Daphne and Charlie’s Puppy Party!

Daphne and Charlie’s Puppy Birthday Party!

This is not my typical recipe post, but I wanted to share the puppy party I did for my kids on their joint 3rd and 5th birthday party. 🙂

Pin the tail on the puppy! – I found the picture of the dog here, and I just free-hand drew it onto a large piece of poster board.  I cut some tails out of black construction paper, put a piece of double stick tape on the back, and bibbity-bobbity-boo! An almost free game!

Puppy Balloons! –  For these, I just drew some eyeballs on white paper with a black sharpie, cut ears out of construction paper as well, blew up balloons, and drew faces on with a sharpie.  So easy! Then I hung them upside down from the ceiling.  I found the super cute paw print balloons at my local Party Store.  They also carry them at Hobby Lobby.

Adopt a Puppy Party Favors – Instead of a goody bag filled with junk, this year, I ordered some Aurora Plush Puppies in a bunch of different varieties from Amazon.  I stuck them in a cardboard box that said “Adopt a Puppy!”  The kids LOVED this.  I don’t think any of them missed the goody bag.

Puppy Ear Headbands – I made these with cardstock.  First, I cut long strips and taped them with double sided tape into little bands.  Then, I attached two puppy ears (hand drawn and cut) onto the sides.  This was a time consuming task because I had to make 17.  My brother in law suggested I could have made one, scanned it, and then printed it.  Hindsight is always 20/20!

I ordered their cakes from a bakery. (I just don’t have the patience for cake decorating- I only make non-decorated cakes)  I just asked them to do colored paw prints around the edges, and then I placed a couple of 101 Dalmatians figurines from the Disney Store on each one.

We also bought some pipe cleaners and beads so the kids could make their own collars for the puppies.  Also a hit.

If you’re planning a puppy party of your own, I hope these ideas help you!  This was a super fun party, and I had fun doing it.
