I’ve been waiting for Easter to roll around again to share this adorable Egg Hunt First Birthday that Lauren and family hosted for her youngest son.
Here’s the invitation I designed with a custom bunny die cut. Lauren added a tiny blue bow. She does love some detailed hand work. “Hippity Hoppity, there’s a birthday on its way.”
There are lots of sweet little details sure to make everybunny weak in the knees.
There was signage letting guests know which way to go.
The festivities were around back so guests were pointed in the right direction with this giant carrot pointer and Egg Hunt signage.
Lauren made these great yarn eggs and hung them from the trees. I love what great visual impact they had for relatively little cost. Except time, that is. I recall that they took a while to make!
Sweet white child-size tables covered in burlap and topped with these white egg trees planted in candy were set up on the back porch. Love.
I’m pretty sure this is the cutest place setting I’ve ever seen. I love the addition of flowers and mini eggs to the grass mats. And don’t get me started on the bunny napkins. I am TOTALLY stealing that.
Each guest chair had a yarn pom bunny tail—blue for the boy bunnies and pink for the girls. Swoon.
The hungry little bunnies munched on sliders, carrots in flower cups with ranch dip, cheese, mini cream puffs, Annie’s bunny cereal dry in flower muffin liners, and assortment of fresh fruit, cheese, bunny pops, and plastic eggs for the littlest bunnies were filled with puffs and yogurt melts.
Thirsty rabbits drank from these lidded cups with bunny straws.
There were sippy cups on hand for the little ones.
Adults even got in on the fun with these cottontail drink cups.
The kids all brought their baskets and took turns hunting eggs, letting the crawlers and new walkers get in on the fun too!
There was a surprise visit from the Easter Bunny! The birthday boy was a little unsure.
Then it was time for cake.
And a sweet little Easter smash cupcake for the birthday boy!
This is one of my favorite photos. Look at the delight in his face!
I love the birthday banner too, made from kraft letters affixed to egg-shaped doilies. “Hippity Hoppy Birthday!”
Inside the house, there were more sweet decorations to be found.
Complete with a play space for baby, no less.
When it was time to pack up their eggs and go home, guests each left with a keepsake egg hand-painted by a local artist who donates proceeds to a local not-for-profit.
As we’ve come to expect, Lauren did an amazing job. Her attention to detail is unparalleled, and what a special day it made for her baby boy’s first birthday!
