So I know everyone has been dying to see how the puppy party turned out, right?
Since it's taken so much of my time and energy lately :)
And now I can breathe for a couple of days until finals hit.
So without further ado, here are some glimpses into my little man turning three!
No little puppy can be without a doghouse! Me and my friend Amanda spent an afternoon making this from a cardboard box- super easy and fun! Turned out so much more adorable than I had hoped!
We used chalkboard paint on the 'fido' sign so we could change it up when we wanted.
We had to be creative about a big hole on the side of the box, so we made it into a square and wrote 'treat's all around it. Now he can get delivered yummy dog snacks!
Banner and dog collar wreaths with 3's on them.
Yummy puppy cupcakes- some with pawprints and others with scooby dog bones.
My mom made these yummy chocolate suckers- super easy!
All the food was in some sort of dog bowl and we tried to keep it doggy-related.
Scooby snacks- dog bones
Candy Dog bones
Orange Cheese Puffs- balls
Pretzel sticks- sticks
and of course- a puppy cake!
This was all little man was really looking forward to... he just 'needed' cake. :)
We stuck capri sun drinks and water bottles in a big silver tub we had.
I put these in the middle of the tables we set out to eat on- just put doggy related things in them.
I also made some bows out of dog ribbon and attached them around the vases.
I used- tennis balls, sticks from the yard and some leftover bone cookie cutters from the favors.
Speaking of favors... they went from a mess of this:
I LOVE how these turned out! So cute!
I wrapped the coloring books into a single sheet of newspaper, rolled it up and secured with a piece of jute.
Then I tied a bone cookie cutter from hobby lobby into it and tied a little note to say thanks for coming:
I'm so happy with how it turned out! I think little man had a good time too... his favorite part by far was his puppy cake...
He keeps asking where his birthday is... he doesn't like it being over :)
