Event Showcase | A Pet-friendly Puppy Shower
Warning – this blog contains cuteness on an unprecedented level for the events industry.
We don’t often get cute, adorable events landing on our desktop, but when our friends at The Residences Centennial Park told us about a Puppy Shower they hosted recently, well, we thought – now that’s something a bit different and definitely worth featuring!
As an industry around fur babies booms and people look to include their beloved pets in their birthday parties, weddings and special occasions, so too does the need to find venues that allow pets to attend.
And in some cases, the pets are not simply attending, but the event is being held in their honour!
Pet Parties and Puppy Showers are all the rage… well, in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney at least…
Let’s take a closer look at a unique event held for puppies and their humans…
Bob’s Puppy Shower
Private courtyard at The Rangers Residence (One of two properties for hire at The Residences Centennial Park Sydney can are completely pet-friendly indoors and out).
To celebrate the family growing by one fur-baby!
The Guest List
All furry friends and their humans
What is a puppy shower?
A puppy shower is a fun way of introducing your new fur-baby to your nearest and dearest. Channel the love-fest you have for your pet and invite prospective furry friends and their humans, along with the usual pet-less friends and family to celebrate.
Style an afternoon with pet-friendly doggie treats, dog activities and food for the humans.
For this event the family loved the chance to plan a special event for their now favourite family member. It’s not every day the family grows by plus one fur-ball.
What makes the residences a pet-friendly venue?
The Residence at Centennial Park consists of two private homes that can be hired for private events or overnight stays – The Rangers Residence and The Superintendent’s Residence.
Each Residence offers a secure and private courtyard and pets are permitted in the homes as well. The venues are located in Sydney’s famous Centennial Park which provides access to acres of off-leash area, dog-friendly cafes and grooming services. It’s one of Sydney’s few truly pet-friendly venues.
What other events can pets be invited to?
Pets are welcome to attend any event at The Residences. Choose to have the pet dog as a ring bearer at the wedding ceremony and then scurry under tables at the reception. Share any celebrations from weddings, milestone birthdays, kids parties, or staycations with the beloved pet in tow.
