1- Because she will totally let me plan it.
2- Because everyone 1 year old needs a party!
3- Could a puppy theme be ANY cuter for a baby whose first words were dada and dog? Don't worry, Kristen is totally down. Well, I am not sure she wants to send invites (who do you invite to a 1st birthday party that you wouldn't just call?), but they are just soooo cute, I don't know how she couldn't!!! Here is what I have found. Seriously. So. Cute. (Sidenote, check out this website. These invites are freaking adorable.)
Foodwise, I am thinking "puppy chow" and puppy cupcakes (click the link...they make these look so easy)! I mean, these are so cute too. It is like the perfect combo - something miniature, a cupcake and dogs. Heaven.
