Mandy’s Meals & More

Shower box on brit and co


Ok, so you’re throwing a birthday brunch and you need something quick, easy and super impressive for the guests.
This crispy, salty and creamy delight is so easy to make you’ll have extra time to sip on your mimosa and put your feet up before the madness begins.
You know what would pair perfectly with these bites? Little Miss Party in a Box!
Everything you could possibly need in a box, say whaaaa?!



Here is how I made these cucumber nibbles:

Mini English Cucumbers
Philadelphia Whipped Chive Cream Cheese
Smoked Salmon

Simply cut the cucumber into bite size rounds, pipe cream cheese onto each cucumber piece.
Roll up a small strip of smoked salmon and top with a sprig of dill

Easy peasy and delish!



*The white porcelain appetizer spoons are Mandy’s. She bought these at Crate and Barrel for $0.95 a pop. Pick up a dozen for an unexpected look when serving these cucumber rounds OR you can put them on our bamboo spoons included in the box…


You can now find our Party in a Box sold on Brit & Co. We LOVE their shop….LOVE it! Check it out and when you Shop the Box you will receive free shipping on orders over $75!

A Backyard Baby Shower


This summer I had the pleasure of throwing my sister a baby shower. I made sure that this baby shower…was different form all the other baby showers I’ve ever been to in the past…


For starters, I asked my Aunt Debi if we could co-host the shower in her backyard. She’s got a perfectly flat piece of lawn and I have always dreamed of throwing a party back there with a big white tent…



When she agreed, I got to work on the game plan. I wanted this shower to be laid back, have no games and be on an evening during the work week so we weren’t taking anyone away from their weekends.


I chose a Thursday evening for the party and planned a family style menu with a rustic feel. The guests were invited to dine outside, under the stars with delicious food and cocktails.



The other detail I threw into the mix was a play on my sister’s married last name. Her husband is a Dick. Jason Dick. So she was giving birth to…baby Dick. There was no shortage of laughs here starting with the gorgeous invites that I found on Minted and baby Dick references made throughout the night.




We ended the night on a sweet note, as we always do, serving mini cupcakes and donuts in an ombre of pinks.


The night went exactly as planned. Most importantly, Mandy was over the moon with joy to celebrate the birth of her first babe with dear friends and family.

We owe a great big thank you to all of those incredible vendors who helped to pull this all together for us…

Last Minute Halloween Crafts & Cocktails


So Halloween is a only a couple of days away…do you have your plan for Saturday?  What are you doing with the kids before you go trick or treating? We have some awesome ideas for you! And don’t worry…we’ve got plenty of fun for the adults as well…


For the kids – let’s craft. We took small pumpkins and sprayed them with chalkboard paint (Found at our local craft store – we love Michael’s!) and set out chalk for the kids to color them with.


Note:  If you’re having a party for the adults – you can use these chalkboard pumpkins as food or place cards – write the name of your guests or dishes that you’re serving!

We also set out tons of stickers, pom poms, glue and markers along side brown paper bags. The kids got to design their own treat bags with these!



Of course it’s fun to set out props. We found really cool gold masks which the kids immediately put on to make crafting more festive.


How about a game? You know how bobbing for apples used to be all the rage? Well check this out…bobbing for cider donuts! We put a mask on each kid – and tied the donuts to a witch’s broom…the first one to finish their donuts wins!



To eat and drink we served snacks that were fun. Popcorn in a plastic cauldron (found this at Party City for $3.99!) and cider out of apples that we carved and hollowed into cups!



For the big kids….we served mini bottles of champagne in a carved and hollowed out pumpkin and added wedges of orange playing off of the classic mimosa cocktail. We also served cider sangria garnished with cinnamon sticks.




Happy Halloween! Hope you have a safe and fabulous weekend!

This is Ten


We recently styled a tenth birthday party at the Core Club for a movie screening. What a fun age 10 is to turn…double digits! And this movie themed birthday party was so perfect for this sweet little girl and her friends…


The kids were going to be spending the majority of this party in the screening room watching the movie 13 going on 30. So we wanted to keep the set up simple. For starters, we had a rockin’ popcorn bar with movie theater candy wrapped in custom belly bands that we made and tied around each.




We served plain and cheddar popcorn out of large buckets in striped boxes and set out shakers with flavors to top.



We built a tower of plastic champagne coupes decked in bowtie ribbons for the kids to enjoy sparkling juice in style.



Then there was our dessert bar. My favorite thing here are the ceramic popcorn bowls that we found and filled with fresh flowers. We clustered balloons as the centerpiece and served the sweets on red, black and white platters. Mwah! Love this…





We had a great assortment of sweet eats from some of our favorites in NYC…chocolate dipped pretzels by Fatty Sundays, Mini donuts by Doughnuttery and cones of berries.



When the kids arrived we had set up a custom backdrop that we had made with Minted and invited the “Paparazzi” Dave Robbins to shoot the kids dressed up in props like neon hats and boas….boy did they ever love this!




And to send everyone home with a little gift we made favor bags with marquee letters for each child’s initial and a picture frame for their shot from the “Paparazzi”.



Happy Birthday Sweet Julianne! We wish you many more to come.

Best of birthday parties

The Little Miss Party journey began over 4 years ago. We’ve been involved in all types of events, but none more than birthday celebrations. And boy have we thrown some cool ones over the years!

Here are a few tips on how to get that picture perfect event.


1. Create a focal point. You don’t have to decorate your entire apartment, house or venue…try focusing your attention on one or two spots like a food or dessert table. Then you can simply add color around the room with flowers or even balloons.


2. Create symmetry. For almost every food or dessert table we create, we make sure what’s going on one side of the table is matched on the other. It doesn’t have to be exact, but things will look cleaner if they’re balanced.



3. Create symmetry. For almost every food or dessert table we create, we make sure what’s going on one side of the table is matched on the other. It doesn’t have to be exact, but things will look cleaner if they’re balanced.


4. Personalization. Small details are what sets your party apart from others. We love to personalize everything from napkins, cups, water bottle labels and signage.


5. Color. Pick a color palette and stick to it. 3-4 colors is enough for a bold statement. The goal is to use party supplies that will create a cohesive look.
