Oh, Baby! - Baby Wednesday's Bunny Baby Shower



One of my very best besties, Kate (AKA Hesson Haus), has a beautiful little girl named Wednesday (AKA Winnie). Before Winnie was born, my mom and I threw Kate a sweet little bunny baby shower. It took a lot of work and planning (and crafting!), but I think it turned out really cute and just how I wanted!


The mantle featured Pat the Bunny, The Bunny Book, The Tale of Peter Rabbit, Love You Forever, a soft plush bunny stuffed animal, I'll Love Your Forever quote painted onto canvas, tissue poms, and a name banner I made with scrapbook paper from Hobby Lobby hung with clothespins and twine. 



The table featured (more) tissue poms, paper streamers, cardboard initials (from Hobby Lobby) spray painted in light pink, a lace table runner, and two ceramic bunnies (also from Hobby Lobby).

Pretty in Pink sangria - sweet and tasty! (We also had water and sodas for the mom-to-be!)
Bunny Food - celery and carrots with ranch dressing (parfait cups from Amazon)
White Chocolate Popcorn - AKA crack (always a huge hit!) (Mini popcorn boxes from Party City)

White Chocolate Popcorn:
2 bags of popcorn (I've used sea salt & vinegar flavor as well as kettle corn flavor and they both turned out good)
Almond slivers (or any soft nut - pecans or walnuts would probably work well, too)
1 package of baking white chocolate or bark

Pop the popcorn as normal and then empty into a bowl. Mix in some of the almonds throughout. Melt chocolate in a separate bowl either in a double boiler or the microwave. Pour melted chocolate into popcorn mix bowl and use a spatula to mix all ingredients well. Pour over wax paper and separate large clusters so that it hardens in small pieces. Sprinkle the rest of the almonds on top of the popcorn before it hardens. Wait at least 30 minutes (just until chocolate has stiffened) and then enjoy!
Chicken salad and turkey & cheese bunny sandwiches (cut with a bunny shaped cookie cutter)
Cupcake pushpops (containers from Amazon and pops held in place with spray painted foam from Hobby Lobby)
Custom monogram and bunny mini-cookies from pfconfections on Etsy
Wishes for Baby cards and Baby Shower Bingo game
The favors: mini pink moscato wine bottles and grapefruit Burt's Bees wrapped in tulle and ribbon (these were VERY popular!)

I got a lot of positive feedback after the shower ended and, most importantly, Kate loved it, so I'd say it was a success!

    1. I got them at a grocery store in the wine/liquor aisle. These I left the Beringer labels on, but I did similar favors for a LOTR (http://theinvitationmom.blogspot.com/2015/01/miriam-of-shreveport-lord-of-rings-baby.html) shower, and removed the brand labels and did personalized labels using Avery printable labels from an office store. :)

    3. They are about 3.5"x2.5" that I used. Hope this helps!

  3. Do you have step by step directions on how to creat the wine bottles? I love them and want to make mine look as great as yours!

    1. Hi, Laura! I got the mini wine bottles at a grocery store in the wine/liquor aisle. These I left the Beringer labels on, but I did similar favors for a LOTR (http://theinvitationmom.blogspot.com/2015/01/miriam-of-shreveport-lord-of-rings-baby.html) shower, and removed the brand labels and did personalized labels using Avery printable labels (3.5"x2.5") from an office store. :) To remove the labels, I peeled them off and then used Goo Gone and water to wipe off the sticky residue. I then washed the bottles to get all of the Goo Gone off and dried completely before putting the personalized Avery labels I printed on each bottle. I bought tulle from a craft store and tied the top with small ribbon. I hope this helps! :)
