My daughter, Payton, is our dog lover. Her interest in studying dog breeds came from reading the The Puppy Place Series by Ellen Miles. For her 9th birthday party, she wanted a puppy adoption themed party. I’m excited to share the details of this fun celebration we had.
The dog shaped cake and dog bowl (filled with Cocoa Puffs) were chocolate cakes. I made dog face cupcakes in a variety of dog breeds. The paw print cookies are sugar cookies with a Hershey’s Drop in the middle and 4 chocolate chips to make the paw.
For our guests that have dogs at home, they took a bag of Milk Bone treats home for their dog.
Once her friends arrived, we had several activities and crafts. We started with playing fetch, making a dog bed, dog collar and dog bones from clay.
We used paracord to make dog collars, complete with a metal stamped name plate.
The girls had fun playing all night with their new dogs. We enjoyed a movie night, watching Rescue Dogs Movie.
