We’re big fans of dogs. In fact, we recently wrote about ways to include your dog in your special event. But if we love at our pets like they’re a part of the family, why don’t we celebrate them a little bit more? Today, we’re giving you all the details of the fluffiest birthday bash you’ll ever see right here in Scottsdale, Arizona.
Arie Luyendyk & Lauren Burnham are no strangers to celebrations of a larger nature. Having met on Arie’s season of The Bachelor, which is all about making strong connections in a short amount of time in beautiful, thought out moments, they’re used to extravagant stylized events. But, they are also super down to earth and are just as obsessed with their pets as you probably are with yours.
When we were first contacted about doing a couple of different balloon installations for their puppy party, we were excited about a couple of different things. 1. We love The Bachelor — no shame in our reality tv dating show game. 2. A puppy party with DOGS EVERYWHERE? Yeah… there is nothing better and 3. A colorful balloon installation with oranges, yellows and teals to really ‘brighten’ up the space – we were sold. Make the venue The Scott Resort as the location and you’ve basically described our perfect day. One of the things we love the most about The Scott Resort is their design elements that are easily transformed to go with different styles. The entire resort had a major facelift and it is not one of the most popular places for photography, events and staycations. With The Canal Club on location and the most peaceful pool to unwind, it is no wonder people are flocking around to treat themselves to a little stay. So when Arie & Lauren shared they’re event was at The Scott Resort, we couldn’t have been more excited.
The entire party was themed around their pups. They invited their friends to come out and bring their dogs to enjoy the fun. There were dog toys, dog treats and so many little details that truly made this event over the top and so much fun to be a part of. We had a blast making the install and hope we get the opportunity to work with them both again in the future.
