So, with Colton's party being a dog-themed affair, I had to run with it. The party was at 4PM, so I figured we didn't really need to serve a meal, but instead just some snacks. Per usual, I tended to lean towards sweet items and things that were totally unhealthy...I mean, it's a party, right?!? I am proud to report that for once I seemed to gage correctly, as we actually had very few leftovers!
And it all looked so pretty (if I don't say so myself):
Pupcorn (just basic Smartfood)
Water Bowls (blue Jello)
Pillow stuffing (cotton candy)
Fetch sticks (pretzel sticks dipped in chocolate)
Aside from the tastiness of the menu, the most exciting part was how easy it was. As you can tell, there wasn't much cooking involved, and three recipes that I did make were also pretty simple to make. I got all of them from Pinterest (surprise, surprise), and they were all delicious, especially the Pepperoni Rolls...seriously, come up with a reason to make those!
Oh, and while we're talking food, I absolutely have to share with you Colton's birthday cake:
I can't take credit for the brilliant idea (yep, it too was found through Pinterest), but it was so freaking easy to replicate...I just baked a cake, plopped it in a (***new, clean***) dog bowl, frosted it with chocolate icing, and topped it off with Cocoa Puffs.
Have I made you hungry yet? Or maybe sick of hearing dog party details? Hopefully not because I have one more post (I promise!) tomorrow with all of the details on the fun from the party.
