I was thrilled to design a simple party that is perfect to celebrate your dog’s birthday! Dog’s are man’s best friend so why NOT have a little celebration for your puppy?

“… We were lucky to have just the right fabric in a puppy motif but you can find lots of great patterns and colors at your local fabric or craft store! has some great choices too – I love this bold black/white bone pattern. Fabric is an inexpensive and easy way to cover your puppy’s birthday table!

Now that you have your covering, pull together your color scheme. We chose the browns and reds to pull from our fabric. Creating a fun backdrop is very easy with tissue paper fans. They’re easy to store and can be used for all sorts of occasions! You can make your own tissue paper pom poms or buy tissue paper fans in every color online! We chose red and hung 3 with thumb tacks.

1 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup oats
3/4 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1 apple
1 teaspoon cinnamon or all-spice
3 eggs lightly beaten
1 package low-fat cream cheese
2 to 3 tablespoons apple sauce

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix oats, cinnamon and flour together in a small bowl. In another bowl mixed together pumpkin, diced apple, apple sauce, eggs. Combine wet and dry ingredients and scoop into a greased cupcake pan.  Since the cupcakes won’t rise, be sure to fill them very high! They are dense! Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from oven and transfer to a cooling rack to dry out over night. To prepare frosting, beat  cream cheese and 2 to 3 tablespoons apple sauce until smooth. Fill frosting in plastic bag and cut corner. Swirl frosting atop pupcake. Garnish with big bone. Makes about 6 pupcakes.

  1. I had no idea you styled a doggie birthday party! You know we’re having one for Violet in April and you’ll have to be here, right? For Bosco’s last party I made human pupcakes, but this time I’ll also have to make your recipe for the dogz. Watch for your invite. We have to get our act together over here.
