“Mommy, can we please get a dog?”

It’s the question Martha Stewart Weddings editorial director Darcy Miller kept getting from her young daughter, Pippa. Getting a dog wasn’t an option, so Miller threw her baby girl a birthday party – with a puppy theme.

From the dog-faced balloons to the bone-shaped pi ata, all the way down to the pooch cake pops and the doggie bag favors, Miller made sure that every detail tied back to the puppy theme. She shares her tips with The Martha Stewart Show in Thursday’s episode, which also includes a puppy cupcake decorating tutorial, a poodle skirt dressmaking session with designer Lela Rose and tips from Petkeeping host Marc Marrone.

PEOPLEPets.com was in the studio for the paw-ty action, and while the pups and the children in the audience enjoyed the festivities, we think Martha herself was having the best time. Her dogs Francesca, Sharkey and G.K., who were hanging out at rehearsal before the show, also seemed to enjoy the puppy goodies.

Get all of Martha’s puppy party ideas on The Martha Stewart Show, airing at 10 a.m. ET on Thursday, April 21 on the Hallmark Channel.
