There’s nothing like going way over the top for a party your one-year-old doesn’t even appreciate! I love parties and couldn’t help myself.
By one-year-old, Big G had several words. Among them – go and dog. The rest is history.
Take a look at our super cute birthday boy and his super cute “Go Dog, Go” birthday party!
Loved the birthday board in the middle – such a fun way to remember Baby G’s milestones. That courtesy of MadJax Design & Print.
We had so much fun bringing the pages of “Go Dog, Go!” to life. Big J looked to the left at the water with the picture and exclaimed, “I know water is going to go in here!” It was so sweet. He had a blast!
Treats are tricky at a one-year-old’s party because you have to find foods the birthday boy and his friends can eat.
The hot dogs aren’t age appropriate, but let’s face it – you can’t have a dog party without dogs!
The little ones loved the jello and I loved the red dog on blue tree/blue dog on red tree theme!
What? You thought easy couldn’t be simply adorable. This is how we do bread, cheese and Goldfish.
Cake & Dessert Table
I got a lot of my inspiration for this party from Spaceships and Laserbeams, specifically this part of the party! Thank you to Chantelle over there for her awesome tree and Ferris wheel idea!
This is the scene near the end of the book when they go to the top of the tree to find a big party, a big dog party. They’re excited. There’s cake. They understand the value in that, more than my new one-year-old did.
I re-created a little piece of New York City in the dog world with some black and white cookies, suitable for the “black and white dogs” page.
“Do You Like My Hat?” Hat Making StationPhoto Prop Car & Decorations
This was THE best. All of the kids looked so cute in the ridiculously small window. We still have it around and it’s been driven all around our house at this point. Inspiration from Vicky Barone’s adorable prop!
My fav.or.ite. part of first birthdays! Loved the cute birthday photo clips. Those, the “I Am One” and “Happy Birthday” sign all came from Emerald City Paperie. Check out their Etsy shop here.
This wreath was so easy (and it’s so adorable) – a tutorial is coming..
Another tutorial coming for this adorable photo clip. Again, got the tip for the car from Spaceships and Laserbeams.
And finally, a couple pictures of some homemade decorations I made with photo copies from the book. What a blast!
