My son turned four(already?)! He is a Paw Patrol fan, so we had a Paw Patrol Party upon his request! We did not have lots of time to plan this time, but still had a pretty awesome party!
We traveled to the States over the December holidays and I bought a few things(decor, plates, serviettes, party favors/novelty toys etc.)from Walmart. (See below for Amazon options.) We don’t get as much Paw Patrol things here you see, and if you do, it is very expensive.
So, for decor, I mainly used that together with blue, red, green and yellow balloons. We had to do Plan B(inside), because it rained the whole weekend?, so we used our playroom to set up the kiddies party table. The kids each got a “Doggy Bag” with their party favours and sweets, masks and cold drinks. We had mini hot dogs as well. There were “dog biscuits” and “dog food” in the dog bowls on the table too!
The cake. That was a mission! Not the cake itself but the tower! I baked two layers of my favourite white cake, and froze it overnight. It was covered with chocolate cream cheese frosting together with some green frosting aka “grass”, mini M&M’s(spelled the name) and Paw Patrol figures.
Then, I constructed a tower with plastic ware and covered it with gum paste(yellow, blue, white) and plastic icing(red) only because I could not get red gum paste. The gum paste was supposed to harden, but it did not, so a few hours later it started to sag. I had it in the fridge and maybe the condensation made it sag, who knows?
The white part of the tower was Rice Krispies Treat. We had to blow the candles when the party started because my structure was not that good and it started to resemble the Tower of Pisa! Oops! I’ll admit I am no professional decorator!
We ordered a jumping castle which we could not use due to the rain and the other party games(doggy ball catch and chasing game) did not happen since it was also meant for outside. But, the kids entertained themselves and had a blast in any case. I always wonder what will the next theme be, whatever story is trending I suppose…
