A Beatrix Potter Inspired Birthday

For Little Lady's second birthday we threw her a party inspired by a few of her favorite books. We've had a collection of Beatrix Potter's stories in her room since she was a newborn so Peter Rabbit, Hunka Munka, and Squirrel Nutkin have become some of her fondest friends. 


The guests were greeted by a Peter Rabbit inspired scarecrow that we made out of some scraps from the garage and an old coat and shoes. Since pre-made Beatrix Potter themed decorations were hard to find, and very expensive, we borrowed a couple things from Little Ladies room. We also put some streamers, scrapbook paper, and our printer to good use.

Food was a brunch buffet: coffee, orange juice, mini quiches, berries, coffee cake, bunny tails (aka donut holes), and carrots with hummus. 






Because most of the party guests were quite young, we skipped party games but did have a few fun activities: bunny ear headbands, Beatrix Potter coloring pages, and a bunny and carrot sensory bin. 





Finally, in lieu of cake, we had carrot cake cupcakes. 


I loved celebrating this girl - she is a treasure!
