How fun is taco Tuesday?!

I’m sure everyone has a go to meal when you have a crowd to feed. Mine is Tacos. So easy right? And during the summer, the fruits and veggies are so fresh. It’s so colorful and delicious!

Truth me told, I use the store bought box. I pick up a pound or two of fresh ground meat to brown up and set bowls of fresh toppings:

sour cream

cheese

pico de gallo

guacamole

Oh and of course….cocktails.

Abby served Spicy Pineapple Grapefruit Palomas and they were out of this world.

We had leftover pineapple juice from Abby’s cocktail so we turned that into a pitcher of fruity mocktails for the boys. It was the juice combined with all the citrus we could find in the fridge. Yum! They loved being part of the action.

I had leftover herbs so I put them into a small jar of water and picked flowers from the garden to add a little fun to the table.

Now load up corn or flour tacos and ENJOY! Taco Tuesday Rules.

The Home Edit for LMP

Many moons ago, I worked in fashion. Back in my fashion days, I met some really awesome people. One girl, Rachel, ended up being a best friend, fast. As Rachel and I got to know each other, I met her friends. One of her friends was named Clea. She was always a chic, cool girl who I enjoyed getting to know.

The years went on and we all got busy with life, kids, careers, etc. Clea moved to Nashville and I hadn’t seen her in years.  I would always ask Rachel about her until one day, I no longer had to ask how she was doing. I could see for myself….

Clea started a business called The Home Edit. I noticed her new venture on Instagram and was immediately drawn in as I too am totally OCD and obsessed with organizing.

The Home Edit is a service where Clea and her partner Joanna, and now team of amazing organizers come into your home and edit your closets for you. They analyze your junk, work with you to purge, shop for containers to sort is all in to and then leave you with a closet full of organized chaos.

When I found out that Clea + Joanna travel all over the country to organize people’s closets I said….come on over girls!

Their team spent one day in our office and when they were done we were in awe of what they had done. They organized our party supplies by type making it so easy to find inventory when we need it and of course labeled each container with their signature calligraphy.

I’m so in love with our closets I never want to touch them again in fear that I may move something out of place.

Thank you Clea, Joanna, Nick & Sumner for spending the day making the LMP office perfectly organized! You guys are amazing.

Mod Dress: Anthropologie
Peep-Toe Booties: Kristin Cavallari for Chinese Laundry

Ruffle Top: Wilfred
Wide Leg Pants: Madewell

Picnic Blanket: Target

Floral Top: Wilfred
Button Shorts: Wilfred

Day events are always fun and relaxed so your outfits and shoes should follow suit.

Best friends, Handbags and Wine

The incredible girls (Kate!) at MZ Wallace recently asked me to participate in the #MZWoman campaign with my best friend, Ali. They invited us into their lofty, Soho office, gave us wine and cheese, had a team to do our hair and make up and sent us home with bags to wear on the trip we were taking together to attend Coachella. Needless to say, it was a fun day.

They asked us to answer some questions and I’m excited to share those with you today, along with my answers and…tell you what you can typically find in my bag…

MZ Wallace: Why is it important to have girlfriends in your life?
Seri: My girlfriends are so important to me because they are always there to listen to the good + the bad. We laugh together, cry together and I wouldn’t trade them for anything in the world. 

MZ Wallace: What is your favorite thing to do with your girlfriends?
Seri: DRINK WINE and talk.

MZ Wallace: What’s your favorite MZ Wallace bag for the work week? For the weekend
Seri: The Crosby Traveler is the best for the work week.  It can hold all my folders and laptop and my favorite part is the cross body strap so I can keep my hands free for coffee and my cell phone.  For the weekend, I love the Paige. It’s small and lightweight but holds a good amount so I can still carry the necessities while out in the evening.
Since this shoot my bag SOLD OUT!  I picked a good one – obvi. More of these types of bags in other fab shapes/sizes are available!

MZ Wallace: How do you balance making time for your girlfriends with your busy career and/or family schedules?
Seri: Time for my girlfriends is a must. It’s never easy to fit everyone and everything into my schedule but I always carve out the time at least once or twice a month so I can catch up with my best gal pals. This sometimes means I have to work later into the night to get everything in a day done but it’s always worth it. The work/life balance is key and that includes family AND friends!

MZ Wallace: If we open your bag up today, what will we find inside?
Seri: CANDY, Hand & Face wipes, My Wallet, MAC Lipstick, my keys, pack of tissues, a pencil, pack of gum, glasses and a phone charger.

Thank you MZ Wallace for inviting me to be a part of this super fun campaign!

xx, Seri

First comes Love, then comes the Baby…

We plan a lot of bridal showers here at Little Miss Party and honestly? It’s our favorite party to plan. Our brides are so excited to get married and we get to make their bridal shower party dreams come true.

9 times out of 10, our brides call us a few years after the shower and ask us if we can plan their BABY Shower! First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes the baby with the baby carriage!

A year later, we get another call…time to celebrate Junior’s first birthday! Can you please style the party?!

With that, we quickly realized there are folks who don’t live in NYC and cannot use our services, so to reach these people and ensure they are having a party just as pretty as the ones they see on our website, we launched Little Miss Party in a Box.

LMP in a Box has been around now for two years. We receive the most wonderful feedback from our customers who tell us that our party boxes “saved” them! A few of our favorite notes…

What a party success! We used everything! Everyone was wondering how I had time to coordinate everything- I said I had a Little Miss Party in a Box for help! Keep in touch! Thanks a bunch! Xo
-Sherri Levine

THANK YOU so much for bringing my birthday inspo to life! The room looked incredible with all the decorations for truly a memorable TWINNING birthday celebration that brought together our families in town from across the country. I cannot say this enough, we could not have had this type of birthday celebration WITHOUT your your amazing service and creative support. Everything from the custom flowers for the wall and the light up marquee hearts were just stunning touches to detail that added to the theme. There is just not enough time in the day and I am so grateful to have found your company. I hope to use you again for future party needs!
-Jayne Babine

Now we have new party boxes online and we’re so excited to share with you. Specifically today I’m super excited to introduce the new Little Miss Shower Party in a Box that you can drop down the menu to purchase as a “love” bridal shower box OR a “baby” shower. We’ve got new plates with the cutest party lingo, glitter utensils and our PARTY PEOPLE cups which you can now buy separately.

Whether you’re planning a shower or a birthday party for a child or a grown up, we’ve got you with our one-stop-shop party boxes.

Cheers!
