peter rabbit party 12

Yesterday, I was over at Redeemed Reader talking about How To Throw a Book-Themed Party.  Are you looking for a creative idea for a party theme?  Why not pull from a classic and loved story.  Oh, there are so many ideas whether you are planning a children’s party or a baby shower.  If you missed it, head over and read the post.  I have lots of suggestions for you!


For this feature party, I settled on Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Peter Rabbit.  Here is what I didn’t share yesterday:

Simple Invitations:  printed on cardstock, perforated by my Silhouette Cameo (helpful, but not necessary) and glued around a packet of pea seeds.  Did I mention I got these seeds for 20 cents a packet?  Inexpensive and perfect for our garden theme.

Carrot Cake Cupcakes, of course.

I used the cupcake toppers from this Meri Meri Peter Rabbit Cupcake Kit.

 One of the Activities:  Acting out the story.

Cardstock Carrot Favors filled with CORN from Mr. McGregor’s Garden . . . ok, it was really buttery, salted popcorn.  I did get a couple weird looks from the kids when I handed them out (which in my book, means success!).  I made these with my Silhouette Cameo.


It was a lovely party.  Peter Rabbit was a great theme to work with.  The activities (read more at Redeemed Reader) were fun and engaging.  The cupcakes, delish and good enough to eat more than just one.  😉
