Pet Friendly TAILgate Party + Make Your Own Hot Dog Buffet

Looking to kick up your creative game at the next tailgate party? Good news: you’re in the right place!

From boatloads of game day inspired printables to tips for setting up a make-your-own hot dog buffet that looks as good as it tastes, this post is packed with lots of FREE goodies and easy-to-recreate ideas for both sports fans and pet parents alike. Why pet parents, you ask? Well… we all know that it’s way more fun to tailgate with friends, so of course that includes your BEST friends of the 4-legged variety too, right?! I know that Layla definitely thinks so:

Pet Friendly TAILgate Party + Make Your Own Hot Dog Buffet

As a longtime pet parent myself, and a big animal lover in general, I was thrilled to collaborate with Petco – whose name also happens to grace our awesome downtown ballpark here in San Diego – on this Playful and Pet-Friendly TAILgate Party Theme. Whether you utilize just 1 or 2 quick ideas from this post or recreate something similar from start to finish, I hope it’s helpful in making your next game day get-together feel like even more of a WIN. ;)

And with 4th of July celebrations just around the corner, you might find the red, white, and blue color palette of the sporty style printables especially handy right now too!

Chic Parisian Le Jardin Inspired Tablescape

We may have a case of “who wore it better” on our hands… and I’m referring to the backdrop vs. centerpieces of gorgeous flowers of course! Michelle Garibay Events teamed up with Growing Grace Floral Design for a playful “Kate Spade bride” style tablescape that works for the wedding or the bridal shower. Their Chic Parisian “Le Jardin” Inspired Tablescape is glowing… and not just from the candles! ;) From the bold black & white linen to the ultra creative (and mood setting) floral backdrop, catch all the glamorous details and a fun Q&A session with Michelle below.

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

Groovy & HIP Backyard Bash {60th Birthday!}

Peace, Love, and BIRTHDAY Cake! For Cathleen’s 60th birthday, friends and family cozied up in piles of pretty pillows – and amidst beautiful, boho chic decor – for a Groovy & HIP Backyard Bash to celebrate her special milestone… 60′s style! From lace tambourines to floral party crowns and a wild child edible flower cake, Katie Webb and team from Intertwined Events definitely dreamed up a fabulous evening full of flower power FUN. I especially love that all the party guests (who look like they’re having an absolute blast, BTW!) arrived dressed in 60′s inspired, “hippie bohemian” outfits to celebrate in style for what surely was… the party of the decade. ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

– Ripped fabric curtains, assorted colorful pillows, and an eclectic mix of linens & textiles
– Groovy edible flower birthday cake from Sweet & Saucy
– “All You Need Is Love” napkins + Live Lavender Love” & “Tie Dyed” cocktails
– Flower crowns, lace tambourines & bohemian chic attire (think crochet dresses & fringe vests)
– Hippie inspired props & accents: dream catchers, peace signs, colorful daisies, & more!

It’s often WAY easier to design a party with a theme to help develop creative ideas, activities, and even plan the food. That’s why I’m giving Jenny Raulli of Bloom Designs Online a *virtual* high five today! Her teenage daughter requested a “themeless” party, and she still managed to completely transform her backyard for the occasion. Audrey’s Sweet […]
