AS THE PANDEMIC MADE ABUNDANTLY CLEAR, SOME OF OUR GREATEST ALLIES WERE OF THE PET VARIETY. HOW COULD WE NOT MAKE THEM STARS OF OUR SPECIAL 10TH ANNIVERSARY REIGNITION EDITION? MY PARTNER IN BRINGING THIS FUR FEATURE TO LIFE, TASTEMAKER/LENSER CARRIE M., CARRIES US AWAY (IN THE BEST WAY) …

TIPS & TRICKS FOR THE ULTIMATE FUR FETE …
For an opulent venue as pleasing to pets as their people, the Grand Salon at Montreal’s Maison Principale is elegant pawfection. Think Bridgerton vibes with a modern twist.
For florals so jawdroppingly over-the-top stunning you’ll want to have mini-versions delivered weekly, luxe floral designer Alain Simon Fleurs is your man.
What to serve? How about customized cookies courtesy of Montreal’s cookie queen YES PLEASE, who recently launched her much-anticipated companion doggie line PAWS, PLEASE.
As for swills, no pedigreed party for Social Gals and their fave tailwaggers would be complete without a proper champagne pairing like Moët & Chandon’s Ice Impérial, the ultimate pour.
Finally, swag is life, and thanks to MONDOU, who filled doggy (and kitty) bags to the brim with treats, toys, accessories and personalized ID tags, no pet left the party empty-pawed
