Puppy Party Ideas for Mutt’s Day 2015

Hello and happy Wednesday! The inspiration board for this week is inspired by Mutt’s Day. Apparently, July 31 is the official day to celebrate your mutt! When I read about this unusual but fun holiday, I knew there was going to be an idea board put together inspired by the holiday.

This week’s idea board could really go a few ways: as a party for welcoming a new mutt to your home, an adoption party (for stuffed animals of course!), or a puppy party – with the kids getting to wear cute puppy ear headbands, play puppy games, etc.

Here’s what I had in mind:

Comic Book Party Ideas

So it turns out tomorrow, September 25th, is National Comic Book Day! Who knew? I didn’t know they had this holiday, but apparently it’s been around for a while. Did you know it was an official day?

I thought I would put together an inspiration board to help get your creative juices flowing if you were throwing a little get together to celebrate. This could also be a helpful resource if you were having a super hero party, a hero party, a villains party….or really a lot of kid party ideas. Here’s what I’m thinking:

Snowman Birthday Party Ideas

Are you nice and cozy and warm?  As I write this I am, but I know January in Florida is some of our coldest time of the year.  In fact, I’m pretty sure it is colder now then it was around Christmas.

Unfortunately, we don’t have the “snow cold”, just “Florida cold” here, so we don’t get to make snowmen any time of the year, much less after Christmas. One of my wishes as a kid was to have a snowman birthday party. I thought that should be the inspiration for this week’s idea board. So without further ado:

Little Monster Bash Ideas

Boo!

Happy October! I’m so excited it’s October aren’t you? Not so much because I’m a Halloween fan or anything, but more because my holiday decorating whims are a little more justified. The stores near me have already had their fully set up and decorated CHRISTMAS TREES on display for several weeks now….WHY?! I have no idea why, but whatever, they are up.

Today’s inspiration board is for those of you with little monsters of your own. I thought hosting a “monster bash” for the little ones would be soo adorable! I could just imagine a room full of cute little monsters running around….Anyways, staying focused!

I think this would be a wonderful theme for a birthday celebration, or just a traditional Halloween party. But honestly, as a grown adult I would totally go to a cute-sy monster bash! Wouldn’t you?

To get you in the mood, make sure to have this video playing in the background:

Ok, now you are ready:

Beach Themed {Poolside} Birthday Party

You know what’s NOT fun? Back to school anything. Every year it seems like kids summers are getting shorter and shorter. This year I saw “back to school” ads as early as June! Some kids are still IN school in June. That is just crazy. I ask you, what is the world coming to?

So what does that have to do with anything? Well, moral of the story is we need to help make summer last! I’d make it a national campaign if I had the funding…… Now I get it, not everyone lives beach side, or has beach worthy weather year round, I get it I do. BUT if the weather is right, I think you could host a beach themed birthday party (or end of summer party) up through August, maybe even early September. And why shouldn’t you really? Think of it as a grand finale, a final sunset if you will, to summer.

Here is my mood board for hosting a party such as this:
