This weekend was our beagle’s birthday — Pixie’s birthday! She is a sweet member of our family. So just like any member of the family, we celebrated her birthday with a party!
Off to Petco we went to buy special treats and gifts for the birthday girl. The store had a great variety of boxed gourmet treats. We felt the gourmet cranberry cupcake selection was the best yummy addition to the treats we found at the by-the-pound stand. For gifts, a big beef bone and new chew toy were perfect choices for the guest of honor.
For the table, the featured color was red which was complimented beautifully by the boxwood greens that accented the table. Simple white serving platters/dishes, used to display the goodies we bought, gave a nice contrast to the mixed red/brown plaid quilt that served as the tablecloth. Paw print labels and red crepe ribbons rounded off the table.
For the background, red curtains and a framed “Happy Birthday” paw print sign finished the look, giving our regal beagle the royal treatment she deserved.
Needless to say, Pixie felt extra special on her birthday. She blew out the candle on her homemade birthday mini loaf, and enjoyed all the extra attention and love.
Paw-py Birthday Pixie!
