Wayfair: Dinner & a Movie at Home

Wayfair: Dinner & a Movie at Home

Disclaimer: The folks over at Wayfair were kind enough to sponsor this post. All opinions in the post are mine. 

It’s that time of year! When staying indoors and watching a movie (or Netflix) with your family is just the best way to spend your weekends and weeknights! So today, I want to share with you our Dinner & A Movie essentials for a relaxing evening at home.

Exercise

As far as this blog is concerned everything we do is for our pets. Therefore, before you decide that you are going to have a nice quiet evening at home with your family, you should make sure that your pet has already met their exercise requirement for the day. At least in our house, there is no way Rooney will be quiet and relaxed for 2 hours unless he has already been on a walk (or two!) that day. Additionally, I find that I am much more relaxed when I have exercised earlier in the day as well.

Blankets & Pillows

I love blankets. I never relax at home without a blanket. If you have followed this blog for a while, you know that Rooney also loves blankets and often tries to steal mine (lol!). If you are preparing for a dinner and movie night at home, you will want to bring some extra blankets and dog beds into the living room so that everyone is cozy. Rooney REALLY loves a Cozy cave, like the one below from Wayfair.

Additionally, I have discovered that Rooney loves faux fur blankets and pillows almost as much as I do. Even if faux fur is not your style, I definitely recommend purchasing some pillows that are soft to add some extra comfort to your movie night!

Snacks

No movie night is complete without snacks, especially popcorn. Wayfair has this awesome micro-pop popcorn popper that I would love to have at home. Additionally, due to the lack of tables in our bonus room, we need trays for snacks and dinner (which on a movie night is usually Pizza). These marble trays from Wayfair are super cute and would go perfectly in our bonus room.

Of course, we can’t forget about snacks for Rooney. Whenever we are relaxing at home we give him a Benebone. Rooney loves the flavor of Benebones and they help keep his teeth clean!
