Snacks N’ Sips for Halloween

Halloween Fun9
I think by now you know we love to eat and drink things that are pretty and simple to make. So here’s what we’ve been serving up this month for play dates, cocktail hour and parties.
Skewers: You can put pretty much anything on a stick these days. We took yellow grape tomatoes and mozzarella and thread onto short bamboo picks. We lay em’ over a bed of basil in a small cast iron pan. Note…these will go FAST. Make a lot. And prep in advance so you have ready to go when you’re guests arrive!

Witches Brooms: Mini Reese Peanut Butter Cups + pretzel rods = broomsticks! Does it get easier then this?

There are so many easy ways to throw a party. Well we say that cause we have been doing it for years. Today we’re going to tell you exactly how you can host your friends for a themed holiday party…like Halloween. So get those invites out, you still have time! And let’s get planning…

Decorate:
-Black, White, Orange and Gold – your color palette.
-Tissue combs (they look like pumpkins and are easy to hang) and gold lanterns.
-Candles, candles and more candles. Whatever you have around. Even use recycled glass jars from your kitchen.
-Use household items for a vase for fresh flowers. We used a skull shaped plastic pitcher and spray painted it gold. Then added some fresh flowers that we found in the farmers market.
-Carve out the inside of a medium sized pumpkin and line with a bowl or napkin. Fill with Deviled Chex™ Mix and set on the table with stripe paper cups for your guests to fill.

Add a Fun Twist to Your Favorite Party Dish: Top your cupcakes with Halloween chocolate. Add crushed Chex to the melted chocolate before filling your Halloween chocolate molds and add an extra crunch to your bite. Here’s how we made these spooky and sweet treats…
-Crush 1 cup of your favorite Chex™ cereal (we used Cinnamon Chex™) in a bag.
-Place chocolate chips or discs (we used a 12oz bag) into a microwave safe bowl.
-Heat the chocolate in stages of 30 seconds giving a stir in between until all chocolate is fully melted.
-Add the crushed Chex™ into the bowl of melted chocolate and stir.
-Pour or spoon the melted chocolate mixture into your graveyard hand mold tray. Let the tray set in the fridge for at least 15 minutes.
-Pop your Graveyard hands out, top your cupcakes and enjoy!

We did the same with a skull mold and put them on sticks. We stuck them into a gold sprayed pumpkin so guests can grab and go.

Something to Wet Your Whistle: Set up a Bloody scary Mary bar. Fill your skull pitcher with tomato juice and add the trimmings alongside.  Olives, mini pickles, limes, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce and celery salt will make for a killer cocktail.  Use your witches cauldron as a tub to fill with ice and a spirit of your choice for your guests to spike if they like. Set out napkins, cups, straws and stir sticks for a make your own cocktail station.

A Little Something Extra: Send your family or guests home with a gory treat by filling black and white striped favor bags with Chocolate Chex™ cereal and attach a recipe for the Red Velvet Chex™ Party Mix.

Don’t feed the Animals

There’s nothing more rewarding then having a client call one year after their baby shower to say “Girls, my baby is turning one! Will you help make the party fun?”. That’s exactly what happened here. One year ago we put on the most beautiful baby shower at Da Andrea and now we are celebrating this little man’s first with a Safari party at Citibabes.
We had so much fun with the details at this party.
safari4
From safari pith hats to gold spray painted elephants, there were so many adorable touches at this party.

We worked with Angela of Making that Cake on the delicious sweets such as candy dipped pretzel rods, cupcakes and chocolate covered marshmallows. She also made us the most fabulous animals to go on top of the cake.
safari14
We worked with Tara of One Stylish Party on the jumbo balloons and safari colored tissue tassel and which looked gorgeous on our food tables.
safari8
Lunch was catered by Le Pan Quotidien and we brought in the drinks.
safari16
A “safari” sangria, lemon ice tea and beers on ice for the adults.
safari5
An extra special treat for the kids was chocolate milk. We wrapped ribbon around milk bottles so they could grab and slurp out of birch tree patterned straws.
safari15
For signage, table confetti and bunting we turned to our friends at Minted. They have the most amazing line of jungle party decor that was so perfectly fit for this party!
safari13
Citibabes is an awesome venue for kids birthday parties. They have so many great packages to choose from and the staff is so hands on it’s a dream. You really don’t have to worry about a thing. For this party the guests enjoyed animals of all kinds who were roaming around and there for the kids to touch.
safari11
I kinda wanted to take this turtle home with me but got caught when I tried to walk out with him…
safari12
No party is complete without a little favor to take home. These guests took home the most beautiful animal cookies from Sweet Dani B. Individually wrapped these cookies were as beautiful as they were delicious!

To one of our favorite families – happy birthday to your little man!  We are always so honored to be a part of your special events and look forward to celebrating many more happy occasions together.

XO, I love you.

chexshower1
When throwing a shower there’s no reason not to keep it super simple. Less is more. White is chic.
We recently styled a shoot for a wedding shower and took a stab at a few Chex Party Mix recipes to serve up and I gotta tell you something…um, wow. I developed a major addiction.
chexshower4
While Michelle slaved away with Marshmallow fluff in the kitchen…I was trying to set the scene. But the sweet and saucy smell drew me in and I soon found myself knee deep in The Wedding Day Chex Mix.
To serve we found the most adorable letter bowls to spell out XO.
chexshower2
From the cupboard we had an old square of fabric which we turned into a triangle runner.
To drink we used shatterproof champagne glasses. Ready to toast the bride to be!
Have you ever tried the Sofia Coppola cans of champagne?  They are the cutest.
What’s a party without stripe-y straws? I mean c’mon. Don’t.
My favorite thing about a shower? A good favor. Cartons of that Wedding Day Chex Mix, Yes please. Tie it with a fat piece of hot pink ribbon and there you go. Thanks for coming!

Of course if you are having a shower in the NYC area and need a photographer….we will tell you to call on Raquel. She was the darling photographer of the photos you see in this post today.

Eat our decorations.

When designing a party we get pretty nuts with the decor. For some reason we just can’t contain ourselves. We live for those ridiculously chic details that makes a party stylish.
Of course…there’s nothing as important as the food. Keep everyone happy by having a nosh on something delicious throughout your celebration.
So we were thinking…
What if…
We could eat our decorations?

LMP loves cereal, especially when its sweet, crunchy, bright and bold.
Well lucky for us…we got to work with General Mills on an awesome project for Trix. Every day this week we will be telling you all about the new fruitier flavors that Trix has released to the shelves…and how we styled these delicious puffs! Make sure you check back daily for all of the amazing details. DIY tutorials, a special interview with a surprise, Canadian friend, a giveaway and more!

After coming up with super fun and some silly ways to use Trix cereal as party decor, we got to build a special edition of Little Miss Party in a Box for Trix. We sent out these boxes to some notable friends and cannot wait to hear what they think…
trix1
Since the theme here is edible décor…let us show you some fun ways to play with your food!
trix4
Let me ask you a question: Could it get any easier then this? Take yogurt of your liking (my fave is vanilla) and layer it with crushed and whole Trix. Add whatever else you wish in there such as fruit, granola, shredded coconut, you name it. Gorgeous, delicious, boom. Brightens up the room and makes a great dish for brunch.
