Party Recap


Party Highlights

  • Best Dressed

    Why, Claire of course! Somehow my picture-taker didn't get a picture of her Dachshund shirt with rainbow shorts.

  • Desserts

    Rainbow cake, chocolate dog/cat cupcakes, Chex Puppy chow (aka Muddy Buddies), m&m's, rainbow twizzlers, rainbow goldfish, rainbow coated oreos

  • Activities / Games

    Mainly just let the kids have fun on our new/huge playset/sandbox. Also had watercolors and printed pictures of puppies, kittens and rainbows for them to color.

  • Budget

    I have no idea. I made things over the course of a couple months. Over $100 I am sure.

  • Party Favors

    $1 sand bucket/shovel from Target with shredded multi-color paper, stuffed puppy or kitten, stickers and goody bags to fill up.

  • Best Moment

    There were many :) I loved the moment I cut into the cake and people literally OOHED and AAHHHEED at the bright colors. They thought it was just a plain ol' cake!
