This past Saturday when the kids jumped into our bed at 6:30am I popped up and screamed “Gavin! Can you go and grab the newspaper from the front door?!” He hustled over to the door and quickly ran back with the NY Post in hand. There on page 25, 26 & 27 was LMP talking all about entertaining for the Oscars. It was the most surreal feeling of my life.
The NY Post asked us to style a table at Cafe Gitane in the Jane Hotel inspired by the movie The Grand Budapest Hotel by Wes Anderson which was nominated for several awards.
We played off the bold colors and symmetrical visuals from the movie. We used red cake stands from Fish’s Eddy to serve mini schnitzel sliders and to hold goblets of poppy seed dressed chunky chopped salad.
We also served a drink inspired by Madame X played by Tilda Swinton in the film. It was a vodka soda cocktail with a swirl of lemon to garnish and mustache straws like all of the men have in the movie!
We found the most perfect vintage items from Little Vintage Rentals – the phone, lamp and train case looked like they were right out of the movie!
In the train case we set up bags of parmesan & paprika popcorn with “Lobby Boy” stickers. We also printed Lobby Boy Hats that we turned into photo props by taping to a skewer.
A really fun element of our table were the antique items that we found from our family members. My Boobie lent me a beautiful platter which we lined with gold heart doilies and placed pastries on top of. And then there was the jewelry box that we stole from Aunt Debi AKA The Garden of Eatin’ which we turned into a macaron hotel.
Last but not least, the Mendl’s Boxes. Michelle printed out a template that she found on Etsy, printed on cardstock and folded to make these boxes look identical to those found in the movie. I took a stab at the famous Mendl’s Courtesan Du Chocolat from a recipe that I found on Buzzfeed. These were easier to make then they look!
This was one of the first times we’ve actually worked with a model who got into character with the bellboy from the Jane Hotel to showcase our work.
We couldn’t have been more pleased with how this all turned out and are still pinching ourselves from seeing our faces in the NY Post.
A big huge thanks to Zandy Mangold for these photos. What a doll and talented photographer who we are so lucky to have worked with.

Well it’s kinda nice when you see someone thinking outside the box…a Little Miss Party in a Box, that is.
This week on The Canadian television show The Social we found our New Years Eve box styled on a table for the Oscars. Although we have designed our party boxes around some holidays, they are meant to and can be used for so much more.
Glitz, glam, pop, fizz, clink! Most certainly screams The Oscars! It’s a night to celebrate talent within Hollywood and why not do so in style like the celebrities do!
Sippin’ on champagne and throwing back oysters, all went perfectly with the shiny star plates that you will find in many of our party boxes.
It’s a black tie type of night so hold up a bowtie and smile for the paparazzi.
From our Pink Party in a Box…Mwah! Big red lips, just like the movie stars.
So what are you waiting for? Shop the Box now! We’ll take the stress out of entertaining and then some.
We are so excited about our latest Little Miss Party in a Box! This limited edition box that we are currently selling makes for a beautiful (and pink!) celebration.
Valentine’s Day falls on a Saturday this year, so many excuses to party!
Invite your friends over for cookies, cocoa and kisses. Use our pretty party supplies to set up a dessert and hot chocolate bar with all of the fixin’s for your guests to help themselves.
Cupcakes and Cocktails – invite the gals over for a few drinks and light eats.
Pancake playdate – gather the family and kids for brunch and make heart shaped pancakes!
As always we partnered with our favorite vendors many of which are small business owners like ourselves. The Flair Exchange is where we found the chic “Cheers” balloons and Angie Hearts Jared made the glitter lip toppers and foil stamped bamboo forks by hand for us.
We also thought outside the box here. A birthday party, baby or bridal shower….this bright and beautiful edition of our LMP in a Box can be used for more then just the holidays!
So what are you waiting for? Shop the Box and Join the Party!

I love a good challenge. So when Little Miss Party approached me about restyling their Halloween Chex Little Miss Party in a Box, of course I couldn’t resist!
The box arrived on my doorstep just as cute as can be. The attention to detail and adorable packaging made it feel like I was opening a present.
I took an inventory of what I had and decided to focus on three key items to pull together a simple and sweet Valentine’s Day snack table. The other goodies will be saved to for next Halloween.
While planning out what I was going to do for the set-up, I opened up the box of Chocolate Chex and couldn’t get over how good they were just on their own. In fact, handfuls of the cereal kept disappearing each time my two young children would walk by! It was then that I realized, I could serve the Chocolate Chex straight out of the box on the snack table. I mean, it doesn’t get any more hassle free than that!
I used the chevron favor bags embellished with a gold foil heart sticker to serve the Chex mix. And on the other side of the table, I included the black and white striped cups also embellished with the same gold foil heart sticker. Sticking with my no hassle approach to snacks on the table, I looked to my pantry and decided to add some cereal bars stacked on a cake plate in the center of the table.
I decided to drape some gold sequin fabric behind the table and thought it could use another element, so I created an “XOXO” banner cut out from the chevron favor bags.
To make the banner, I blew up the letters “XO” in 550 pt font in Microsoft Word. I printed and cut the letters out and traced them on the favor bags. Then I cut the letters out of the favor bags, punched holes at the top and strung the letters on a strand of jute twine. It was so easy to make and turned out so cute!
Thanks Little Miss Party and Chex for sending along the box of goodies! I had fun putting together the snack table and my boys had even more fun devouring the treats with their friends!

I think the cold weather alone should be enough to want to gather your friends and celebrate. A Winter celebration is the perfect way to stay warm and cozy on a cold night.
That’s what we had in mind when styling a cocktail party for 50 people in Brooklyn this winter. Comfort food was passed to the guests while they lined up for a variety of sweet eats.
We love a boozy cupcake and have a fond obsession with Prohibition Bakery. Their bite size cupcakes are party perfect and make for great conversation when tasting the flavors.
Peppermint snowflake shaped bark was a must at this affair. Minty, sweet and so winter appropriate.
Now check this out and yes you are seeing these right……gold dipped cake pops in waffle cups. Oh.My.No you didn’t. SO good! All of the desserts were made by our sweet friend, Making that Cake.
We styled the main dining room table with winter greens, hycientha flowers and wine red peonies. We added in fuchsia ornaments and star lit trees to make for a romantic setting.
Our current obsession are these marquee lit stars from Restoration Hardware. They add instant beauty anywhere we light ‘em up!
For the cocktails we served a couple of signature drinks one being a winter punch packed with fresh cranberries, rosemary, apple and white grape juice. The other was a Bourbon cocktail which was a hit amongst the gentlemen at the party.
Our client happened to have the most beautifully styled apartment. We are so lucky to have the opportunity to work with these incredible people who have such great taste.
The guests nibbled on hors d’oeuvres from Cobblestone Catering including tomato tartlets, BLT bites, truffled mac n cheese and duck spring rolls just to name a few.
The evening was a huge success, full of great eats, drinks and fabulous company.
