This year, I'm already feeling more in line with the zodiac's official choice of beast. The year of the rabbit is supposed to bring calm after a volatile tiger year... I'm not too well-versed on the exact fortunes, but peace and stability sound good to me!
What I do know is that the rabbit would be an adorable motif for anyone celebrating a 2011 wedding! A quick search on etsy.com yielded some squeal-inducing results for Alice in Wonderland/white rabbit wedding shower tea parties, and rabbit jewelry for flower girls and bridesmaids.
Packages of mini rabbit cookies could be customized in any colour scheme, and with monograms and other pretty designs to make a great wedding favor or shower thank you favour.
For that matter, these would be great baby shower favours too! Babies born in the Year of the Rabbit are supposed to be blessed with sunny dispositions and good fortune.
We wish you good luck planning your Year of the Rabbit events... we'll be waiting for our phone call from Prince William and Kate Middleton... I'm sure they'll be wanting rabbit cookie wedding favours for their April 2011 wedding. One can dream :)
Happy New Year!
