What could be better than Halloween costume shopping for your dog? How about getting a sneak peak at the newest Halloween costumes and fall outfits from Petsmart?! Yes, yours truly was invited to preview the newest Halloween costumes, fall Ellen Degeneres by Petsmart collection and Petsmart fall toys and accessories. You have no idea how much fun we had, but I will do my best to share it all with you.
The Petsmart fall launch party was held in New York City. Generally, we only go up to New York City for Fashion Week and now Comic Con, but when Petsmart invited us to this exclusive fall preview party, we knew we had to go. I had been wanting to attend one of these parties for so long! You might have seen the Petsmart launch parties on the Petsmart Instagram page or by watching their live videos and stories. I can personally guarantee you that they are just as much fun in person as they look on video.
Let’s get the party started!
For this launch party, Petsmart rented out a Penthouse in Manhattan. The Penthouse was two floors of fun. The upstairs was where we were initially greeted and where Petsmart had all the costumes, clothing, beds and toys on display for the press.
The bottom floor was reserved for drinks, treats, taking photos and mingling among the guests. The bottom floor is also where your dog was able to try on different costumes and clothing. Yes, we got to take these costumes home! 🙂 Of course, I had to get a Batman costume for Bruce Wayne. The Petsmart one that he had been wearing was becoming snug on him, so luckily, I was able to get it for him in a larger size. While “shopping”, I also was able to get a Superman, Spiderman and Thor costume. You know, in case Bruce Wayne wants to play dressup! 😉 I also picked up some Ed by Ellen Degeneres shirts. Bruce Wayne didn’t have anything from this cute collection, so I was happy to be able to grab some shirts in his size.
During the party, Bruce Wayne participated in a grooming showcase. While partygoers mingled downstairs, Bruce Wayne was whisked away to go back upstairs and have his tail chalked. What’s chalking? Color chalking is part of Petsmart’s Pet Expression Grooming options. This service is offered both as a walk-in service or a pre-booked grooming service. In short, your groomer will use non-toxic coloring “chalk” to “dye” your dog’s fur. Since this was a fall launch party, Bruce Wayne received a candy corn colored tail. While this isn’t something we would do everyday, it is a fun option for game days, celebrations or holidays.
There were so many celebrity “Instafamous” dogs in attendance. If a dog was at this party, you know that they had some form of social media presence. One of our favorite friends to see when we head up to NYC is @Tinkerbellethedog. We had a lot of fun dressing Bruce Wayne and Tinkerbelle up in their Batman and Batgirl costumes as you can see below.
The Fall Collection …..
I cannot express how cute the Petsmart fall collection is! Because I am biased, my favorite pieces without a doubt were the Batman costume and t-shirt. I had never purchased any of the Ed by Petsmart pieces, but as you can see below, they are adorable pieces that are a must have for any dog’s wardrobe. Seeing all the girl’s clothing really made me wish I had a female dog to dress up. I mean come on, how could you not love the dresses?!
We were also in love with all the fall themed toys Petsmart had for viewing. If you follow us on Instagram and watch our stories, you know that Bruce Wayne loves cat toys! Since he’s a small dog, cat toys are usually a perfect size for him. Petsmart also unveiled their fun football themed toys, which make for adorable Sunday photo props.
Overall, we had a great time at our first Petsmart launch party! We hope you enjoyed our behind the scenes all-access sneak peak. Hopefully, we will be invited back to another launch party and can share the fun and clothing collections with you all again. Everything shown in our photos is now available at Petsmart. So what are you waiting for?! Time to get shopping! 🙂
