I am soooooo excited to share my little boy’s PUPPY SHOP Party with you today! I have been wanting to post it since last fall. My little boy Bryson is in LOVE with all things puppies, especially polka-dot ones (dalmations). So for his 4th birthday party, it was a must that we celebrated by having his friends come to his “Puppy Shop.” It was a huge hit and Bryson was in heaven. So many details to share…so let’s get started.
(When the guests arrived, the door was covered with this “Puppy Shop” sign. My mom makes birthday signs for all of her grand kids b-days-she is amazing!)
First off, we made some very cute puppy invitations. I folded white and brown cardstock in half and just kind of cut out the shape of a dog head. Added some dark brown cardstock for ears, a brown circle for the spot, red felt for the collar, a brown pom pom for the nose and google eyes! I also added some dog tag circles and wrote the guests names on these.
Inside the invite:
“Woof! Woof! You must stop!
At Bryson’s Puppy Shop!
Lunch, Games, and Fun Galore
Bryson and I had so much fun setting up his puppy shop the night before. We had 4 stations.
Bryson’s Puppy Shop
Bryson’s Pet Supply Store
Bryson’s Dog Grooming and Pet Wash
When the boys arrived, they first stopped at the Puppy Shop where they chose their puppy and filled out their puppy adoption certificate. They loved being able to choose a name for their puppy. It was so fun to see how excited they were to choose a puppy.
The boys shopped for goods for their new puppies. They purchased:
A puppy mat (felt squares I found at Hobby Lobby-how cute were those!)
Puppy Chow (little bags of Cocoa Puffs with a bone label)
Ball for playing fetch (yellow tennis balls)
3rd Stop: The Animal Hospital
The boys were able to pretend they were vets. I had a few play doctor kits set out. (This was so cute) They each got a bottle of doggie Vitamins to take home (gummy bears).
Bryson’s friends also stayed for lunch. It was a perfect fit to serve hot dogs!
also on the menu:
-bone shaped jello jigglers
-hot dogs and chips
We also turned each boy into a dalmation! These dog headbands were super easy to make! We painted on spots and black noses! How cute are these little puppies!
We played games too!
-Cat, Cat, Dog (duck, duck, goose)
-Who stole the Puppy bone? (someone steels a dog bone from under the Puppy’s (players) chair, while he is closing his eyes and turned around, and then the Puppy guesses who stole it) They loved this game.This party was a huge success (and a lot of work)! I think we will take a break next year! Bryson carried around his puppy and supplies for days!
