Belle's Birthday: A Pampered Pooch Party

My daughter Belle turned 11 on May 1st, so I had a little party for her!

I found the perfect string of silky rose petals
at the incomparable Ozma of Odds.

 I planned the whole party décor around it.
It’s $8 for a 6’ strand.    Rosemary makes decorative items so exquisite
you’ll cheat yourself if you don’t visit her.

The banner is just scraps of white tissue cut with pinking shears,
the letters are free-hand glue sprinkled with gold glitter.

The birthday girl proudly displayed in an adorable
Rachel Ashwell Simply Shabby Chic frame from Target.

I made fluffy tissue paper roses and hung them all over!

I tossed white crepe paper streamers from the dollar store over
my antique chandelier and taped on a few silk cherry blossoms.

The rosette at the top is just a piece of the streamer
wound around itself and taped.

My King and I made a white cake with whipped cream frosting,
and pink meringue cookies shaped like bones for the humans.
Doggies get a dog biscuit wrapped in French candy cones made
from Tattered Vintage sheet #208 (about $4).

The cute pink crepe paper garland was a freebie
in a Sugar*Sugar order I received from Etsy.

The New Dawn pink roses are made from generic cone coffee filters.
This Martha Stewart tutorial is fun - I just wet them when they’re done,
dab only the centers with pink watercolor from a kiddie tray of paints, et voila!

The smaller size Tattered Vintage candy cone makes a great birthday
hat once you tape vintage seam binding in and tie it onto your pooch’s
precious little head!
Miss Belle and her sister ZuZu are ready to par-tay!
(Like many old ladies, later on she fell asleep at her own fete.)

Until next time, stay shabby!

I’ll be sharing this with Table Top Tuesdays at A Stroll Thru Life
and Tablescape Thursday at Between Naps on the Porch.
You're invited to come along for the fun!

A birthday girl couldn't want anything more than this royal party. It's beautiful Sandy, would you come throw my next birthday extravaganza? I'm off to check out the links you've given ~ thank you. Happy birthday wishes to you Belle from me & Zeke!

Margaret said...

Everything looks 'gorgeous darling', I particularly love your tissue paper roses, those printed cones and your puppy's collar, but of course your two sweet little 'daughters' are the best of all. What spoilt girls!

Bella said...

Happy Birthday to Belle! What a lucky girl she is that is one lovely party! I am smitten with your clusters of paper roses!

Ginger said...

Sandy, what a beautiful poochy party you had for beautiful Belle. You did a wonderful job on the decor. Loved everything you made. Just lovely, and your little doggies are so sweet.
I can't get enough of your lovely blog.

Awww, how precious!
Happy Birthday, Belle!
My fur baby is named Belle, too. Only mine is a Siberian Husky, a bit bigger than your little girl. Just a bit. ;-)

Enjoy your weekend.

Oh, what a precious pooch party!! Your girls certainly are pampered!! You are preaching to the choir, as my pooch was honored as one of HGTV's 10 most pampered pooches back in 2006! I did a post on it! Your girls are beautiful and those little merangue dog bones are adorable!!

Big TX Hugs,

Peach Blossom Hill said...

So beautiful! And the poor little old ladies just couldn't stand all the excitement! My Golden Doodle, Scout, is my constant companion to the point of riding at my feet in the John Deere yesterday while I was square baling hay! She goes to work with me at my part-time job at the quilt shop and sleeps beside my bed at night. She is always there for me!

That BDay girl should have had dreams of doggy cookies dancing in her head for days! ADORABLE! Charlene
