DIY Easter table: this year our little bunny is turning 3 on the same weekend of Easter, so the choice of the birthday theme seemed obvious! Some bunny’s 3! Scroll down to read all the DIY ideas for her bunny birthday and Easter table 🐰.
We like slow/small birthday parties for our girls, for many reasons since they were born the very same of their birthday is just the 4 of us, and then the days after we visit the family to meet everyone and enjoy their company 🥰. That’s a way to stress less about preparations too. But we like to have a nice table with a theme that the girls usually ask for.
For that bunny birthday theme, I chose the letter board “some bunny’s 3” , I cut out a number 3 and used the DIY garland that I made for her first birthday.
We made a few props ourselves, here’s the list:
Eggcardboard carrots 🥕, pasta bumblebees 🐝,bunny toppers 🐰 a real carrot bouquet and the piñata is an upcycled one: keep reading to see!
Last week we also made these bunny ears headbands, so easy and perfect for Easter! You can see the video tutorial below. I added a small crown for the birthday girl 👑.
The food was handmade too, only easy recipes! For the cake, cupcakes and doughnuts I used the same recipe: the it’s a variant of my grandma’s yoghurt cake.
1 yogurt (I use plant based),1 yogurt glass of olive oil, 1 banana ripped (or sweetener of tour choice,but it’s also the alternative to 1egg), 1tbsp baking soda, 3 yogurt glasses of flour.
Mix the liquid ingredients and the solid ones separately (sift the flour). Add the solids to the liquids and mix again. Use the mold of your choice and bake for 25 min/180°c. Side note: To create a bunny cake, you’ll need a round mold.
That very same recipe works perfectly for cupcakes and I loved how doughnuts came up! Look at the photos:
I used raped coco to create a fake fur for the bunny cupcakes (that’s my favorite way to avoid extra sugar to my sugarfree recipes: frostings and icings are hard without sweeteners, and I find them very time consuming). I added the bunny ears and tails with the templates that I created for the occasion. I tried to add spread cheese to some doughnuts and it was delicious! Like a sort of bagel! And we decorated them with DIY sugar daisies that the girls use just as kind of playdough 😆.
Bees energy balls recipe:
As I wanted to add spring vibes to the theme and the party needed a piñata, I thought about some bumblebees and a honeycomb piñata. We created bumblebees from pasta to decorate the piñata and the table. And also we made these carrot cake energy balls . Here’s the recipe:
1 cup of rolled oats, 2 cups of shredded carrots, 1tbsp cinnamon,1tbsp ginger, 1/2 cup of raisins, 1/4 coconut flour, 1 pinch of salt. Roll the mixture into 1 inch balls. I added almond flakes as wings and dark chocolate for stripes.
So for the bunny cake you’ll need to cut the round in a half. Use the stuffing of tour choice to add the two parts and let them stand up like a rainbow. I added a bit of stuffing all over and finally put the raped coconut and the ears. To create fake grass I used more coconut and mixed to 1/2 cup of matcha. Check the video below:
Funnily enough, I found the perfect cutters for Easter just a week ago. I love cutters because we used them too for salt dough and other crafts, so I couldn’t resist these ones: I added some cookies to the party! Here’s my favorite cookie recipe:
- 165g flour
- ¾ tsp cornstarch
- ¼ tsp baking powder
- 1 ½ tsp ground ginger
- ¼ tsp ground cinnamon
- ⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
- ⅛ tsp ground cloves
- ¼ tsp salt
- 2 tbsp (28g) coconut oil
- 1 ripped banana
- ¼ cup honey
Mix liquid ingredients,then solid ones, then everything. Put the mixture inside a reusable food bag and chill the dough for at least one hour in the fridge. Then make the cookies, pre-heat the oven and bake 180°c for 20min.
The honeycomb piñata!!
If one thing was clear for the little one’s party was the piñata. I decided to upcycle a Chinese lamp into it. I just painted it yellow, added some bumblebees with thread and cover the bottom with paper and a few laces. The girls loved it, and as we didn’t break it (just removed the bottom): they asked to use it as her new bedroom’s lamp.🤭
And here’s a little video of the final table! Hope you liked that DIY Easter table!Sara xoxo
