Harlow Turned 2 with an LMP in a Box

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!

Pretty Paper Plates

Who ever said you can’t use paper to set the table? I DID, once upon a time. A dinner party should be classy, elegant and sophisticated. BUT guess what? Recently, paper goods have stepped it up a notch…and now I’m singin’ a different tune!
There are so many stores that now carry a wide variety of paper party goods in the most beautiful patterns. So we gathered our favorites from Target and Meri Meri to put together a pretty fabulous tablescape.
Now want to know the best part? Clean up is a cinch!
With the holidays approaching we thought this would be such a nice and economical way to host your friends over for a “Friends-giving” dinner.
We did mix in some real glassware and cutlery wrapped in cloth napkins with a piece of wheat to make it festive.
We love adding in little trinkets and details to make our guests swoon over their place setting. We found mini party hats by Oh Joy! for Target, Mini confetti poppers and antler stir sticks which will make any drink look super cute.
Keeping it simple and chic with decorative paper and plastic is just one way to make the holidays stress-free.

Superhero Crafting with Kiwi Crate

Crafting with Luke
These days I’m looking for pretty much any cool way to entertain my kid who is totally into (in no particular order): Ninjago, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and superheroes.  You may have read about how we recently threw a superhero themed birthday party for Gavin & his friend Mike…
Well at the party we sent all of the kids off with a favor from Kiwi Crate. They each got a kit to make their own superhero masks and cuffs at home. How cute?!
I was pretty psyched to rip this one open…
Until I looked at my calendar. How the hell do me and this kid have schedules that are so stinkin’ full? So I had to ask Erin to take this one on with Lil Luke…
Well boy did he LOVE it! Filling his mask up with stickers, testing out the cuffs, eating the elastic…I mean you know. This is how we craft.

A brilliant party favor. And they offer so many different crafts and activities. AND…you can give monthly subscriptions. Makes for such a great birthday or holiday gift. I would have to think as a kid I’d be pretty excited to receive a new craft project in the mail every month…??!!

Kiwi Crate was so kind to send us these favor crafts to sample. All thoughts and taste tests were our own.

Turning 40 on Halloween…does it get more fun?! Dressing up, drinking champagne and dancing on the tables…that’s just how it should be done.
Rick’s wife Emily called us for some help with decorating the private event space at Lafayette for a 40th birthday celebration on Halloween. Everyone is getting dressed up she told us. She also told us that Rick is often told he looks like George Clooney…

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.
