The idea was the brainchild of the photographer and golden retrievers ‘Shelby’s’ mum Anna Munro.

Anna and her assistant Miranda Zander worked with cake maker Grace at Sweet bakery to design a concept and whole menu of totally dog friendly treats.

Tip

If you would like to throw a pup party make sure the dogs know one another.

These three all play together regularly so it made for a really chilled afternoon. We until Shelby discovered she was tall enough to eat from the table.

But she was the birthday girl so…

Nikau’s Animal Party – Featured Party!

Annaliese has shared her son Nikau’s Animal party and 1st birthday as our featured party!

Nikau just loves lions so we decided to go with an animal theme.

We didn’t follow it through 100% and the theme swapped and changed and ended up being a bit of everything eg mint and silver, confetti and animals.

I’m a daycare teacher and Nikau comes to work with me and his absolute favourite toy that he was so attached to was a plastic lion. Every morning he would seek it out and not let it go for the majority of the day.  That’s how the animal theme came about the other themes came up as I was shopping at Pop Roc Parties and saw so many pretty things!

Popcorn in our Eco Chic cones and cone tray

Cute animal cupcakes

Mini milk bottles with confetti + mint stripe paper straws

Celebrating with my little Nikau. It was a very emotional day for me. It was full of laughter one minute and tears the other. I just couldn’t believe my baby was one.

Nikau also enjoyed his first ever baking (cupcake) and a marshmallow which I think was his highlight.

TIP FROM ANNALIESE:

Enjoy the day and try not to be too stressed, everything will work out!
