Frozen in the Hamptons

This winter we had the pleasure of doing three Frozen themed birthday parties. There was a whole lot of “Let it Go” being sung, princess dresses worn and tiaras set on top of little girls heads.
Since Frozen paraphernalia is pretty much everywhere you turn we wanted to play off the characters and color palette of teal, purple and silver to make the theme a little more chic…
This particular party that we are featuring today was for the sweet girls who belong to Colette Lettieri. We came in one night and transformed their kitchen into a Frozen wonderland for the girls to wake up to.
A large marquee star from Restoration Hardware set the stage for bagels & schmear, our favorite way to serve up brunch. We styled purple and white flowers around the room. And of course we set up jumbo balloons from One Stylish Party with tissue tassel to boot.
For the desserts we created a magical table with our friend Angela from Making that Cake. Cake pops topped with purple glitter, ombre rice krispie squares, mini cupcakes that we styled onto a bed of blue jelly beans and a cake topped with snowflakes!

My favorite part of this party was the new discovery that we made with Imagination Lane. Deanna, the founder of this company creates custom crafts for kids tailored to specific themes or interests.
She put together the most amazing activities for the kids at this party such as “Do you want to build a snowman”? Snowmen were waiting for the kids to stick with felt for noses and arms, googly eyes and fabric markers to decorate. Kept them busy and happy!
Then…there was the tumble bus. Have you ever seen this? A bus pulls right onto your driveway and the kids can go inside and TUMBLE! Genius.
Happy Birthday to our new friends, Lexi & Sloan. Hope you had the party of your dreams ladies!

A Pop Up Party

Ok have you ever heard of a Pop Up Party? I hadn’t. Until my friends over at Flatiron 27 put this together…you’ve gotta check it out…
PopUpParty 2 12.16.14
With the holidays fast approaching, having a fully stocked bar is a must - particularly if you are hosting a New Years Eve party. Flatiron27 was inspired to create a sparkling-chic cocktail cart by our friend Little Miss Party and Little Miss New Years Eve in a box. The black and gold themed party in a box couldn’t make hosting a New Years party any easier - or more stylish. It comes with everything you need to host a bash - from the decorations, to the champagne flutes and party hats. All you need to buy is the champagne! We found an incredibly cool vintage Italian bar cart on 1st Dibs (here is one more option) and stocked it full of fun bar essentials including a Bauhaus cocktail shakerShagreen Tray and lots of metallic accents. Read on to see how we plan to decorate – and celebrate New Years in style!

A Wintry Chic Hamptons Baby Shower

Hamptons Baby Shower10
We are thrilled to be sharing this beautiful baby shower that we recently styled in the Hamptons for a fabulous ring of women. After meeting Karilyn Sanders who we quickly discovered is a wildly talented photographer, we were introduced to Colette Letterei who we connected with instantly.

Colette was hosting a baby shower for her dear friend, and asked that we come in to style the event for her friend and Mother-To-Be to baby Shay.
Hamptons Baby Shower23
We immediately played off the chilly season and came up with a wintry palette of evergreen, birch, gold and white. We threw in pops of pink as a nod to baby Shay.

The ladies were greeted in Colette’s great room with a roaring fire and hors d’ouevres served by Sydney’s Tailormade Cuisine.

In this room we also set up a cider bar with a station of serve yourself toppings including star anise, gingered orange rinds and dried cranberries.

The ladies enjoyed a family style lunch in what may have been one of the most beautiful dining rooms we have set to date. We found placemats from Crate and Barrel that looked like a shade of birch wood, gold flatware from West Elm (obsessed), pink with gold polka dot cloth napkins from Layla Grayce and of course we decked the table with pumpkins and owls that we sprayed gold. We filled some of our gold pumpkins and milk glass vases with eucalyptus which looked festive and smelled wonderful.

Over coffee and tea the gals indulged in a beautiful pink ombre filled cake by Carolena’s Cakes. We found an “Oh, Baby” topper from the Pink Poppy Party Shoppe on Etsy and loved how it glittered.

We were surprised to find out that Karilyn not only takes beautiful photos but also knits! She made these adorable booties and had also knit a pair of mittens for her friend Heidi’s new baby…
Hamptons Baby Shower14
For some fun, Karilyn’s friend who started a genius business called Craft Box DIY To Go created three personalized crafts just for Heidi and baby Shay. Each box contained a craft: DIY bows and headbands, hand painted blocks for Shay’s nursery, and an adorable banner that said “Hush Little Baby”. The guests got their hands dirty and had a great time with this.

To send the ladies off with a little something special, everyone took home a large, deliciously scented candle from Pier 1.

Dark Romance at Little Owl – The Venue

When my friend Ilana asked if I wanted to help her style an intimate birthday dinner I knew exactly where and how. I have been dying to throw a party at Little Owl – The Venue. Little Owl is one of my favorite restaurants in the city located in the West Village, serving seasonal comfort food. When I noticed they had opened a private event space, I was dying to work there.
My mind was instantly rolling with ideas as soon as we saw the space. And Ilana was sold as soon as she tasted their famous sliders. The staff couldn’t have been kinder and more accommodating the food proved to be insanely delicious.
They made specialty drinks for the night and set up a cocktail hour followed by a sit down dinner.
Of course we designed beautiful menus to go at each setting.
After brainstorming with my sister a little bit, dark romance quickly became the perfect theme for this space and dinner party.
Michelle had recently discovered Drop it Modern, who sells gorgeously chic balloons in metallic colors and marbled patterns. There was a wood bar that set up perfectly with these fabulous balloons.
I worked with our friend Clarelicious on chocolate dipped pears accompanied by kraft paper leaves to write each of the name cards for the place settings.
For the cake, I found lots of inspiration on Pinterest and sent it over to our friends at Empire Cake. I brought over fresh flowers to have topped on the cake and they nailed it with the sugar rose cupcakes. Dare I say the desserts were too pretty to eat…
To wish Ilana well we set up a station where her guests could write a note, snap a photo and create an instant scrapbook. She was elated and so happy to have such a sweet memory of the evening.
To send everyone home on a sweet note, we set up Mast Brothers chocolate bars with belly bands that were personalized from Ilana.
The evening was a huge success, the guests had a blast and Ilana the birthday girl got to celebrate in style!

Harlow Turned 2 with an LMP in a Box

PicMonkey Collage
If you haven’t already heard all the buzz….we’ll be the first to tell you that we have officially launched Little Miss Party in a Box!
Imagine…you have a party to throw, no time to put it together but you order one of our boxes and it arrives on your doorstep so all you have to do is set it up! Order some food, add drinks and voila! You’ve got yourself a party.
Our friend Ilana of Mommy Shorts, wanted to throw a low key party for her daughter, Harlow’s 2nd birthday. I asked her if she would be a test case for one of our feature boxes: Little Miss Birthday Party in a Box. She was thrilled.
For Harlow’s first birthday I went all out and helped put on a PJ’s & Pancakes themed brunch. For her other daughter Mazzy we pulled a miracle Milk n Cookie’s 3rd birthday. And of course then there was the joint Superhero party for my son Gavin and Ilana’s husband Mike.
For Harlow’s 2nd…I dropped the box off…and LEFT. Ilana set it all up by herself, ordered bagels, served coffee and mimosas and guess what? I got to be a GUEST! Was quite the feeling. And I was so proud to see how she turned our box into a beautiful party! Even my little one was in awe of it all…
The most difficult task Ilana had from the items in our box was finding a spot to hang this banner….
We even include bags for the favors…!
Harlow woke up to her home fully set up and ready to party. She couldn’t wait for her friends to arrive!
And when they did…they didn’t waste any time…
Ilana is not a baker BUT was so inspired by the cupcake kit that comes in our box she baked some cupcakes. Out of a box. Because why not? SO easy, kids love em and we give you the liners and the flags to make them look extra pretty!
Let me allow my son Luke to model these cupcakes on the adorable Happy Birthday dessert plates that we include in this birthday box for you…
Another really cool feature of our LMP in a Box is that we include a party blueprint full of tips to complete your party and suggestions for setting it all up.
I LOVE that Ilana actually followed along!!
There’s a huge jumbo balloon filled with confetti and a string of really pretty tissue tassel hand made by one of our fabulous partners, One Stylish Party. In the blueprint we advise you take this balloon to your local party store OR florist! Bet you didn’t think to ask the florist down the road if they have a helium tank. Well I’m sure that they do! While you’re there…pick up a couple stems of flowers and then place them in jars that you find in your home – milk bottles, wine bottles or I’m sure you have a vase lying around…no need to spend a lot of money.
Ilana even took it all a step further…she decided to get crafty with the cake. The perfect way to bring in a theme to this LMP in a Box! With a white cake for the base Ilana took a glue gun, toilet paper roll, some pretty paper and M&M’s and made the prettiest carousal cake I’ve ever seen.
The perfect party it was.
Are you sold? I bet. Click here to purchase your very own Little Miss Birthday Party in a Box and save yourself the headache of trying to plan all the details on your own!
