It’s taken me over a month to get this post up! Life with kids is just so busy isn’t it?! In early October my littlest man turned 2! Everyone always says it but thats because its true – the time just passes so quickly. I keep thinking about how I’ve only got him home with me for another 2 years and then all my babes will be in school. Wow, okay can’t think about that anymore! Back to the party!
Our little man is obsessed with puppies right now. Everywhere we go, he points them out and screams ‘a puppy’. He only lets us watch paw patrol on the tv haha and he has to carry at least 3 puppy stuffies everywhere he goes. So naturally his party theme this year just had to be puppies!
I started with these meri meri puppy plates, cups and napkins (meri meri is one of my favourite brands for party supplies) and the party planning took off from there. I found the paw print scrapbook paper at Michaels and thought it would make a cute placemat. I had the bone shaped place cards made for a cute personalized touch for the guests and then I scattered some cute paw prints around the table.
I took the mint and white colours from the puppy cups for the balloon colours and purchased some paw print balloons on etsy for a balloon garland (I just love a balloon garland).
We ordered the puppy cake to match the plates and it turned out so well! A friend of mine made the cookies to match the theme as well.
And of course every puppy dog themed party calls for hot ‘dogs’ on the menu. Hot dogs also happen to be one of his favourite foods haha so we set up a little hot dog station for the guests too.
For the party favours we gave each babe a little puppy of their own to adopt.
The finishing touch was the adorable puppy shaped balloons I found on amazon. They have little legs and can be pulled around like you’re walking them. They were so fun for the kids. The party turned out so well and most importantly – our little guy had a blast!
