I started working on my daughters 2nd Birthday shortly after I had finished her first ;) Since she was born we have casually called her our little poodle so I knew that we had to do a poodle theme for her second birthday party.
When I was looking up ideas for poodle partys the only thing I was getting back was the poodle in paris theme so I knew I had to put my creative cap on and get to work. My color scheme was established early, Ive always loved Navy and Pink together, I think its a classic combo that also gives a preppy clean feel in which I was trying to achieve. We designed the poodle graphic early using a frabic collection with the main pattern being quatrefoil and incorporating stripes.
Im am a huge DIY'er and a planner. I have been gathering peices and ideas for months. Everything aspect of this party I had a hand in. I wanted this party to have a very modern preppy feel.
ALL printables were custom designed and printed by my company, EAE Personalized Creations- https://www.facebook.com/pages/EAE-Personalized-Creations/142784249117941?sk=messages_inbox&action=read&tid=id.562035847185858#!/pages/EAE-Personalized-Creations/142784249117941
My cupcake wrappers were purchased http://www.dressmycupcake.com/
The sweet dog cake was purchased at http://www.rileysbakerybg.com/
My cupcakes were baked a local woman who also made her 1st birthday cupcakes and they were AMAZING!!!
The custom cupcake stand was made and painted by my SUPER talented sister in law- Lisha Hancock
My favorite peice would have to be the poodle pastries stand. I went to my sister in law with the idea of a mini lemonade stand that I had envisioned to use in place of traditional cupcake stands. I couldnt be more happy with how it came out.
I also love and so did the kids, Poodle ears (for the girls) and brown puppy ears (for the boys) that I ran across at a local dollar store in the dollar bin for halloween!! What a score!
My cupcakes and puppy cake looked and tasted amazing
I also played off the Rhyming and use of words with P's involving poodles. Some of my favors included Poodle Polish (nail Polish) and Shampoodles (mini shampoos)
My sister is a hair stylist and I had her doing " poodle pedis" and the kids enjoying picking their polish and having their nails painted.
I always say to be creative and dont be afraid to do things yourself. It only makes it more special and gives a special since of achievment.
I love mixing patterns and colors, I love working with different papers and textures
