Queensland
Furniture hire, Saffy and May, Queensland
Vintage high chair hire, Tiny Tables and Chairs, Melbourne
Grass table runner, Tiny Tots Toy Hire, Sydney

Peter Rabbit party tableware
Whilst it’s easy enough to find branded Peter Rabbit tableware and accessories, it’s always nice to pair them up with other coordinating items in keeping with your theme. Take colour cues from the veggie patch, Peter’s peacoat and add a touch of gold for something pretty.
Blue striped cake plates, Emiko Blue
Mint and gold plates, Little Boo-Teek
Blue Gingham plates, Ruby Rabbit Partyware
Blue chevron plates, Fantasy Kids Parties

Peter Rabbit party cakes and desserts
As much as Peter enjoys Mr McGregors veggies, a party isn’t a party without a few sweet treats! Pretty them up in coordinated cupcake wrappers, add a few bunnies on biscuits and we bet Peter would swap the carrots in a heart beat.

Peter Rabbit party favours
It is said that the effect of eating too much lettuce is ‘soporific’.
Best not send your guests home with lettuce then! Instead, opt for handmade gifts and packaged sweets in pretty treat bags or go with a more rustic look for a garden feel:

Duck egg blue party bags, Little Boo-Teek

With Easter around the corner I thought I would put together a few selections of some Easter items for those of you wanting to put together something special for Easter.
Easter is a great time to do some fun crafts with your children and make some special decorations and items for around the house – or perhaps a time you enjoy making ‘Easter’ related craft items yourself.
So these ideas are just something extra to go on top of that, or are for those craft-challenged mums (like me!) or perhaps time-poor mum’s who want something simple and easy they can buy to add something special to their Easter celebration.
Of course there are lots of lovely things at the shops as well and I particularly love the collection in ‘Bed, bath n Table’! However I know the convenience which online shopping can bring in planning your celebrations, so I hope this collections helps!
