    Hosting the perfect dog party is easy with a little planning and a few key decorations. Follow these party decoration tips to style an impressive Chevron Boy Bruffday puppy shower or dog birthday party.

     
    Chevron Boy Bruffday Dog Party Theme & Decoration Ideas #PoochPawty

    1. Do It Yourself Craft Tags // You are definitely going to have one DIY party decoration so be sure to order custom craft tags to dress it up and make it perfectly themed. These versatile tags will look great on favor bags or at the candy buffet tied around pretty containers.

    2. Custom Candy Boxes // Every party needs to have some way for guests to enjoy the delicious snacks you made. Pre-fill these treat boxes with puppy chow or pup corn, or leave in them at the candy buffet and let guests choose what they want to put in them.

    3. Cupcake Pick and Wrapper // Cupcakes are one of the easiest treats to offer to human guests at your dog party. You can have them pre-made by your local baker, find them at a grocery store or make them yourself - it doesn't get any better! Wherever you choose to get your sweet treat from, be sure to dress it up with cupcake decorations for a delicious display your guests will love.

    4. Blue Sixlets Candy // Blue Sixlets party candy is a fun way to add a little something extra to your buffet table. The fun round candies are carob chocolate and coated in a hard candy shell. They will look pawsome in all of your clear jars and containers. And, because they are carob, you don't have to worry if one of the pooches accidentally nabs one (just be sure to keep it out of reach so they don't get into them on purpose).

    2. Pooch Bow Tie // You absolutely need one special item for your guest of honor and a Chevron Boy Bruffday bow tie is the perfect accessory for your pooch. Order just one to make your pup the center of attention or get numerous ones for all of your party guests. Human friends love to wear them as bow head bands or on their own neck. This is party neckware that is a guaranteed hit.

    2. Custom Banner // If you need to choose only a few of our party foundations, a custom banner is the absolute must. It is a large size to make an impressive statement and has room for personalized text to make sure every guest know just where the party is at. This is the easiest party decoration to use and will certainly have a dramatic impact on your party space.

    Now that you have your party foundations, it is time to celebrate your pooch and

    That little fuzzy face is there day in and day out - ready to greet you and make any bad day better. I am sure you have a similar look waiting for you when you get home from a long day - or even just home from a trip to the mail box!

    My furbaby, Rowlf, wandered into my life 11 years ago. He was a little fluffy ball full of energy who How Dogs are Our Best Friends #PoochPawtyloved the cats, ran in circles and looked at me for constant approval - with big eyes and panting tongue. I was one of the lucky ones who got to take my pup to work and he followed me around every day. This created a sort of co-dependent relationship for both of us but I am ok with that.

    From the beginning, my dear Hubbs tried to get this stubborn little guy to listen to him but it never worked. He only has - well, HAD - ears for me. That is, until a special little human found his way into our home. Then things changed. For a while, I shared my lap with my first 'child' and with my new baby. Then, the two started adventuring. Rowlf would always check back with me, running back and forth between us two, trying to decide who was more entertaining.

    How Dogs Became our Best Friends #PoochPawtyBut NOW - these two are in cahoots! If one doesn't think of it, the other will. From treat sneaking to snuggling, they have a special bond that fills my heart with joy. Rowlf is always ready to go for a run while The Little rides his bike. They speak the same language when it comes to snack frequency and bedtime snuggles are never far away. After making sure his Little is fast asleep, he will make his way to the foot of my bed for the full nights sleep, but I am sure that will end soon as their bond grows.

    Rowlf is a special part of our family and he deserves to be celebrated for all the joy he brings to us. Check out these dog party supplies so you can honor your pup as well. Then read the info graphic below - Dogs haven't always been man's best friend but I am sure glad that changed!

    Be sure to tell us about your furbaby and the special bond you have below in the comments.

    We all want to give our pups the very best - and sometimes that means doing it yourself so you are in control of the ingredients or materials. BUT, doing it can also be time consuming and take time away from actually enjoying the process and the time you get to spend with your pooch. We have collected our homemade dog treat recipes that are both healthy and easy {and fun} to make. Most of the ingredients can even be found in your pantry without a trip to the store!

    You don't want your dog party to be a barking bore with the same dog party supplies you can find everywhere BUT you also don't want to spend your entire weekend crafting - That's precious dog park time and we know you will never give that up!

    Creating a pawsome dog party doesn't have to be a ton of work and now it has gotten even easier. These shaped cut outs will help you create all the do it yourself party favors you can imagine!
    Do It Youself Dog Party Favors: Shaped Cut Outs #PoochPawty

    Shaped paper cut outs come in three designs, 12 large puppy cut outs, 6 medium paw cut outs and 6 medium bone cut outs, all perfectly coordinated with the Puppy Girl dog party theme.

    Party Craft ONE // Punch two holes in the center of a bone-shaped cut out. Thread with ribbon and tie around a doggie treat bag for a fun party favor.

    Party Craft TWO // Cut a length of thin ribbon and attach a gold brad to the center. Punch two holes just beneath the puppy's chin and thread the ribbon though so the brad is in the middle-front, like a dog tag. Tie around a rawhide or bone treat.

    Party Craft THREE // Attach any of the paper cut outs to a toothpick and insert into your cupcake treats - both puppy cakes or human cupcakes.

    Party Craft FOUR // Wrap your party utensils in a fun napkin and tie off with a ribbon that has been threaded through a hole in one of the paper cut outs for a super fun napkin ring!

    **All holes were punched with a small, 1/8 inch hole punch, like this one.

    Bringing home a new puppy is always exciting. Those soft puppy kisses are the absolute sweetest!! With all of the fun a little dog brings - like the first time he tries to take off running on the hardwood floor - it is easy to forget a few essentials you will need after you get home. I know when I brought my adorable little fuzz ball home, I had a bag of food, a collar and every.single.toy in the store!

    It wasn't until a few days later I found myself running back to the store for just one more thing - A kennel. Then one more thing - A baby gate. Then one more thing...and so on, and so on. Grant it, no expense was spared for this new fur baby that I carried on our walks and I let share my pillow at night, but if I would have had this easy checklist at the start, I would have been able to prepare for his homecoming. Click on the image for the download, then print and go shopping before your new puppy comes home!
