Peter Rabbit is a firm favourite for Mums-to-Be when decorating their child’s nursery and the popularity is reflected in the number of themed baby showers, christenings and first birthday parties I have seen over the years…
Add that special detail to your Peter Rabbit themed party with his little blue coat hanging among the vegetable patch in Mr McGregor’s garden.
I hosted an adorable Peter Rabbit themed baby shower and created my very own Mr McGregor’s garden as a backdrop to a wishing tree station.
I wanted to put a twist on the traditional custom of a guest book; so I used a large wishing tree where I asked guests to write their wishes onto tags and hang them onto the branches.
I completed the garden with a plant pot, watering can, foliage and of course a Peter Rabbit scarecrow! It was a perfect way to provide lasting memories and link into the Peter Rabbit theme. You can check the baby shower out here.
