We think about dog parties, but why not cat parties!!!

Our pets are the center of attention, more and more these days and so why not use that as an excuse for a party.  We know that most parties are going to be hosted by and attended by pups, but we thoughts this fiesta cat was pretty cute to kick this party off.  Here are a few things to consider when planning a pet friendly, pets as guest party or pet guest of honor.

1. Consider finding a hat, bandana or costume that fits your pet and your theme for photos and or for the party.

2. Create a menu with food and treats for pets and people.  You will want to note the ingredients to ensure that if you do have pet guests there are no allergies.

3. Make it easy for your guests to build a plate or bowl for their pet and for themselves.  Sturdy plates are a great idea.

4. Make sure there are water stations or bowls for water, especially for outdoor parties.

5. Create party favors and treat bags that are fit for people and for pets.

6.  If you are celebrating a new rescue puppy or a hero for saving the day, you can tailor things to the dog of honor.

7. Keep in mind you are hosting animals when deciding your decor and props, they like to have fun and may choose to do so with your props.

8. Know the pets you are inviting to ensure that everyone gets along well.

9. Make a dog friendly cake or cupcakes to celebrate

10.  Have fun planning and entertaining.  You can choose just about any theme and make it pet friendly.

We love the idea of wrapping and displaying silverware in this sombrero.  You can stack them high to accommodate  your guest list. You can also fill this hat with tortilla chips, bowls of salsa or line it and fill with desserts.

Having colorful treats for dogs at the party table is a lot of fun, they actually can be eaten by humans, but ideal for dogs, so slice, dry and display colorful veggies for your dog and people fiesta.

Planning a few games that your guests can do as a team, pet and person or even for the dogs on their own can be a lot of fun.  You will want to have some prizes on hand for the winners.  

Dog and People Scavenger Hunt – a fun game for pets and people is to give a list of items to find – you can send them on a walk, in the yard or at the park.  You might want to make sure everyone has poo bags for the walk about.  You can have them find actual items or use their phone and take a selfie or photo with dog at certain spots.  You will find the Pet Scavenger Hunt in our Free Downloads

Mexican Dog Jumping Bean Game – using a ball see which of the dogs can jump the highest.  

Doggie Limbo – dogs love to sneak under a fence or get down low when they are on the prowl.  See which dog can get the lowest without knocking off the pole.

Pet and People Piñata – fill a piñata  with pet treats, dog toys, bouncing balls or even sticks and see which pair breaks the piñata first and create a game with what is inside or give goodie bags to fill up with treats or toys.  This Cactus Piñata is a great for the Fiesta Theme and plenty of room to fill it up.

These ideas work for pet, people or pet and people parties!!!  And work for just about any occasion from a dog rescue to a graduation party and from a new home to a dog birthday.  We love any excuse for a party and hope you consider a fiesta party for your next celebration.
