Vera’s Doggie Birthday Party Part 2

(See part one here)

And now for… the details of Vera’s doggie birthday party!

We decorated with some of Vera’s stuffed doggies.

I made tent signs for all of the food using paint swatches.  We also decorated with some dog toys I bought for less than $1 each.

We had a frozen yogurt bar featuring homemade vanilla and homemade chocolate frozen yogurt.  We had an array of toppings!

I covered an old coffee canister with scrapbooking paper and baker’s twine to make a spoon holder.

The napkins were my color inspiration for the whole party.

A basket full of doggies served as the centerpiece.

My mom and I made a birthday banner to hang on the door.  It is made from scrapbooking paper, alphabet stickers, baker’s twine, and mini clothespins.

 We had orange pineapple punch to drink.

 Other yummy foods included doggie-shaped cookies and delicious brownies.

Most of the table linens and dishes are just ones I have had for a while.

Vera’s birthday yogurt. :)

 My yogurt and punch (I thought it would be fun to throw some fruit in my punch… it was great!)

Vera got a few doggie birthday cards.


I think we had a successful party!  Vera seemed to enjoy herself (except for blowing out her candles… that seemed to alarm her a bit…) and we had a great time with all of our family members who came!
