When your kid turns one it’s the best excuse to gather all of your friends and family to…ROCK OUT! That’s what my hubby and I did when our little Gavin turned one. We invited everyone to come dressed up and let loose for a party of good food & tunes.
So when our client Juliette called us to throw a “rockin” brunch for her son Mickey’s first birthday, we couldn’t wait!
We built a bagel bar for this gang of brunchin’ rockers. We set up bowls of tuna, egg, cream cheese & lox, tomatoes & onions. Add a pasta salad and a bowl of fruit and there you have it. Something for everybody! One of our favorite details on the table was the cassette tapes that we used for the food place cards since Juliette told us they love the 80′s…
We set up a bar fitting for a late morning…into football Sunday. The coffee was flowing all day long in paper cups that we stuck with mustache stickers.
As always we designed personalized water bottles for the kids and adults that read: Mickey’s First Year Rocked.
And what’s a brunch without a good mimosa? We poured mimosas for the guests to grab and mingle with in black champagne flutes which we set on top of record player cake stands that we made especially for Mickey’s party.
In place of a cake we did a cupcake guitar. Our girl AnnMarie came onsite to put this together for us and boy it was it cute.
To keep the kids busy we set up a basket full of props to dress up with. All items were from Party City and made for great photos and good fun! Blow up guitars, wigs, Kiss masks…the kids (and adults!) had a ball.
And to see the kids off we packaged personalized coloring books from Frecklebox with crayons and hangtags thanking the guests for coming, from Mickey.
The party was pretty awesome, a good time was had by all and we hope to work with this super cool bunch again one day soon! Happy First Mickey! Keep on rockin’ you lil star!
A bit overdue here…but we’ve finally had a chance to go through all of the pictures and give you a recap on one of the most special events LMP had the honor of working on this past summer of 2013.
Klaus & Waseem found us through our citation in NY Magazine. We are listed as pre + post wedding planners but they over looked this when making the call to hire us as the coordinators of their wedding weekend…and so did we. We couldn’t help but fall in love with these two guys who decided to make their relationship official and wanted our help in doing so.
It all went down in Sag Harbor where they have shared a vacation home for the past 7 years. The weekend kicked off with a welcome dinner at their hideaway overlooking the most picturesque pond. The following night they tied the knot at B.Smith’s Restaurant overlooking the marina on the most beautiful day of the year with the ones closest to them by their side.
Klaus & Waseem met back in college and had been together for 25 years. They did not want an extravagant wedding but instead a focus on their “global family”. The most important part of the planning process was to take care of their guests who would be traveling from near and far to celebrate their nuptials. Their decision to wed could not have been made at a more perfect time in our society. With the Supreme court ruling just weeks before their big day it gave them all the more reason to rejoice.
Klaus & Waseem created a website for their exciting weekend through which they sent the invitation for their wedding and provided a detailed itinerary with what to do, see, wear, etc. for their guests to come prepared. They chose sky fall blue as a color to set the tone for their wedding to which we played off of when styling B.Smith’s. We worked with Annie from Sag Harbor Florist who couldn’t have been sweeter or more helpful. To the palette we added yellow, burnt orange and poppy red. These colors were all very meaningful to the guys being from Denmark and Bangladesh. Sunflowers are the ideal flower for September and worked beautifully with the palette that we put together. Annie brought in large white planters filled with sky-high sunflowers to flank the stage where Klaus and Waseem wed. The clear sky above them was the perfect compliment and so fitting as they chose this exact blue as their main color for this special celebration.
I think you’re starting to catch on here…
We’re going bananas with Little Miss Party in a box! We’re getting tons of positive feed back and we couldn’t be more excited!
We have most recently partnered up with the adorable Mom Blogger, Brianne from Stroller in the City to give away a Little Miss Party in a box for New Years Eve. It’s a good one! You won’t want to miss out on your chance to win.
Here’s what we’ve got goin’ on inside….
The theme of the cocktail party to ring in 2014 revolves around glitter. #yougotglittered. With the two glitter vases we’ll be sending you we suggest buying a festive bunch of flowers, adding water and throwing them in. We’ll show you exactly how to make your own floral arrangements on our DIY post here.
We will send you personalized water bottle labels which are a no brainer. It’s a simple way to dress up a plain ol’ water bottle and make it more fun for your party. Just buy a case of water, rip the labels off and stick on ours.
Of course then there’s the essentials. Plates, napkins, party beads…c’mon. We’ll send it all thanks to our friends who we LOVE at Party City! They have an endless selection of everything you could ever need to host a party at home.
You should be a guest at your own party…so you can enjoy it too! We’re here to help with your party needs…and make sure it’s chic and cool.

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Hanukkah or Thanksgivukkah for those who celebrate both!
We ate tons of turkey & latkes, spent quality time with our family and had football on the TV all weekend long! We also have been very busy over here in our LMP workshop and couldn’t wait to share with you. So for our post holiday blog today we’re going to tell you all about what we’ve been up to…
For starters, we have been working on developing a concept for a “party in a box” better known to us now as Little Miss Party in a Box. Since we are a local NYC event planning & design business, we have been trying to come up with a way to service clients who have been reaching out to us all over the country.
Here at Little Miss Party we live for and love the little details that go into our parties. Whether it be personalized water bottles, name and/or food cards, flags on straws, decorated vases…you name it. The list goes on. We put all of our heart into being creative so each of our parties look fresh and unique making them extra special for all of our clients. So what does this have to do with Little Miss Party in a Box? We are basically taking all of the decor elements from our parties and packaging them up for you so all you have to do is open your box, set everything up and add some food + drinks.
Our first example is the box we sent out for Thanksgivukka to one lucky winner who entered our giveaway a couple weeks ago. This special package included items to set up a dinner table for four people with placemats and some other very festive items…
Our second ever Little Miss Party in a Box was for a special lil man named Drew. Drew lives in Florida and his mom just gave birth to another little boy. Drew’s first birthday is in a couple of weeks and his Mom knew she wouldn’t have time to pull off a party without some help so she got in touch and requested a personalized package of supplies. Drew’s Lil Man 1st birthday party box included:
* Mustache props for fun picture taking
* glass bottles of M&M’s wrapped in mustache tape
* Mustache cups
* Red cups with Etch your name stickers
* Personalized Cupcake toppers
* Personalized stickers for loot bags
* A personalized door sign
* Happy Birthday Bunting
* And all of the essentials from Party City including over sized and regular size balloons, curling ribbon, plates, napkins, cutlery and table covers.
We were pretty psyched with the turn out of this box…But it wasn’t until we received word from Drew that we were ready to celebrate the success of our first shipment…here is the lil man himself IN THE LMP BOX!
And his mom was elated. We were so thankful for her excitement over the goodies as well as her kind words and feedback!
“Got the party box! Everything looks great!! Even love the mustache duck tape!! Now I just need food and smash cake! Can’t wait for the party!
Drew says thank you and he loves “the box” haha!”

It’s hard to believe that another year has flown by and my lil big man is turning 4.
I asked him what he wanted to do for his birthday this year. He responded with “multi sports”. I thought…hmm…you’re such a boy. I also thought…Chelsea Piers is the way to go! And it sure was. They take care of the kids, pizza and drinks. I could have let them do it all but c’mon…of course I had to add in some of the LMP touches…it’s my son’s birthday after all!
Gavin played a huge roll in the party planning here. He chose a Cars theme, requested personalized pinnies and wanted the room decorated with colors blue and yellow. Not only did he design the party…but he also helped to set it up. A party planner in the making, no doubt.
I think by far the best idea this lil guy came up with was the personalized pinnies. We had worked with a client last year who ordered these for an event at Chelsea Piers and they were a huge hit…so I knew we couldn’t go wrong.
Ali placed the order with Custom Ink. Their site was super easy to use and the quality of the shirts were awesome. The kids were so psyched with these shirts that had their names on the back!
To tie in the Cars theme we got some awesome plates, napkins and cups from Party City. And we put a personalized water bottle at each of the kids settings so they could hydrate after their running around like lil monkeys…
The kids later rocked it on the b-ball court…
And the babes joined in wearing sweatbands from American Apparel…
Then this happened…could they be cuter? Don’t think so.
After the sports party fun we all gathered back in the spacious party room for pizza, drinks and the most fabulous and delicious cake that I’ve served to date! Empire Cakes was behind this here…a Car themed cake made up of vanilla and dulce de leche layers. Holy YUM! It was a huge cake…that I expected to have tons leftover to nosh on later that night with a large glass of milk at home…but no dice. It was almost gone within seconds! So so good.
The party was relaxed, fun and EASY! A dream come true for a busy mom slash party planner who didn’t mind kinda taking a step back…for once. It was so nice to be able to celebrate with my little angel.
Happy birthday lil buddy…we love you so much.
