It’s been pretty cereal heavy around here lately. First we crafted, packaged, stuffed and shipped. And now we’re eating our hearts out.
If you’ve been following along with us then you know by now that we have been busy working on an awesome project for General Mills. We had the opportunity to design a Little Miss Party in a Box for National Cereal Day which is officially this Friday March 7th. To kick off the week and this exciting collaboration we said we would give away one of our cereal party boxes to a lucky winner. To enter…you had to tell us what you love most about cereal. The answers were awesome! Here’s a few of our favorites…
I love how you can mix a ton of cereals together and they still all taste great!
- Jillian R.
Cereal for dinner is my favorite guilty pleasure!
- Rachel V.
I love the creative ways cereal is used these days–from doughnut toppings to cereal flavored milk!
- Hannah Baker
Without further ado…our winner of our cereal party in a box is: TIMMY G.!! Please contact us at email@example.com to claim your prize! CONGRATS!
Today we’re not going to go on about how much we love cereal but instead we’re going to tell you how we would style cereal…to make a fabulous party!
First off…you kinda gotta think like a kid. Bright and colorful cereal always makes me think of my childhood!
Cereal can be eaten for any meal of the day. But if we’re going in chronological order here…we begin with breakfast.
To set our table for a cereal themed brunch we began with a chalkboard runner from Live Laugh Create where you can write your guest names, the cereals you’re serving or anything you fancy, really.
We used mini milk jugs as vases which looked super cute and very theme appropriate! And at each place setting we cut a cereal box for the place mat set up with a bright colored bowl & striped napkin from Party City, mini box of cereal, and the most adorable polka dot spoon and #cerealday stamped coffee cups from Tulle & Twig.
Trix are for kids. And also for Party Stylists! Fill a hurricane, drop a skinny glass inside filled with water, add some pretty tulips and boom. GORGEOUS decoration for a festive brunch.
We also decorated jars with bright colored ribbon for this party in a box and have a million different suggestions for how to use em…
* Adult sippy cups
* Cups for the kids
* Use for a parfait
* Fill with sugar for the coffee
The list can go on…
We used ours to fill with beverages with a personalized #cerealday stripey straw in each from Angie Hearts Jared.

Well…Hello, Cereal Lovers! As you already know, we are working with General Mills to send out a LMP in a Box to their cereal loving friends to celebrate National Cereal day on March 7th. It has been such a blast seeing the ideas we dreamed up come to life! We spent the last 48 hours crafting, printing, organizing, packing and shipping out some FAB boxes for National Cereal Day! And I have to say…we pulled out all the TRIX! The boxes turned out great and we could not have been more thrilled to be involved. Projects like this make us LOVE what we do. Check out the behind the scenes pics…all shot by yours truly…LMP.
National Cereal Day is the perfect kid-friendly holiday to celebrate at home with your little ones. They will love pretending to be a star with this Wheaties picture frame…so easy to make at home by cutting out the side of an actual Wheaties Box, tracing a smaller square on the front, and cutting it out using an exact-o knife. Presto! You can see this and a few other goodies we were crafting at our LMP workshop!
We took ordinary mini cereal boxes and dressed them up using a polka dot bamboo spoon, a small piece of washi tape and a gorgeous red and white chevron ribbon. Breakfast is served!
I don’t know many people who don’t love cereal. Breakfast, snack sometimes even for dinner…we here at LMP couldn’t live without it! With that said…we were pretty excited when General Mills stumbled upon the cereal bar that we did for Harlow’s 1st birthday and asked us to get involved with National Cereal Day!
March 7th is officially a day to celebrate your love of cereal and we put together a Little Miss Party in a Box for this special day.
There are so many ways to celebrate this fun food holiday. We took our favorite elements of cereal to create a Little Miss Party in a Box for National Cereal Day and guess what? We’re giving one AWAY! Our box includes bowls, polka dot spoons, napkins, a carafe for your milk, a mini milk jug that you can use for flowers, a chalkboard runner, cereal box bunting, party hats and more!
We’ll be keeping you posted on how we are prepping for National Cereal Day over the next couple of weeks. You can also check out the Hello, Cereal Lovers website. We were inspired by the site to come up with a couple of LMP recipes to celebrate National Cereal Day and are excited to share with you…check em out.
We were recently inspired by a Rockin’ First Birthday brunch that we did for one of our adorable clients. We put together a styled shoot with our DIY record player cake stands to set up a simple yet classy little brunch with some light bites and sweet treats.
We took a buttercream frosted vanilla cake from Empire Cake and dressed it up with yellow glitter flag bunting.
I think this may be my new favorite palette…The yellow and teal colors pop so brightly of the black and white!
A rock n roll themed party is no fun unless you add some props to dress up with!
We picked up croissants and macarons from the bakery at Lafayette. So delicious!
For your one stop shop of party goods we love Party City! Plastic tumblers (shown here with skull & crossbones and a slice of lemon dropped in!), paper plates, napkins, photo props like wigs, gloves, glasses and hats…they have it all!
Rock on Party People!

The freezing cold NYC weather has got me really missing home. Makes me think of those cold Canadian winters I brrr’ed through every year.
Last weekend we went out to spend time with family in Central New Jersey. The boys had a blast in the snow. I grew up playing in the snow…while my boys don’t have this same experience since we live in the city.
I think it became extremely clear that their Mom was Canadian on this weekend Getaway. So through the eyes of my lil guys…here are 5 reasons you know you have a parent from Canada…
Winter Shminter, we’re cold! Bring on the SUN!
