Furry Tails and Cocktails with Santa

Welcome to Grandson Date Night!
Tonight it's Furry Tails & Cocktails
with Santa.
 Okay maybe we're not having cocktails
but rather hot chocolate in our
Santa mugs.
 This table was inspired by these
adorable doggie and Santa paper napkins.
 Using this cookies for Santa plate
and my set of Scotty and Westie mugs
for a centerpiece kept it easy
and boy friendly.
I also sprinkled a few
dog trinket dishes around.

 We served BowWow BBQ sandwiches & Pawtato chips
for dinner.  Afterwards we visited a local
pet store to pick out a gift for our grand dog!
 I ordered dogs from Amazon
similar to the animals I used 
however this was an epic fail
because they were teeny tiny!
 This familiar
paper check runner & red paper plates
were also used in the Country Christmas table.
 We all need to keep things simple during
the holidays & not changing
out the entire table is an easy way to do that.
 I also reused my plaid flatware,

 red sparkle balls & mini light up
Christmas trees!
 I actually planned this whole table 
at the end of last Christmas around my dog
Madison, but sadly she is not with us this year.
 It's a ruff life for these tiny
plastic dogs because they hit the trash
as soon as we were finished.
 I have collected these set of four
Santa mugs from Pottery Barn for several years
along with my collection of vintage Santa mugs.
I feel better about using the new ones for
beverages plus they are 
dishwasher safe & can be easily replaced 
if an accident happens.
Furry tails and cocktails is also a great entertaining
idea to gather with furry friends & their owners for 
cocktails and appetizers or cookies and cocoa before or after a group trip
to a local pet fundraiser or pictures with Santa 
this holiday season.
