Planning birthday parties are one of my favorite things to do. I love personalizing small details to make the perfect party, and it’s so easy with my Cricut Maker. Using a variety of materials, I created this Paw Patrol Inspired Puppy Birthday Party full of DIY ideas to plan an easy birthday party for your kids! And if they like Paw Patrol or Puppy Dog Pals, I’m going to show you how to make an adorable party with a modern feel that can be translated into DIY ideas for different kids birthday party themes!
My two youngest kids (they’re 3 and 1) are obsessed with Paw Patrol and Puppy Dog Pals. So when I was tasked with designing a party using my Cricut Maker, I knew exactly what I was going to do. The ideas in this puppy party can be used for generic puppy birthday party ideas, or can easily be used in addition to Paw Patrol or Puppy Dog pals party supplies to create a more character-based party. And they can also be used for a either a boy or girl party depending on the colors you choose to use. I love the bold look of the primary colors, though!

From puppy cake decorations, party decor, plates, napkins, to puppy party favors, you can make them all! I used a variety of Cricut cutting materials to personalize every aspect of this party. Choose the projects that you like, and try to make them for your next party!
