Our Snowflake Design Challenge So Far -- Take a look!

We currently have over a hundred wonderful entries in our Snowflake Design Challenge. Take a look at the entries so far.


If you are not an Etsy vendor, you can still enter. Just email me photos of your snowflake themed products (at jillian(at)catchmyparty(dot)com) and I'll add them to the group! This challenge is open to anyone who designs party-related products. If you are an Etsy vendor, make sure to tag your items “CMPsnowflake.”

The challenge ends at midnight (PST) November 30th.  And please remember, by entering and designing items that incorporate the theme, not only will you get a chance to show off your handmade “snowflake” holiday goods on our site, but you could also win an HP Officejet 7500A Printer.

Good luck!! I can't wait to see what you come up with. Your time starts now!!! I've just always wanted to say that. :)

Take a look at our new Valentine's Day party page layout for all your upcoming Valentine's Day parties. Hope you like it!

"Browse Themes" Button Added to our Nav Bar - Now You Can Find Party Themes More Easily

A few months back we created a party inspirations and themes page, a list of all the party themes we have on our main site.  Now we've made it even easier to find that page by adding a "browse themes" button in our nav bar that leads you right to it. Take a look...

To see all the inspirations and themes on our main site (not just in those five categories), scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page.

We will also be making tweaks to this page to make it easier to use, so if you have any ideas on how to improve it, please let me know at

New Dessert Table Category in the Photo Showcase

We've just added "dessert table" to the showcase section on everyone's party page. When you're adding a new party (or editing an old one), please drag a photo of your gorgeous dessert table into the "dessert table" box.

This way it's easier for me to show off all your lovely dessert tables in my blog, and for people to browse through them in the "browse photos" section of the site.

Also, please let me know what you think and if there are any other categories we should be adding.

Our New Christmas Party Page Layout!
