This past summer I threw my son, Chase, a 'Doggie Pawty' for his 3rd birthday! He LOVES dogs, so he was all about it!
I hosted the party at my mom's house, as at the time I was living a few hours away and wanted all my friends to bring their kiddos over for the celebration! It was a blast! Here are the details....
Colors: Chocolate Brown, Tan & Red
Activities: I set up an "Adoption Center" with loads of doggies I bought at Toys-R-Us. They have the best stuffed dogs with tons of different breeds to choose from...anything from an Australian Shepard to an English Bulldog and everything in between! I put them in a little 'gated' area, where they waited to be adopted! The kiddos were then able to pick their puppy when their number was called...I had made little laminated paper bones with numbers and they each drew one and patiently waited to be called up to claim their pup! Each child adopted their new pet and then took them to get their 'official' adoption papers, name their pet and pick up a new collar and personalized tag!
Next stop was the Vet! Doggies were taken in for a check-up and vaccinations...OUCH! However, the super-cool band-aids helped ease the pain!
After the visit to the Vet, it was time to hit the Groomers for a little pampering! Doogies were bathed, brushed and given either beautiful bows for their hair or a red bandana to wear around their necks! I believe some dogs were sporting both!
Tennis Ball Throw
Rawhide Ring Toss
Hot-Dawg Bar, of course!!
Hot-Dawgs were served right off the grill with lots of toppings to choose of their liking!
Chips & Dips
Chocolate 2 Tiered with Bones & Bandanas from one of my favorite bakeries in my hometown, Icing On The Top.
Bags filled with Bone shaped cookies!
We asked guests in lieu of a gift for Chase, to get items such as dog food, toys, bone, etc to be donated to the local SPCA.
The pawty was so much fun! The kids were so happy to take their new doggies and the doggies at the SPCA were so grateful for their new goodies!
