Announcement: Vendor Challenge

I’m so excited about this idea!  Inspired by Brenda of Brenda’s Wedding Blog, and her monthly vendor challenge, I have decided to host my own!  This is not a contest (sorry no prizes) but a great way to showcase your talents and work together in creating a beautiful and inspiring party design.  Read the details below…
Here’s how it will work:
  • I will choose a theme and/or color scheme that you will use in your design.
  • You will need to create a budget-friendly dessert/food table + a seated table for 2-6 guests
  • You can work with a team of 2-5 vendors (please, no more than 5 members).  Typically a team may consist of party planner/stylist, paper designer, sweets vendor, and photographer or other specialty vendor as necessary.
  • We want to see your specialty whether it’s kids parties, baby showers, bridal showers, weddings, themed dinner parties, etc
  • The designs will be debuted on my site and then you are free to publish them also.
  • Please note, we are looking for creativity, quality photos, and originality to inspire others.
  • I will need enough photos to show overall tables + detail shots.
  • Please send photos sized 800 px wide or tall – NO WATERMARKS PLEASE.
Please email me if you would like to participate.  Looking forward to hearing from you!
