How to Host a Garden Party

Our new Little Miss Shower Party in a Box is quite possibly the cutest selection of party supplies we’ve ever seen. Since you have the option to choose between a script balloon that says “love” or “baby,” you can really use it for any occasion! We chose Love, for a bridal shower, and we glammed it up with this glitter balloon DIY.

Last week, we hosted this bridal shower in Seri’s backyard and recorded every step so you can see EXACTLY how she made it look so fabulous. It was easy, fast, and beyond gorgeous. This How to Host episode will show you how to prep your meal, set your table, and serve your drinks. Below the video, you will find printable cards with the shopping lists and links for everything we made!

Watch and LEARN! Seri is the hosting queen, and she’s ready to show you just how easy it is to do yourself.

National Hot Dog Day

On any given night of the summer, the team at Little Miss Party sits down together (like a little family!) to eat dinner. As party stylists, there’s nothing we love more than an excuse to celebrate, especially when it involves food. Today is National Hot Dog Day and we took full advantage of it to make the cutest hot dog bar ever.

We set up our cart, diner stools, and ingredients by the pool.

I even made little flags for each topping! If you want to create them yourself, just use some black paper, metallic marker, wooden skewers, and double-sided tape.

Finally, it was time to fire up the grill, and get to topping!

Once we all had our baskets ready, we set the table…

and poured some rosé in our favorite shatterproof Party People cups!

All I have to say is there’s nothing quite like an old fashioned hot dog on a summer night. We highly recommend it!

Happy National Hot Dog Day!

Red, White and Blue Hard Cider

Happy 4th of July, everyone! Are you all enjoying this lovely Holiday weekend as much as we are?

Natalie came up with the idea to make a cocktail using some red, white and blue fruit for a festive fourth beverage, and I decided to round it out by using the Dry White Cider that our friends at Wölffer sent to us to try out last month!

Here’s what you need:
-Wölffer Estate’s Dry White Cider
-fresh raspberries
-fresh blueberries
-fresh apples, sliced and cut into star shapes

Here’s what to do:
1) Add 1 cup fresh raspberries, 1 cup fresh blueberries and 1/2 cup star-shaped apple slices to a pitcher.


2) On top of fruit, add 1-2 bottles of Wölffer’s Dry White Cider, enough to fill the pitcher.


3) Cover pitcher and let sit in fridge for 1-2 hours.
4) Once you remove from the pitcher, pour into each cocktail glass, allowing some fruit to pour into each glass.


5) Garnish with star-shaped apple slice and a straw!

After we mixed this up in the studio, we took it to the pool that just happens to be on the roof of our studio building, to sip from our new Party People shatterproof Govino stemless wine glasses, and enjoy the breathtaking NYC view.  How much more America could it get?

Have a happy and safe Fourth… Cheers!

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…

xx, Abby

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!!!

xx, Seri
