Rosé Sangria for National Pink Day

As you know, we are all about rosé here at LMP, and pink is our absolute favorite color. National Pink Day is coming up this Friday, and it felt like a very natural choice to create a perfectly pink cocktail to celebrate.

We also have 3 big events happening this week, so I decided to keep it simple and whip up some Rosé Sangria, using raspberries, strawberries and mint, with some blueberries for a hint of green and blue. This recipe is super simple and a refreshing way to kick off summer!

Here’s what you need:
-Rosé wine
-sparkling water or club soda
-sugar
-fresh strawberries
-fresh raspberries
-fresh blueberries
-fresh mint
-ice

Here’s what to do:
1) In a pitcher, combine 1 bottle rosé wine, 1 cup each of sliced strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and 2 tbsp. sugar. Stir to combine ingredients, and leave to refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
2) After you have let sit, top with 1.5 cups seltzer, a cup of ice and a handful of ripped mint leaves.
3) Stir gently to combine, and serve, garnishing with a fresh mint leaf!

Boom! Super easy, right? This sangria is fresh and not too sweet – the perfect sip to cool down on these hot summer days.

Cheers, and happy #NationalPinkDay!

Until next week…

Donut Day

There is no holiday in existence that the LMP team would rather celebrate than National Donut Day. So in honor of our favorite breakfast pastries, we styled up 3 ways to decorate for your own Donut Day celebrations. Have a party at home with friends or at work with colleagues and tag @littlemissparty so we can see how you celebrated!

Setup 1: Donut Inner Tube Platter.

That’s right. Break out your favorite donut sledding tube, like ours from Big Mouth, Inc., wipe it clean, and platter your donuts right in the center. Sprinkle some confetti and place it in the middle of the room for everyone to access.

Setup 2: Stacked Donut Cake

Find your favorite cake stand and serving tray and pile those donuts up. We used our inner tube as a decorative riser this time and placed it on top of the table. We surrounded the setup with our favorite balloons from The Grown Up Birthday Bash in a Box and voila! A perfect Donut Day Party.

Setup 3: It’s Raining Donuts

Last but not least, we decided to hang our donuts from the ceiling. Easy access for your guests to come in and pick their poison! We added depth by decorating with our favorite confetti balloons and the inner tube in the background. This setup is definitely a crowd pleaser.

Looking for a drink to go along with your donuts? Be sure to check out Abby’s Spiked Cold Brew Coffee.

Happy Donut Day!!!

Blackberry Wine Slushy

Wine in slushy form? Yes please. While brainstorming for cocktail ideas for this upcoming month, Maggie found the idea for a red wine slushy, and we knew we had to try it out.  We decided to put an LMP twist on it… instead of red wine, we used rosé!

Get ready for the prettiest summer cocktail you’ve ever seen, and that you will be dying to try!

Here’s what you need:

-rosé wine
-vodka
-orange juice
-blackberries
-ice
-fresh mint
-sugar
-fresh lemon, zested

Here’s what to do:

1) Take one of your fresh lemons and zest. Combine with sugar on a plate and mix until zest is evenly distributed. Use lemon wedge to wet the rim of your glasses, and place rim in sugar/ lemon zest mixture to line each rim.


2) Combine 1 cup ice, 1 oz. orange juice, 1.5 oz vodka, 5 oz. rosé, a handful of blackberries and a tbsp of sugar to a blender.  Blend until you reach a slushy consistency.


3) Pour mixture into each glass, careful not to get sugared rim wet.  Garnish with fresh blackberry and sprig of mint.

Until next week… Cheers!

How to Host brunch for your Mom Friends

My Mom raised me to be a kind, polite, loving person. I always showed my Mom respect and there was never any shortage of love in our home. I will however tell you that I did not show my Mother the appreciation that she truly deserved until I became a mother myself and learned just how powerful being a Mom is. There’s simply, nothing like it.

When you become a Mom for the first time you immediately look to other moms for comfort. Your life is literally turned upside down and it’s really nice to have new Moms to talk to about all the challenges, raging emotions and intense love that you have for your new baby.

As your children grow up, you make new Mom friends…at school. The funny thing about the Moms that you meet at school is it feels like you’ve started school all over again and are a kid yourself.

I have a handful of very special Mom friends that I have now made throughout these stages of having kids and cherish each of them for their friendship and style of parenting.

This year I wanted to host a very special Mother’s Day brunch for my Mom friends. It was so lovely having the girls over for a carefree, kid free, morning of chatter, good food and a few cocktails.

We recently partnered with Harney & Sons tea on a shoot and now have quite the obsession. Their cans! Gah. They are to die for. And the tea is off the handles delish. So I thought it would be fun to send each of my Mom friends home with a pretty canister of tea as a little gift to say I love you, and think you’re a great mom and friend.

Today I’m so excited to share with you the first of our “How to Host” series that we filmed to show you how to host your own Mother’s Day brunch for friends or Moms in your life. Check it out and please let us know what you think! We’ve got more of these videos in store for you. Hope you enjoy!

Leave a comment and tell us what you think of the video and make sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel so you can stay up to date on all the videos we post.

Last but not least, be sure to grab a Little Miss Party in a Box from our online shop if you’re in need of stunning tableware and decor for your Mother’s Day brunch this weekend. A set of Red Noses will be included in every Little Miss Party in a Box purchase through May 25th.

Tequila Sunrise

Cinco de Mayo is on Friday, and it just happens to be one of our favorite smaller Holidays to celebrate.  Any excuse for tequila & tacos… am I right?

I decided to test out a fresh and fruity tequila cocktail to get us in the spirit, and with Natalie’s help, we decided on the Tequila Sunrise… a beachy favorite that we have both seen while on tropical vacations.

Here’s what you need:

-silver tequila
-grenadine
-orange juice
-fresh orange
-fresh raspberries

Here’s what to do:

1) Add ice to each cocktail glass.   Pour 1.5 oz. of silver tequila over the ice.


2) Fill your glass about 2/3 of the way with orange juice.  Then, very carefully, pour grenadine into glass, making sure the pour hits the middle of the orange juice.  The grenadine should sink to the bottom of the glass, making the drink a darker red on the bottom and brighter orange on the top. Do not mix!


3) Garnish with a fresh orange wedge and some raspberries, and you’ve got yourself a cocktail!

The name tequila sunrise comes from the fact that the separation of the darker red grenadine and lighter orange juice resembles a sunrise… get it??

I hope you get to enjoy this poolside this Friday in celebration of Cinco… looks like it’s gonna be rainy in NYC, but I hope wherever you are you get some sun!

Adiós!

xx, Abby
