Pull It All Together

Build Your Peter Rabbit Table Centrepiece
  • Napkins as Structure: Fold two white napkins and place them in a medium-sized white bowl. Between the napkins, place the Peter Rabbit cut-out figure upright.
  • Arrange Greenery: Select cuttings of wormwood and sage to echo pastel theme. Wrap bases of cuttings in wet paper towels and secure them in small sandwich bags to prevent wilting while keeping the cardboard cutout dry.
  • Position Cuttings: Tuck cuttings in front and behind Peter Rabbit cutout.
  • Add Final Touches: Slip pastel blue eggs around the cutout to complete the centerpiece.
Disclaimer:

Choose your centrepieces carefully. If children are at an age where they tend to put items in their mouth, it may be wise to avoid plants such as wormwood. A more suitable theme may be Mr McGregor’s Garden theme.

  • Arrange Side Bowls: Position smaller white bowls on either side of Peter Rabbit centerpiece. Use double-sided tape to wrap and secure picket fence cupcake wrappers around bowls (trim as necessary). Fill bowls with currant buns.
  • Tuck smaller bowls, filled with mini milk chocolate candy eggs.
  • Incorporate Garland: Weave two blue and green egg garlands around bowls and main centerpiece.
  • Adjust for Table Size: For larger table settings, replicate the arrangement of bowls filled with wormwood and sage (excluding the Peter Rabbit figure), bowls filled with currant buns and bowls with pastel eggs, on both sides of the centerpiece.
Table Place Setting
  • Layer the Plates: Place a white dinner plate at each setting. Add a pastel blue side plate on top, then neatly fold a white napkin and place on the side plate. Complete this stack with a pastel blue bowl.
  • Arrange Egg Cups: Instead of the traditional placement on top of plates, position egg cups to the side on a small white plate.
  • Gift Bags as Place Cards: Use Meri Meri Peter Rabbit gift bags as dual-purpose place cards. Fill each bag with white tissue paper and a small gift, placing them at each setting for your guests.

  • Arrange the Plates: Place a large circular dinner plate directly on the napkin. Place a square Peter Rabbit paper plate on top, allowing the rounded edges of the dinner plate to peek out
  • Position the Egg Cups: Egg cups are traditionally placed on the main plate… but then you’d be blocking the cute Peter Rabbit plate design! Create a layered look with little egg cups on mini and small saucers to the side of the main plate, where a water glass would typically be located.

Create a fresh and natural centerpiece inspired by Mr. McGregor’s garden using fresh vegetables and simple garden elements.

  • Prepare the Base: Fill medium-sized white bowls and a pitcher with ice water, adding a few ice cubes to keep the water chilled and vegetables fresh.
  • Arrange the Vegetables: Place butterhead lettuce with roots attached into bowls. For visual interest, boost carrots in the pitcher so they peek above the rim. Extra large ice cubes can be used to prop up.
  • Secure the Vegetables: Loosely wrap brown twine around carrot stems to keep bundled together.
  • Add Character Cutouts: Insert wooden skewers into lettuce to anchor the character cutouts securely. Place the Mr. McGregor cutout in one bowl and Peter Rabbit popping out of a watering can in the other.
  • Final Placement: Position the pitcher filled with carrots at the center of the table, flanked by lettuce-filled bowls to frame.
BuilD Mr McGregor’s Garden Table Place Setting

  • To complement the mini terracotta pots holding butter, use a small terracotta pot base to hold a mini plate, egg cup, and top with a mini glass cloche. (Tip: check cloche height vs egg cup + egg height before purchasing.)
