Flower Power

Today is about using fresh flowers to make pretty crowns just in time for spring…which is TODAY! Happy Spring everyone.

We recently brought a new team member on board, the most fantastic intern, Natalie who has been a great asset to our team. Her greatest skill in the LMP Office: flower arranging. Could she fit in any better?

She lead a flower crown making workshop for us and we of course turned it into a party. What a fun way to spend a morning with friends, huh?! We served a simple breakfast with fresh pastries, croissants and a enormous sweet brioche that we found at our local bakery. Abby brewed a pot of coffee and of course we toasted with pink bubbly.

If you plan to host a flower crown making party, ask your friends to dress for the season and no doubt they will pull out some pretty fabulous pops of color…

Here’s how you can make these flowers crowns with a few materials (easily found on Amazon) and a lotta flowers (if you live in warm climate then check your backyard first!).

Supplies:
Floral Wire
Floral tape
Good scissors
Leafy florals (ie. Italian ruscus, babies breath, spray roses)

1. Take your floral wire and fit it around your head so that you know how long it needs to be.

2. Shape the floral wire into a circle and then twist the end in order to keep it in place at the length you need. (For added security, make the length even longer and wrap the extra around the crown to make it thicker).

3. Take your floral tape and begin wrapping it around the entire crown (Make sure you are gently pulling the tape as your wrap, so that the tape becomes sticky).

4. Begin making small bouquets with your flowers and greenery. Then wrap the ends with the floral tape.

5. Take a long piece of greenery and twist it around the crown, then secure with floral tape.

6. Add in the small bouquets and secure with floral tape, add or subtract to your liking.

7. Take some pictures and have fun!

Abby’s Waves & Braids

For this weeks Beauty with Brittany Lo post, I’m talking about another hair look from the recent Fifty Shades Darker party that the ladies of LMP shot in their studio for Valentine’s Day!

Because this shoot was inspired by the new Fifty Shades Darker movie, the ladies wanted their looks to be a bit sexier.  Abby and Natasha of Beautini looked through some inspiration, and decided on this fun waves and braids look!

Here’s how to do it:

Step 1) Curl your hair with a 1.25″ curling iron


Step 2) Section your front into 5 different sections. The top section (the third one in) should be centered and slightly wider than the side braids. Start by braiding the top section and then proceed braiding the side sections.


Step 3) Once all five braids are completed, secure them al together creating a ponytail. Wrap a piece of hair around the elastic to cover it.


Step 4) Spray a little hair spray and you are all set!

This look is quite simple, and adds some unexpected variety to the typical half up, half down hairstyle!

Until next time…

Xo,
B.Lo

Bachelorette Limeade Punch

Wedding season is around the corner, and with it comes plenty of bachelorette parties! Personally, I have 5 weddings to go to between May and September, and for one of those I am in the Bridal party, and I have a hand in helping to plan the bachelorette party!

Thankfully, we just launched our newest party in a box, The Bachelorette Bash, which comes with all the decor, games and tableware you and your friends need for an epic bachelorette party.  Also included in each box is our gorgeous party blueprint, which provides step by step instructions on how to throw your own LMP-style celebration.

Within the blueprint, we include an original cocktail recipe that I developed for a Bubbly Bachelorette Limeade Punch, which is TO DIE FOR. It’s also super easy!

Here’s what you need:

-sparkling rosé (we recommend cans of Babe Rosé)
-2 cans frozen limeade concentrate
-3 liters of water
-2 oz. simple syrup
-freshly squeezed juice of 1 large orange
-fresh orange and lime slices
-fresh mint
-ice

Here’s what to do:

1) In a large punch bowl, combine frozen limeade with water, simple syrup and orange juice.  Stir to mix.  Add in a few cups of ice.


2) Top with slices of fresh oranges and limes.  Add mint to garnish.


3) When serving, fill each champagne flute about 1/4 of the way.  Top with your sparkling rosé to fill the rest of the glass.


4) Garnish with fresh orange wedge and sprig of mint!

As an alternative, if your celebrating a bachelorette party with any ladies who are pregnant or don’t drink, you can swap out the rosé for some club soda! Still bubbly and super yummy.

Happy bachelorette-ing! We hope you and your gals have a blast, and don’t forget to get your own Bachelorette Bash in a Box before they are gone! Shop the box here.

Until next week!

xx, Abby

Birthday Glamping

When I was a kid, I loved nothing more than slumber parties with my girlfriends. How much fun was it to gather your girlfriends, throw down our sleeping bags in the basement and stay up all night gabbing away about boys!

When our latest event popped up with a “Glamping” (glam camping) theme we couldn’t have been more excited!

This party was for a 7 year old gal, Elizabeth. She had grey and white polka dot tents that we put up with pink fairy lights and hot pink pillows for her friends to lounge around inside of.

We also set up a trail mix bar including Elizabeth’s favorite cereals, popcorn, candy and marshmallows! The girls were able to load up on their favorite snacks and enjoy while they later watched a movie all cozy in Elizabeth’s dim-lit basement.

This party brought back so many wonderful memories of being a little girl! What a fun way to celebrate a birthday. Happy 7th Birthday, Elizabeth!
