Callan had such a fun 4th Birthday party! It was his first friend party and my hardest time to prep. Having just had a baby, I didn't have the energy to do as much planning and prepping as I like to. Thank goodness that he chose a theme that was so easy right now, with tons of party stuff available! I did a Mustache Bash before mustaches were the thing, a Ninja Turtle party right before the new movie came out and a Disney Cars and Toy Story party far passed it's prime. Needless to say, I was ready for a pretty easy party and that's just what this one was.
I got the cake at Target and they had 2 different Paw Patrol options.
My first attempt at royal icing was on the paw and bone cookies. It was a bit time consuming, but so fun! And now that I have the hang of it, I will absolutely be making them in the future. I think they look so professional.
Along with the cookies, I made "puppy chow" chex mix and a tray of "ruff-age".
We had a hot dog bar on the table, with chili in the crock pot. I forgot to chop the onion at the last minute!
We served the pup-corn in the dog bowls covered with bones, just like the cookies and puppy chow.
Since Callan is really into Paw Patrol, he of course had lots of toys to help decorate. I put out almost all the toys he had, which made for great decorations.
I hit the jackpot at Dollar Tree and Walmart for the goodie bags. Molded crayons, bracelets, cups, stickers, puzzles and play packs were all inside.
I topped the bag with these printables that I could put everyones name on.
The party was a complete success! Especially for my big 4 year old!
