This sweet Bat Mitzvah girl wanted her theme to go to the dogs.  She plans on being a veterinarian one day and I believe she will make it happen.  She has a huge heart for dogs and knows more about dogs than any one person I know.

The party was held a the beautiful barn at Trader’s Point Creamery.

The cocktail table centerpieces were giant tennis balls atop a cylinder filled with dog treats.  The table topper was craft paper that I edged with a punch to create lace like border.  We placed crayons on each table for people to doodle. 

I found some amazing dog photos and blew them up, mounted them and added watercolor paint to each one in the party colors.  I topped each one with a PEACE LOVE or PAWS bone.

The centerpieces were dog topiaries.  Each table had a different dog.  The base of the centerpiece was a dog bowl filled with painted dog bones.

Under each bowl was a bandana.

We tied each white napkin to look like a rawhide dog bone.

Another feature of the party was the sweets station.

It was filled with lots of candy and cupcakes

and doggie bags to fill with people treats.

Some of the vessels were dog dishes, treat jars and bone baskets.

One thing the Bat Mitzvah girl really wanted was a cupcake tree for the mini cupcakes made from The Flying Cupcake

Above is the beautiful letterpress invitation for the party.  We took inspiration from the tree in the invite and made a tree to hold the mini cuppies.

For the photo station we brought a cone of shame, dog bones, dog toys and a giant bone cut out for the guests to play around with.

The beverage stations had signature drinks such as “The Tennis Ball”

and “The Leash”

All served at the water bowl.
