Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Puppy Party!

Puppy Party!

*Disclosure- This post contains affiliate links. Please see my policy tab for more information.


While her birthday isn't until the 19th, we had Allison's birthday party on Saturday. This year she decided on a puppy theme, which thrilled me because that's easy to work with!

I used my Silhouette Cameo to make a paw print banner.



We decorated mini water bottles with paw print labels.

water bottles, puppy

Mini canvas goodie bags painted with paw prints was a different twist over traditional paper bags.

puppy, goody bags

Dollar store puppies made a for a fun treat for each guest.

dog, goodie bag

Of course, you need to have puppy themed food too! Dog bone cookies....


Pretzel puppy chew sticks...

Pretzels, Chew Sticks

I bought some dog bowls at the dollar store, then decorated them with vinyl stencils I cut out with my Silhouette Cameo . We filled the bowl with the cookies, Chex Muddy Buddies, and dog bone shaped graham crackers.



Best of all, you can't have a puppy party with out a kitty pinata to beat the heck out of!



                                      Overall, the party was a huge hit with 10 year old girls :)

  13. This is so adorable! I totally thought the same thing as Terry before I began reading your post- lol! I have a friend whose daughter is the biggest animal lover I have ever met, so I'm going to pass this on to her so maybe she can utilize some of your adorable ideas for her little girl when her next birthday rolls around.

  34. This is so cute and creative. I love my dog but I don't know if I would give him a birthday party like this, he would probably tear everything up because he doesn't behave very well.
