Each spring we like to have a special lunch to celebrate the season, and this year we threw a Peter Rabbit spring soiree for my two nieces (who already love and appreciate all things Peter Rabbit). We pulled out our vintage Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddleduck figurines and tea set, ordered the most beautiful copy of Peter Rabbit that worked as part of the table display, and a gift for the littles afterward.
Our placemats and carrot decor table decor came from Hester & Cook. While the flower arrangement featured a large bunch of fresh carrots with stems still attached and fresh white flowers from Whole Foods.
This was our first every crudité board, and I have to say that my mom outdid herself. I helped pick out some of the veggies and prep the carrots for the board, but the rest is all her. It’s an absolute work of art!
— Crudité Board —
English Peas (pre-shelled)
Assorted Cherry Tomatoes
Colorful carrots (cut into sticks)
Fresh Flowers (for garnish)
Ranch, tzatziki, and honey mustard dips for our veggies
Having a Chicken Salad Chick not far away is always a plus when you’re having a luncheon. We picked up tubs of the Classic Carol, Fancy Nancy, and Lemon Basil, with the Fancy Nancy being our favorite, obviously.
Our croissants came from our local Whole Foods along with some fresh lettuce and veggies for a crudites board.
While we had grand plans of making a batch of scones when it came down to it, we didn’t have the time, so it was Panera’s mini scones to the rescue.
We picked up the carrot cake bundtini’s from our local Nothing Bundt Cakes, and the chocolate pudding was so easy to make, mix up some instant Jello Chocolate Pudding (with Lactose-Free milk), crumble up some Oreos for the topping, and add a strawberry. Making our strawberries look like carrots proved difficult, but they tasted delicious!
