This is the birthday girl on her 7th birthday. She was so excited to have a bunny themed birthday party. At this time of year it isn’t too hard to come up with bunny items to buy to add the perfect touches for a bunny party.
For the food I tried to stick with the bunny theme and serve vegetable based items. We had carrots, cherry tomatoes and celery (ants on a log). For the main course we had vegetable soup and salad.
For our drink we had a special berry lemonade with frozen raspberries that we dropped in the drink to keep it cold. The kids loved this “special” drink. Another option would be to offer carrot juice or vegetable juice, I didn’t think my kids would go for it.
A bunny themed party requires a bunny cake. To make the cake I used a box mix and baked 2 – 9″ cakes. For the head part of the cake I cut some small sections off to form it into more of an oval shape. I used the other cake and cut out two ears from it. I then frosted the cake using white frosting. Then I colored the remaining frosting pink using a couple drops of red food coloring. I then frosted the inside section of the ears using the pink frosting. Next, I added coconut to the cake, but I skipped the pink ear part. I made the eyes out of chocolate and the nose from a jelly bean. The birthday girl was in love with her bunny cake!
To decorate for the party I made tissue paper fans with bunny heads. To learn how to create your own tissue paper bunny fans click here. I also bought a bunny themed table cloth, some solid color balloons and a bunny chair cover from Dollar Tree. I also made glittered bunnies using some plaster bunnies I bought from the Target dollar bins (hopefully I will have a How To for these soon).
Games and Activities:
1. To keep busy during your bunny party you can play pin the nose on the bunny. I used the bunny head shape from the tissue paper fans (free download in that post) as a head we could pin noses on. My son helped me cut out pink bunny noses from construction paper. All we needed to finish up was a blindfold and some tape.
2. You can also buy bunny Peeps for everyone to eat and for an activity have them dip them in chocolate fondue. Warning – little kids get chocolate everywhere and laugh a lot while dipping everything, including their fingers in the chocolate.
As a party favor to give to your guests you can make a small jar of bunny noses using jelly beans and baby food jars. To read more about how to create your own bunny noses and get my free label download click here.

If you are looking to make a special bunny themed gift for the birthday girl follow this link to download the pattern for this bunny pillow. The original instructions are for making this bunny using felt and a sewing it using the blanket stitch. If you want to sew the bunny using fleece, make sure to add a half inch all around the pattern as you cut out your fabric.
The day of our bunny party was beautiful and we were lucky that the kids could all go outside and play for awhile during the party!
