Pup-tastic Treats and Snacks
Just like the Paw Patrol crew, you want your guests to be well-fed and satisfied. Treat them to delightful snacks and treats that keep the theme alive.
Paw-shaped cookies, cupcakes with puppy toppers, and dog bone-shaped sandwiches will surely delight the taste buds.
How about “Pupcorn” served in Paw Patrol-themed popcorn boxes? For a sweet touch, consider a Paw Patrol cake featuring the iconic lookout tower or the team’s badge.

Decor that Wags the Tail
