It’s no secret that we are obsessed with puppies – when we say puppies this could refer to a 12-year-old dog, they’re all puppies in our eyes!
So, we were over the moon when Ashleigh contacted us asking if we could assist her with the planning process of little Sydney’s first birthday party, just like us – Sydney loves dogs, this was a match made in doggy heaven!
Ashleigh’s brief was very much up our alley, a monochrome palette with a pop of color, we couldn’t wait to get started! Sweet treats consisted of pupcorn, doggy biscuits, pupcakes, cake pups & a yummy birthday cake.
Ashleigh didn’t leave a detail unturned and not only wanted to keep the kids happy, but the parents were also treated to a coffee bar, mimosas and a variety of delicious breakfast snacks.
Entertainment included full run of the fully equipped play area at Chalkwood House along with a face painter.
Our favorite part of the entire party was the adopt a puppy station which was such a hit with the kids – each guest received a stuffed pug puppy along with an adoption certificate to take home and care for as their own pet. In a perfect world, every kid would have gone home with a cream golden retriever puppy as seen in the movie Bridesmaids. We would 110% would have gone home with a puppy or two.
The party was held at the lovely Chalkwood House Play School in Sunningdale, the perfect blank canvas to make our vision come to life. The black, white and green palette was incredibly striking and we focused on modern inspired design elements to bring the look together.
