DIY Tutorial ~ Bunny Boom Booms aka Chocolate Covered Bunny Peeps

Last week we shared with your our newest Easter Party Suite ~ Fleece and Fur. If you missed it, you can click here to read all about it. Today, we are going to teach you how to make these super cute and oh so yummy Bunny Boom Booms! They are so easy too! 


Here's what you'll need: 


You will also need a wooden skewer or something similar and a small cup of water. 


Dip the skewer into the water ~ this will make it easier to insert the straw without bending it. 


Then insert the paper straw. 
Place candy melts in a microwave safe bowl or plate and microwave them for about 30 seconds. Making sure not to burn it. We used half the bag of melts for this project. Stir the melts until they are smooth in texture.


Place the marshmallow Peep bunny into the melted candy melts and make sure it gets coated very well. We stirred ours around the bowl. 


Place a small yellow candy as the Bunny's tail and you are done!! We used Skittles, but you can use an M&M or Sixlets.
Yep! I told it was easy!! 


Place one of our cute Easter tags on it and you have yourself a party favor! 
Perfect for Easter, Baby Shower, Birthday or any Springtime celebration!  
We would LOVE for you to share this with your friends, using hashtags #BunnyBoomBoomsDIY and #BellaGreyDesignsDIY!

Fleece and Fur Easter Party Suite

  
This year we went with the ever adorable bunny and lamb combo. We came across the most
adorable paper lambs last year and knew we had to use them this year in our party suite. 



 Our Fleece and Fur party suite is made up of soft lemon yellow and white with silhouettes of both the bunny and the lamb. We love the color combination of this party suite as it just brightens our day! What other color can make you smile more than yellow? 


 
We added a few key elements for the table as we styled it. All the serving dishes were white as well as the linens. All the accents of yellow were pops of colorful food items, such as the Nest of Bunnies were yellow Peep Bunnies and the lemon ice cupcakes were erfect to hold our Fleece and Fur toppers. Our DIY Bunny Boom Booms
were accented with yellow bunny tails and a cute little favor tag that reads "Happy Easter to one of my favorite Peeps!" 


 
To incorporate the Fleece" of our Fleece and Fur party suite, we added some super adorable fondant lamb faces and hoofs to our white cupcakes. Each of the lamb faces were different, so make sure you take a close look. 

 
Our fabulous vendor Allyson of Allyson's Cookie Jar created the beautiful bunny and lamb cookies ~ they are as delicious as they are beautiful! Kristen of Kristen Nicole Photography, did a fabulous job of capturing the beauty of this party suite. We are absolutely thrilled how this party suite turned out. 


 


 
You can find the entire party in our shop!

DIY Tutorial ~ Banana Bunny Shake

Today we are showing you how to make a delicious banana shake. 
 

 Here's what you'll need: 

1 Banana
1C Milk
2T Honey
Yellow Sugar Sprinkles
Yellow Bunny Peeps

In a blender or food processor add all your ingredients: 


 Add your banana


 Milk


 Honey


Yogurt ~ we used the Kroger blended Vanilla yogurt


 Prepare your drinking glass with some fun sprinkles around the rim
 


We took our finger and placed water on the rim of the glass so the sprinkles would adhere to it. Twisted the glass in the sprinkles to get a good thick coat. 


This is what it should look like



Pour the banana shake into your glass and adorn it with a Bunny Marshmallow Peep and a straw! 

 
WOW!! That was good!!! Now to make a few more before the kids get home from school! Great afternoon snack!!

Welcome to Isabella's Tiki Hut ~ Real Party

I don't know about you, but we've got Spring Fever and we are gearing up for Summertime!!! We love being outside until the sun goes down and enjoying the warmer weather. 
That is why it's the perfect time to feature our colorful and vibrant Island Style Luau Party we designed and styled for my daughter. So grab your leis and your grass skirts and get ready to party at Isabella's Tiki Hut!

\


 We had so much fun designing and styling this party! Kids love to have things that are personalized with their name on it, what better way for the kids to not lose their cup than to have their name on it, of easy finding later. There was only one boy at the party and that was the birthday girl's little brother, so it was only appropriate for him to have his own glass! 
We wanted to portray the island feel throughout the party, so leis and grass skirts were used for the  main dessert table.

We asked our ever so talented baker to create a volcano cake for us, Shelley did not disappoint us! The kids had so much fun watching it erupt! 


Of course, you can't have a party without all the yummy goodies! 

Keeping with the Hawaiian theme, we created these fabulous fruit tarts {tutorial to come}. 

We knew we had to have a pig roast! 

A few months before the party we ran across these fabulous totem ice trays and we knew instantly they would have to be part of the party. What kid doesn't like Jell-O jigglers?  

Our drink table hosted two kinds of beverages for the kids ~ lemonade and Hawaiian Punch in fun shell shaped bowls.




We couldn't resist decorating the utensils too, to match the rest of the decor. 


Our mini dessert table held some fun items, like coconuts, "sandy" treats, chocolate seashells and fruit cups with palm tree toothpicks and brown pom-pom "coconuts".  But our favorite item on this table were the beautiful and simply delicious Hawaiian themed cookies by Roni's Sugar Creations!



To say “Mahalo” to the girls for coming, each one took home a lei and a personalized bracelet Isabella had made them. 







For entertainment, our prop guy {my husband}, made a limbo for the girls to play; they swam and hula hooped.


We hope you enjoyed the party! It was so much fun. 
You can find all of our designs including this party suite in our shop! 
This party was also featured on Hostess with the Mostess.
