Pink Puppy Party Inspiration

Now that Valentine's is officially over, it is time for me to get crackin' on my daugther's first birthday party coming up in a week and a half!
Remember this post when I explored my ideas for different party themes? Well, I decided to not to any of those ideas. :) About a week after I made that post, she said her first word, "dog,"  and ever since then, that's been her number one obsession. She loves dogs like I've never seen an 11-month-old love dogs before, so I've decided to throw her a Pink Puppy Party!

I'm thinking I'll go with a soft baby pink, white and tan color scheme.

Here's some inspiration I found.

(felt puppies: Hair Fairy Clips, puppy cupcakes: Cake Central, stuffed puppy: Baby Gund, puppy cookies: SweetnSuch, puppy cake: Gracescakes)

Narrowing down the cake will be the hardest--I saw so many fun ideas when I was searching for inspiration. Sooooo many cute puppy cupcakes! :)

I may do paw prints every where--that'd be cute.

If I can acquire a big box, I think I'll make a big cardboard "dog house"--she'd go nuts for that.

Maybe some bone cookies?

Maybe some Chex "muddy buddies" or "dog food" or whatever you personally call that treat?

Maybe a large puppy poster?

A bunch of puppy stuffed animals?

Oh, so many ideas. :) Any ideas from you readers out there? Anyone want to make her one of those adorable felt birthday party hats? :) hee hee.

Naturally, I'll post pictures when the time comes! Until then, have a great day.


Here's where we're linking up!


  1. SO cute!!! I love that her first birthday has a theme near and dear to her heart!

    I would offer up an appliqued shirt, but I'm not sure of my puppy making abilities. I could do a dog bone with a #1. Let me know, you know my email ;)

  2. We call it puppy chow at our house. And what fun inspiration. I'm amazed at those puppy cupcakes. So cute.

  6. This is so cute! A friend of mine did a poodles in paris theme and she had here hubby draw a picture of a poodle the used pink foam and white pom poms to make tails and it was a pin the tail on the poodle game...really cute. You could do pin the tail on the pink puppy. Thanks for linking up!

  7. I made doggie cupcakes for my niece's b-day before. Here's a link if you wanted to check them out. http://aturtleslifeforme.blogspot.com/2009/03/time-to-break-out-list.html

    They were pretty easy! I cut a Junior Mint in half for the noses, softened tootsie rolls for the tongues and other little tricks! Good luck!

  8. That's awesome. The theme is great! The idea of a puppy party is awesome.


It is always fun to hear from our readers. Thanks for stopping by!
