A puppy party theme is a perfect party for a combined boy/girl party. Depending on the ages of your child depends a lot on if they want to invite the opposite sex to their birthday party. What I found is in their early years they want all their friends invited. Late elementary school years they decide they don’t want the opposite sex at their birthday party; then in the middle school/high school years they decide they want them back again : ) Of course, every child is different. This is a great theme for a first birthday “paw”ty. Check into hiring an agency that will bring puppies to your party (kind of like a petting zoo but with puppies). Most children adore puppies – you’ll be sure to hear lots of oohhs and aahhs!
Puppy Party Table Decor: I purchased stainless dog bowls from the dollar store perfect for serving ice cream and cake! Dog bone cups are a must for a puppy party; when will you ever get to use bone cups at a party?
Dog Invitations are very important – they set the mood for a party! We all know that first impressions can make or break you – the same goes with an invitation. It’s the first thing someone sees when invited to a party, so it’s important to make the invitations as nice as possible. I made this invitation at home with striped card stock purchased at Kinko/Fed Ex. Use a word program to insert puppy dog clip art onto a blank document. Type the wording and party details into the text box above the graphic and print.
Face painting is always fun for little kids.
Whimsy-girl constructed a dog house out of a cardboard box – so cute with the roof shingles!
She also passed out sugar cookies (dog bone shaped) for the adult guests. More photos here.
This Fire Hydrant would make a great table decor item for a dog party.
