Why not throw your beloved pooch a party to celebrate the holiday season? Here are decorating ideas for the perfect "paw-ty."
Unbreakable buffet: This isn't the time to break out fine china. Instead, look for sturdy but stylish melamine and plastic dishware. String shatterproof teal and blue orbs on a floral wire for an easy DIY ornament garland. Hang it above the treat table and well out of reach of the guests' paws.
Custom treats: There are so many gourmet options available at most pet stores, but why not mix it up by making some of your own? Not only are homemade treats fresher, healthier options, they also allow you to limit your pet's sugar and salt intake.
Flavorful favors: Package rawhide disks in glassine bags; let the pet parents give them to their four-legged friends after the party.
Special bow-tie favors: Instead of party hats, which are hard to keep from sliding off dogs, purchase bow ties for the male dogs and hair bows for the females. Tie one on each four-legged guest as they come in to the party.
Chew on this: Provide ample chew toys and tennis balls to keep furry guests occupied during the party.
Doggy bags: Pin black-and-white treat bags along a clothesline with a copy of the invitation. The stripes add a pop of pattern to the party, and serve as to-go containers for the extra treats
