Dear Mummy, we love celebrating Easter and every year we participate in an Easter Egg Hunt. So imagine our delight at being invited to have Afternoon Tea with the REAL Easter Bunny! I couldn’t contain my excitement and was bouncing off the walls when we left home.
We visited Wyevale Garden Centre in Andover to enjoy food, crafting and an Easter Egg hunt with the Mad Hatter and the Wyevale team. The event costs £10.95 per child and you need at least 1 paying adult which costs from as little as £5.
We enjoyed our afternoon tea in the lively restaurant area which was decorated in a spring theme. Five other families were on the group booking and one large table is reserved for each family. I enjoyed colouring in my Easter activity sheet while we listened to jokes from the Mad Hatter as she poured our drinks and fetched tea. It was all undercover, so we were protected from the pesky rain and enjoyed some yummy food.
When we arrived each child was given an egg-shaped biscuit, a tube of red icing and a bowl of chocolate drops, marshmallows and sprinkles. I found it hard to resist eating my biscuit, so tucked into it before our food arrived. I was starving and it was too good to stop myself. When we booked the event we ordered our food choices and there was a lot of choice online. The options for children were a Hot Tea of either pork sausages with chips, seasonal veg, crispy chicken nuggets with chips, seasonal veg, jacket potato with beans or cheese. Or the cold tea option from their ‘Little Diggers My Picnic ‘range which included 4 items to pick from and both options came with unlimited squash. I went for good ol’ sausages while my folks opted for a classic Afternoon Tea which was presented on a high tray.
The Afternoon Tea was made up from fresh finger sandwiches, colourful cakes and scones with jam and clotted cream and fresh strawberries. My daddy destroyed the chocolate brownie! We also noticed other big folks tucking into hot meals as well like chicken, ham and leek pie with vegetables and mash or fish and chips with garden peas.
After we finished our food we were all eager to see the Easter Bunny. Testing our vocal chords was fun as we shouted out when we saw him hopping along the aisles of the garden centre (watch our little video to hear us in action). He arrived by our table pinching food and causing mischief which all the children found hilarious! I gave the Easter Bunny a high five when I met him.
After a quick photo opportunity in the restaurant we joined him on a hunt around the garden centre looking for clues. There were four signs hidden and each sign was a bunny fact, I think there should have been five but we only completed four of them. I was clasping a little sheet to collect the stickers and a paper bag to collect my chocolate eggs in. After answering each clue the Easter Bunny gave us a chocolate egg as a prize. Not only was this fun, but also educational as well. I never knew a mummy bunny was called a Doe.
The Easter Bunny exhausted us out running around after him, so we returned to finish off our drinks and choose a soft toy from his Easter basket, this was a lovely surprise as I didn’t know a toy was included in the package. I picked a cute little bunny and called her Hazel. The whole event was scheduled to run between 3pm and 4.30pm and we left on time with big smiles.
On our way out we were really impressed with the Little Diggers area at Andover, so can’t wait to return and join in with more gardening adventures. Please check out our short vlog of this Easter experience below and see for yourself. These Easter events are being held up and down the country until April 15th 2018.
We had a wonderful Easter experience, the Mad Hatter (AKA Paula) did a fantastic job and the children were thrilled. Our first experience of Andover Wyevale Garden Centre was a joy and all the staff were friendly, chatty and smiling. Overall I would totally recommend Breakfast/Tea with the Easter Bunny at Wyevale Garden Centres and they are great value for money for everything that you get.
Love Bella x
Disclosure. We were invited to come along and review tea with the Easter Bunny in return for an honest review. All thoughts and bunny hops are our own.
