Easton’s First Birthday – Puppy Pawty

I had so much fun planning and decorating Easton’s puppy paw-ty. He loves dogs, so I thought this theme was super cute for a boy. Snips & snails & puppy dog tails, right!?

Of course I had to throw in some themed food – served in dog bowls. The puppy suckers (Oriental Trading) were a hit – I also loved the sign on the bathroom door ;)

One of my favorite decorations were the dog face balloons. A little construction paper and a permanent marker can turn any balloon into the cutest puppy decoration! For favors, the girls helped me paint paw prints on white frisbees.

We spent all morning setting up everything outside on the patio where we planned for the party to take place. Mother Nature reminded us not to plan TOO far ahead….about an hour before the party began, the heavens opened up and gave us a torrential downpour.

We spent the next hour moving the entire party inside our house. It was crazy & loud, but turned out fine – the birthday boy had a great time and that’s all that matters. Wonderful memories made – no matter where you are :)

Yes my house was a mess afterwards, but messes can be cleaned – it reminds me of a quote my mom used to have in our house growing up…”Excuse the mess, the children are making memories.”

I made everything except the Happy Birthday banner and the highchair banner. Those beauties came from Make My Day.

I ordered some doggie ears for the kiddos, and I painted their faces like little pups. They were too cute!

The cake was made by Sugarcoated by Michelle. It was so doggone cute – of course after I took the “official” cake picture, I noticed one of the puppies stuck their little paws in the cake…I have a good guess of who that was (*cough* JULES *cough*)

I thought for sure my boy would be in Heaven eating his cake, but it turned out he did not like the crowd or attention. He was overwhelmed and just wanted to eat in peace!

He enjoyed opening his presents (with his sisters help of course) – he now has a ton of “boy toys” to play with!

Despite the weather, his party turned out great… he was exhausted by the end! He could not keep his eyes open.

I hope you had a wonderful first birthday, my man! We love you so much!
