Margaret was very clear about the theme she wanted for her 3rd birthday party this year held at Wonderwild (an indoor bounce house)- CUTE DOGGIES!
With only 15 minutes to set-up the party, this is the theme, direction and end-result that her mommy and I came up with. For the children's tables, pink paper table cloths were accented with a grey polka dot gift wrap runner, cute puppy dog plates, floating dog centerpieces and 2 bunches of adorable paw print balloons. On the far wall, a sweet "Happy birthday" banner, accented with cute puppies was visible from all angles of the children's table.
For the main display area, Margaret's mommy found a bakery to match the invitation's dog and to create pale pink paw print cupcakes. For snacks, "pup-corn", "puppy chow", "mini corn dogs" and a bowl of fresh fruit were available.
And as guests departed, they were given sweet gift bags filled with candy and dog shaped crayons, adorned with a favor tag reading "Thanks for the Pup-fect Time, Margaret".
