Pretty paper options
So long as the invites are in keeping with the mood of a whine and cheese party–sophisticated and elegant–you can pick any design you’d like. There are plenty of pre-made cards that have a dog theme, or you can always make your own. Accent the cards with a small bone-shaped treat, tied with a pretty ribbon.
Don’t forget to add your dog’s name to the “hosted by” line, and if he insists, allow him to include his own paw print signature.
Some doggy daycare facilities allow you to rent their space for just such an event. If you’re able to do so, however, DogTime recommends you host the party at home. When else does Fido have the chance to show off his favorite marking spots and secret tennis ball hiding places?
The guest list
Limit your human invitees to those who can roll with whatever the mixing of pooch and pleasure might bring. If there’s a chance she’ll be upset by the Retriever puppy peeing on her Manolo Blahniks, or the Saint Bernard knocking over her glass of merlot, leave her off the list.
It’s as if cocktail hour was invented with the whine and cheese party in mind. Dogs are at their most alert during dusk, making 5 to 7 p.m. the prime time for both species to gather for eats, drinks, and revelry.
As with all dog parties, keep it short and sweet. Your motto: maximize wine, minimize whine.
