Happy 151st Birthday, Beatrix!

Last year on Beatrix Potter's 150th birthday we had an impromptu painting party. It was so much fun that I decided to actually plan one this year! It was so much fun. I think my six wee leetle rabbits enjoyed it very much! I know I did. 

I found a few fun ideas on Pinterest. The little cabbages are oreo truffles in ruffled circles of tissue paper. So easy but so cute! The garden boxes are made from wafer cookies & frosting.

I asked the kids to wear an outfit inspired by their favorite Beatrix Potter character. 

Joel is Tom Kitten

Annelise is Moffat
{Tom's sister}

Jack is Tommy Brock the Badger
{Note his badger shoes}

James is Mr. Tod the Fox

Abbey is Cottontail
 one of Peter's sisters 

Wes is a foxy-whiskered-gentleman too
{And at the age where he gets easily embarrassed by Auntie.}

Oh, & I was Beatrix herself,  of course.


It really was a wonderful party! I'm so glad it worked out. I think we'll do it again next year!


  1. You are amazing! That's all there is to it! What a lovely party!

  2. You did a fabulous job, Michelle! Everything looked beautiful.I am sure your nieces and nephews had a wonderful time!

  3. What a wonderful tea party. How fun that the kids dressed up as the characters of Beatrix Potter. : )
