Bunny themed 2nd birthday party at Flip Out Wandsworth

Bunny themed birthday party

If you follow me on Instagram you will know that my daughter Victoria recently turned two. Vicky is totally into bunnies (She calls them “Hasis”. Hase is German for bunny) so when I was thinking about what theme her birthday party should be it was pretty obvious that we had to go for a bunny themed birthday party.)

First I was planning of having a small party at our house but when I was thinking about how to bring the bunny party to life I thought what would be better than taking the kids to Flip Out Wandsworth – a large indoor trampoline park for adults and children that also has a dedicated jumping and soft play area for under 5s – where the kids could hop around like bunnies themselves.

We regularly go there on weekends and Vicky totally loves it, so this felt like the perfect place to have her party at. I am working full time so the fact of not having to host the party at our house, getting some help with the organisation and not having to deal with the aftermath was a massive bonus point too.

The Flip Out party packages

There are different party packages to choose from, depending on whether the party is going to be during the week or weekend, what type of food and how much jumping time you want and if you want party bags included as well.

We went for the “BRONZE PARTY PACKAGE” where you get one hour of jumping time including jump socks (this is more than enough, believe me!), a dedicated party host and 30 minutes of use of a private party room that will already be set up for you when the kids finish jumping.

In terms of food this package includes freshly made pizza, popcorn and squash as well as party plates, cups, serviettes and the clean up afterwards! I brought in our own paper plates and cups though as I wanted to stick to the bunny theme.

If you want to bring your own cake they are happy for you to do so.

The bunny cake

We had the most delicious and beautiful cake made by the lovely Alli from @cheekyveganbaker.  If you’re based in SW London/Surrey definitely go check her out, she is super talented! We are not vegan or so but in a larger group of people there is always someone who is allergic / intolerant to something, so a plant based, allergen free cake seemed like a good choice.

I had a pretty clear idea how I wanted the cake to look like and Alli was brilliant at bringing this to life. I wanted a cake with a bunny on top that looks like Vicky’s favourite bunny cuddly toy, some balloons and ombré ruffles around the cake – Alli absolutely nailed it! How adorable is this cake though? In terms of flavour, I went for carrot cake as this just works so well with the bunny theme and who doesn’t like carrot cake, right? It tasted absolutely delicious!

The bunny themed decorations

In terms of decorations I kept it fairly simple as I frankly didn’t have much time to go as much over board as I did for Vicky’s first birthday. (Click here to see a family photo from her first unicorn themed birthday party.

A two year milestones photo collage made by the lovely Winnie from @digidotstudio was a must though (see it in the first photo)! We had the same one for Vicky’s first birthday so I thought it would be super cute to get one for her second birthday as well. (Gosh, I’ll probably will be having to do this for the next 16 years now, right?)

I got some bunny paper plates (here) and the matching party bags (here , see them in the first photo) and Flip Out provided the cups.

To go with this I made bunny straws for the kids by just cutting out some bunny heads, painting on the nose and whiskers and sticking them on to the straws. Not sure if the toddlers have cared about that but it looked cute. 😊

To make for a cute table decoration piece I got plain  T, W and O papier mache letters that I painted in different colours using acrylic paint that I still had at home. I stuck a cotton wool ball on the “W” to make a bunny tail and on the “O” I glued on bunny ears that I cut out of a piece of thick paper that I had painted in the same colour as the “O”.

Last but not least I prepared a little fruit platter with bunny shaped melon pieces that I cut out with a bunny cookie cutter and mixed in some blueberries for colour.

And of course no kids party is complete without balloons.

Flip Out as a party location – the verdict

The party was a total success! The kids loved every minute  of it, we were looked after so well by our party host and I was happy that once the party was over there was no cleaning up to do, so would definitely recommend considering it for your next kids birthday party. Even though I added a personal touch to it by making it a themed party the preparation time needed was totally manageable.

      Thank you! It’s cute, right? They grow up far too quickly!

    It looks so chic and polished but still simple enough that others could likely emulate it if they wanted to!
