Puppy Party.

Puppy Party | Kiki's ListThis year, Lou wanted to have a puppy party.  Not just any puppy party, but a party with actual puppies.  Luckily, our friends at A Forever Home were willing and able to help us out with this lovable little bunch. Puppy Party | Kiki's List

Adorable, right?  These four were hard to resist, but at the risk of becoming a crazy dog lady, I had to stick to my guns.  The girls worked me-  but I stayed strong.  Of course, I would take them all if I could, but I think two dogs is the limit for our family.Puppy Party | Kiki's List

This party was all about puppy love.  I ordered custom printables from Itsy Belle.  Christy was great to work with-  she even custom designed everything to include our girls, Bailey and Lola!Puppy Party | Kiki's ListSee Lola on the left and Bail on the right-  she even has a grey beard just like our old girl!   I was so proud of Anna who wanted to ask for donations for the puppies in lieu of gifts.Puppy Party | Kiki's List  Luckily, it was a nice day, so we were able to use the backyard.  The LOVE sign was a last-minute addition, I thought it was perfect!

We scattered pictures of the girls and their furry sisters around- perfect solution for an inexpensive centerpiece!  The frames are Ikea Ribba.Puppy Party | Kiki's ListLou wanted hot dogs, so we had a hot dog bar.  I bought these hot dog bags and fed them through the printer using the template from Itsy Belle.Puppy Party | Kiki's ListPuppy Party | Kiki's ListPuppy Party | Kiki's ListWhat’s a party without a piñata?Puppy Party | Kiki's ListThe birthday girl had a great day.

I am happy to report that all four of these pups have found their forever home, but new animals are brought in daily,  Please consider adopting, and make sure to have your pets spayed and neutered. A Forever Home a non-profit organization that helps animals in need.  Of course, there are always opportunities to volunteer or donate.  Thank you to A Forever Home and all of the rescue organizations out there for saving so many animals that otherwise would have no chance. 🐶❤️

Best Faux Plants.

If you’re anything like me, you have trouble keeping plants alive. I’ve tried everything from fiddle leafs to orchids and I can’t keep any of them alive. Fret no more- artificial plants are so much more than they used to be. I often use them in my designs for clients who also have a black thumb. Here are a few of my favorites.
