Bunny Flowers & Carrot Decorations for Easter

How adorable is this floral bunny peeking out from a tote full of Easter eggs?! It’s so easy to make and would be a wonderful surprise for your little ones on Easter morning.

• Put a piece of floral foam in a waterproof container inside of the tote or whatever container you are using.
• The bunny’s face is made from one white football mum and two white mini carnations taped together and inserted into the foam.
• The ears are made of felt, attached to a stick and inserted in the foam behind the mum. Glue the eyes, felt nose and wire whiskers directly to the mum using a hot glue gun.
• Add plastic colored eggs to fill up the rest of the tote and insert pieces of solidaster or other filler flowers into the foam between the eggs.
• Add a bow tie ribbon.
• Print a “Some bunny loves you” that you create, or download one from the Internet, and use a glue dot or glue gun to attach to the ribbon.

Carrots and bunnies go together like peanut butter and chocolate! Here are a few carrot-inspired, creative ways to keep all of your bunnies happy this Easter season!

Bloomin’ Carrot Bouquet

Tulips are one of my favorite flowers, and we are in prime tulip season! They are so easy to arrange. Just give each stem a fresh cut to the length you need for your container and remove the excess leaves. Make sure that the container is totally clean and fill with clean, cool water before arranging your tulips.

Speaking of the vessel you use to display your tulips – what bunny wouldn’t love this carrot vase! For this carrot vase I used one bag of pre-peeled mini carrots, a rubber band, and a lowball glass.

Follow the recipe below to create a perfect and healthy cocktail for an Easter brunch. To prepare, first muddle the ginger slices in the bottom of a cocktail shaker before adding the rest of the ingredients. Shake well and pour over ice. Or make a pitcher full and let your guests serve themselves!
