Down Home Blog Hop~Number 77 + A Puppy Pom Pom Birthday Party


My youngest daughter had a birthday party this past weekend. She had a few of her closest friends over to the house to make Puppy Pom Poms. The week prior we had so much fun getting the party together, that I could not wait to share it with you for this week's blog hop.

It was important for me to get everything ready prior to the girl's arrival. I decided to use my vintage jadeite cake plates for the table's centerpiece. I pre-made all the pom-poms.
I made small little doggie beds from felt and a bit of stuffing.
I made little dog houses from take-out containers. We randomly put one pom pom nose in each house. This let the girls know which color puppy there were going to make.
Then I put the ears, bows for the ears, beaded eyes, felt noses and tongues into their own dish.
Dollar store bracelets and scrapbook embellishments made the puppy collars.
A bin full of stickers was set out to keep the girls busy when they were waiting for help with their puppies. The girls happily designed their puppy homes with these.

We placed the puppies in their puppy houses to dry. Since the bottom cake plate was now empty of pom poms, I added them to the bottom cake plate. Then I moved the flowers to the top of the cake plate to make room below. I love the way the centerpiece transformed during the party.
This party was so much fun! Here's a peek at some of their creations.

  3. How exciting to see my post 'Taking A BITE Out Of Your Grocery Budget" is being featured on the hop this week. There's been lots of interest lately on ways to lower grocery budgets and there are some really easy ways to do so if you just stop & think about it sometimes. Love the hop, thanks for hosting!

  4. Those little pom-pom puppies look adorable! What a great birthday idea! :)

    Are the very drugs we are taking to combat mental illness actually making us sick? That is one of the questions discussed in Anatomy of an Epidemic... and in this post, I discuss the book.
    Thanks for hosting, and Happy Wednesday!
