Hot Diggity Dog! Check out how the talented Lauren Haddox of Lauren Haddox Design turned an All-American favorite into this super fun Retro Hot Dog Party…which also happened to be a surprise party for her husband! I love the down-home picnic vibe — red gingham, bottled beer and royal icing condiment bottle cookies — love it. And what man could resist their very own hot dog bar?! I’d go for the West Coast Dog — naturally. ;)

PARTY HIGHLIGHTS to look out for:

  • You’ll do a double-take for the incredible Hot Dog Cake!
  • Rustic Wooden Pallets, Honeycomb Lanterns and Burlap Pennant Flags
  • Make-it-Yourself Hot Dog Bar featuring a poster-sized Menu trimmed with fringe!
  • “Lucky Dog” Candy Wrappers and amazing Hot Dog Themed Sugar Cookies

PARTY DETAILS, as told by Lauren

My husband loves hot dogs but he doesn’t love birthday parties… birthday parties for himself. :) I knew if I was ever going to throw him a party it was going to have to be a surprise party! So a hot dog themed surprise party is what went down!! I set up a hot dog bar with tons of fixings and designed cute signs so everyone would know what to put together… Chili Cheese, American, West Coast, New Yorker, etc. I used a wooden palette to hang the hot dog menu. Red checkered tissue liners gave a pop of color to the paper plates and wooden forks were the perfect touch. Bright yellow sunflowers were on each table and plenty of roasted peanuts were tossed around for snacking. We had baked beans and crunchy coleslaw to go with the dogs.

Sweet Elizabeth made the most realistic looking hot dog cake EVER and it was absolutely delicious!! I had a little candy bar set up with whoppers, sour cherrys, yellow taffy, chocolate covered peanuts… anything I could find that was red, yellow or brown.

I strung hot dogs together to make a banner and had plenty of honeycomb and paper lanterns to make festive.

Lacey Rabalais took all the pictures and she did such a fabulous job capturing all the details!

    I am looking for the little cardboard/paper red checkered tray and wrap like pictured above with hotdog. Can you tell me where those items can be purchased other than paper vendors that want 1,000 plus quantity in an order?
    Thank you
