Easy DIY Parties for Your Dog and His Friends
One of the best things about being a furry parent is being able to host a party for your pet’s birthday party! It may sound stressful at the planning stage, especially if you are the type that likes browsing for festive pet parties on social media.
Don’t be overwhelmed at this planning stage! As furry parents, we want only the best for our little buddies. Dog parties don’t have to cost that much. Read on to find some of our ideas for an easy, do-it-your-own party for your baby and his furry friends.
Backyard Furry Party
Especially if you have a big lawn, then this is going to be the party your dog will surely love! Invite every dog in the neighborhood and prepare doggy cupcakes for everyone. You can search for easy recipes online, so you don’t have to order expensive custom-made ones anywhere.
Setup the whole backyard and keep in mind the comfort of your dog and his friends. Remove dangerous objects. Setup dog mats and a proper poop area. Make sure that the exits are properly locked or guarded.
Can’t do a backyard party? Don’t worry because you can always do it inside your home. The secret is to make it festive but situated in a limited space. Bring out the party hats, decorate the house with balloons, prepare the dessert or dining table with dog-themed utensils, and you’re all set! This type of party, however, is applicable only for 3-4 dog visitors. Friendly reminder: Don’t forget to cover up the couch to protect your furniture.
Doggy Ball Pit!
How about considering a ball pit party for your dog and some of his friends? It’s very easy to host one! Just a plastic kiddie pool from childhood that you don’t use anymore will do. Plastic balls are also available at low prices, so you don’t have to worry about spending a lot. An estimate of 100 balls for a 4-foot-diameter pool is also enough to fill the fun. Witness your fur baby and his friends get excited with that pool of joy and happiness!
Friendly Costume Party
Whether you are doing a backyard or indoor party, dressing up your lovely dog will make it more fun and exciting! Send out invitations to the other fur parents indicating a dress-up theme and see for yourself how excited these fur moms/dads will also be. Serve food and drinks according to the theme. You may also set up a small makeshift fashion stage using three or more picnic mats laid on the grass. This is going to be a cute fashion show, so prepare an award each for every participating dog!
Dog parties need not be expensive! You can always go to a restaurant to celebrate your furry baby’s birthday, but this year, make it different by including the neighborhood dogs. Don’t forget about the human parents of your furry friends too. Make drinks and snacks for everyone attending. Prepare goodie bags for the furry visitors as well. Ready your cameras as this will be an event you will want to cherish forever.
Happy Birthday Doggie!
