It's a Pawty! Puppy Party First Birthday (Part 1)

Puppy Dog Themed Birthday Party Ideas for Kids

I'm BACK!! Well, only for a brief moment. Life is still as busy as a cat on a hot tin roof...but more on that in a moment. Today I'm dropping by to share with you all the birthday party we threw for Baby B a few weekends ago. Yes, can you believe he's already ONE?! Fastest year of my life! B loves terrorizing playing with our doxies so it only seem natural that we throw him a dog themed party, specifically a wiener dog one.

Puppy Dog Birthday Party Ideas

I started planning this party months in advance, which was a good thing BOTH for me AND the lives of my loved ones. Not only am I a tad bit obsessed when it comes to party details (too bad I can't be this way with exercising!) but I also like to make and create as many things as I can myself.
I totally worked my Silhouette Cameo like a dog (pun intended) for this party! I had so much fun creating all of the paper goodies like the invites, birthday banner, food tents, and tags.

Dog themed party food labels

We had the party at our home and rented out a tent for the day. 
The dessert table was one of my favorite things to work on. The tissue garland was found at Target and ended up being the inspiration for the party's color theme. 
Who am I kidding? Do you really think I would do anything with out using the color blue? #ihaveissues
Outside of that I managed to find a lot of other party goodies at the Dollar Store and Party City.
 A full source list will be made available at the end of my ramblings.
 (PS. Let's just clarify the above pic was taken before the "pupcakes" arrived in case you were wondering if I ate them all).

All of the food was labeled with dog-themed names. For the dessert table we had blueberry flavored "pupcorn", vanilla"pupcakes", puppy chow, and dog biscuits (Scooby snacks).

One the main food table I set up a little hot dog bar along with some more themed food such as "dog house salad",  "good boy baked beans", "pawtato salad", and "pawtato chips".

Do you know how excited I was when I stumbled upon these adorable-perfectly-appropriately-party-color-hot dog holders?! I practically did the running man right there in the middle of the store aisle.

And since my guests only deserve the best , we had them wash down their food with some "toilet water".
50/50 Hawaiian Blue Punch and Sprite. It was a hit with the kiddos!

The kids also got to eat off of these cute doggie plates I found at the Dollar Store.
Double bonus was they served as favors too!

I still have some more fun "pawty" stuff to share so make sure to drop by again soon.

In other news, last we spoke here on the blog I had mentioned that we had put our house on the market?
Well, in case you don't follow DN on Instagram or Facebook we sold it! AND we're already in our new home! That's right the buyers gave us 3 weeks before they kicked us to the curb. So that along with throwing this party seven days before the move explains my absence. My life is still cuckoo crazy so it will be awhile before I am back blogging on a regular basis and the shop will remain closed until further notice.
Thank you though to all of you who still drop by to check in on me (yes, I'm still alive) and to those of you who still drop by the blog (MMMM....big, wet granny kiss!)
