I’m not going to lie, this next party has me completely and totally entertained. A party for your dogs? Now I’ve seen everything (and I’m loving every inch of it). Not only is this party specifically designed for your four-legged friends – and coined a “Boston Tea Party” to boot – it’s also inspired by none other than Kate Spade (but of course!) Designed and styled by the talented The Stylish Soiree, and captured by Milou & Olin, there’s more doggy heaven right here in the gallery.
From Yelena of the Stylish Soiree…
The inspiration for this shoot came from a couple of wedding vendors who happen to all love dogs. Always looking for more fun ways to be creative (and also celebrate our love for our four legged best friends), The Stylish Soiree and Milou and Olin Photography teamed up and decided to create a Kate Spade inspired doggie birthday party – a Boston Tea Party, to be exact. With bold, poppy Kate Spade colors and the brand’s signature stripes, we brought the Boston Terrier Tea Party Birthday to life.
On the tablescape, bright pink dog bowls rest on green frisbee ‘chargers’, gilded dog bones serve as favors, and a big doggie dessert table is filled with dog treats from the amazing dog bakery Le Marcel.
Tables and other rentals by One True Love Vintage Rentals and Blueprint Studios were set at the perfect height for a pup to nibble off of, Soulflower Floral Design created bright beautiful blooms with stick accents to appeal to the pups, and the pooches themselves were dressed up in snazzy, colorful collars courtesy of two wonderful Etsy sellers, BigPawCollars and LADogStore.
Kohl Mansion provided the perfect backdrop with gorgeous indoor and outdoor spaces, the models were styled by Q the Stylist with hair and makeup by Sarah Nicole Makeup. In the end, I’m not sure who had the most fun – us creating this shoot, or the dogs who got to nibble on Le Marcel’s treats all day!
