Before we know it, the Big Game will be here. Oh sure, lots of people will be watching the football game. But the cutest game takes place BEFORE the AFC and NFC division champs take to the field. Rescue puppies will be participating in the Puppy Bowl. And that’s what we are celebrating in this styled shoot! Thanks to Alice G Patterson, my sister, favorite photographer, and incredible springboard, for helping me create this little Puppy Bowl party. We even came up with a great idea to raise some funds for a local rescue.

Our menu included: chips and Pico de gallo, winter fruit salad, potato salad, Gardein chick’n sliders (I swear it takes like…. you guessed, it chicken!), cupcakes, as well as Moscow mules and soda. Everything we made is vegan and delicious!
Of course, no Puppy Bowl party would be complete without dog treats!
We thought doggy bags would be in order too.
Giving back to a favorite cause is always a good idea, so we came up with a fun way to raise some funds.
Asking everyone to donate and vote for their favorite team is an easy way to raise money for a rescue organization. We opted to use envelopes to take the donations and serve as a ballot.
Once everyone votes, put all the ballots in a bowl and draw out a winner. One of the guests will take the prize. All of the money is given to a rescue group.
If you have someone as cute as Darla selecting the winner, it means you are fortunate indeed!
