Your pets make your life thrilling and unforgettable. Every day you come back home and find your furry friends waiting for you. They shower you with love, affection, and loyalty. So, you need to make them feel special as well.
Regular pampering treats and playdates are great ways to bond with your pets. In addition to this, you should also celebrate the day they met you.
How? Well, you can throw a birthday party for your furry friends.
However, a birthday party for them will be a bit different from the one hosted for humans. And, if it’s your first time planning a party, you might be confused about where to begin.
No worries! We’ve got you covered! Keep scrolling through to discover some fun and quirky ways to celebrate.
A Play Room
Let’s be honest! You spoil your furry friends almost every day with their favorite treat, toy, or simply with cuddling. But, as it is a special day, you have a legitimate reason to shower all you love to them. To do the same, you can create a playroom and fill it with a lot of toys. The options are endless- you can use tons of tennis balls, plushies, frisbees, flip board puzzles, and more.
If you want, you can take the playroom to the garden and also set up a small swimming pool. Needless to say, your furry friend will definitely love it.
Decorate The Living Room
Another thing that you can try is to decorate the hall using standard decor items. However, as it is for your pets, you need to decorate the place with their favorite things.
Suppose your pup loves bones. In that case, you can decorate the living room using bone-shaped banners. Likewise, you can use balloons that have a print of bone. If you are a DIYer, you can use construction paper, yarn, or twine to create dog-friendly confetti. But if you are not a crafty person, you can easily order dog-themed decorations online.
Enjoy Some Pup-Cakes
No birthday is complete without cakes for dogs. Don’t you agree? Therefore, you should try to bake a few pup-cakes for them. It might come as a surprise to you, but most of the pet-friendly cakes are human-friendly too. So, you and your furry friends can enjoy the cake together.
To make a cake, you just need common baking ingredients like whole-wheat flour, eggs, baking soda, and baby food or applesauce. To make this delicious cake more nutritious, you can add shredded veggies, blended bananas, peanut butter, or cream cheese.
If you don’t know how to bake, you can use a treat and add lots of peanut butter over it. Believe it or not, they will surely love it!
Get Ready For Party
The birthday of your pet is a big day. Therefore, you need to dress them up for the celebrations. You can easily find numerous pet costumes online that will make them look stunning. In fact, you can also throw a themed party according to the decided outfit.
Nevertheless, make sure to read the size chart carefully to select the correct size.
Pro Tip: If your furry friends don’t like to dress up, you can simply get a birthday hat. It will surely make them look cute.
Invite The Entire Crew
You can also invite all the other friends of your pet to make the celebrations grand. However, if you plan to do so, make sure there is enough space in your house to handle an entire crew.
Also, make proper arrangements for water and food to ensure that everyone stays hydrated and healthy. For food, you can prepare some healthy snacks such as baby carrots, sliced frozen bananas, green beans, and some dog treats.
Despite that, it can get a bit challenging for you to manage everything on your own, especially if you are organizing a party for the first time. Therefore, you should ask your fellow pet parents for their help.
Create A Photo Booth
Your Instagram and other social media accounts might already be filled with adorable photos of your little buddy. So how about adding some more to it? Seems interesting?
For that, you can set up your own photo booth backdrop. Just prepare several costumes, grab some props (you can also ask your guests to bring some props along), and set up the camera. That’s all! Now you can easily capture cute and awe-spiring pictures of your fur buddy.
Note: Do not force your pets to strike a specific pose. Instead, let them be and capture the natural poses. Make sure that they are comfortable during the shoot.
Another fun and exciting way to celebrate the day is by going outside and playing their favorite games. In fact, if your pets don’t know any tricks, you can teach them a few using fun as a disguise.
Some of the basic and easy tricks to teach are “Sit,” “Stay,” “Fetch,” and “Come.” You can use these commands to play fetch or hide and seek. It will make the day even more fun, and playing together will also elevate your bond.
Don’t Forget About Humans.
Last but not least, even if it’s a pet party, you can’t really forget about the humans, a.k.a. Pet parents that are present there. That’s why you have to make arrangements for them as well.
You can order some snacks or cook them on your own. The choice is yours. But make sure that they feel comfortable.
In addition to food and drinks, you can also create a favor bag. It will include some treats, toys, party hats, and of course, some on-the-go snacks for the humans. This gesture will surely impress all the guests as well as the entire squad of your pup.
To Sum It All Up!
All these are some fun and entertaining ideas in which you can celebrate your pet’s birthday. Nonetheless, make sure you dress them well for the day. And also, remember to visit the veterinarian after the celebrations, especially if your furry friend enjoyed the cake way too much.
