Sweet “Puppy Love” Valentine’s Day Party

Puppy Love Doggy Valentine's Day Party

{Please give a warm welcome to Courtney Dial of Pizzazzerie on her first contributor post at HWTM – featuring an adorable puppy-themed party she designed herself!}***

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to let our four-legged friends in on the fun with a Puppy Love Valentine’s Party! From sweet doggie treats to a gumball machine filled with bones, the puppies had their share of goodies! The humans enjoyed some sweet treats too, as Bee’s Knees Creative made delicious sugar cookies for the occasion.

There is certainly lots of inspiration here for all sorts of Valentine’s Day parties {dog-friendly or otherwise!} so check out lots more fun pics + all the details below, from the burlap covered table to the “Puppy Love” garland

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Courtney…..

“I envisioned a low “dog height” table for this Valentine’s “Puppy Love” Party so I used a piece of wood and a few bricks to form the table. I love using burlap, so I covered the table in burlap and added red lace from the fabric store for a Valentine’s touch. Jaimee McClellan of Bushel + Peck Paper made the “dog sized” garland banner that says “Puppy Love”.

“Doggie Bags” of miniature bones were given to all the pups on their way out. The sweet dogs were already licking their chops, despite having devoured lots of treats at the party! On the table were red heart dog bowls, a centerpiece filled with miniature bones, and fun clear candy tubes from Shop Sweet Lulu filled with mini bones. I can envision these candy tubes filled with M&Ms or other candies for any type of occasion! They would make great favors.

I have an old gum-ball machine that I painted red and decorated with a pink tulle ribbon for the occasion. I have found that you can use a lot of items you already have in your own home and “update” them with some simple things like spray paint and ribbon for a fun party! I actually love the red so I plan on keeping it that color and setting it in my office {filled with “human” treats though}!

Overall, the puppies had a blast at their Valentine’s Day party – there was definitely lots of romping, wrestling, playing… and of course – eating!”
