It’s birthday season in our house and we’re starting off with Camden’s 4th birthday. This year he wanted to celebrate with a Paw Patrol themed birthday and we happily got to work putting together all the fun details.

If you’re unfamiliar with Paw Patrol it’s a hit show on Nickelodeon and revolves around some special pups who always save the day in Adventure Bay. For the invites I went to Evite and found a great puppy theme one.
As you walked up to the house I use a paw print stencil and some sidewalk chalk to make sure our guests knew they were at the right place. When you walked into the house Mike made a sign that said Welcome to Adventure Bay.
The party decor was pretty simple we just used all of our Paw Patrol toys.
For food I’ve learned to keep it simple, but themed. We love to serve Chick-fil-a nuggets at our parties and I love that we put them in dog bowls so all the party pups would enjoy them. I had a lot of parents that were pleased we served something other than pizza and were delighted their kids actually ate them as well.
Mike worked his fruit and veggie skills making them into a paw print and dog bone shape and we took some pretzel rods and told everyone they were fetch sticks.
When it came to activities I printed off some some free printables from Nick Jr so we had coloring pages and dot to dots. I also got some pony beads and we made some badges for the kids to make their own dog collars/necklaces. Our big activity was dancing the Pup, Pup Boogie. Sadly we got no pictures of it, but it was adorable to watch them all tail spin together.
The cake was my favorite. Camden asked for a Paw Patroller and we delivered! I also make a point to get the Paw Patrol serving cups because serving cake and ice to pre-schoolers is much easier this way.
For favors I try hard to get something both the parents and kids will love. This year I got Paw Patrol books for each family and I had a badge and small dog for each child. I’m happy to say it was a big hit.
Overall it was a great party and Camden felt special and his friends had a great time. A lot of work goes into a home birthday party, but it’s something I enjoy doing and now I can’t wait to plan the next party!
