How To Host: The Perfect Picnic

Today…we’re going on a picnic. The weather has warmed up, the farmer’s markets in full swing and we want to GET OUTSIDE!

Having a picnic with your friends is so easy…if you’re organized. Assume there is nothing at the park so you have to bring it all. If you come prepared, you’ll have the most fabulous time.

When I go on a picnic I like to pack a little lunch box for each of my friends so we’re not scrambling at the park with serving a lot of different dishes. I make sandwiches, pack up fruit and add a sweet treat.

Nothing compliments a picnic more perfectly than lemonade. I buy a store bought bottle and add in sliced strawberries, lemon rounds and a few sprigs of mint.

The cherries looked so perfect so I grabbed a bag and ditto for the mini apple pie that I found in the Union Square Farmer’s Market.

I couldn’t resist grabbing a bunch of lilacs to bring along with us. They smelled so amazing and looked so pretty on our picnic blanket.

Since there’s a lot to schlep over to the park when having a picnic, I ask my friends to meet me at my apartment so they can help carry all the supplies and we can walk to the park together.

I brought a long a few paper plates, plastic cups and a knife to cut the pie. I also brought a paper bag for our trash and of course blankets and pillows.

We may or may not have snuck in a few cans of bubbly…shhhh.  Keep that on the down low.

See how to host the perfect picnic with our latest “How to Host” video. Enjoy!

Tell us what you think about our Host to Host the perfect picnic video and we will draw one lucky person to win our GET OUTSIDE party in a box – shipped in a picnic basket! Winner will be announced on Wednesday May 24th at 3pm.

    I love a picnic. Most ppl think a sandwich and a blanket is enough but I love the extra touches like flowers (and bubbly).

  2. Celinda

    I have been dying to use my picnic basket ! Thanks for the idea … my cousin just had a baby last month and this could be just the right outing for us ! Thanks for the tip on the pie

A Bachelorette Bash with DivaDance

You know we’re in the thick of wedding season right now. May flowers bring weddings, bachelorettes and bridal showers!

Now when we launched the Little Miss Bachelorette Party in a Box we wanted to know how girls would be celebrating with it…so we did our research.

What did we discover? Lots. One of the best finds? DivaDance. We were immediately intrigued so we got in touch to find out what this DivaDance was all about.

I received a response immediately. And not just any response, but the most enthusiastic, excited to connect with us response ever.

Head Diva, founder and CEO Jami Stigliano was thrilled we found her and the feeling was mutual. She explained how DivaDance works and it was exactly how we hoped…

DivaDance is a full blown dance party for you and your friends. A cool, ready to “slay” professional dancer shows up and teaches your group an easy to follow dance routine. They offer DivaDance classes in NYC for folks who want to dance off some steam, get a work out, meet new people and have fun. We of course were all over this dance class and tested one to find out if we could keep up…

We had a blast and had a smile on our faces for the entire hour. It was so much fun.

And don’t be fooled, no one in the class knew how to dance. That’s part of the fun of it is just going with the moves and enjoying the music. you guys no seriously, it’s so fun!

We knew after not only meeting Jami in person but dancing with Jami that we were a match made in heaven.

We love to dance

+

We love to party.

Boom.

So now let’s talk about DivaDance and Little Miss Party.

PARTY PEOPLE:
What’s the occasion?
Think Sister’s 35th birthday party
Friend’s Bachelorette
Girls just wanna have fun

Gather your gals, pop that confetti and make it festive, dance and have FUN.

Here’s how you make this happen:
Book your DivaDance party here.
Order your Little Miss Party in a Box for all tableware + decor and guess what?  We have a discount code for you! Enter LMPlovesDivaDance at checkout and save 10%!
Invite your friends over.
Pick up some prosecco + maybe a few cupcakes…
PARTY!

Was that a joke?  Sounds too easy right? Well it is THAT EASY.

Naturally, we like to keep our glasses full with bubbly, wine and water, duh!  Have to hydrate.

Bottom line you guys…if you like to have fun, sing and dance your heart out to great music with a few cocktails to follow then we’ve got you.

Want to learn more about the DivaDance classes and pop ups around the country? Make sure you’re signed up for the DD Newsletter.

We love you Jami!  You are the ultimate DIVA! We LOVE dancing + partying with you, girl. Mwah!

Party with a Red Nose

This post was created in partnership with Walgreens, but all thoughts and opinions are our own. 

We host, coordinate, style and attend A LOT of parties every month. These days, people go all out. Parties are not how I remember them as a kid. Now we take parties to a whole other level styling every detail, making our food look good enough to photograph and spoiling our kids rotten to think that this is all normal.

Sometimes, it’s important to take a step back and consider how lucky we are especially around here at Little Miss Party where we live life like a party.

I wanted to gather this group of friends together from my kids’ school. In both of my son’s classes some of the kids had missed each other’s birthday parties. So they could still all celebrate together, I hosted a small celebration.

I kept the party simple and made it more like a playdate. I served pizza, cake and we had our girl Melinda of Children’s Parties NYC come over to do a little face paint. She’s magical and paints a kid’s face in less than 5 minutes….and it looks like this:

I wanted to send home each kid with a little something but I didn’t want it to be a useless piece of junk or something super sugary.

My local Walgreens and Duane Reade drugstores are selling Red Noses which supports programs that help children living in poverty in the U.S. and internationally. The moment I saw the Red Noses back in the store I knew that was the perfect favor with both meaning and fun.

At our celebration as the kids were having a ball putting on the noses to take photos with, I took the opportunity to explain to the kids that there are children in the world who not only have no money for birthday parties but have no money for clothes, food and for some, a roof over their head.

At the end of this conversation we asked the kids if they had any questions. Some did and some ran off to play. It’s up to us to teach them and I so love how fun the noses are making it easier to raise the awareness.

From now until May 25th, Little Miss Party will be donating Red Noses in every Little Miss Party in a Box sale…and we would love to feature your photos! For those who purchase our limited time offer, party boxes with the Red Nose included, please share with the hashtags #RedNose #LMPinaBox

Happy Birthday, Friends!

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!
