Our current winter obsession


As we were putting together the LMP 2016 Gift Guide this year, we stumbled upon the BEST.GIFT.EVER….Inflatable snow tubes in your favorite childhood candies and more!


Sleds and snow tubes are usually soooo boring looking. Well not these you guys! Candy peppermint twist, a plaid mitten, a snow cone, the iconic donut that was trending in everyone’s pool last year…each one is better than the next.


Lucky for us, the creators of these awesome inflatables at Big Mouth got wind of their product on our gift guide and got in touch with us to partner up on a GIVEAWAY! We said….AWE YEAH!!


We got our hands on so many of these amazing snow tubes we set them up for a festive winter gathering!


Imagine…you have your friends over, you serve cake (preferably shaped like a touque baked by Making that Cake as a holiday gift to the LMP team this year), coffee (spike if you like), chocolate brittle and donuts and you go snow tubing! I mean c’mon…how fun does that sound?!







So guess what guys? Nows your chance to get your hands on one of these fabulous snow tubes to enjoy this winter!



Grab your touque, stir up that hot cocoa and enter now with our Rafflecopter below!

Winner will be announced on Friday December 30th at 12pm EST live on our Instagram feed. Winner will receive a Big Mouth snow tube of their choice (pending availability).

  21. Susan D

    Winter brings cozy clothes like sweaters and scarves, cocoa in front of fires, building snowmen and skiing… then hot soup and warm breads after a cold afternoon shoveling snow. I love winter. It’s so peaceful!

  22. Amy

    I’ve been loving getting some winter hiking it!! It’s so nice to not be sweating to death and the world just looks so beautiful sparkly and white!! Atleast here in Boise we get sunny days, even if the high doesn’t even but freezing!! I’d love to win one of these babies to take over to Bend next month when I go see my niece and nephew, they’d freak out about them!!

  23. Esther Aitchison

    I love when it snows so much school is cancelled no one goes to work and the whole family hangs out together. We go sledding and build snowmen and snow forts then come inside to get warm with hot chocolate. Then we play board games. Those are the best days in the winter.

  24. Kristin A

    My favorite part of winter is that it’s not hot! LOL except it was 81F here today in Orange County CA

Top Tips for A Rockin’ New Years Eve Party


I’ll never forget the year my sister was in town, we invited a few friends over and we fell asleep around 9:30. On New Years Eve! I swore I would NEVER let that happen again! If there’s ever a festive night to celebrate, that is it!


Let’s party this New Years Eve…here’s a fool proof plan for you all…

1. Little Miss Party in a Box: I think it’s safe to say you already know how clutch it is to have this in your possession for a party. Tableware + decor that is to die for and recyclable for easy clean up! (I mean really…who wants to clean up after New Years?!)



2. Prep your party in advance: We are giving away free notepads + pens in our party boxes right now and we want you to USE THEM! Here’s your check list:

Food:  Keep it simple. Set platters of meats, cheeses, tons of bread + crackers, olives, fruits, crudités and cupcakes. Late night at your party, plan to order pizza.




(Our ridiculously gorgeous food came from Poppy’s Catering)

Drinks: Plan for a self serve bar so you don’t get stuck mixing drinks all night! Serve one signature drink (holiday punch or cherry mimosas), beer and wine.




Make sure you have:  Sparkling water (for those who will want a glass of bubbly to toast but may not be drinking), toilet paper stocked in the bathroom and fill your freezer with some frozen pigs in a blanket (just in case!)


Balloons:  Take your balloons to your local party store and ask them to have them filled with helium and ready for delivery or pick up the morning of your party.


Music:  Make a long, fun playlist. Or find us on Spotify so you can tap into ours. Here’s our NYE 2016 playlist.

Morning of your party:
Chill the wine and beer either in your fridge or outside in the cold (says the East Coaster).
Set up all decor and tableware.
Set out props for photos.
Set the bar. Make sure to include a bottle opener, bucket + tongs for ice and a cute dishtowel for drippy bottles.
Clean the bathrooms.


Doll up.
Pre-mix your signature drink.


1 hour before the party:
Pump the tunes.
Light the candles.
Set up your platters of food out.
Set out all wine and beer on ice.


Now let’s Party!

DIY with LMP: Turn yourself into art confetti


Every now and then we work with clients who come to us with the most amazing ideas and ask for our help with executing. That’s what we were dealing with her when one of our most creative clients said she wanted to have an art themed birthday dinner.


There were so many incredible details that made up this dinner party but my absolute favorite was the art that we turned into confetti. Let me explain…

Our client asked us to design her face into some of her favorite artists masterpieces. Maggie worked her magic and turned our client into the Mona Lisa, Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe pop art and Cindy Sherman.


We purchased mini canvases at Michael’s Craft Store, a bottle of modge podge and brushes. We printed the artwork onto card stock, cut into the coordinating sizes of the canvases and then brushed the canvas with a thin layer of modge podge. We then placed the cut piece of card stock onto the canvas and continued to paint all over it with more modge podge ensuring the edges were covered with glue well.





Check.This.Out…..How fabulous are these?!


We decorated the dinner table with these all over…looking like personalized art confetti.

Little Miss Party Favors in a Box


My friend Pam recently had a birthday party. She booked a dinner reservation at one of the best Mexican restaurants in the city – La Esquina. I knew a fun evening was in store…

She told me that 8 people would be at dinner and I really really wanted to surprise her by doing something special that night….but what…hmmm.


I came up with the idea of doing a little favor gift box for each guest. I wnted to build these boxes with festive items that Pam would appreciate and know I put thought into. So I got to building…


We found the perfect size black boxes and pink ribbon to package these favors in. I wanted confetti of course, so included a mini party cracker in each that said HOORAY! The best part about these was everyone opened theirs at the table and read the joke and wore the crown.


Everyone loves coffee so we included a $5 gift card to Starbucks. And who doesn’t love gummy bears and champagne? Well thanks to Sugarfina we found adorable clear boxes of champagne gummy bears in each box!


Pam’s alcohol of choice is tequila so we put mini bottles of Patrone into each box. The perfect addition. And last but not least…an itty bitty cupcake from Baked by Melissa for something extra sweet.


What do you think? Pretty cute right?! The girls LOVED these and were blown away when they sat down to a gift placed at each of their seats.
