Bunny party !

My little Fairy has her Birthday around Easter....When all the stores have baby bunnies. Last year, i decided it would be fun to have a Bunny Birthday Theme.



I got the bunny from the farm store and tried to hide it in the basement, but my Fairy sneaked and find him... This was the pictures when she found him and first met him....SO happy!
He is a Holland Lop Bunny. He looks like a squirrel. The ears grow and drop when they grow up.


Bunny instructions from my experience
Bunnies are great pets. Know that little kids need to be under supervision at all time with the bunny. Sit them on the couch and be with them. You don't want the baby to throw the bunny in the air...Hmmmm...by experience....
If the bunny bites, turn it on it's back say no firmly and put it back on the couch, not in the cage. Give it treats often when you hold them so they will like you. A Holland Lop is a little too big at adult size for a 2 to carry it. A Dwarf one is perfect.
Some bunnies have the tendency to dig, making a mess in a cage and on your walls. I have them in a hutch outside. With a heating lamp in winter. 


Can you tell how much she changed already! OHHH They grow up too fast!!

So i made this bunny cake. One layer of cake, freeze it and carve it. Make a template on paper first.
Coconut on top of white icing to make the fur and icing for details. Pink and brown in piping tube.



Cute plates....Easy clean up.






Fun memory...

Oh my goodness Frenchy! Can I move in with you? You are so much fun, and your children will appreciate it so much as they grow up. They will look back and say "remember when mom...." You create wonderful memories and that's so important! Have a great week, Marcia

Too Precious for words ...
You are so inspirational on making everyday special.
I agree with Vintage Frenchhen ... your children will remember all the wonderful memories you created for them. We have not yet been blessed with little ones, but have extended family members with little ones and everything is more special from the eyes of a child!

When I was young my mother had a bunny. It lived in the house and used a cat box. Fun to remember.
