When I realized illustrated table numbers just wouldn’t work I began my search for the figurines I had hoped to sprinkle amongst our tables. With Easter right around the corner I expected a bunny overload, not the dearth I encountered.
My one and only find was this fellow:
Cute, but significantly larger than I had hoped for. So I turned to my good old friend, the internet. After several weeks of searching, this is what I ended up with:
It was something, but lacked the consistency I had hoped for. Even after painting they just weren’t right—maybe a little too cartoony? Either way, I took a break and tried not to panic. Then one day while checking out the ”˜bee for some Bachelorette party alternatives I stumbled across this post by Mrs Hamster. After drooling over the delicious looking cake my eyes shifted to the background of the photo.

I can sort of understand the dolphin, but a fire hydrant and T-Rex? If that kind of kitsch existed in the world of bisque there had to be a bunny or two out there as well. This time I found exactly what I was looking for. Realistic looking bunnies without exaggerated or creepy expressions and at 4”-5” in height they were the perfect size for our tables.
Forming our warren ended up being a lot more difficult then I expected. I’m so glad I can finally cross this tiny albeit important task off my list and go back to stressing over everything else that has to be finalized now that we’re less than a month away!
Is there a somewhat quirky item that you’re having a hard time sourcing for your wedding? What is it?
