Peter Rabbit Tea Party

“Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality.”

Beatrix Potter

My mother had been planning a Beatrix Potter tea party for her grandchildren for a while,

long before we knew of Prince George’s first birthday.

The walkway was lined with little reminders of which way to go.

There were snacks awaiting the little guests; like strawberries fallen in a little oreo dirt and white chocolate bunnies.

Costume jewelry to adorn the ladies.

Characters from the story made special appearances everywhere.

Along with other special touches.

Including frogs in the pond.

Lavender hung with care…

Just like the story book. (Mom’s art work, a gift to her grand-daughter from years ago)

Mr. McGregor’s garden was a must. (No need to turn up the grass, just lay a tarp topped with dirt and cabbage leaves!)

Careful Peter!

It was a bounty for little rabbits.

The setting was absolutely lovely, nestled under a shade tree.

Vivid florals strung in the air added ambiance.

Photo ops are some of my favorite party options… They make great gifts to send out with your “thank you’s”!

Refreshments included rabbit and flower shaped sandwiches. (And wrapped chocolates that get eaten first)

Chocolate milk served in a Beatrix Potter china set.

The ladies and gents quite enjoyed themselves.

Every children’s party needs activities! First it was a hunt for Jemima Puddle Duck’s lost eggs.

Which made for a riveting egg toss! (Note: make sure the eggs are hard boiled!)

Are both of her feet behind the hat?

Story Time!

And a butterfly hunt! (No butterflies were hurt, in our catch and release.)

Who’s ready for some cake?

Now let’s burn off some sugar with a sack race!

  3. How special! This is beyond lovely! Everything about it looks amazing! What a great grandma!!!

  4. This looks fantastic! I can’t even believe all of the attention to details. Rhonda has outdone herself, again. You ladies throw the nicest celebrations I’ve ever seen, it’s always a pleasure to attend one of your parties, and I am always excited to see what you come up with next ☺️

  5. Omg….that’s the most beautiful party ever! Soo much effort has gone into it and everything looks perfect. Your mum did such an amazing job!!

  6. Love, love, love this! What a lovely tea party theme! My Mom, daughters and I have a great love for the beautifully-written Beatrix Potter books! I can’t wait to show this post to my Mom — she will love it as well! One of my earliest memories is cuddling up with my Mom while she read Beatrix Potter books to me! I would have her read them over and over and over!! 🙂

      1. I need to get our Beatrix Potter books again! It would be fun to somehow incorporate them into our school routine for creative writing/reading! The girls would definitely relate to Peter Rabbit’s antics after being around our bunnies! Haha! 😀
