“Our daughter June turned three recently and since she has been obsessed with puppies for a very long time we had to throw her a Best in Show Puppy Party. The invitation with vintage graphics of a little girl having tea with her puppy were the perfect inspiration. June even had her own tea party with her puppy cousin Clover to mimic the invitation. Décor included red and white stripes, blue wrapping paper as table runners and pops of fresh wheat grass. June’s friends started the party by choosing their own set of puppy ears to wear. Then they headed for an obstacle course including frisbee, fetch and tunnels.
After the vet they were off to the Puppy Parlor for a quick comb, hair bows and a new blanket. All the little puppies ate their lunch of hot dogs, pupcorn, fruit and veggies from their own dog bowl. They also enjoyed a dessert buffet of graham cracker dog bones, Jello water bowls, bow-wownies, puppy chow, bark, paw print chocolate pops and blue raspberry pupcakes. Birthday girl June enjoyed her own chocolate malt birthday cake served in a dog bowl.”
I love finding parties with a fun, unique theme and this from Kenna at is exactly that – unique and original! To celebrate her daughter’s 2nd birthday Kenna chose a Puppy Parlor theme because her daughter immediately fell in love with their newest member of the family – a new puppy! Kenna started collecting puppy items in February when she noticed a lot of Valentine’s Day things had cute girlie puppies on them.
It’s been a bit hectic at the past couple of weeks. The suburban rescue took in 35 dogs when the Puppy Parlor – a pet store and puppy mill – closed its doors on February 24 after being the focus of protests for well over a year. As the organization works to get the dogs ready for adoption, they are also working on raising funds to help pay for the veterinary care incurred by the rescue.
