CINCO DE WAFFLES – Waffles 5th Birthday

2nd May 2017

IMG_3619Cinco De Waffles!!

My cute pup Waffles turned 5 on April 22nd, so naturally we had to have a party! Since he was turning 5 and we’re so close to Cinco De Mayo, we decided to do a fun CINCO DE WAFFLES theme. Waffles best friend Batman (dogson of my bestie Olivia) came over and we had a FIESTA!!!

So what are you waiting for, join the party!

This was a last minute party decision, so here’s how you can plan a Cinco De Mayo (or a Cinco De DOGNAMEHERE party for your pet) in 24 hours or less.FullSizeRender 3

The first stop is Party City! You can shop online or in stores, but this is where you’ll get everything you need for your Cinco De _____ Fiesta!FullSizeRender

I invested in Piñatas (lots of Piñatas), table cloths, decor, props, costumes & eating supplies. Since this is a dog party, the main focus was the pups & photo ops – so I always created a DIY backdrop using the table cloths & decor.

I pined two table cloths up with pushpins, to create a photo back drop for the booth! Since puppies were involved, I added a third table cloth and extended it onto the floor. To cover up the top, I expanded these bold tissue paper decals (assemble required here) and added them with push pins over the rough edge. 

Since I ordered sombreros, panchos (for both people and pups), photo booth props, maracas and more – I hung these on the wall for easy access and to make it clear to our guests that you can use them for awesome photos (or boomerangs)FullSizeRender 2

The best part about shopping at Party City is that its a one stop shop for all of your Cinco De Mayo needs, I was able to get nearly everything in one trip making really easy!

For food, we kept it simple. Ordered a bunch of tacos from tacombi and picked up chips and guac! Super easy and better than any food I could make!FullSizeRender 5

    Courtney, as a woman of color I think you should have known better than to wear stereotypical sombreros for cinco de mayo. Anyways, look up Francheska Ramsey’s Decoded Episode on Cinco de Mayo… she does a great job at explaining why its appropriation and why we should find other ways to celebrate.
