As we proceed with “New in Shop Week” we’ve got some more exciting, exciting news… you can finally dress your kiddo in coordinating party tops thanks to our new iron-ons!

We can’t tell you how often we get requests to send our designs to a seamstress so she can use it for a top that will perfectly match our party decor and it’s so nice to no longer need to out-source this stuff.  We’re calling these our “smash cake iron-ons” because we think they’ll be perfect to jazz up a onesie or plain white t-shirt you already have on hand and don’t mind your little one getting filthy in for that first piece of birthday cake!

That being said, the iron-ons aren’t limited to babies, we can do them for big kids too… check out this ones we just used for an upcoming camping party we’ll be talking to you all about in the coming weeks:

 Just $9 will get you a custom iron on that can go on a t-shirt or onesie of your choice!!

This week only, enter to win a digital “you print” invite good for any party in our shop along with a set of cupcake liners, 4 poms and… you guessed it… one custom iron-on!  Just leave a comment on any blog post or facebook post this week and you’re entered to win!

There’s obviously so many things you can do with a bunny party that are totally Easter-riffic but we’re doing our best to not have an Easter overload here.  The crafts and activities we’re loving are bunnyful, not to be confused with Easter-riffic.

This bunny ears tutorial comes with an easy-to-mock diagram.  It’s super simple, fun and sets the scene well in our opinion.  The bunny handprint craft is silly, messy, and fun!

For favors we thought these tasty treats we mentioned yesterday were worth bringing up again since they double as functional food and easy party favors:

We also love the idea of offering your guests some “cotton tails” on the way out the door:

or these darling little treats:

If you’re a crafter by heart and have the time we spotted these sock bunnies, and fell in love:

For those that are middle of the road crafty, the bunny jars pictured above are a surprisingly simple DIY but we love that they don’t scream DIY they kinda scream Martha Stewart!  Fill them with the cotton candy we mentioned above or even marshmallows and you’ve got “cotton tails” in a jar ;) .

So many darling ideas, so little time!  Today’s your last opportunity to win a digital “you print” invite good for any party in our shop so don’t forget to leave a comment on any blog post this week and you’re in!

If there’s one food that’s synonymous with bunnies, it’s carrots.

chocolate pearl carrotsgummy carrotscarrot stick cookie in dirtcarrot crescentscarrot cupcake, , carrot cake, and of course just good old fashioned carrots and dip.  Having a food table devoted to carrots is instantly festive for your bunny party and the kids will love all their orange options!

The next obvious option is eggs:

but since hard boiled eggs are only gonna fly with a small handful of your young guests we’ve got a couple more bunny options we think will work great including Annie’s cheddar bunnies served up in our party coordinating snack cups:

and Bunny shaped sandwhiches:

All you need is a bunny cookie cutter and you can use said bunny cookie cutter for bunny cookies which will compliment a dessert table complete with:

bunny cakebunny cookies,  bunny cake popsbunny ear cupcakescookies and peep pretzels - can’t forget the peeps!  For even more peep fun you can stick them onto your straws and jazz up your drink of choice:

 Pair them with our new POP Party Strwas and you’ve got bunny fun for all!

bunny parties

Who knows if it’s because Easter is suddenly around the corner or if spring time just brings bunnies to the brain but without a doubt this time of year we start getting party requests featuring this furry friend of ours:

As you can see we have a couple to choose from and the nice thing about Mr. Rabbit is he’s a fairly gender neutral guy!  If you see the bunny you like but not the color combo you’re interested in, as always we’re happy to customize.

The fun thing about this party is not only can it be for your little one’s next birthday party, you could decide to use any of these designs for a more festive Easter or Easter play date with friends!  We’ll have plenty of ideas this week to inspire you no matter what purpose your bunny decor will be serving.  And not to worry, we won’t be including any creepy inflatable bunnies… not that anyone here has a weird phobia or anything.

We’re giving away a digital “you print” invite good for any party in our shop, so don’t forget to leave a comment on any blog post this week in order to enter to win!
