A Beach Picnic in The Hamptons

As the summer comes to end, all we can do is try to make the most of what time is left! Last week, the LMP team headed to the beach for their last outing of the summer in The Hamptons. It was hot, sunny and a perfectly fabulous way to celebrate an amazing summer together.

We laid out our favorite picnic blanket and set up our picnic tray. We brought our beach-safe shatterproof PARTY PEOPLE wine cups and metallic straws for sipping.

We filled up our beverage bucket with our favorite flavors of La Croix and a bottle of Wolffer Rosé. Our favorite drink choice of the day, though, was the Montauk Watermelon beer.

Seri made amazing caprese sandwiches for us, which we enjoyed on our Palm Plates (which are now 50% off, btw!). SO BEACHY.

Our day was made even better because Cousin Jesse was in town! Not only did he help us carry all our supplies to the beach, but he provided endless laughs the whole say- we hope you caught all the fun on Snapchat!

The #LMPSummer was certainly one we will NEVER forget. Thanks for tuning in on the fun, and we can’t wait to show you all what we have in store for fall!

DIY Gold Lawn Flamingos

We’re all about the big trends here at LMP, and the flamingo trend is one we hope never goes out of style. Last summer we bought an amazing set of pink flamingos for the garden at Seri’s Hampton’s house. We decided to give them a chic makeover and style them by the pool for cocktail hour!

This DIY is one of the easiest YET. You will need:

-Lawn Flamingos- use as many as you would like to fill your lawn!
-Metallic Gold Spray Paint- available at Michael’s or your local hardware store.
-Scrap Cardboard- to protect your lawn from the paint.

Step 1: Use something sharp to poke holes through the cardboard, and stand your flamingo up on the grass. You want the flamingo to be upright so you can easily coat it with your spray paint.

Step 2: Thoroughly spray your flamingo with the paint. Don’t spray too close- give some distance so the paint coats evenly!

Step 3: Gather the fam & set up for cocktail hour.

Step 4: Bring in the bar, pick flowers from the garden, and add in your finishing touches. Unpainted flamingos and outdoor pillows for pops of pink to match our favorite pool umbrella brought the whole scene together. Enjoy!

How fun is taco Tuesday?!

I’m sure everyone has a go to meal when you have a crowd to feed. Mine is Tacos. So easy right? And during the summer, the fruits and veggies are so fresh. It’s so colorful and delicious!

Truth me told, I use the store bought box. I pick up a pound or two of fresh ground meat to brown up and set bowls of fresh toppings:

sour cream

cheese

pico de gallo

guacamole

Oh and of course….cocktails.

Abby served Spicy Pineapple Grapefruit Palomas and they were out of this world.

We had leftover pineapple juice from Abby’s cocktail so we turned that into a pitcher of fruity mocktails for the boys. It was the juice combined with all the citrus we could find in the fridge. Yum! They loved being part of the action.

I had leftover herbs so I put them into a small jar of water and picked flowers from the garden to add a little fun to the table.

Now load up corn or flour tacos and ENJOY! Taco Tuesday Rules.

Women who Inspire

After having children I met a few fellow moms through preschool and clients of Little Miss Party Planner, whom I bonded with immediately. Every one of them, is running their own business.

As always, I designed and ordered invitations for Colette to mail to the list of guests from Minted. They have the best selection of invites especially when you’re looking for something sophisticated and classy.

I connected most with women who were inspiring and motivating to me and through each of them I met so many more fabulous women.

It’s remarkable how much talent there is out there and the best part is sharing it with each other.

Just before the summer, my dear friend, Colette Lettieri who has a beautiful home in Westhampton and asked me if I’d like to join her in hosting a party for a group of fabulous women.  Of course I said, YES!

It was a perfect day for rosé and brunch by the pool. I styled the backyard with balloon garlands and florals centering the barcart and creating a stage for photos.

We worked with Sophie from Patio Artistry for floral arrangements in my favorite Dwell vases that I placed around the backyard.

Colette is friends with this wonderful chef, Carol Galanty who came in to make a delicious spread of brunch for the ladies. Carol also gave the guests a cooking demo making summer rolls with her beautiful daughter.  The recipe was super easy to mimic at home so everyone went home with new information that they could use after the party.

Another friend of Colette’s, Christie Hoyt, is a personal fitness trainer and sommelier! Christie worked with Carol to set a Belini bar with an assortment of fresh squeezed juices. Christie also filled the bar cart with tons of rosé which was so nice to sip on that beautiful day.

You know I have a deep obsession with the balloon garlands from One Stylish Party so when I saw the columns on the deck in Colette’s backyard I just to doll them up with tons of balloons!  I styled in fresh florals all through the balloons and added some stems into the bar cart for an unexpected look.

There were so many wonderful woman to chat with at the party and I walked away with tons of  new contacts, an awesome goodie bag and a few new friends. Was a pretty perfect party with Women Who Inspire.
