The Home Edit for LMP

Many moons ago, I worked in fashion. Back in my fashion days, I met some really awesome people. One girl, Rachel, ended up being a best friend, fast. As Rachel and I got to know each other, I met her friends. One of her friends was named Clea. She was always a chic, cool girl who I enjoyed getting to know.

The years went on and we all got busy with life, kids, careers, etc. Clea moved to Nashville and I hadn’t seen her in years.  I would always ask Rachel about her until one day, I no longer had to ask how she was doing. I could see for myself….

Clea started a business called The Home Edit. I noticed her new venture on Instagram and was immediately drawn in as I too am totally OCD and obsessed with organizing.

The Home Edit is a service where Clea and her partner Joanna, and now team of amazing organizers come into your home and edit your closets for you. They analyze your junk, work with you to purge, shop for containers to sort is all in to and then leave you with a closet full of organized chaos.

When I found out that Clea + Joanna travel all over the country to organize people’s closets I said….come on over girls!

Their team spent one day in our office and when they were done we were in awe of what they had done. They organized our party supplies by type making it so easy to find inventory when we need it and of course labeled each container with their signature calligraphy.

I’m so in love with our closets I never want to touch them again in fear that I may move something out of place.

Thank you Clea, Joanna, Nick & Sumner for spending the day making the LMP office perfectly organized! You guys are amazing.

xx, Seri

How to Host a Garden Party

Our new Little Miss Shower Party in a Box is quite possibly the cutest selection of party supplies we’ve ever seen. Since you have the option to choose between a script balloon that says “love” or “baby,” you can really use it for any occasion! We chose Love, for a bridal shower, and we glammed it up with this glitter balloon DIY.

Last week, we hosted this bridal shower in Seri’s backyard and recorded every step so you can see EXACTLY how she made it look so fabulous. It was easy, fast, and beyond gorgeous. This How to Host episode will show you how to prep your meal, set your table, and serve your drinks. Below the video, you will find printable cards with the shopping lists and links for everything we made!

Watch and LEARN! Seri is the hosting queen, and she’s ready to show you just how easy it is to do yourself.

Daniella’s Bachelorette Bash with our Party in a Box

Ok, how perfect is the Bachelorette Party in a Box? I think the day that Little Miss Party released it I sent a group text to my bridesmaids telling them my bachelorette absolutely needed it. They were onboard and then told me that my work was done and they had the rest handled…..with wedding planning this is exactly what a bride wants to hear! As a someone who is obsessed with all things wedding and party related, by passing this Party in a Box off to my bridesmaids I was able to rest easy knowing the party was going to be the most tasteful, gorgeous bachelorette.

My bridesmaids hosted a pre-party at my condo in Toronto using the box. We had gone to Her Majesty’s Pleasure in the afternoon, which is a chic nail and hair salon, to get party ready. We then we popped over to Gusto 101 for a quick dinner before coming back to get the bachelorette fun underway!

Since we had eaten, we kept the food light and simple: veggies, popcorn, and chips to munch on. We had sugar cookies that guests could take as favors, and a cake that had the line “One Penis Forever”, because it’s the truth and it’s really as vulgar as we wanted this party to get.

We made a huge batch of sangria to use as our signature drink – the neon champagne flutes were perfect for this! We did a big group cheers and started to party.

One of the most fun parts of my bachelorette party was that my bridesmaids hired a “butler” from Butlers in the Buff. This was such a great alternative to someone else that may come to the party…. You know, the guy who is dressed up as a police officer and tells you that you’re party is too loud…… Our butler was such a gentleman and was so much fun to have around! He made us drinks, poured us extra champagne, helped us with our party games, and took photobooth photos for us. Oh and he helped us put on our “Bride Tribe” tattoos from the box! All while giving us a great view of his back side.

Just to throw this out there…..I hate bridal, wedding, bachelorette cheese. If I never have to dress someone in a toilet paper wedding dress I will be a happy girl. So, here are my top three non-cheesey games for bachelorette parties (and they happen to be the three games we played!):

1) Who Knows The Bride Best (….this is included in the Party in a Box and it was such a hit!): Guests answer a card full questions about the bride. The person with the most correct answers wins and gets to hand out five shots to party-goers!

2) The-Almost-Newlywed Game: Bridesmaids come up with a list of questions for the groom to answer (i.e. Where was your first kiss? Tip: There are tons of question ideas on Pinterest!). Keep answers recorded then ask the bride the same questions. Provide a white board and marker for her to write on her answers on. If she gets the question right and her answer is the same as the groom’s she hands out a shot, if she gets the answer different from the groom, she takes a shot! My sister scored extra points and she actually videotaped my fiancé saying his answers out loud and hooked up her phone to the TV so we got to see him answer the question, which was so much fun! Another note…. I got 7 out of 12 questions wrong. Yup. I took 7 shots in less than 15 minutes.

3) Porn or Polish: All over Pinterest there are lists of nail polishes that may be mistaken for the name of an adult movie. We had a list of questions and bicycle bells. The person running the game says the title, and the first to ring in answers if it is a porn or polish. Of course, loser takes a shot and calls up the next girl to battle!

After the games we blasted our LMP Spotify Playlist and hopped into the photobooth! You’ll notice that we had tinsel backdrop and “she said yaaaas” banner for our table AND for our photobooth backdrop. Well, that’s because the ladies at Little Miss Party are so accommodating and love to customize their boxes. We fell in love with the backdrop and knew we needed it for behind the table and for the photobooth. All it took was one quick email and our box was customized to include the extra items. I mean, how easy is that?

Photobooths need props! We found a website that sold printable bachelorette themed props, printed them off onto card stock at Staples, and hot glued a wooden dowel from the dollar store to the back.

Ladies, if your friend or sister or anyone you know is engaged and you’re planning a bachelorette, you absolutely need this Little Miss Party in a Box. It made our party planning so simple, easy, and the end result was absolutely stunning. Can we all make a pact to eliminate penis straws and feather boas from our bachelorette vocabulary?

xoxo, Daniella

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.

How to host a grown up birthday party

It’s HERE! The Grown Up Party in a Box and it’s super fabulous! Where do I even begin with this…?!

First of all, let’s talk about the cups that our amazing Maggie Antalek designed for Govino. Govino is our favorite wine glass company who make shatterproof wine glasses that are perfect for entertaining – especially outdoors! PARTY PEOPLE in the houseeeee!

We are even more obsessed with the new script balloons from Northstar our favorite letter balloon vendor. No helium is required for these balloons you just use the straw that it comes with to inflate with air.  Stick a piece of tape on the back and adhere to the wall for an instant backdrop.

Now let’s talk about the gold splatter painted plates we found from these amazing gals who we found on Etsy. Seriously how stunning are these plates?! Almost too stunning to eat off of.

We included so many more fabulous items in this box such as gold glittered plastic utensils, a stunning set of balloons, metallic gold straws, confetti and candles.

Now who’s ready to PARTY?! WE ARE!
