Today we are delighted to share this Preppy Poodle Party submitted by Amber of EAE Personalized Creations. Amber created this party in celebration of her daughter's 2nd Birthday and glady shares the details that went into the planning...
I started working on my Emery's 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, I've 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 fabric collection with the main pattern being quatrefoil and incorporating stripes.
Im am a huge DIY'er and a planner. I have been gathering pieces 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. My favorite piece 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 couldn't 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, As another favor I gave little bottles of paul mitchell kid shampoo and named them shampoodles.
