Fiesta Friday - Dog Gone It!

Fancy Flours dog cookiesThe little one and I just read the cutest book about Beatrice who is unwillingly taken to the library with her brother who has to do a book report; Beatrice Doesn't Want To by Laura Numeroff, she of If You Give A Mouse A Cookie fame. We loved the story, we are such dog people. And with an email from Fancy Flours sitting in my inbox about their fabulous doggie cookie cutters, I had to do a post.

I'm also dedicating this post to Smokey, my friend's dear family pet who passed away last weekend...pouring a little water out for you homie!

Mix Mingle Glow dog partyI never get tired of Mix Mingle Glow's 'Dog Party With A Purpose'; several animal shelters allowed homeless pups to join the celebration in hopes of a future adoption and all of the decor elements like the dog food, went to back to the shelters.

Instead of presents, consider asking for donations to a local animal shelter. Get a list of needs from the shelter and include in your invite. If you receive a thank you note from the shelter, include a copy of it in your thank you notes.

Arg!!! Aren't these puppy pops from Bakerella just the awesomest? She's graciously shares the tutorial. This puppy has a bite much greater than it's bark; layers of blondie and brownie never looked so good. Adorable puppy cupcakes from the queen of cupcakes herself that would be a fun project for guests to make.

pink puppy partyspray painted dog treatsA lovely pink dog party from LuLu & Co. Do you see the dog biscuits hanging from the tissue pom flowers? Love it! Speaking of biscuits, a few coats of spray paint can turn them into table confetti, a la our Monster Mash party. Ours are silver but feel free to match your decor and use them as vase filler, place cards, whatever!
