It's a Green Fury Bunny Party

Good Morning! Yah, it's April. It WILL warm up some day SOON, right? One of the first signs of spring are all those cute but pesty rabbits in our garden. Today I'm joining Barb at Grits and Glamour. She is hosting a Bunny on a Stick party. It's fun to see what creative ways people are using these little cuties! Thanks Barb for this first day of April fun! :)

I purchased fourteen of these babies, thinking I had overdone it. I knew they were cute but would my customers agree? Would I end up with a whole extended family of bunnies all over my workroom?

NO! They were one of the fastest items to go out the door.

Each time I looked around, I saw someone carrying one of these little cuties. I had a dozen of those little robin's egg blue "bowls" and don't have one left. I potted several bunnies in those and some tiny ferns in others. I loved grouping them in threes. I had planned on having three left for me and maybe even one to give to my mom, but that isn't happening. There are just two left and one wasn't even potted for people to take, so they really were a hit! I may have to see if I can find more. This one I am keeping for myself. It was not with the other plants with a price tag. I don't have much blue but I love this little Blue Delft creamer I found at the thrift store. The foam is not glued down so that this little guy can be removed after spring and used for something else. Click on the pictures to enlarge and see details.
I liked the mini cabbage leaves in one for variety. Lots of variety is good when you have ladies coming to shop!
Click on this picture. Can you see the little birds on the cup? This was found at a thrift store. It had the tinest chip which I covered with moss. I paid .50 for it!! (thought about keeping it, but I can't keep everything!) Oh on second glance, I'm not sure the birds are showing from this angle. Believe me, they were darling!
For our bunny party snack, I wanted to make sure the bunnies weren't hungry. Perhaps this will keep them out of our gardens.
Oh! There are some pastel M&M's just for us!
I've enjoyed this Bunny on a Stick party. Now I'm going back to Barb's to see how others have used these precious furries.
Thanks for stopping by today!!

Barb @ GritsandGlamour said...

I am not surprised they went so fast, but then again your containers and such made them so cute. You might want to refill the M&M bowl, I grabbed them all. Sorry. :-D

Thanks so much for joining in on todays party. Blessings, Barb

Darling topiaries! I really like the idea of using teacups to hold the bunnies!

No wonder they were such a hit. They all look so pretty! I'm glad you're keeping the one in the sugar bowl, because it is such a pretty sugar bowl. If you had only kept another one, maybe they would have made babies, so that you could have one for your mother! laurie
