A Puppy Themed Party

A Puppy-Themed Party for Nana!

Nana and Papa (my in-laws) got a new puppy this summer...

So...why not have a puppy themed birthday breakfast party?!  Why not?
I always love a good theme!

Decorations started with my son's (puppy) artwork...

and lots of my daughter's stuffed (puppy) animals sitting out.

The kids made 'puppy' balloon animals!
(They made SO many puppy balloon animals... that we decided to string them up over the dessert table.)

There were lots of puppy-themed treats!

Dollar Store dog dishes held Scooby Snacks.
(Scooby Snacks are dog bone shaped graham crackers that are found at the grocery store.)
I dipped one end into dark chocolate because...well, just because I LOVE chocolate and they needed a little something!

The Puppy Chow was...

Cocoa Puffs cereal...of course! 

The nuggets were chocolate dipped marshmallows...BUT...

These were not your ordinary marshmallows...
These are Coconut Marshmallows and
Caramel and Vanilla Marshmallows!
(Have you seen them in the stores? They're fabulous!)


Doo-Doo was...

Chocolate covered peanut clusters!
I labeled my metal scoops...Pooper Scoopers (hee hee).

Puppy Chews were fruit chew candies.

And my 'very talented' sister-in-law created the Puppy Cake!
Isn't it adorable?  The raspberry buttercream frosting was to die for!
Check out her many cake creations here:

On the breakfast table was a table runner cut from paw print wrapping paper found at the Dollar Store.
Dog dishes full of fruit decorated the table along with...

the 'Puppy Pop' place markers!

For breakfast we ate egg casserole,coffee cake and 'Puppy' waffles!

Oh, what a party!
Happy Birthday Nana!
(Nana and her grand kids!)
