We were recently inspired by a Rockin’ First Birthday brunch that we did for one of our adorable clients. We put together a styled shoot with our DIY record player cake stands to set up a simple yet classy little brunch with some light bites and sweet treats.
We took a buttercream frosted vanilla cake from Empire Cake and dressed it up with yellow glitter flag bunting.
I think this may be my new favorite palette…The yellow and teal colors pop so brightly of the black and white!
A rock n roll themed party is no fun unless you add some props to dress up with!
We picked up croissants and macarons from the bakery at Lafayette. So delicious!
For your one stop shop of party goods we love Party City! Plastic tumblers (shown here with skull & crossbones and a slice of lemon dropped in!), paper plates, napkins, photo props like wigs, gloves, glasses and hats…they have it all!
Rock on Party People!

Anyone else finding it really hard to take down all of your Christmas Decor? I just LOVE Christmas. I am almost all packed away except for the outdoor lights…I just want a few more days with those twinkling beauties! Every year the holiday season seems to fly by quicker and quicker! To bring you back into the spirit of Jolly Ole Saint Nick, check out this awesome Mad for Plaid themed holiday party from a few weeks ago…
As a fun alternative to the “Ugly Sweater” holiday party theme, we suggested our client build in a Mad for Plaid theme, encouraging guests to dress for the occasion. As you can see, everyone did just that!
The signature cocktail setup was probably my favorite part of this party! We thought it would be fun to serve two cocktails out of glass punchbowls, but added some fabulous LMP details, of course. First up — Christmas Sangria, complete with diced apples, sweet cranberries, and rosemary dusted in sugar crystals. Gorgeous, right? Oh and it was delicious as well!
Second, we served a sparkling holiday punch which we spiked with vodka, this was a party after all!
A large sign POP CLINK FIZZ stood as the backdrop to the drink station. Plaid fabric wrapped vases filled with red holly branches and gold dipped babies breath were placed on either side of the sign.
Custom coasters were printed so guests were able to take each cocktail recipe home with them.
I think you’re starting to catch on here…
We’re going bananas with Little Miss Party in a box! We’re getting tons of positive feed back and we couldn’t be more excited!
We have most recently partnered up with the adorable Mom Blogger, Brianne from Stroller in the City to give away a Little Miss Party in a box for New Years Eve. It’s a good one! You won’t want to miss out on your chance to win.
Here’s what we’ve got goin’ on inside….
The theme of the cocktail party to ring in 2014 revolves around glitter. #yougotglittered. With the two glitter vases we’ll be sending you we suggest buying a festive bunch of flowers, adding water and throwing them in. We’ll show you exactly how to make your own floral arrangements on our DIY post here.
We will send you personalized water bottle labels which are a no brainer. It’s a simple way to dress up a plain ol’ water bottle and make it more fun for your party. Just buy a case of water, rip the labels off and stick on ours.
Of course then there’s the essentials. Plates, napkins, party beads…c’mon. We’ll send it all thanks to our friends who we LOVE at Party City! They have an endless selection of everything you could ever need to host a party at home.
You should be a guest at your own party…so you can enjoy it too! We’re here to help with your party needs…and make sure it’s chic and cool.
Hang on…we’ll show you….

People always ask me how I got into party planning. The quick answer is: I love to party. And it’s pretty much just that straight forward. I do really love to party. Always have and always will. And what I love most…is when the party is for me. Well who doesn’t?! Having your family and friends gather together to celebrate…what’s not to love?
Every five years my hubby and I will have a big birthday bash. For his 30th we did it up…and last week was my turn as we called a little shindig for my 35th.
So what are the key elements to a successfully fun party? Here you have em:
1.) Drinks – keep em flowing. And I am a big fan of chic plastics. These recyclable champagne cups from Party City are my fave. And help to keep the cost down and make clean up a cinch! To dress up our drinks we used these fantastic stir sticks from Peach and Pearl. So pretty and festive!
I also like to serve a signature drink. It’s always a hit! It’s the first thing most people ask for when they walk up to the bar so if nothing else, they can try something new. Here we served a prosecco punch.
2.) Don’t leave em hungry: I’m a sucker for a fancy sounding bite size menu. But let’s be honest, you’re drinking all night, chatting and dancing…it’s not enough to fill up. So I always set up a well stocked dessert table and call in a few pizza pies towards the end of the night. Your guests will LOVE you! (more…)
