My big boy turned 7 last month! He's been obsessed with puppies since he was born. We do have two actual, live dogs. But, he can't get enough puppy toys! His bed is so crowded with stuffed puppies, we had to get a stuffed animal hammock to hold all of them. He was a puppy for Halloween this year, and of course wanted a puppy themed birthday party. Here's what we did!
|I took several trips to the thrift store and found lots of like-new puppy Beanie Babies! Every kid got to adopt a puppy to take home, and they were all different.|
|Our "build-a-bird" station was a hit at his Angry Bird party, so this year we did "build-a-dog!" There was a container full of cardboard tubes that isn't in the photo.|

|The birthday boy in puppy heaven!! I found the huge St Bernard dog he's lying on for $4.99 at Goodwill...just beautiful like new!! The "Fur Real" dog sitting up behind him was from a garage sale...it will bark, follow commands, sit up, lie down, etc!|
|The table! I got the inflatable fire hydrant from Amazon! (scroll down for a link) The dog balloons are Air Walkers...those I got from the manufacturer since I sell balloons in my online store. They were fun for the kids to walk around!|
All in all it was a great party!! Now I'm gearing up for my little guy's Minion themed 5th birthday party, coming up in just over a week. Stay tuned for more birthday party fun! :-)
