The Ultimate Puppy Party

The Ultimate Puppy Party

We just celebrated Leo's @frenchieleo birthday this past weekend and everything turned out great! I wanted to share with everyone photos and some how-to tips on throwing the ultimate puppy party. 

 

  

Puppy Cake

I am all about feeding our pups healthy/clean treats, but I realize that making everything from scratch can take a lot of time and planning. I found this great cake mix called Puppy Cake on Amazon that is wheat-free and super easy to make. It also comes with a frosting packet! I centered the cake on a white cake stand and topped it with a gold crown.

 

Ingredients: rice flour, evaporated cane juice, peanut flour, baking powder and salt. Frosting mix: tapioca starch and unflavored yogurt powder 

 

 

 

And what is a birthday cake without ice cream? I found this super easy to make Puppy Scoops Ice Cream. Just add hot tap water and freeze. It comes in 4 flavor options: Vanilla, Carob, Peanut Butter, and Maple Bacon!

 

Table Details: 

There is a great party brand called Meri Meri. With the cutest party supplies. I used their gold and white stripe plates, and the gold star napkins and plates. For balloons I used an assortment of white stars and round white balloons from this Meri Meri White Baloon Kit

For glasses (for the humans) I used glass jars that I already had on hand and gave them a fun, fancy look with a sprinkle-dipped rim and gold starry paper straws.

How to: Paint the rims of the glasses with frosting, and coat with colored sprinkles. Store in refrigerator until ready to use.

I filled white goody bags with popcorn, rock candy, rice crispy star lollipops, and chocolate-drizzled marshmallows.  

* Time-Saving Tip: I made the rice crispy star lollipops using the organic brown rice marshmallow treats from Trader Joe's and a star-shaped cookie cutter. 

I also served these delicious chocolate and vanilla Macarons from Trader Joe's:

 

Royal Guests:

Each guest was given a gold crown. Leo had a white crown and a gold glitter crown.

If you have any party tips or comments- please leave them below! We would love to hear your thoughts!

Frozen Coconut Oil Dog Treats!

Frozen Coconut Oil Dog Treats!

Back to our obsession with coconut oil and its endless health benefits and uses...

Here is a QUICK and EASY recipe for frozen coconut oil dog treats. It takes no more then 5 minutes! 

What you will need:

  • Organic Coconut Oil
  • Baking Sheet
  • Parchment Paper
  • Zip-lock Bag
  • Scissors 
  1. Spoon out a small portion (1/4 cup) of the organic coconut oil into the zip-lock bag (preferably into one of the corners) and seal it.
  2. Line the baking sheet with parchment paper.
  3. Cut off the very tip of the corner of the zip-lock bag (similar to using it as a pastry bag or frosting bag) and squeeze small, mini-treat-size dollops of the coconut oil onto the parchment paper.
  4. Lastly, place the pan into your freezer. (They will harden rather quickly)

Voila! Done! These little treats can now be given to your little pup. Use sparingly because coconut oil, though extremely healthy for you and your pup, is also high in fat- good fats of course;)

 

Tip: I also use these for cooking, when I need a little oil for a pan or what not- just pop one of the frozen dollops into your pan an your good to go!
