Animal Themed Parties: The Puppy Party

I was sifting through old posts today and I reaized that I never posted this party!! I can’t believe it! It was SUCH a fun one to put together. When little G’s momma hired me to put something together for his first birthday, there was one requirement…that it had to do with puppies!! Little G is a puppy lover and such a little cutie pie! Here are the pics and details of this fun bash! 🙂

The cake/snack table was a fun mix of foods all tying in with our color scheme of red and aqua. Scooby snacks, apples on sticks tied with baker’s twine, cones with puppy chow (aka chex mix), pupcorn, red and blue jello…

The afternoon sun and the pergola cast some intersting shadows in these pictures. 🙂 I made hundreds of feet of paper chains in the color scheme and hung them from the slats on the pergola. It was a really fun look.

To showcase pictures of the birthday boy’s first year, I hug red dog leashes and clothespinned the pictures to them.

These puppy cake pops I had custom made to match the party theme, were definitely the hit of the day! CAn you even get over those tootsie roll ears and life saver collars??? 😉


This was the smash cake I created for the birthday boy. It was the talk of the day, and SO easy!! Chocolate cake, chocolate frosting and cocoa puffs!
