Go, Dog, Go! Book-Themed Boy’s Birthday Party
This amazing book-themed boys birthday party is like stepping right into Dr. Seuss Go, Dog, Go! A childhood favorite of Chantelle, of Dolled Up Design, and also her sons enthusiasm for it, made this an excellent choice for a party theme. Carefully coordinating the bright colors from the book, she brought it to life with DIY decorations, a delicious menu, and fun favors. This exciting celebration is full of dont-miss details, so go, go, GO to see how it all came together!

My favorite parts of this party are the whimsical scene recreations on the food table! A tree is crafted from a candle holder, a round platter, and tissue. The green frosting on the tree cupcakes was essential, but careful placement of the paper dogs brought pages from the book to life! Wooden cars with hand-sculpted clay dogs at the wheel zoom by a scrumptious lunch, with big dogs and little dogs (regular-sized and mini hot dogs) with all the fixings and stoplight fruit on the menu. Personalized drink cups meant every little dog knew which drink belonged to him. Striped and polka dotted paper plates and napkins look just right alongside theme-colored photo frames labeling menu items. On such a busy table, a white tablecloth and a simple striped table runner, plus white dishware, keep it looking nice and uncluttered.
This giant book is actually blank canvases covered with enlarged images! Camdens favorite puppy, with his tiny party hat and copy of Go, Dogs, Go, is a nice touch. Decorating with balloons on sticks, instead of helium balloons, is a much neaterand longer lastingeffect.
Big dogs AND little dogs love a candy buffet! A green striped table runner, pretty pinwheels, and shiny party hats made this table look good enough to eat! Guests helped themselves with small plastic tongs and loaded sweets into mini takeout containers.
Big dog Camden was very happy that everyone came to share his special day. He thanked guests with paw-fect party favors: little dog-shaped boxes filled with Play-Doh and dog-and bone-shaped cookie cutters.
As an avid reader who loves to promote literacy, I know that beloved characters and memorable scenes become more significant (to parents AND children) with time spent reading togetherit made this event special for both mother and son. Whether your son is crazy about Go, Dog, Go or ANY dog book, this event is full of great ideas for planning your own book-themed boys birthday party.
