Batman + Superman Turn 5,42

A Halloween Birthday20
When a five year old kid has a clear vision of what he wants his birthday party to be you cannot help but make sure you follow through and go all out.

This summer Gavin started gearing up for his birthday very early as he was often conversing with his best friend, Mazzy’s Dad, Mike about their birthdays falling on the same day.
All summer long Gavin would tell Mike - we’re going to have a superhero bowling party, together.
Mike always agreed.
And here we are today.
Was the biggest blast. Celebrating a 5 year old boy and 42 year old man.

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?

Halloween BOO-tifully styled with Chex Party Mix and a Giveaway!

I think you may know by we now we are total suckers for the holidays. Especially starting in the fall. Halloween and Thanksgiving….We can’t get enough. Every year we hope to out do the last.
Well this year we teamed up with Chex cereal to build a Little Miss Halloween Party in a Box and we are so excited to show you how we styled all of the fabulous components. PLUS…we are giving one away! So stay with us here to find out how you can enter to win!
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…
-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.
We are super excited to be giving away a Little Miss Halloween Party in a Box! One lucky winner will receive a box on their doorstep filled with all of the essentials to throw a Halloween themed party.
Rules to enter:
-Must be a Little Miss Party follower on Instagram or Facebook.
-Must be a US or Canadian Resident.
-Leave a comment and tell us why you love Halloween or how you plan to celebrate.
All entries will be put into a witch’s cauldron and a lucky winner will be drawn on Wednesday October 15th.

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.
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.
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.
Lunch was catered by Le Pan Quotidien and we brought in the drinks.
A “safari” sangria, lemon ice tea and beers on ice for the adults.
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.
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!
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.
I kinda wanted to take this turtle home with me but got caught when I tried to walk out with him…
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.

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.
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.
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.
