Puppy Party

How to throw a puppy party:

Hit the $Spot at Target for cute dog items.
Cardstock and a little "origami" skill!
Let each child adopt a puppy from the "Rescue Shelter."
 and groom their new dogs at the grooming station.
Make beaded collars 
with shrinky-dink dog tags 
for your new pets.
Have a Bone Scavenger Hunt, 
and play "Trainer" Says.

For the kids:
Hot dogs, puppy chow, Scooby snacks, and cocoa puffs served in new dog bowls UNDER  the table.
For the adults: all of the above, and tomato-mozarella-basil skewers served ON the table.
You are on your own! 
(I made this one a day ahead in case I had to hit the grocery store bakery for a backup!)
But it turned out okay!
(or in this case, "doggie bags"!)
Inside: a mix CD of dog songs, a "dog" whistle, a candy (necklace) collar , Scooby snacks, and a heart pillow that says "I woof you."
Add all together and get one happy birthday girl!
