Let’s Flamingle

Flamingos. How chic are Flamingos? Every time I visit Palm Springs I always make a special pitstop at the JW Marriott Hotel just to say hello to their…flamingos. What a beautiful bird that is!

Since I live on the east coast where there are NO signs of real flamingos, I settle for the plastic version. Cute and perfect for a party.

Invite a few friends over, set up your flamingos, open some rosé and FLAMINGLE!

I seem to have tons of tissue fans in my closet so I thought it would be fun to create a backdrop with white + black fans taped to the wall and I added in these amazing bamboo leaf paper plates. GAH. I love.

A flamingo party means let loose and have fun. We broke out my favorite Shop Bando Party straw that Abby gifted me and sip sipped away.

Once the party is over? I put those flamingos right into my yard + garden you know why? They keep the deer away!  I swear. It works.

Happy Flamingling!

xx, Seri

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.

LMP Travels: Coachella and more in Palm Springs

This past week was Spring Break for my kiddos. Since I have my own biz and can party, I mean work, from anywhere, I use my kid’s time off as an excuse to travel. One may say I have somewhat of a travel addiction…

This time around, we hit California. I spent 3 days in LA with the boys which I’m going to write about another time. I have a lot to tell you about LA…but for now…let’s talk about the time we spent in Palm Springs. AKA: Heaven.  No but seriously, snobby heaven.

So here’s the story. People often ask me how I travel so much with the kids. With and without them. Couple things…

1. My kids got frequent flyer mile cards the day they were born. They were born to fly. I’m from Toronto so I travel with them very often to spend time with my family.

2. My kids love to travel so they make it easy. We have a system as I travel with them on my own often so often while my husband is working…to pay for all our travel. What a guy. (LUCKY for us he planned a work trip around our trip to California and met us there for 3 days! He got to RELAX and golf with Gavin! Was so awesome for us and him.)

*If you ever want my perfect plane packing list for kids please leave a comment.  I’ll write one if enough of you request it.

3. I always have help when I’m traveling without the kids and they are back at home.  I have some of the most amazing sitters who have all become part of our family.

Sometimes when I travel with the kids if the situation permits it then I bring one of them along to help. Here’s a photo of Ali, who joined us on this trip to LA & Palm Springs.

(PS – we’re posing with our MZ Wallace bags that they gave us after a recent “BFF” photo shoot. You’ll see more on that soon…)

So there’s Ali. I met Ali when Gavin turned one and I was looking for a part time babysitter. Ali was the 12th person I interviewed in a week just when I was feeling like I could give up on the whole process. Instead, we fell in love. I  still have the heart that I made on her resume in my files.

Ok so long story short – Ali’s been in our life for awhile. She ended up working for Little Miss Party for years and then she flew the coupe to the music world where she belongs.

Ali worked from her LA office and arranged for her friend to watch the boys at night for us so we could get out on the town. And that we did. But the ultimate plan was to make our way over to Coachella together, hitting a few parties along the way.

In order to go to Coachella and truly enjoy it…I needed some help on that front. You see…I’m a very lucky gal. I have some of the best family members in the world. I mean truly. You know those people? Who are just really good people? Well that’s my cousin, Bailey. There’s not many people I trust as much as I trust her. She’s just that good. I love her.

Anyway, BAILEY joined us in Palm Springs. And guess what? We stayed at the best hotel for kids on the planet…the Marriott Shadow Ridge Enclave. Rooms priced well AND they were HUGE! We had a massive 2 bedroom with a full kitchen, pull out couch, king bed, double beds, 2 bathrooms and a walk out patio onto the water view of the golf course. Oh and with the mountains behind them. Could you die from that view?

We woke up every morning and fed the turtles and the ducks. Hello!

For the kids….get yourselves ready….they had: swimming pools with water slides, splash pads, mini golf outside our room, basketball courts, bars and food at every pool, “dive-in” movies every evening by the pool.  I mean…C’MON dude!  Amazing.  Kids lost their marbles.  I could go on and on about this hotel…but I think you get the idea.

So the boys + Bailey hit the pool while Ali and I went off…to Coachella.

There were parties…and more parties. Cocktails and stunning people. Everywhere. I don’t mean me and Ali…I mean really stunning, drop dead gorgeous people. We just didn’t take pictures of them. But trust me they were everywhere.

When we walked into this party that was hosted by Funboy x Smashbox, we pretty much almost fainted. Like what is this fantasy world that they call Palm Springs, huh?!

They were serving rosé in lip floaties. I mean…stop.

Every party included a taco cart with fresh chicken, tofu and shrimp tacos. Ok. That will do alongside the basil + lemon cocktails.

Now let’s try that photo again and talk about Ali’s Chrome nails and her Coachella ringlet from Ramblerose. I mean, oh god.

Then came Coachella. Oh Coachella. What a special place, if ya like that sorta thing.

Music, wine, incredible food, breathtaking scenery. Ya. It’s pretty damn cool. I’ve been going to this music festival for years. I used to meet my best friend from Toronto there every April. Then we got pregnant and had kids so had to take a break. Now I’m BACK BABY!

For our last night in Palm Springs I told Ali I was going to get us a room at a hotel I’d been dreaming at staying at for many many months. The Saguaro Hotel. I had seen it on all the cool West Coast Instagram accounts and I have literally been having dreams of visiting this place.

Well you guys. It was dreamy all right. WOW! Everything was crazy colorful, bright, happy and fun. And…the rooms were huge. I was shocked!

WARNING:  I’m about to show you a LOT of pictures. Sorry. I can’t hold back. You’ve been warned.

 

They had parties going on all weekend at this hotel, so we joined in for the brunch and cocktails shindig when we got there. They had people set up everywhere. Nyx did our make up and Get Glammed did our hair. It was too amazing.

So all done up, off we went to another party. This one, was hosted by American Express Platinum. More…gorgeous people. In the most gorgeous hotel. With the most fascinating art like this gold palm tree —-

I.need.it.

And how ballsy is this?

i.love.it @ The Parker Palm Springs Hotel

I tried to document this whole trip on my Instagram story. I normally film all my stories on Snapchat and share on both channels but on this trip I had a revelation. That is…I spend too much time on my phone. So I chose one outlet and that was Instagram. Now that I’m home many of you have reached out to ask WHERE DID YOU GO ON SNAPCHAT? omg you guys!  I’m SORRY!  I didn’t mean to ditch you!  I will get back on there. In the meantime, you need to get caught up! I posted Day 1 and 2 from Coachella on the LMP YouTube channel for you to see here:
Coachella Day 1
Coachella Day 2 (my service was SO bad so when we were watching Lady Gaga I tried to post more but nothing went through!  UGH!  I filmed Katy Perry walk right by us and watch the concert standing right across from me! With Wiz Khalifa! omg.  At least I’m here to tell you about it.

Coachella Day 3 – I forgot to save that story!  KICKING MYSELF!  The highlight from that night was Hans Zimmer with Pharrell guest preforming! And Lorde sang that night, she was UNREAL.

This may have been my longest blog post to date.  If you’re still with me here, you deserve a medal. Hope you enjoyed my adventures in Palm Springs! Next up…LA. Stay tuned and in the meantime…Stay Wild. I need that sign.

xx, Seri
