We recently had the honor of catering a family’s 1st birthday party for their twins. To respect the privacy of the client we won’t go into details, but we can say that this was a monumental occasion for this family. The fact we were chosen to help make this special occasion come together really touched our hearts and we got to work on a menu to perfectly fit the theme, Beatrix Potters’ Peter Rabbit. We reread the story and drew our inspiration from her words and then added in a few kid favorite items to round the menu out.
Peter Rabbit Inspired Menu
Turkey, Ham, & Spinach Spirals with Avocado Aioli on Tomato & Spinach Wraps

Check out these FREE Peter Rabbit Activity Sheets & Games for the older kids who may be attending! Have the children decorate a flower pot + plant seeds. This makes for a fun hands on activity plus they make perfect favors! If you plan on hosting the party outdoors, for a cute touch to put the drinks in wheel barrows – a big one for the adult drinks and then little one for the kids! When thinking about decorations the best go-to color palette consists of pastel orange, greens, blues and creams. If you know anyone with pet bunnies, reach out to them and see if they would be willing to bring them by and (under the handlers watchful eye) let the little ones interact with them! As always, we here at Cyn Shea’s would love to cater your event, so please give our catering team a call at (256) 882-2837 to start talking details, and together we can plan the perfect Peter Rabbit inspired event!
