1. Storybook Inspired Invites

Just like every good story begins with an enticing introduction, every good party starts with an enticing invitation! We really leaned into the theme, and modeled our Peter Rabbit party invitations to look like a page straight out of the classic Beatrix Potter book.

We recommend including elements of the classic tale into your invitations, and hand-lettering addresses to complete the timeless look. We especially love how sweet and innocent this aesthetic looks for an adorable Peter Rabbit-themed baby shower!

2. Green Scenery

Nothing suits a Peter Rabbit party quite like a green garden backdrop. So if it's possible, have your spring-themed celebration outside! It's the best place for adventuring, and playing all those Peter Rabbit-themed party games.

If throwing an inside fête, be sure to include lots of florals, foliage, and earthy elements in your decor choices. This is especially key if you're planning a Peter Rabbit tea party! To really play up the springtime look, try draping greenery inside and around woven baskets. And don't forget the carrots! We decorated with oversized paper mache carrots, so break out the craft supplies and get creative!

3. Easter Baskets With Brimming Bouquets

Floral bouquets are always a good idea, especially for Springtime celebrations. We love the look of an arrangement inside of an Easter basket to tie into the Peter Rabbit theme. For flower types and colors, we recommend sticking with lots of pastels, and adding pops of orange and violet. 


We put our bouquet in this stunning cracked egg basket, and topped it with a gingham Easter flag. Not only does it make a lovely centerpiece for a Peter Rabbit brunch, you can also reuse the basket and flag for an Easter gift!

4. Decor Straight from the Book

If you really want your guests to be immersed into the magical world of Peter Rabbit, consider decorating with the book! This adorable hanging mobile decoration is a DIY dream that can be hung in a baby’s nursery post-party. Craft one yourself out of an old copy of the book for the prettiest Peter Rabbit party decoration!

For something a bit simpler, but just as fun and hoppy, embellish your party space (or even the front of a high chair) with this charming character garland. (The die cutting here in the likeness of the characters is just too cute!)

5. Powder Blue Accents

When we think of Easter colors, we usually gravitate toward pastels, and of course, light pink. But there’s something so aesthetically pleasing about adding powder blue to the mix, especially since it’s the color worn by Peter Rabbit himself in the classic tales. 

We set our table with the most immaculate powder blue tablecloth, and embellished with glassware in the same hue. We also incorporated these fantastic blue melamine egg dishes and plaid napkins to further complement the egg-cellent setting.

6. Rabbit Themed Homeware

One of our favorite aspects of this Peter Rabbit party are the elevated glassware elements. We adore this pair of glass rabbits, and how wonderful they look as an Easter decoration all season long. We filled ours with blue and green saltwater taffy, but they’d look just as darling filled with any kind of Easter candy or fresh produce!

We also included this charming little bunny made for serving crackers. These homeware elements are a staple for Springtime brunches and Easter gatherings, but they’re just as fitting to incorporate into a Peter Rabbit party any time of year.

7. Peter Rabbit Paperware

We are obsessed with Meri Meri Peter Rabbit party supplies, so we recommend picking up some paper party goods for your celebration. We set our table with these stunning paper Peter Rabbit party cups, plates, and napkins. We love layering paper with permanent for a more elevated place setting, so we also set out some white dishes, gold cutlery, and blue glasses. 

However, our favorite part of this tableware set has to be the rabbit shaped plates.They're incredibly detailed, so they also make an excellent decoration when propped up or strung as a DIY-banner.

As for other munchies, we included some poppy seed crackers, fluffy breadsticks, and hard boiled eggs. All of which wash down wonderfully with a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice.

9. Tiny Tasty Treats

Another tasty option are mini peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. These are ideal if you're planning a Peter Rabbit birthday party for kids. 

We added themed cake toppers to ours for an extra playful touch. And let's be honest, PB&J isn't just for the little bunnies. So don't be afraid to make a few other kinds of finger sandwiches for the adults, too. We think some mini cucumber sandwiches would be a fabulous idea for a Peter Rabbit baby shower!

Chocolate covered strawberries as a Peter Rabbit party dessert idea.

Another sweet treat must-have for any bunny-themed party are chocolate covered strawberries. Orange chocolate covered strawberries, to be specific. Add a little orange food coloring into melted white chocolate or purchase orange chocolate melts for a delicious dessert that looks like a carrot!

We think every party needs a cake, so we try to include one in all of our celebrations. A sweet birthday cake like this with flower and character details would be stunning for a Peter Rabbit 1st birthday party.

And if you're not up to baking and decorating a Peter Rabbit cake, go for something a little simpler, but just as scrumptious. Classic carrot cake is ideal for spring parties, so we picked up some lovely individual carrot cakes and served them on these adorably illustrated dessert plates. Bon Appetit!

10. A Sweet Send-Off

The secret to the perfect party is sending your guests home with their hands full, and their hearts hoppy! These rabbit themed cookie cutters make the most wonderful Peter Rabbit party favor. Add them in with some baking supplies, frosting, and a few other goodies for a charming Peter Rabbit party bag idea. 

Even better, whip up some cookies beforehand and incorporate a little decorating session into your celebration. This is one of our favorite party tricks for entertaining guests of all ages. You can even turn it into a little Peter Rabbit party game by sparking some competition for who can make the cutest cookie!

And if you’re up to really spoiling your party guests, we love the idea of sending them home with an Easter basket full of goodies and basket stuffers. These traditional wicker baskets are an Easter classic, and we filled ours with some adorable plush rabbits and chicks. This would make a wonderful gift for a little bunny’s first or second birthday, or a mama bunny’s baby shower.
