Puppy Party

Here it is, as promised: Makana's 1st birthday party.

It was fitting that we based the theme on dogs. It was one of his first words and he is absolutely intrigued with the animal.

It was a lot of work but well worth it -I'd do it all over again if I had to- because we all had a great time, especially the birthday boy. Even though he slept for the first half of it... he woke up refreshed and ready for cake!

Inside the favor bags: Scooby snacks, personalized bubbles, bouncy ball, puppy chow and a paper throw paper wand (or whatever you call it)
that's a guava glaze on top of whipped cream and cake- oh so yummy

The food. OH, the food!
I wish I had a plate right now. 
It was sooooo so so so good. 

My husband, Keoni, caught about 100 fish within the last few weeks just for the party.

The birthday boy and I

These are my awesome friends who helped run the party- Liko, Stephanie, and Chante
(Steph, I just noticed how stylish your nails were)
(and where did you learn how to hold a shaved ice?... pinky out and everything!!!)

We played a few games. One of which we clothes pinned a fabric tail on the back of everyone's shirt. Then you had to run around and step on other tails. The last one standing with a tail still attached was the winner. We split everyone into 3 games- ages 2-5, 5-12 and 12+. The 12+ were hilarious (aka, the adults who participated). 

Our happy little puppy family. 
My husband went for highlights in his fur 

Oh, what a happy day!

I love your decorations! I was wondering if you would be willing to share some of your matching printables with me. My daughter has asked for a puppy party next month and I'm trying to plan it out. Thanks!

Great party! Did your husband really catch 100 fish? Wow! I love all your puppy-themed treats. My favorite are the mini dog bone cookies. So cute!
