Celebrate Your “Pack” This Holiday Season with Parties!

At Properly Posh Pets, we don't ever need a reason to plan a party, but when the holiday season approaches each year, we start planning a series of parties to celebrate with our friends and family. Parties this time of the year are all about decorations, presents, cocktails, sugar cookies, and fabulous fun! But they are also about pausing to celebrate the magic of the holidays with the members of your "pack" who fill your life with love and laughter all year long. We share our ideas for your holiday parties and recipes for Peppermint Christmas Coffee and Bourbon Cocoa!
