Dogs fill our lives with so much love and happiness, they deserve to be celebrated every single day. While most of us would love to do just that, we know it’s impractical (sigh). This is why their birthdays are the perfect opportunity to make them feel special and show them just how much you cherish their presence in your life.
In our article today, we will help you plan the perfect birthday party for your pooch with some s-paw-tacular dog party decoration ideas.
Dog birthday celebration - Top party decoration concepts
First things first, get the guest list ready and invite them. Make sure you invite all of Bruno’s park friends and neighbours (along with the pawrents, of course). After that, pick up a few of the ideas below:
Get a personalized chalkboard
Bring out the creative side of you and decorate a chalkboard with details about Bruno - when he was born, when he came into your life, his age, his likes and dislikes, etc. You can make it as adorable, colourful, and funny as you please. It will light up the place and become an excellent conversation starter at his puppy party.
Set up a photo booth
Get some Instagram-ready selfies with your dog, and make it a fun day for all guests too! Photo booths are practical dog birthday accessories that don’t even need a lot of space. So, why not rent one?
Transform the living room with some doggy banners
A huge banner with your dog’s name on it and a few ribbons with his face will truly depict how you feel about Bruno - that he is the BEST doggo in the world! (We agree with you.) You can also have smaller banners spread across the house or party area for added colour and fun.
P.S. Avoid balloons because the chances of them bursting and causing panic among pooches are high.
Order custom birthday hats
“Bruno’s furtastic birthday”
“Pawsome birthday fun!”
Add birthday hats with taglines like these to your dog party decorations. You can order them in different colours so that when everyone wears them, it looks simply amazing!
Buy a cute birthday outfit for Bruno
After all, we all deserve new clothes on our birthday! Something comfortable and in-sync with the party theme will make him the center of attraction throughout.
Organize fun games and set them up beforehand
Play the dog version of Simon Says and draw the lines before so that you don’t have to set anything up at the last moment. Plus, it will be a part of the décor!
There are many other similar games that both humans and doggos can participate in. Decide which ones to go for and set the stage up accordingly.
Arrange a red carpet entry for all guests
Or, if you have a small area, you can arrange the red carpet only for Bruno’s entry when the party begins. Those living in an apartment can try and lay the carpet on the staircase leading to their floor.
Give out personalized gifts - a bandana
All fur friends look stunning in bandanas. Giving them a personalized bandana will give the paw parents a reason to remember your dog’s birthday for a long time. All paw friends can wear the bandanas during the party itself to click some lovely photos in the photo booth.
Get a doggy ball pit
Tell us a better love story than dogs and balls. We’ll wait.
Of course, you can’t!
So, how can a dog party be complete without a ball pit? If you have a large backyard or if you are hosting the party outdoors, this is among the mandatory dog birthday supplies.
Make presents a part of the decor
You are surely going to buy Bruno a lot of presents, aren’t you? Why not decorate them around the house and then have him open them himself? It will be a fun activity towards the end of the party. Depending on his temperament, you can also decide to do it after everyone leaves so that he has time for himself.
The BEST day of the year’s approaching and you’re out of ideas! That’s never going to happen from now because this list will come to your rescue every year. Bookmark it and make every birthday a super-special one for your doggo.
