Ruby Red Gin & Tonic

I’ve made a lot of cocktails during my time at LMP and have loved most of them, but sometimes one just stands out from the rest… and this weeks is one of those special ones.

This Thursday, we will be co-hosting an event with our favorite handbag company, MZ Wallace, at their showroom in Soho.  For part of the event, I will be leading a cocktail demo! I knew that I had to pick a drink that would be simple, yet beautiful, so I decided to feature a fruit that has an incredible color… the winner? Ruby Red Grapefruit Gin & Tonic with Rosemary.

Here’s what you need:
-gin (we used Tanqueray)
-tonic water
-ruby red grapefruit juice
-honey
-fresh ruby red grapefruits
-1 inch piece of fresh grapefruit peel
-fresh limes
-fresh rosemary
-ice

Here’s what to do:
1) In a cocktail shaker, combine some pieces of a ruby red grapefruit peel, a splash of ruby red grapefruit juice, rosemary leaves, 1 tbsp. honey and a splash of gin. Muddle together ingredients.


2) Once muddled, add a few pieces of ice to shaker.
3) On top of ice, add 2 oz. gin, 4 oz. tonic, 4 oz. grapefruit juice, and 1/2 oz. lime juice to your cocktail shaker. Shake well to mix.


4) Add a large ice cube to each glass. Pour mixture from cocktail shaker through strainer over ice.


5) Garnish with grapefruit wedge, lime slice and sprig of rosemary.

I love how vibrant and fresh this cocktail looks, and it is the perfect balance of sweet and bitter.

If you are in the NYC area this Thursday, feel free to join us at MZ Wallace to learn how to make this cocktail, sample it, and meet the LMP team in person! You can RSVP here. More info below!

Until next week…. Cheers!

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!

xx, Maggie

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!

A Dreamy First birthday

I’m sure you’ve heard of first birthday shoots before. The baby of honor sits around smashing a cake with perfectly styled props all around him or her. Well thats what we had the pleasure of working on just a few weeks ago, except we took it to a whole other level.

The backdrop for this posh shoot was in our client’s Brooklyn apartment. The clean white lines served as a blank canvas for us to work off of. The wooden dinning table, being the star of the show.

All shoots must have a theme, and for this we went with a rustic bubble bath. Doesn’t sound like it would work right? Well it did, oh so chicly. We blew up huge jumbo balloons to act as bubbles, these were floating all around the floor and were kept on hand to throw up in the air as pictures were taken of the guest of honor.

No bubble bath is complete without rubber duckies. Thats why for this we had to incorporate them, but with an edge. We found ducks of all different shapes and sizes and sprayed them a metallic silver and then glued glitter crowns to each for a festive look.

For a dramatic look on the table, Natalie created an all white floral runner down the center of the table, hanging off down to the floor.

To create dimension on the book shelves that we styled, we took old library books and covered them with pretty paper. Maggie hand wrote words, the birthday and name of the child on each. For extra texture, we threw in honeycombs and paper lanterns so that we would have a variety for our “bubbles”.

First birthdays mean big, fabulous cakes. We worked with our favorite Brooklyn bakery, Nine Cakes, who knows how to master the “naked” cake look. We’re sure you’ve seen the trend happening on Pinterest. Each table setting had its own person cake and we had larger ones styled around our runner.

The pictures turned out better than we could have ever imagined thanks to Dave Robbins Photography. These photos will definitely be keepsakes for this happy family for years to come.

    Absolutely love this theme and the soft neutral tones and white light. Its all so delicate and lovely. The bubbles are such a unique and charming touch. Love it all! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Princess & Tiaras

    This just looks so perfect! Surely the soft natural hues give it a whole new feel. It comes across as one of the most amazing birthday party theme for 1st birthday of babies.
