Puppy Party Snacks: Ruff-age Veggie Cups and Water Bowl Jello

My sweet Stella Rose turned one this past April and since she loves puppy dogs we decided to throw her a Puppy Party! I wanted to provide lunch and it was a kid filled event so I created a puppy themed menu. Two of the biggest hits off the menu were the Ruff-age Veggie Cups and the Water Bowl Jello
Stella sure had a great time at her Puppy Party! 
In honor of the movie, The Secret Life of Pets coming out this weekend, I am sharing these two fun puppy themed party recipes with y'all! I know your kiddos will love them as much as Stella and her party guests did! 
Comment below and let me know what you think of this hilarious movie. We have been dying to see The Secret Life of Pets since we first saw the preview for it last year! So you better believe we are going to see it today, on opening day! 

Scroll down for a The Secret Life of Pets recipe and craft roundup!

  1. Pour 2 tbsp ranch dressing in the bottom of each cup.

  3. Serve right away or place in the fridge for the party later in the day.

  • 3oz box blue Jell-o

  1. Makes Jell-o according to box directions {whisking in boiling water to powder mix then add cold water}.
  2. Pour into cups, filling about 1/3 way.
  3. Place in the fridge for the required time until set.

Any flavor blue Jell-o works. 
Ava chose Berry Blue for this recipe. 
Makes Jell-o according to box directions.
Start by whisking in boiling water to powder mix.

I like to transfer to a measuring cup for easy pouring.

At party time, serve with spoons and watch them disappear!
You can buy separate veggies or save prep time by 
using a small store bought veggie platter. 
Pour 2 tbsp ranch dressing in the bottom of each cup.
Add 3 pieces of celery, 3 carrots, 2 tomatoes, and a few broccoli florets to the cup. 
Serve right away or place in the fridge for the party later in the day.

These would be great for serving at a pool party, cookout, or even a 
The Secret Life of Pets themed party!

  4. I love your party ideas! This is a great way to have a blast and still stay healthy. My nephew’s 7th birthday is coming up a week from now and this is an excellent party theme. Those Veggie cups are yummy and since I’m doing the 3 Day Military Diet, those party foods are so diet friendly. I think you’re the only Mom who thought of serving veggies in a party! If you want to know about the Military diet and maybe do a quick review of it for all your readers like me, here’s a good resource link http://3daysmilitarydiet.com/effect/what-is-the-military-diet.html
