Is your child a dog lover? Then how about we show you How to Throw a great Lassie Themed birthday party! The key is making it fun for everyone, including dogs. Here’s how:
1) Invite Lassie
Invite guests to bring their pooches with – if this won’t cause too much chaos – and to dress them up, if their dog is the sort that likes that kind of thing. It’s okay if none of them own sheepdogs, but if they do, that’s a bonus!
2) Have A Picnic
Picnics are a great way to serve food, and a beautiful sunny day begs for picnic blankets and pillows. Maybe scrap the pillows if you feel the dogs will just run them over. Having a picnic is a way to continue interaction with the animals and kids alike. Food can be laid out on a picnic table – to avoid being chomped by the dogs – and then guests can take to the lawn for a leisurely lunch. Salads and sandwiches, some grilled steak kebabs, and chips are great picnic options, with some hot dogs or corndogs for any dog, or human, that wants them, and peanut butter cups. Dogs like peanut butter! Have doggie biscuits for the furry guests and plenty of water bowls.
3) Decorate With Newspaper, Bones and other Dog-Themed Items.
The good las Kara, from Kara’s Party Ideas has done varieties of dog-themed parties and will definitely be able to assist with your Lassie themed décor, if you want to involve a professional.
4) Play Fetch, Have Doggie Races and Other Dog Themed Games
Get the pooches involved in the festivities. See who’s the fastest dog – and owner! – with doggie races, playing fetch with the kids, four-legged races and musical dog beds – this is like musical chairs, but the kids use dog beds, or blankets if you don’t have enough dog beds, and they have to scurry around on all fours. Yombu’s professional entertainers are available for games and other entertainment services, including child minding, in order that your event runs smoothly.
5) Lassie Invitations
