The big Easter blog!

I ♥ Easter! I guess it started when I was little as it usually meant my birthday, school holidays and of course chocolate!

It doesn't have to be all about chocolate, for us it's now a time to spend with family and for many it is still about the celebration of Jesus resurrection.

I thought I would share with you some alternatives that will last a lot longer than chocolate.

For once lets start with the boys!

Top left is a gorgeous little bunny named Bobby. He is made by Ribryba and can be picked up from Millaruby designs for $35, Theodore is also gorgeous there in a chocolate brown.

Top right I found this bargain at Bubhug on sale for $15! It consists of a 100% cotton towel bath support with attached toy and matching bath mit, comes in blue or pink bunny, green frog or yellow giraffe. Also check out the matching hooded towels on sale for $8.95!

Heading out for dinner on Easter day or getting dressed up for church? Check out the cute little ties available at Adorable Affordable, I love the little robot one and only $10! The Peter Rabbit range can also be picked up from Adorable Affordable, the booties are $19.95, the plate is $5.95 and the cot sheet set is on sale for $25.00.

Underneath the ties is 'Flynn' the floppy rabbit rattle by Bebe, you can pick him up for $23 from My Wild Child, you can even pick up the matching romper and bunny rug to match!

Second from the top at the far right side is embroidery done by Bibby Bee Embroidery, they have a whole range of Easter designs they you can put on minky to make into MCN's or blankees for bub. I love this one as it says 'some bunny loves me'.

Last one on the bottom right is the Rabbit Set by Prada. Beautiful, bright colours its the last one in stock at Three Cheeky Monkeys and comes in a size 9 months for half price at $41.06.

There is way more choice in clothing for girls plus I had to narrow down the hair accessories!

Top left is the gorgeous EIEIO pink bunny set by Mudpie. It consists of an A-line top with ruffled hem and matching leggings. It only comes in size 0-6 months and you can pick it up for $39.95 from The Bees Knees Kids.

Second from the left in the top row is a pink rabbit pillow that you can find at Tiffany's Place. The ears, feet and tail are padded then you just put a pillow in and you have a cute, snuggly rabbit! $15 each and I think on her FB page I saw there is only 1 left!

Third across the top is the girls Bebe rabbit, she is 'Daphne' in the blossom print. $23 each from My Wild Child you can pick up the whole matching range in bib, bunny rug, booties and 4 types of bodysuits! It is a beautiful, girly print.

Top right is one I have been eyeing off for quite sometime (plus plenty of others!). You can order this one in up to a size 7 from Mezzies Prezzies for $22. It would look fabulous with a pettiskirt!

Right in the middle is the funkiest bunny romper I have ever seen! Made by Two Belles and called 'Don't mess with me' it oozes style and attitude! Nice and soft for those that will mostly sleep Easter away grab it now from A Little Bit of Cheek for $49.95 and goes up to a size 1.

Bottom left is probably the outfit for those of us stuck in Summer in Perth. LolaMoolu make this singlet and bloomer set for $35. I love the pink and cream fabric with the chocolate colour, very Eastery!

Second from the left down the bottom are Bunny Hair bands from a business I haven't mentioned before. So many of my favourites are doing hair accessories for Easter but need to show some other great stores. You can grab a pair in your favourite colour from Mini Moo for $4.00. Comes in the colours hot pink, blue, pale pink, red & white.

Third across the bottom is the super cute personalised pillow from Tiges and Weince. It already comes stuffed and you just need to let them know the name you want on it at the checkout, $29.00. There is also a boys design available.

And lastly on the bottom right is just what every little bunny girl needs, OOBI Bunny ears! There are three designs available in Green Apple with Lilac Spot, Red Dot with Hearts and probably my favourite Pink Stripe with Pink Flowers. Pick them up for $12.95 each at Shophouse.  

So it's Easter, did you remember to leave a carrot out for the Easter Bunny? What about a key for him to get in and hide the goodies? Check out Noahs Art Nursery for the Bunny key (left, 2nd from the bottom) to use each year for the Easter bunny to come in. Price is $10.

How about something fabulous to collect the goodies with? Grab a bag from Lolamoolu (top left) for the girls at $25 each or Itch Easter bags (middle right) in unisex designs for $24.95 from Cradle Rock.

Also from Cradle rock is the awesome money boxes (top right) which come in a bright pink or white aswell. 20cm tall you can pick one up for $34.95.

Middle left is the perfect Easter gift to the littlest ones in your life, bunny soap! Made of goats milk and scented with Anjou Pear Blossom you can get them direct from the USA for $6.75 from KcSoapsNMore.

Something that looks like eggs but is so much more fun are these felted egg shakers (bottom right) from MollyDagMade. $7.50 each they come in a wide range of colours. I picked up 2 for my girls when I saw them at a market and they are beautiful. Bright colours and covered in merino wool they will be a lasting Easter favourite.

Lastly, bottom left are ribbon wands from Precious Princess Pieces. $7.95 each there is sure to be a colour to match outfits or personalities, little boys would have just as much fun as girls swirling these around and jingling the bell.

What does the Easter Bunny need to creep around and hide eggs? Bunny slippers of course! (top left) $19.99 from City Beach they look nice and cosy for the cooler weather.

Planning a big lunch/dinner party for the big day? Head to Print a Party to grab the printable sheet and you could have a delish looking table like the one pictured top right. At only $10 it will make for a memorable meal.

And finally after the kids have gone to bed its time for some adult treats. A rocky road Easter egg  from Harrys Rocky Road would go down a treat (bottom left) and a Creme Egg cupcake from Kustom Cupcakes would do me just fine too! (bottom right)

I hope I have given you some ideas for your Easter or just some lovely things to look at but whatever you do have a fun day, don't think about diets and stay safe.
