Peter Rabbit 1 Year Old Birthday Party
Our son, Brighton, just turned one.
He is such a cutie and brings so much joy to our family.
His oldest two siblings adore him.
Our two-year-old is sometimes not too fond of him (especially when he plays with her toys),
but for the most part they play and get along well.
I debated on what to do for his one-year-old birthday party… until I saw some really cute Peter Rabbit party items at Burke Decor.
I purchased the Peter Rabbit napkins, cupcake wrappers & sticks and 2 fold-out cards to use as centerpieces.
I had many Peter Rabbit and Easter items that I knew I could use—which cuts costs, so, I decided to go with a Peter Rabbit theme.
When I decide to throw a party, I try to make it as affordable as possible (I share 17 tips on how to do this here).
I usually see what I have on hand as far as decorations, snacks, treats, etc. go. Despite the full buffet table and the tablescapes set for our 26 guests, this party cost less than $100.00 because I used many items, snacks, tableware and food that I already had on hand.
More details on the party can be found in these posts here:
I bought a cute red wheelbarrow and hoe and shovel for $10 on the local classifieds.
As soon as I saw the small vintage wheelbarrow, shovel, and hoe I knew that I wanted to use them as centerpieces on the table; so, I placed them in the middle and began working around them.
I had multiple books with Peter Rabbit and a Peter Rabbit stuffed animal (which I used in this Goodnight Moon Elf on the Shelf video) that I used for decoration.
I dressed Brighton in a little brown vest and green onsie with navy bottoms (which I already had).
My sweet sister-in-law held him tightly and securely on the chair while I took these photographs.
He kept trying to sneak pistachio nuts during the photo shoot.
The adults and kids who came, commented on how cute the party was.
Brighton, our smiley-happy-baby, appeared to enjoy it as well.
I made Brighton a birthday cake and topped it with a Peter Rabbit I made out of fondant.
I’ll post a video showing how I made it soon.
We took the top layer of the cake off and used it as Brighton’s ‘smash cake’.
I put a candle in it, but we didn’t light it because we didn’t want him to get burned.
We sang, Happy Birthday
and he loved it as he likes music and singing.
Then, after singing, Brighton dug in on his cake.
Milk, yellow cake, and vanilla bean frosting…
Happy Birthday, Brighton!
We are so glad you are part of our family!!
