A Party for Miley

Miley the Boston Terrier's Agility MACH Party

This weekend was Miley’s first agility trial since she earned her MACH title in Nashville a few weeks ago. It’s customary for the newly crowned champion to have a party in their honor, complete with a MACH cake and all. Since this trial was in our hometown with all of Miley and Kevin’s agility friends, it was the perfect place for a party.

I headed straight over to The Tomkat Studio for party table inspiration. Such a fun blog! She’s got tons of ideas. Here’s how Miley’s setup turned out.

I used the Silhouette to make her MACH banner.

And printed out some custom water-bottle labels.

This is an actual silhouette of Miley, made from a photo of her jumping through a tire during an agility trial.

Since everyone’s running around all day, I tried to keep the menu light and fresh. Here we have Tortilla Club Pinwheels.

These fruit kabobs were the hit of the party! They flew off the plate like popsicles. I don’t think I can ever throw another party without making these again!

Everyone loved the sweet and salty combo of Picky Palate’s White Chocolate Peanut Butter Pretzel Cookies.

The Mighty Meaty Nacho Dip was another hit. Always a favorite!

There were even Milkbones for all the puppies that stopped by.

It wouldn’t be a party without cake! Here’s Miley’s MACH cake. It reads “Congratulations MACH Miley & Kevin!” Half the cake was chocolate and the other half was vanilla.

We set the MACH bar trophy on the table for all the guests to sign.

And had her MACH video playing on a loop on Kevin’s Galaxy Tab, which provided some fun party music. :)

Congrats again, Miley and Kev!

What an adorable party for an adorable pup! I agree about the fruit kebobs. I made those for a family reunion last year and people couldn’t stop raving about them and left all of the fatty salads on the table. As usual, all the stuff you made looks amazing! Congrats Miley and Kevin!

CONGRATS! THANKS FOR SHARING ALL THAT YOU DID! CAN YOU PLEASE TELL US THE RECIPE FOR THE PINWHEELS? WHAT A WONDERFUL THING TO MAKE FOR KIDS AS A SNACK OR SCHOOL LUNCH! I LOVE ALL THAT YOU DID!

Reply

Amanda February 28, 2011 at 11:42 am

Hi Sybil,

Here’s how I did the pinwheels:

1 pkg dry ranch dressing
8 oz cream cheese, softened (I used fat free)
12 slices ham, from deli, thinly sliced
12 slices lacey swiss cheese, from deli, thinly sliced
6 large (burrito style) tortillas

Mix ranch dressing with cream cheese. Spread a layer onto the tortillas. Top with sliced ham and cheese. It works best if you get the ham and cheese from the deli, and they are in that large, half-circle shape, so you can just place two slices on each tortilla and cover the whole thing. Roll up tightly and refrigerate at least one hour (or overnight). Slice into 1-inch bites and serve, or refrigerate until serving. Makes about 36 pinwheels.

Sandy L February 28, 2011 at 9:34 am

You did a great job on the party. I’ve made the fruit kabobs and they are always a hit. They also look great when you stick them in a watermelon shell cut in half with skin side up. You have to be careful making sure the weight is balanced if you use smaller melons or pineapple. Thanks for the great ideas and printables!

Hi Amanda! Love this post…every time you give a link it becomes one of my new favorite websites. I never heard of TomKat so I had a lot of fun there browsing today! :) Also…I tried your Silhouette studio files and all of the them worked well and transfered to my library except the scalloped one. Do you think I’m doing something wrong or could there be a problem with the file? It transfered but it’s blank. Thanks!

That is absolutely precious! Thanks so much for letting us see such a cute party. We lost our two litter mate rotties at the ripe old age of 12 last year (still hurts). We used to have parties for them as well. Our female would have loved having such an elaborate celebration, as she would have felt she deserved it. I really enjoyed seeing Miley! Take care.

IS THE SCALLOPED TRIANGLE COME WITH THE SILHOUETTE IN THE STUDIO FILE OR DID YOU IMPORT IT? I HAVE BEEN SEEING THESE BANNERS EVERYWHERE NOW AND I AM WONDERING WHERE THESE PATTERNS COME FROM. I DO NOT OWN A CUTTING MACHINE AND I AM LOVING WHAT THE SILHOUETTE DOES BUT I REALLY WANT TO LEARN MORE. WOULD YOU MIND CONTACTING ME AT MY EMAIL AND FILLING ME IN ON THE DETAILS. I REALLY WANT TO LEARN HOW TO DO THESE BANNERS AND I DO NOT WANT TO MAKE THE WRONG INVESTMENTS. YOU ARE WONDERFUL TO SHARE SO MUCH WITH US! THANK YOU SWEETIE…

You are so amazingly talented Amanda. Thank you so much for the fonts and the freebies. I have a baby shower this weekend and am so going to use the water bottle labels and menu cards. I’m not sure though how to write inside of them. I was going to print it out and print it out using word and re-insert the labels. If there’s a shortcut please let me know.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. A big congratulatory pat to your furry baby!
