I’m so excited to share Tyler’s 4th birthday party with you today! It was our favorite party so far. This year Tyler was really excited beforehand and we were able to have some fun activities and games.
Tyler has really been into puppies for about a year now. We have a toy poodle, and although he’s a smaller dog, they are the best of friends. And Tyler loves acting like a puppy and watching Paw Patrol. So the theme was easy to decide on. He still loves red, so we had to have another party with red in it, although I put a lot of blue in the party this time.
We decided on going with all chocolate for this party. When we were looking for what cake to get, we decided on a petal cake, but making it chocolate made it more boyish and fit in with the puppy theme. We had the cake custom made from our local Super Target and it was delicious! Our guests were asking where we got it. (Everyone knows I didn’t make it lol).
We cut a 4 out of striped blue cardstock and a slightly bigger one out of gold glitter cardstock to add as a topper. This was the first time we hired a photographer for the party. John from Country Life Photography captured all the details of the party for us and he did a wonderful job!
We made the cake pops ourselves. Getting 2 cake pop presses made it much easier to make the cake pops a smoother round shape and the same size. We put them on small cupcake liners and cut out little blue and red striped bones to decorate the sticks with. Our super cute and yummy custom cookies were made by The Sweet Tooth Cakery in Tampa.
We filled french square plastic bottles with blue gatorade and used vinyl decal puppies on the front of the bottles in gold. Tying on some striped baking twine and paper straws incorporated in red.
Our adoption table was set up with puppies to adopt, gingham leashes, an Adopt a puppy sign, adoption certificates, and party favor bags. We also printed the puppy banner in alternating blue, gray and red colors for the front of the table.
We wanted something above the table, tying in the adoption center theme. So we decided on making a sort of “logo” for the adoption center. We made vinyl decals of a puppy silhouette and circles in black. Then added red vinyl decal letters to the side saying “Adoption Center.”
The adoption center was a big hit! We also had a photo booth wall that guests enjoyed, and a few games. Make sure to come back tomorrow, we will be sharing all the details of the games and activities with you then!
