Pet Party Invitations
You can easily make your own invitations to send to pet parents. Here is an idea for the Female Dogs and one for Male Dogs. Invitations set the tone for a Pet Party.
Picking a Theme for Your PartyI don't know how thrilled Toby is about the party hat, but you have to admit he is absolutely adorable. If you don't know your pets birthday, pick a date.and then pick a theme for your party. How about some famous dogs like scooby doo, snoopy, clifford ,or a pink poodle party. Or you can pick a season, such as a garden party in the spring, Winter Wonderland for winter parties , pumpkins in the fall, or a swim party or backyard barbecue in the summer. Can't wait until your pups birthday....have a spaw day or a Bark Mitzvah.....you get the idea.

Your baby's First Birthday is a very special occasion and you want to celebrate this wonderful little person who has forever changed your life.

1st Birthday Lion Party Invitation by cooltees

Party Ideas:Plan for the party to last an hour to an hour-and-a-half since babies have short attention spans and run out of energy quickly.
Plan the party for late morning or late afternoon after nap time.
Have guests bring a memento like a photo of a relative with baby,a toy, or a magazine with the year of her birth. I bought
a Life Magazine when my daughter was a baby. It amazes her what was going on in the world when she was born. Put these items in a time capsule for baby to open on 21st birthday.
Make simple but very cute cupcakes by piping icing around the edges of the cupcake and using a icing pen to make the face.

GamesSmall children enjoy playing with balls. Try several different types. Small balls like these Kush balls or large beach type balls. Bean bag toss is another activity young children enjoy. While they are outside, give them some sidewalk chalk. Highlight the activities by releasing a bunch of balloons.
Catch the Tiger by the Tail Game: (Easy to set up game that the older kids will enjoy. This may be too difficult for a one year old.)Kids sit in a circle on the floor. The child who is the lion puts a homemade Lion's tail into his waistband and begins circling the group and touching each child on the head and saying Lion. When he touches a head and says Hyena, the hyena tries to grab the lions tail. If the Lion can make it back to the hyena's seat with his tail, he is still King of the jungle.
Don't go overboard with the party, your one year old will never remember it, but be sure to have the camera ready to make pictures for your baby to see later.

I'm ready for my next project which may be this cool idea from Lady Goats. Love, love this drawer organization. She made drawer dividers with rulers and there are no tools required to make this. She uses a box cutter to make a guide to break the rulers. Just too cool. Click HERE for her tutorial.

My niece sent me a link to a site that makes blessing bags. Love this idea. You can make these bags up as a group and put them in your trunk. We have all seen homeless people that we have wanted to help but have held back because it's not a good idea to give them money. Click here to visit the site for ideas of what to put in the bags. Be sure to read the comments, there are a lot of great ideas there. One idea was to put wipes instead of the soap so the smell of the soap doesn't transfer to the food. Coupons are a great way to get products for these bags. They can end up costing next to nothing using coupons.
