A Bunny Picnic

We’re picnicking with Bunnies

and Everybunny is Welcome!

Easter Baskets are picnic ready~

 Bunny-Shaped Egg Salad & Pimento Cheese Sandwiches,

Carrot Cake Cookies, and Annie’s Bunny Snack Mix~

Polka dotted and plaid pails from Target make Easter Egg hunting a colorful affair~

Two woven baskets are filled with a variety of tender lettuces, cabbage, brussels sprouts, radishes, and carrots to satisfy hungry bunnies’ appetites~

Along with bunnies’ favorite flower to nibble on~

Petunias :)

Pails with Easter wishes from Michaels,

for serving~

Annie’s Organic Bunny Mix 

with baked cheddar bunny crackers & pretzels,

for snacking~

And Easter-ade for sipping~

Lemonade with a Bunny PEEPS® stirrer~

to quench your thirst at your picnic or

Easter Egg Hunt~

You can sip on the adult version~

a Peep-tini here.

Carrot Cake Cookies are quick & easy~ following box directions from a Duncan Hines Carrot Cake Mix~ with the addition of  oatmeal & nuts.

No bunny picnic would be complete

without baby carrots~

Pastel chipwood baskets from Michael’s are embellished with a ribbon, paper napkin and a Lindt Chocolate Carrot & Chocolate Bunny tucked inside~

 Serve your picnic fare in pastel cupcake liners inside your basket~ toss the liners when done and Easter Eggs are ready to be found and collected:)

Happy Easter!

    I think I need to make myself an Easter basket :-) Your stone bunny is wonderful, and I like how you have him/her holding the eggs. I saw the Annie snacks and passed them up. They are cute!

    I’m not sure why, but I haven’t been able to find Peeps at any of our supermarkets this year!

    Hi Mary, If I could I would be sitting right smack in the middle of your beautiful Bunny picnic. The veggie basket is so colorful with all the pretty flowers. Love how you are serving out of the little baskets and I love the sandwiches and the bunny crackers. The lemonade looks so refreshing, and the lake as your backdrop! Just beautiful. Great Post.
    Happy Easter Mary.

    Hello Mary,
    What a delightful post! I loved it! And, I think I need to move where you are – we had a ‘winter storm’ on the weekend and the snow is piled high outside my door! Ugh! It will be months before my tulips show their faces. Your photos transported me…Thanks!
