This week I’m going to post about some of the things I use and love for parties. And then you get to choose your own giveaway prize.

Day 1: twine. I won a twine sampler pack a few weeks ago from The Twinery. I’m always using different ribbons and things for parties and presents so I was ecstatic to win 15 yards of each twine in all 8 colors: Maraschino, Mandarin, Lemondrop, Peapod, Caribbean, Lilac, Pink Sorbet & Cappuccino. I love this twine. It’s so soft and cottony. I can’t wait to show you the fun party stuff I’ve already been using it for. And Nicole at The Twinery is so sweet. She’s offering a 25% discount code to all of my readers: CHARMPARTY. It expires at midnight on July 18th. Go check out their recent launch on The Twinery Blog. They’re having a photo contest, offering free downloads, posting discount codes, etc.

Okay, what does this have to do with a giveaway for you? I’ve been wanting to do another giveaway for a while but I’m having a hard time choosing what to give away. So I thought we’d do a little experiment. I’m going to post some of my favorite party things this week. They are all eligible items for the giveaway.  If you win you can choose which item you’d like. You can enter on any of the posts this week. I’ll just collect all of the names and tally them at the end. But just one entry per person please. This giveaway will close at Midnight on Friday, July 16th and I’ll post the winner on Saturday or Monday. To enter, leave a comment on any post this week and a valid email address to contact you at when you win. And any kind comments about the giveaway items are always appreciated.

Day 1: you can choose a 240 yard roll or a sampler pack from The Twinery.


  1. I am a fellow twine lover! Mostly use it for wrapping up pretty packages. I’ll be sure to check out The Twinery because it looks like they have colors I *need* to have!

I am addicted to ribbon…I cringe when someone throws away good ribbon, I often dig it out of the garbage and take it with me! My baby just turned one, and I tied good chunky ribbon to his 36″ balloons…which he grabbed with his “cakey” hands…that ribbon is in my washer right now!:)
