A Beach Picnic in The Hamptons

As the summer comes to end, all we can do is try to make the most of what time is left! Last week, the LMP team headed to the beach for their last outing of the summer in The Hamptons. It was hot, sunny and a perfectly fabulous way to celebrate an amazing summer together.

We laid out our favorite picnic blanket and set up our picnic tray. We brought our beach-safe shatterproof PARTY PEOPLE wine cups and metallic straws for sipping.

We filled up our beverage bucket with our favorite flavors of La Croix and a bottle of Wolffer Rosé. Our favorite drink choice of the day, though, was the Montauk Watermelon beer.

Seri made amazing caprese sandwiches for us, which we enjoyed on our Palm Plates (which are now 50% off, btw!). SO BEACHY.

Our day was made even better because Cousin Jesse was in town! Not only did he help us carry all our supplies to the beach, but he provided endless laughs the whole say- we hope you caught all the fun on Snapchat!

The #LMPSummer was certainly one we will NEVER forget. Thanks for tuning in on the fun, and we can’t wait to show you all what we have in store for fall!

DIY Gold Lawn Flamingos

We’re all about the big trends here at LMP, and the flamingo trend is one we hope never goes out of style. Last summer we bought an amazing set of pink flamingos for the garden at Seri’s Hampton’s house. We decided to give them a chic makeover and style them by the pool for cocktail hour!

This DIY is one of the easiest YET. You will need:

-Lawn Flamingos- use as many as you would like to fill your lawn!
-Metallic Gold Spray Paint- available at Michael’s or your local hardware store.
-Scrap Cardboard- to protect your lawn from the paint.

Step 1: Use something sharp to poke holes through the cardboard, and stand your flamingo up on the grass. You want the flamingo to be upright so you can easily coat it with your spray paint.

Step 2: Thoroughly spray your flamingo with the paint. Don’t spray too close- give some distance so the paint coats evenly!

Step 3: Gather the fam & set up for cocktail hour.

Step 4: Bring in the bar, pick flowers from the garden, and add in your finishing touches. Unpainted flamingos and outdoor pillows for pops of pink to match our favorite pool umbrella brought the whole scene together. Enjoy!

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.

A Canadian Summer

For 10 years as a kid, I spent my summers at overnight camp. It’s hard for me to describe, but those 10 summers were the best of my life. The friends I made, the experiences I had, the sports I played and the independence I gained was invaluable.

This summer I sent my older son Gavin to sleep away camp for his first time for a month. It was heartbreaking to send my baby away. I couldn’t breathe with him gone. However, I knew I was giving him the greatest gift and experience he could ever have.

During the one month period that he is gone, the camp hosts a visitors day for parents and families to come and visit their children. The following week, Gavin was going to be coming home so I decided to rent a cottage near the camp for the week instead of flying back and forth between Toronto and New York.

When we first spotted Gavin on Visitors day we grabbed him so tight and cried tears of joy. It was an emotional roller coaster for us all. Gavin was so proud to show us around camp, introduce us to his friends and show us what he had learned over the past few weeks. His favorite and most proud accomplishment was learning to water ski.

My sister has a friend who rented a cottage in the same area that we were looking for a place so she recommended that cottage to us and we got super lucky in booking it!

The cottage was unreal, nestled right in front of the lake.  The owner is totally OCD like me so everything was super organized and perfectly placed.

My sister, her husband and daughter (Baby Dylan!) came to the cottage for a few days. Then my friend Ady spent another few days with me before I picked up Gavin to come home for the rest of the summer.

The quality time Luke got with his cousin Dylan was so special. “Uke” she kept calling as she was chasing him around. We don’t live in the same country so we cherish this time together!

We BBQ’d, made bonfires, took the paddleboat and canoe out in the lake and spent the evenings gazing at the stars and drank rosé all day.

When I picked up Gavin I got to learn all about his time at camp and it sounded like he had the most wonderful time. He was exhausted, filthy and even a little bit rattled over all the new experiences. Needless to say, summer camp started a beautiful tradition and legacy for many years to come.

    Looks like camp packing will be a summer tradition! Better start to think about what to hide in his bag this summer!
