Thanks so much to Carmen for allowing me to feature her daughter’s 2nd birthday party! I love that she hosted a puppy-adoption party – complete with the most adorable details!
“When my daughter developed an obsession for all things puppies – I knew her 2nd birthday theme would be puppies. Her love for puppies started with Clifford, the Big Red Dog but I didn’t want a character theme for her party. I contacted Donna, and she created the perfect printables to go with the “puppy theme” party.
Each child would adopt a puppy, complete with an adoption certificate, and receive a “Doggie Bag” which contained, cocoa puffs (because puppies need to eat), puppy ears, crayons to color the placemat, and bubbles (because puppies like to chase bubbles).
The adoption certificate was an inspired by several pinterest pins.
All the children loved the placemats and were busy coloring them…it was the perfect activity while they sat down for an afternoon treat.
I worked with the cake baker Ettore’s Bakery in Sacramento, CA to create fondant puppies to match the invitation.
The cupcake toppers that also matched the invitation were from Etsy seller Apple Blossom Cupcakes.
Another surprise was a magical dog show by the Busy Bee Dogs. My daughter and all of our guests were captivated by these dogs, who were formerly homeless dogs.
Thanks so much for sharing the party with us Carmen! Everything turned out AMAZING!
