My sweet Caroline turned 3 years old earlier this month, and we celebrated with a Paw Patrol themed birthday party.
Her first two birthdays were simple and sweet at home with the family, but this year we went all in and had a huge Pump It Up birthday party with tons of friends and family.
I created her invitation with Photoshop using Paw Patrol PNG files that I bought from this etsy seller.
I contemplated renting a bouncy house for our backyard and inviting everyone over, but then I looked around at my piles of dishes and laundry and decided it was well worth the money to have the party at the local bouncy house place.
By this age, both of my kids had latched onto a cartoon of choice. Garrett loved Thomas the Train, and Caroline loves Paw Patrol. So we just ran with it. I decided to take the easiest decorating route possible and sent my husband on a mission to find all the Paw Patrol themed plates, cups, napkins and tablecloths at the Dollar store and Walmart.
He also found masks and a little centerpiece so we were up to our collars in Paw Patrol themed party supplies. Pump it up provided “Pupperoni Pizza” and juice for all the kids.
Have I mentioned how awesome my husband is at this kind of stuff? He also came up with the kid’s favors- a hologram Paw patrol cups filled with candy, Paw Patrol gummies, a CapriSun and a Paw Patrol character toy. Of course, I forgot to take a picture of all that awesomeness, but here they are inside the favor bags I found at Walmart. I labeled them “Doggie Bags” and the kids loved them.
I also bagged up some chocolate cereal in clear bags and labeled it “Puppy Chow” and the kids really loved trying it. I think I tricked some of them into believing it was real dog food.
The good thing about a Paw Patrol theme is the primary colors. A bowl full of M&Ms and some USA Snickers matched perfectly.
We had “Chase’s Chips” and dip along with some cookies.
Since I dialed it in on the rest of the decor, here is where I focused all of my creative efforts. A bone shaped birthday cake with the PAW Patrol logo!
I made this cake from scratch, and blogged about it in a separate post. Go read all about How To DIY a Paw Patrol Birthday Cake. It was surprisingly simple and tasted AMAZING.
Everyone loved it. Especially the birthday girl!
