Paw Patrol Birthday Party Ideas
by Nina SpearsThe Baby Chick
My son doesn’t really like to sit and watch much television, which I am thankful for, but there is one show that he loves . . . Paw Patrol. There’s something about puppies in cool trucks doing neat tricks and solving problems that gets him every time. With his second birthday approaching, I knew that a Paw Patrol themed birthday party would be a huge hit. And it was! He seemed to love every bit of it and so did his little friends. I noticed that all of the kids were big Paw Patrol fans too! With all of this popularity, I wanted to share all of the amazing products and companies that we found that have some of the best Paw Patrol items for birthday parties. Here’s what we got.
I wanted to let our guests know exactly what kind of party it was going to be, a Paw Patrol birthday party. 🙂 We got this party invitation, which is too cute, and had it personalized with Liam’s name and party information. It also came with complimentary thank you tags–each with a different Paw Patrol character. I also ordered these thank you cards to send out to our guests for all the sweet gifts that they got for our birthday boy. All of these items are sent as digital download files and I went to our local print shop and had them printed and cut.
Pick a Location
When deciding where we wanted to host our son’s birthday party I decided that I did not want it to be at our house. We did that last year and I didn’t want to have to clean up my home afterward. haha! Our son loves going to the Park, especially Levy Park, so we knew it would be a perfect fit for the party.
Levy Park has so many amazing events planned throughout the month that are perfect for the whole family to enjoy. You can check their calendar to see what’s coming up! What I love is that they have a family pavilion area specifically for birthday parties that you can reserve for three hours for your little one. It’s located in their children’s park so your guests can easily come in and out from enjoying the park to celebrating with you!
The children’s park is open to the rest of the public, which I don’t mind since I think that just adds to the energy. They also have a water section so if it’s extra hot, bring a swimsuit!
I’m all about making a statement and got several signs for our little guy’s birthday party.
This door sign from Phases of Love on Etsy is a great sign to place on your front door or at the entrance of your party to let your guests know where the party’s at!
Another sign that we got was this personalized Paw Patrol logo. I just had to, y’all. 🙂 This is also a digital download that you receive once you order and then you have printed. I think it’s a great statement piece that you can hang as a backdrop on a wall or wherever you want. We left ours on a white thick board, but you can also print it on something thinner and cut around it. I love this logo!
Another sign that I got was this Paw Patrol chalkboard sign. I wanted to show our friends and family how much our little man has grown list last year and share what some of his favorite things are. This is also a digital download that you can have printed. I also got this frame from Target for the chalkboard sign. This way I can re-use the frame for other chalkboard signs or pieces of my son’s future artwork.
At any party there is usually a place where the food and beverages are. We decided to make this our focal point of the party.
Levy Park gives you two tables with tablecloths when you reserve the family pavilion so I knew that was exactly where we were going to put the food and drinks.
I got this 7′ x 5′ Paw Patrol party backdrop to make the party stand out. (You can also get it personalized with your child’s name if you prefer, but I wanted to be able to reuse this banner in the future if we ever did another Paw Patrol themed party.) We weren’t allowed to tape anything on the walls at Levy Park or use balloons so I believe this backdrop made the party decor come to life! I got this backdrop stand to hold up the banner. It was easy to assemble and perfect for the party.
On the table on the right side we had all of the beverages, water bottles (with these cute custom water bottle labels), orange juice, and a gallon of coffee. (We had our party in the morning which I believe is a perfect time of day! It allows your guests to enjoy the rest of their weekend day and it’s before nap time!)
I then had donut holes, kolaches, and an egg and ham casserole breakfast dish ready for our hungry guests. My son loves donuts so we had to spoil him on his special day. I thought that the donut holes looked like they could be dog food so I bought some dog bowls from the dollar store and served them in there with this really cute cake topper. 🙂
And on the front of the tables, I also had this Paw Patrol happy birthday banner. You could also string this along the wall above where your little one sits to blow out the candles!
The most popular item on our table was the birthday cake! This adorable two-tiered buttercream birthday cake made everyone’s eyes light up. 🙂 Main Made Cake & Cupcakes made it for us and it was so moist and delicious. The kids kept wanting to take the Paw Patrol figurines off the cake to play with them so they were a big hit too!
Okay, these Paw Patrol custom t-shirts are my favorite! I sized me tee up to a Medium and am glad that I did because I didn’t want to wear something tight while chasing around my toddler on the playground. They were comfortable and so cute! You knew who the birthday boy was and who the parents were. I recommend them!
There were several round tables for parents to sit at and we had several long rectangular children’s tables. We got all of the children’s tables together and placed these fun Paw Patrol felt masks, a fire hydrant cup, and bubbles for each kid’s place setting. These are great favors for them to take with them!
These masks are incredibly well made and all of the kids loved them! They especially enjoyed it when parents put them on. 🙂
The kids also really liked the fire hydrant cups. They were a great way to make sure they stayed hydrated out in the sun.
With everyone documenting every experience, I thought it would be fun to have a custom Snapchat Geofilter for the party. I got this one from OwlFilter on Etsy. They made it so simple and easy to order and set up. Our guests had a good time adding that to their stories too. 🙂
And after everyone has enjoyed the party and a slice of cake, it’s time to say goodbye. But before everyone leaves we had these great Paw Patrol party favor boxes for us, little guests. Seriously though . . . could they be any cuter?! I think not!
Inside our party favor boxes we had these Paw Patrol favor set, these bubbles, these paw print crayons and we filled baggies with Reese’s puffs cereal (since it looked like dog food) and added these treat bag toppers. A great thank you for all the amazing people that celebrated your little one.
