Chef Luke makes guacamole with his brother


This week Chef Luke welcomed his brother, Gavin into the kitchen with him. With all the holidays coming up Luke decided to make his favorite party food…guacamole. He’s serving his guacamole…in a hollowed out pumpkin for a Halloween Party. Pretty perfect.


First things first…we needed some avocados. Luke went with Gavin and Kathleen to the supermarket to pick these up before getting started so they had to be ripe. Ripe avocados are soft when you squeeze them but not too soft or they will be brown when you cut inside.


To cut the guacamole you want to take your knife and circle it around the entire avocado. Then you twist and it will come apart. You can stab the pit with your knife to pull it out. Just be careful!

Once you’ve got the avocado split in half, take a spoon and go around the skin to scoop out the flesh. Or just squeeze it out like Chef Luke and Gavin discovered they could do…



Once you’ve got your avocado in a bowl, you want to hit it with some lime juice so it doesn’t turn brown. Then you mash, smash n mash.



While Luke was mashing…Gavin was busy chopping tomatoes to add in next. Using a child safe knife he chopped up plum tomatoes into cubes.




They added tomatoes, chopped red onion, a teaspoon of minced garlic, salt and pepper. Now STIR.



To serve the guacamole dip they filled up a hollowed out pumpkin. How festive is this for fall? Perfect for a Halloween party or playdate.




And don’t forget your Halloween Party in a Box. Now on sale! Enter LMP20 to receive $20 off your next order. Happy Halloween Eating!


OH, and here’s a little video of the whole process :)

A Barnyard Birthday Bash



Well this may be it folks…our most adorable birthday party to date! Seriously….this barnyard bash was udderly fantastic! (Pun intended).


This birthday was a joint party for two adorable little gals turning 3 and 4. Obviously best friends and lovers of all adorable animals.


Our clients, two very stylish woman, booked an event space that blew our minds. Industria NYC located over on the west side has several spaces that are commonly used for events and photo shoots. The studio that these ladies booked for their daughter’s birthday party had concrete floors, exposed brick walls and a garage that opened up right onto the streets of NYC.




To create the ultimate barnyard bash they asked us if we could bring in a pony for the kids to ride and farm animals for the kids to pet. Needless to say…this idea went over pretty well! Thanks to Aly’s Ponies who brought in a variety of farm animals such as ducks, goats and bunnies. Their staff was super friendly and the kids had a blast touching, feeling and taking photos with these animals.




We didn’t stop there with the entertainment. Ramblin’ Dan & The Freewheelin’ Band came in to preform for the kids. They are our favorite kids band in NYC. Dan is so animated and FUN! Plus he plays songs the best songs including top hits that he puts a really awesome spin on appealing to the whole crowd, kids and adults.



We also set a table up for Melinda Prom and her team to paint the faces of all the kids at the party. Also…a HIT!



For the food buffet, we called in Poppy’s Catering for an assortment of children’s sammies and platters of cheese, meat, fruit and veggies. Poppy’s also make the most delicious homemade chips that they package up so beautifully for parties. Was the perfect mix of food for the parents who were busy chasing after their kids at this party. Our favorite part of this food buffet? See that barn on the wall?  Don’t even ask how we got it up there. It involved using a horse on a stick…HA!




Huge thanks to Abby’s grandmother who gave us tons of antique items straight from her farm in upstate New York! We’ll forever cherish these items and use them over and over again at our events.



For the cakes, each birthday girl told us their favorite animal. One requested a farm animal  favorite – the cow, and the other gal wanted a cake that looked like her favorite stuffed animal doggie! We worked with the amazing team at Tribeca Treats who totally nailed these cakes.



How about our Barnyard Bar? Homemade lemonade from Poppy’s Catering, paper cow cups, milk and chocolate milk boxes and of course water bottles with adorable custom labels designed by Maggie.





As a thank you and a send off to all the kids who attended our clients found stick horses. How amazing?! So fitting for the party theme and too cute for words.


Now I think you can see what I mean about this party being pretty fabulous and a fave to date. Happy birthday to our new friends!

Lil’ Firefighters to the Rescue!


Three is the age when kids start to know what they like and don’t like. Cars, trains, firetrucks! That’s exactly what lil’ Billy wanted the theme of his third birthday party to be.


We love nothing more than parties in the backyard. Fire up the grill, roll towels by the pool and sip on sangria. And for Billy’s party we were going to do just that.


We took full advantage of the backyard by bringing in a water slide and have a magician perform a wacky show.


Our favorite Hamptons caterer, Janet O’Brien put out the perfect afternoon spread starting with a huge bowl of rosé sangria and chips, salsa + guac.




Once the guests settled in, Looney Louie grabbed their attention and put on a hilarious and fun performance. Following the show, lunch was served buffet style and each dish was more delicious than the next.



Of course we placed adorable details all over the place. Sunflowers in boots?! Clusters of balloons, honeycombs hanging from the umbrellas and my favorite… the kids picnic tables set for each child with a fireman’s hat, hydrant sippy cup and “fire extinguisher” water bottles that Maggie custom design for the party.








For dessert we used the “stop, drop and roll” way and served a tiered tray of “fire” cupcakes that were sitting on top of gum drops and Tootsie Rolls. Along side were fireman hat cookies and a cake so stunning we were afraid to cut into it. All desserts were made by our friends at Sugar Sugar in Quogue.




Lil’ Billy had a blast with his friends while the grown ups enjoyed rosé and beers. Happy birthday little guy! We can’t wait to see what interests you next year….

DIY with LMP: Ice Cream Balloon


This week’s DIY is CRAZY easy, but something we just had to share. Because it’s way too cute not to. You all know how much we love ice cream and parties, so we decided to make something that could combine the two! We made a GIANT ice cream cone that will be the perfect centerpiece for your next ice cream social party.


You will need:

one giant pink (or other “ice cream” color) balloon
one normal sized red balloon
multiple colors of washi tape
gold tin bucket (we spray painted ours gold!)


Step 1: Blow up your balloons. Don’t get them done with helium, these balloons will need to stay weighed down!


Step 2: Place rolled pieces of tape around the inside of the rim. Place the giant pink balloon on top, with the knot facing inwards so it is hidden. Make sure the balloon is really well placed and sticking to the tape. Once it is on, you won’t want to pull it off again to avoid popping.


Step 3: Add tape to the bottom of the small red balloon and carefully attach it to the top of the pink balloon, doing your best to hide the knot by facing it backwards.


Step 4: Peel off pieces of your washi tape, at about 2in long. Place them randomly all over the pink balloon, so they are spread out like sprinkles.


And just like that, you have the PERFECT centerpiece. Now, where’s the real ice cream?!

xx, Maggie
