As some of you already know about me, I take party planning pretty seriously. Not that I'm a crazed lunatic about making everything perfect and go nutso if my plans don't come off just right. But, you might say my ideas are slightly wacky. What can I say, I love a good theme and I admit, I get excited about all the possibilities.
Mostly, I love to give my children an experience rather than a bunch of things for their milestones. The stuff gets lost, forgotten, aged out of. My goal is to create memories. I can't wait to reminisce about the days we did this party, or how fun that party was, or remembering the cake from that one year, or declaring a favorite theme.
For Petite Artiste's sixth soiree, we decided to do a Scottish Terrier party. As I mentioned before, finding Scottie inspiration around the web has proven to be "ruff". So we started leaning towards a Scottish/Scottie dog theme. Also, near impossible to find that one done before. Which seems impossible to me because can't we find everything we need from the Internet?!?! In my case, not so much!
A little rearranging and some creative thinking had me scouring everything puppy or dog party themed to get my juices flowing.
Currently, as I type this, I have dog bones painted blue drying in my front yard. I'm keeping watch in case a wayward squirrel decides to snatch a few.
My idea? I'm going to make dog bone garland for some dog party decorations of course.
