A few weeks before your dog party, be sure to scout out a secure location in the nearby park. Choose a spot that has ample dog roaming space and plenty of picnic tables. If the locale is hidden from the park entrance, make signs or maps notifying guests of the party spot. Paw printed balloons, clear plastic glasses, cherry red tablecloths and paper plates set the scene for an outdoor fete. Pack the food in red take out containers printed with white dog bones.

As guests arrive with their pooches, point them in the direction of the dog bowls and hand them a fun dog face party blower. Make or purchase a large Happy Birthday Oliver sign and hang from two trees, a jungle gym, or on the edge of a table. Store the drinks in lovely drink dispensers and adorn the tables with arrangements of red gerber daisies. For music, create a playlist of songs that have lyrics about dogs like "Bad To The Bone," as well as classic rap hits by Snoop Dogg, Nate Dog, and Little Bow Wow.
