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.
A few weeks back we told you about the adorable couple that we got a call from…to plan their surprise wedding. That’s right…Rachel & Dustin got engaged…and wanted to get married in 3 months…but don’t tell anyone.
We seriously could not have had more fun planning this if we tried. First off – Rachel gave us the best summer palette EVER to work with: kelly green, tangerine orange, shades of grey, fuchsia and we threw in some red. ah.mazing.
This bridal bouquet was by Annie at Sag Harbor Florist…we love working with her!
We wanted the decor to be bright, fun, spontaneous…just like this event. We LOVE using bold colors and with the light in this incredible venue, Rayuela, Raquel got the most beautiful shots!
As always we personalized the decor around the venue for our soon to be married couple with tons of pictures in colorful frames. They gave us some great pictures of the two of them to work with…and some even included shots from their engagement shoot…
We designed menus for the bars around the venue since we got to offer a few fabulous signature drinks and put them in frames that we had spray painted gold.
After getting to know Rachel & Dustin while planning this event we knew that they were a couple who would appreciate all of the attention to detail that we put into our events…so we continued onward with more! There is a fad going on with paper straws and we’re all over it. For so many of our parties we use the stripe-y straws to spice things up but for Rachel & Dustin we saw “branchy” straws instead. Rustic, understated, chic…just like this affair. And we added R(heart)D flags to the straws that we placed on the bar on the main floor…and flags that said surprise! to the bar upstairs where drinks were served following the secret nuptials…
This venue could not have set up more perfectly for the big surprise. The guests gathered on the main floor and were later ushered upstairs where the surprise ceremony was going to take place…
We gave busy a new meaning this summer.
Babies, parties, weddings, kids, entertaining…
We have so many gorgeous and fabulous events to share with you…and are working on doing just that. So to start…I’m going to give you some insight on my Rosh Hashana.
Every year we celebrate the Jewish New Year by enjoying some apples dipped in honey. This signifies a sweet year ahead. And this year I was hosting 10 adults, 2 kids and 2 babies for the traditional dinner to kick off our new year.
My lil man helped me set the table for the kids using mini apples as place card holders for the table assignments. Growing up my Boobie (grandmother) would always use doilies to set the table with. So we found these large sized doily placemats at Party City to set the kids plates under along with some crayons to color if they got antsy while waiting for dinner to be served.
My lil guy also added a homemade cup of flowers to the table…always a nice touch for the kids to be able to contribute!
And for the babes, I secured our Phil & Ted’s chairs to our dining room table, set a doily placemat at each along with sippy cups and kids cutlery and they were ready to hang…literally. Eating gefilte fish and all!
I worked with a bold palette of grape and forest green mixed with white and black all over. I set the adults table with succulents placed on top of wine glasses turned upside down and these gorgeous purple ball flowers that I found in the market…
A simple runner from Ikea made the white pop off the table with solid berry colored napkins that I found on the Party City website in their solid color section which I find so easy to navigate!
I used mini jars of honey with personalized labels for the seating cards…which doubled as a favor for my guests to take home.
Dinner was going to be a menu taken from my Boobie’s kitchen – she is known for most of these dishes and serves them to us whenever we go to Toronto.
Chopped liver, new dill pickles and crackers to nosh
Gefilte fish and a round challah (which as my mom in law told me signifies the circle of life)
Chicken soup with mazto balls
Aunt Sandy’s Peach brisket
Chicken burgers (which I totally dried out and ruined. So what do you want from me? I’m not perfect!)
And green bean casserole
And the best part of course was being able to get together with our family and friends. There’s nothing better.
So to all of you who celebrate – L’Shana Tova and we wish you an easy fast this upcoming weekend from all of us here at LMP.
