One year ago today, I wrote my very first blog post! I shared a baseball theme baby shower my SIL and I hosted for a good friend – and that baby will be celebrating his first birthday is just a few weeks! It’s been such a fantastic year filled with so many wonderful surprises along the way – from my dad being my very first subscriber (even before Mr. Lemon!) to having my parties featured on much larger party blogs that I follow and adore!
For a quick trip down that memory lane, I want to thank Love the Day for being the first to feature any of my parties – the Olivia the Pig party continues to be my most viewed post! And I was shocked that Hostess with the Mostess not only featured my Hot Chocolate bar but also choose my Woodland Fairy Surprise birthday party in their Party of Five Friday! When Courtney from Pizzazzerie said she wanted to feature my own Mad Men Birthday Party, I think I may have shrieked a little…or a lot :)
And although being featured on other blogs is super exciting and leaves me with a huge grin on my face for a few days, I have the most fun planning events. I’ve felt so blessed to have people invite me into their lives and help make their celebrations even more special.
Okay, enough gushing! This blogiversary most definitely wouldn’t have happened without all of YOU – I’m so appreciative for my blog readers who continue to check this little corner of the web for ideas on throwing parties! And because of that, for my blogiversary celebration, I want to have my very first giveaway! One lucky reader will be sent a little spring party pack featuring (quite coincidentally) the color of the year – tangerine! The giveaway includes cupcake wrappers and matching coasters from the ubiquitous Martha Stewart (I’ve been coveting these for a long time and I didn’t even buy a set to keep!), a set of four cloth napkins from Target, Maybelline lipgloss, and Lemon Drop candies (I just couldn’t resist! hahaha).
