Party in Palm Springs

Recently we found the Little Miss Bachelorette Party at the most fabulous party in Palm Springs.

This bachelorette party was being hosted by the sister of the bride. She got her hands on our bachelorette party and set up the perfect party for gals to enjoy with snacks, champagne and a very special activity.

The Bachelorette Party box includes a blueprint booklet that walks you through the planning process and steps for prepping your party. Also included is a bridal party game about how well you know the bride.

I love how with the bachelorette party box you don’t have to think about the tableware and decor at all. We put together a beautiful, color collection that is so festive for this fun, wild celebration.

After the girls popped champagne and tossed the confetti…the surprise activity was to begin.

The girls hired the Artful Bachelorette. Our new obsession. Owner and girl boss, Fleur is an artist who started this incredible business where an artist comes to your space with a male model who poses nude for the girls to sketch.

EVERY time Artful Bachelorette puts on a party the girls go wild. They draw, giggle, drink, giggle more. It’s a hoot.

I mean…that tushie. Do I need to say more? What a GREAT idea for a bachelorette party! So much classier and cooler than a scary stripper!

We are so excited to be working with the Artful Bachelorette to offer the Bachelorette Party in a Box at a discounted rate when you book their service for your party. Contact us here for more information.

For the Host Gift Box

Though it’s freezing cold on the east coast, it’s officially spring. We cannot wait to break out our open toed shoes and put on a flow-y dress but until then we are making all our spring party plans!

What’s on tap for us? Easter and Passover. I host Passover dinner which always involves a great deal of cooking, setting the table and then cleaning it all up. When a guest recognizes this by showing up at the door with a hostess gift, it makes me feel extra special and really happy.

It’s not always easy coming up with a gift for the host though. Sure you can pick up a bottle of wine or flowers but doesn’t it feel good to put a little thought behind a gift like this?

We are now offering the Host Gift Box filled with the cutest items that any host will love! You can buy this box and when it arrives on your doorstep it’s ready to be gifted. OR you can send it direct to your host if you want him or her to receive it in advance of the event.

Inside the box we’ve included a small, gorgeous bottle of rosé, pretty paper straws that your host can stick directly into that bottle of rosé, festive napkins and dessert plates, party blowers and a stunning wine tote from Nashchic.

Did we not just make your life SO EASY? You’re welcome.

Shop the Box here and Have a hoppy Spring!

Flower Power

Today is about using fresh flowers to make pretty crowns just in time for spring…which is TODAY! Happy Spring everyone.

We recently brought a new team member on board, the most fantastic intern, Natalie who has been a great asset to our team. Her greatest skill in the LMP Office: flower arranging. Could she fit in any better?

She lead a flower crown making workshop for us and we of course turned it into a party. What a fun way to spend a morning with friends, huh?! We served a simple breakfast with fresh pastries, croissants and a enormous sweet brioche that we found at our local bakery. Abby brewed a pot of coffee and of course we toasted with pink bubbly.

If you plan to host a flower crown making party, ask your friends to dress for the season and no doubt they will pull out some pretty fabulous pops of color…

Here’s how you can make these flowers crowns with a few materials (easily found on Amazon) and a lotta flowers (if you live in warm climate then check your backyard first!).

Supplies:
Floral Wire
Floral tape
Good scissors
Leafy florals (ie. Italian ruscus, babies breath, spray roses)

1. Take your floral wire and fit it around your head so that you know how long it needs to be.

2. Shape the floral wire into a circle and then twist the end in order to keep it in place at the length you need. (For added security, make the length even longer and wrap the extra around the crown to make it thicker).

3. Take your floral tape and begin wrapping it around the entire crown (Make sure you are gently pulling the tape as your wrap, so that the tape becomes sticky).

4. Begin making small bouquets with your flowers and greenery. Then wrap the ends with the floral tape.

5. Take a long piece of greenery and twist it around the crown, then secure with floral tape.

6. Add in the small bouquets and secure with floral tape, add or subtract to your liking.

7. Take some pictures and have fun!

DIY Valentine’s Day Banner

Hello fellow craft-lovers! What a perfect way to celebrate your LOVE for crafts with this awesome DIY Valentine’s Day Banner. If you’re throwing a v-day party, this is the perfect activity to get all the guests involved with. Not only does it look super cute, it’s an awesome way to leave something fun behind for your Valentine’s Day Party hostess.

The best part? It’s SO easy. In fact, YOU don’t even have to do much work, other than to set up the Valentine-making station. After that, you leave it up to the party-goers to leave their own note for the hostess. Here’s what you’ll need:

string/ribbon for hanging the banner
paper for the Valentines
coloring utensils and stickers for decoration
scissors
pink tassels from the $1 section at Target (optional!)
clothes pins- plain or FUN, like our pink & red arrow pins from Target

Step 1: Hang your string on a plain wall. Add any extra decor pieces, like the tassels, to make it pop! Then set up your Valentine-making table with all your craft supplies.

Step 2: Get making! Create cute Valentines using the various craft supplies, making sure to sign the back so your hostess knows who made it!

Step 3: Hang your Valentines, and enjoy the outcome of your full banner!

Thanks for tuning in! Be sure to post pictures of your own Valentine’s Banner and tag #DIYwithLMP so we can see how it turned out!

Fifty Shades of Valentine’s Day

This post is in partnership with Universal Pictures’ new film Fifty Shades Darker.

So, now that it’s February, we ask you… what are you doing on Valentine’s Day?

All of us at LMP agree that our favorite things to do on Valentine’s Day is to sip on cocktails, eat some sweets, and go to the movies! Whether it’s with our hubbies or some girlfriends, movies are always a great way to enjoy the Holiday of L-O-V-E.

Universal Pictures asked us to come up with some fun ideas to celebrate Fifty Shades Darker, which is coming to theaters this Valentine’s Day so we invited a few girlfriends over and threw a masquerade-themed Galentine’s Day party.

We asked the gals to come decked in sexy outfits, we let the red wine flow and we served a menu of very sexy foods like prosciutto purses (melon on the inside, chives to tie), crostini with brie and pears with a balsamic drizzle and crostini spread with Neuchatel cream cheese and topped with pomegranate seeds.

We made for a festive setting with black balloons, silver confetti and tons of roses.  We hung a metallic silver backdrop from Decorative Novelty to use for photos.

We always love serving a signature drink and for this cocktail party Abby was serving up a romantic and bubbly libation.

Abby’s Sexy Sip:

Here’s what you need:
-prosecco
-St. Germaine
-fresh strawberries
-edible rose petals

Here’s what to do:
1) Rinse off and slice some fresh strawberries, about 10, removing the green stem and leaves. Place slices in a bowl, and using a muddler, mash them up.
2) In a pitcher, combine 1 bottle of prosecco, 2 oz. of St. Germaine, and your muddled strawberries.  Stir gently.
3) Top with edible rose petals, and serve!

For dessert, we thought it was appropriate (and ok, totally cliche) to serve chocolate covered strawberries.

With our table set and our drinks poured, we got to donning our masks, tossing some confetti, lighting sparklers, and partying.

We know. Now you want to throw a party just as fabulous…right?? Well guess what? We are giving away a Little Miss Valentine’s Day Party in a Box WITH a swag bag full of Fifty Shades Darker-themed goodies including a copy of the book!

You can enter to win by commenting on this post, telling us who you want to see Fifty Shades Darker with! Winner will be announced on Monday, February 6th.

Make plans to slip into something a shade darker this Valentine’s Day…  get your tickets to see Fifty Shades Darker here!
