People often ask what my favorite thing to do with my family in New York City is. I think the answer is getting boring already because it’s always: a picnic in the park.
New York is filled with the most beautiful parks all with history, scenery and grassy patches open for picnicking.
So now let me tell you about the most genius idea ever. Perfect Picnic NYC.
Since Father’s day is so soon I thought it would be fun to get some new photos with my family. When I called Raquel to schedule a mini father’s day shoot I told her I don’t want to meet in the usual spot – my apartment. As much as I love the photos that I have with us in my home, I wanted something different. Something fun and seasonal.
I gave the ladies at Perfect Picnic NYC a shout. They got back to me immediately and together we worked out the most fabulous picnic.
Really nice to have someone else do the thinking for once, just grab your basket and go!
Perfect Picnic NYC put together one of the most beautiful spreads I’ve ever seen on a blanket. There was no detail missed.
Imagine if you could show up in the park to this. C’mon seriously? It’s genius.
We have been “cooking” up a ton over here at Little Miss Party. As you may know by now, we’ve been working on a very exciting new piece of our business: LMP in a Box.
We were invited to style the Biggest Baby Shower for Big City Moms. It’s their tenth year hosting this fabulous event targeted to expectant mothers in New York City. There will be over 1500 guests there and we will be showcasing our party in a box this evening at the event.
What’s even more exciting is that we teamed up with Sur La Table to run a contest for our biggest giveaway yet…a limited edition Mother’s day LMP in a Box. This prize is made of products that we chose from the Sur La Table stores to make for a mother’s day breakfast in bed and brunch with friends later. We are so excited we cannot contain ourselves!
I got a bit nostalgic while working on this project. Sur La Table is where I registered for my wedding. I have always had a great love for cooking and it’s one of the reasons the LMP business started.
From essential basics to hard-to-find specialty tools and cookware, Sur La Table is sure to have something for every cook… even tools for the lil ones! With cooking classes in over 50 locations, Sur La Table operates the largest avocational cooking school nationwide.
People often ask me how I spend time with my children and how I manage the business and having two little ones. Getting them involved in cooking is one of my favorite ways of spending time together. They love to try new foods and to get their hands dirty.
They are also a great help with prepping for our events. From taking a trip to the flower market to helping us put custom labels on water bottles, they are our best assistants.
This mother’s day we thought to ourselves, let’s put together the perfect gift box. A box that would make US, the ultimate party girls, happy. One thing that I truly miss about my pre-children days is my sleep. So what better way to treat mom then with breakfast in bed. Let the kids do the work that morning…serving you fresh coffee, homemade waffles, flowers and pretty cloth napkins. Turn on the news, open a magazine and exit children. Let Dad take over for a little while. Enjoy it!
And what about when Mother’s day ends? It’s only one day and then it’s back to reality. Being a mom! This LMP in a Box special for Mother’s day is not only great for a gift but everything is useful thereafter. The glass milk jars make for perfect bud vases, the napkins could be used as colorful placemats and the Acacia wood tray is great for serving mimosas.
We are so looking forward to the Biggest Baby Shower event tonight. We will choose one lucky winner for this Mother’s Day Breakfast in Bed LMP in a Box prize this Friday May 2nd.
