3 Tricks for Hosting a Formal Birthday Party for your Dog

Tricks for Hosting a Formal Birthday Party for your Dog

Dog parties are a blast, especially when it's a more formal affair. Treating your furry best friend to the finer things adds just the right amount of class to your dog's party. By sprucing up the hors d'oeuvres, dessert, and dressing up your place, you'll have one delightful evening that no one will forget. Here are three fantastic tricks that'll help you make your dog's party a little more formal.

Class Up the Cake

A decadent cake that oozes with elegance increases the bow wow factor of your dog's party. Selecting a beautiful cake design that expresses the classy side of your pooch inspires every pup in attendance to enjoy the good life. Here at The Dog Bakery, you can choose from a variety of delicious flavors such as creamy peanut butter, coconut, or delicious carob fudge. Bake or buy some mouthwatering doggy hors d'oeuvres and serve them on fancy dishes. Woof Creme Pies, PB and Yummy Bars, and Munchkins wonderfully accent a formal dog party.

Dress Them Up

Having your dog and their guest’s dress up is the perfect way to add formality to the occasion. Sweet dresses and tuxedos look smashing on every breed, and outfits can be mixed and matched for that aristocratic vibe. Accessories complement any ensemble that you choose. A precious bow, top hat, or spiffy scarf looks fabulous and classy. According to Bowdabra, if you want to use a bow for your dog, then for 0-5 pound dogs, use 3/8 wide bows; for 5-10 pound, use 5/8 wide bows; and for 10 pounds or larger, use 7/8 wide bows. Making your dog a dashing hound or a lovely lady is fun and easy to do.

Spice Up the Decor

Fancy food and attire are a great start for making your dog's party more formal, but using fancy decor puts the icing on the cake. Refine the doggy appeal of your best canine friend’s party by formally setting the table and by incorporating decor that enhances the formality of your party. Tapered candles add an elegant touch, as do cozy pillows for your dog's guests to retire and to relax on. Revelry Goods recommends picking a focus color when decorating. You can use it as a decorative accent that your dog and their guests can also wear. 

Your dog's party is a time to enjoy the finer things with their friends. Creating the right ambiance for your pup's formal affair is a snap when you add touches of class to each element. Your dog and their guests will appreciate your efforts!
