Beatrix Potter Invitations

To make homemade Beatrix Potter Party Invitations, on a blank card, draw on the cover a simple sketch of your best Peter Rabbit(with black ink) and if possible color in with water colors paints. Write something suitable like, “You are corduroy invited to a garden party tea”. Inside the invitation hand write the party information.



Beatrix Potter Party Decorations

  • Use the color theme use all colors in nature
  • If possible host the party in your garden. It will be unique and something that Beatrix Potter herself you like to attend.
  • Have a nice blanket for your tea time/picnic
  • Have lots of flowers and potted plants
  • Hang twinkle lights
  • Hurricane lanterns filled with eggs
  • Hang pictures from the Beatrix Potter books (you can get posters) If the party is outside they can be hung on a fence
  • Use Beatrix Potter tea cups and accessories for snacks and drinks


Beatrix Potter Party Games and
Beatrix Potter Birthday Activities

  • Beatrix’s Bonnet have a selection of sun hats and decorate them with flowers. This will honor Beatrix Potter’s style and the guests can wear them as their party hats.
  • Mr. MacGregor’s Vegetable Patch a refreshing game of tag – have the guests running with a basket to collect plastic vegetables at the same time have an older child or adult dress as Mr. MacGregor. If they are caught they loose all their vegetables and have to start the race again. Whoever has the most vegetables wins.
  • Jemima Puddle Ducks’s Egg Race have a scavenger hunt to find Easter eggs. Place a sticker on each child’s hand representing the color of egg that they are aloud to collect. This way all the guests have a chance to find the same number of eggs.
  • Peter’s Agility Course For example: run through zig zag cones, jump rope three times, crawl through three hula hoops, run around a tire, hop over a bench, do a series of log rolls, and finish by hoping into a hula hoop (watering can) and sit down when finished.
  • Old Fashion Potato Sack Race I realize that you can buy fun colored potato sack race bags, but for this party I would try to find old fashion burlap bags for the race. The combo of the hats and the bags would make for an amazing photo.
  • The Meadow the guests would love to go on a short nature walk through a meadow, pick some wild flowers and then walk to a pond to see a frog, fish, and listen to the crickets.
  • Water Painting make a bookmark or small painting using black felt tip pens and water colors.
  • Pin the Jacket on Peter play like pin the tail on the donkey
  • Read Aloud a Beatrix Potter Story
  • Watch a Movie
  1. Beatrix Potter DVD Miss Potter a truly moving picture
  2. Tale of Peter Rabbit Movie – with Carol Burnett
  3. Complete Beatrix Potter Collection
