Charlie has been delighting our family home with ‘P, P, P, P, Paw Patrol’ for the last few months. I swear he knows every word to the very popular theme song. It was no surprise when he announced that he would love to have his 5th birthday theme around Ryder and his heroic pups Marshall, Rubble, Chase, Rocky, Zuma, Skye and now Everest. So began our mission of creating our own little Adventure Bay…A simple, fun Paw Patrol party…
With the glorious warm Summer, the pool is the ultimate playground for kids. So was born the pool party! That was of course until the weather turned sour and it was a quick redirection to the backyard.
I ADORE Etsy for invitations. There are so many fabulous designs with minimal work. We chose this one from Pakemsabhara and received lots of lovely compliments.
Getting creative with food was super fun and there are so many ways to play on words with the Paw Patrol party theme.
Even the adults could get in on the fun with this nibblies platter-which let’s face it EVERYONE enjoyed, not just the big kids.
Dinner was made easy with Pup-peroni pizza from our local pizza store. No fuss.
This was one of the easiest cakes I’ve ever made. The cake base is from the Paw Patrol Lookout toy and the pups are bath squirters which the kids loved playing with after eating the cake.
We decided to go old school. Passing on party games you grew up with a kid is a perk of being a parent right? Our birthday boy and his guests giggled their way through Pass The Parcel to the Paw Patrol theme song and Pin The Badge on Chase.
-Food labels were purchased from Designs By Lyssa Lou.
-Dog bowls from Kmart.
-Balloons Big W (they have a number of Paw Patrol party accessories).
-Chalk footprints in the driveway to welcome guests.
-A fire hydrant on the bathroom door.
One of my favourite things about parties are presenting party favours to thank guests for attending. Having a son who reacts badly to sugar means we need to get creative. This year we managed to incorporate his love for colouring with these awesome bone pencil cases and bone crayons. We just downloaded free printables and created a Paw Patrol book.
On the way home our guests could choose a pup to take home, love and remember the fabulous memories they created during the Paw Patrol party.
