Blueberry Sparkler


Some of my best inspiration for cocktails comes from trying new drinks while out and about in New York City.  I like to call it “market research”.

A new bar opened up down the street from mine and Maggie’s new apartment, called The High Water.  It has already been named the hottest new restaurant in Queens by Eater NY, and that title is certainly deserved!

I’ve tried this new spot out a few times now, and one of the times I went I tried their Heel Tap cocktail, which was the inspiration for todays creation.  Introducing, the Blueberry Sparkler.

Here is what you need:
-vodka
-elderflower liqueur
-prosecco
-fresh blueberries
-fresh rosemary
-ice
-cocktail shaker
-muddler

Here is what to do:
1) Put 1/2 a cup of fresh blueberries into your cocktail shaker.  Pour a little bit of vodka on top of the blueberries.  Muddle together until blueberries are well crushed.

2) To your shaker, add ice, 2 oz vodka, and 1.5 oz elderflower liqueur. Cover and shake well.
3) Pour shaken mixture into each cocktail glass, dividing evenly and filling up each glass halfway.

4) Top each glass with prosecco. Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary and a few fresh blueberries.

This cocktail is so yummy, gorgeous, and a lovely Fall option for those looking to take a break from all of the pumpkin/ cinnamon centered cocktails.

Until next week… cheers!

xx, Abby

A Parisian themed Bridal Shower

Hosted by the bride’s mother and soon-to-be mother in law, we celebrated a Parisian-inspired bridal shower lunch at a quaint restaurant in Toronto’s Distillery District. Cluny Bistro & Boulangerie is a venue fit for a chic event like this one. The room is decked out in vintage décor, art, and mirrors. The beautiful windows, lighting, and ceilings make the space charming and full of character.

Guests enjoyed a lovely three-course lunch. Guests could choose to start with either a tomato soup or Caesar salad. The main course was a choice between salmon or chicken. And finally, the sweetest course of all was a maraschino cherry tartlet, with vanilla and salted caramel ice cream.

This shower will filled with many traditional-game-loving guests, but we kept it simple and only played a few games that didn’t really involve much movement. Games were organized at each guests’ seat and they were simple and sweet. One of our favorites was He Said, She Said. The game card had a variety of different statements and guests had to guess who they thought said each – the bride or the groom! Another crowd pleaser was the Date Night Jar. Guests were able to write a fun date idea for the happy couple and place them in a jar for the bride and groom to use when they’re stuck for a date idea! 

The dessert table was created with a two-tiered semi naked cake as the focal point. Also included on the sweet table was a variety of cookies and squares made for the taking. There were to-go containers ready for the ladies to pack up as many cookies as they could fit!

The lovely groom-to-be popped in at the end for a quick hello and flower drop off. 

At the end of the party guests walked away with “thank you” succulents potted in gold sprayed terra cotta pots. It was the perfect send off to the most perfect shower.

Seri’s Closet: Daytime Events

It feels like every weekend I’m running from event to event. My attire for daytime events is so different from my evening wear and people often ask me how I choose my outfits for all the different occasions.

My outfits for daytime events are always comfortable, chic and seasonally fitting. Here are a few of my faves from the popular spring time events that you will often find yourself attending…

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

Ruffle Top: Wilfred
Wide Leg Pants: Madewell
Sunglasses: Warby Parker
Picnic Blanket: Target

Floral Top: Wilfred
Button Shorts: Wilfred
Lace-up Sandals: Revolve Clothing

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

xx, Maggie

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!
