Why don’t you come over for a glass of wine before dinner….?
What does that mean? It means, cheese + wine. My favorite combo ON THE PLANET EARTH.
Now how many ways are there to put together a board of cheese? A LOT! So today we’re rounding it up for you…to make it super easy. You can do this is in less then 20 minutes flat…
* 2-3 types of cheese: soft, hard (cube it) and stinky
* Grapes and/or dried fruit and nuts
* A cured meat if you so desire
* Cheese knives, cocktail plates and napkins
Don’t forget the olives and I love serving crusty bread. I even like to add a little rosemary to the plate for the woodsy aroma and the fresh green pop that it gives to the board.
So what are you waiting for? Invite your friends over…we just made it so easy for you to do so!
What is cuter then your children admiring your style and all that you do on a daily basis? Mother’s day is the perfect opportunity to get the little ones involved and we’ve got our little ones all dressed up in the cutest outfits. They are party-ready.
With large, bright flowers, tissue decorations and all of the party supplies you need from our Little Miss Party Party in a Box - we are setting up a table ready for a celebration.
We found the most adorable dresses for the girls to dress up in for the party from Florence Fancy. Since we took these photos the girls haven’t wanted to take these dresses off.
Michelle and I always enjoy getting dressed up. We found fabulous outfits from CAbi being both stylish and comfortable. I paired a navy jumpsuit with a large necklace and a headband. While Michelle wore a classic black A-line skirt effortlessley.
We are always looking for creative new ideas when it comes to gifting and recently received the most wonderful package from Northern Brewer. Their Master Vintner Small Batch Wine Starter Kit is perfect for a mom who loves wine. Well that’s US. And since we love almost anything that is DIY…making wine is a great new activity for us to try!
We also discovered Northern Brewer’s Creamery in a Box Starter Kit which also makes a great gift for the foodie or entertaining mom. She can set up shop in the kitchen and handcraft her own homemade hard and soft cheeses like Farmhouse Cheddar, Feta, Cottage Cheese and Queso Fresco. Um….Cool + Yum!
The most anticipated season of the year (on the east coast at least ) is undoubtedly, spring. So when someone comes to us and says they want to throw a spring fling just for the fun of it, we say, yes please! Out with the cold, in with the warm, let’s party!
The key to a successful party is the food, drinks and music. We brought in Cobblestone Catering and served a beautufil spread of hearty hors d’oeuvres.
Shrimp lollipops with a lemongrass dip, cremini mushroom sliders and lamb meatball pita sammies were all part of the spread that we stationed on the big dinner table for guests to graze over.
To drink we served a fresh peach and basil sangria. We set the bar with “drink up buttercup” and “cheers” napkins from our girl Joanne at Oh Goodie Designs.
I think my favorite part of the party was the back office. In this room…we set dessert. EAT CAKE was our theme over here with these awesome balloons from The Flair Exchange.
The party was a blast. The perfect way to ring in the warmer months ahead and enjoy sips, sweets and eats with friends. And our client told us…now she’s going to make this an annual party.
Ah, Spring. We love you and your bright flowers, green grasses and soft breezes. We also love all of the amazing parties you bring us – showers, engagements, weddings – Spring certainly is the season for celebrating. And we want you to be super prepared which is why we put together an amazing collection of party goods to help you become the Hostess with the Mostess! Throwing a chic and classy Spring Soiree is easy as can be with our Little Miss Party in a Box – Spring Edition.
We started by including 5 tissue fans and paper lanterns, all in shades of white and pale yellow. We love to hang the tissue decorations over a table or an even easier idea is to prop them up behind your food table like we did here.
We are loving this gorgeous yellow Italian Crepe paper roll and table runner. The color is so vibrant, your table will never look better! Layer on these 4 glass bud vases and your party is starting to come together. The best part of these bud vases is they look gorgeous with just one or two stems each. You will use them for years to come.
Gold scalloped paper cups are perfect for any crisp cocktail you can come up with. Pop in a mint green striped straw and let the party begin!
Gold chevron printed bamboo forks are not only gorgeous but eco-friendly.
Could these ombre cocktail plates be any more gorgeous?? They just scream SPRING IS HERE! Your guests will be feeling festive when eating off of these.
After a long, cold, wet winter we are all thinking the same thing…YAY SPRING. We love using these “yay” toppers on top of cupcakes or canapés.
We rounded out the assortment with gorgeous mint stripe napkins. They are the perfect addition to this pastel party.
CHEERS everyone !! and Happy First Official day of Spring from LMP!!
