The first picture was shot with an ISO 100 in the Aperture Priority mode of my LX5, with a 1/60 shutter speed, and the second was the same, but with ISO 80. I don't know why the second photo is so blurry; it looks fine from a distance but when zoomed in all the detail is lost. I shot them in RAW format and edited the second one a little bit in photoshop, made it more vibrant, etc. Still, though, I know I'm doing a lot of things wrong, I just don't know what.

I'm not familiar with the camera, so I can't speak as to why -- but these photos are out of focus, which is why they are blurry.

Could be some camera movement/motion blur involved as well. ISO 100 is probably way to low for the available light.

Oh, snap, I know there's way for my camera to tell me whether they're in focus or not but I can't seem to figure it out. :/ Thanks though!

Would adjusting the shutter speed help with the blur? And what ISO would be good for lighting such as that?

??? Hard to say without being there. Yes, a faster shutter helps with blur. They might just be out of focus.

Are you too close without the 'macro' turned on? Looks like camera shake in the second picture.
