Tawnya G! Congratulations, Tawnya, you were the 16th person to like Pinwhirls on Facebook and won a $50 gift certificate from them. I can't wait to see what you do with all those beautiful pinwheels at your next party.
I met Natalie Gowen at Bloggy Bootcamp Denver. She is an a marketing expert who focusing on helping Etsy shop owners increase sales and visibility.
I asked Natalie if she would do a few guest posts directed at our Etsy shop owners on how to get your listings on the front page of Etsy. Here's what she had to say...
How about making a Halloween chandelier to decorate your house this year? This DIY was created by Mandy from Little Birdie Secrets. I love the drama this would add!
My friend Ana from Love Party Printables, has designed another adorable set of FREE Halloween party printables for us! I'm calling this our "Boo" collection and how sweet are these little trick-or-treaters?!
The collection includes: invitations, party circles, drink flags, tented cards, a "Happy Halloween" banner, party labels, napkin rings, water bottle labels, party labels, and favor tags. There is everything you'll need to throw a fab-boo-lous (I couldn't help myself) party.
We've put together a Halloween Product Guide of all the handmade Halloween party supplies created by our vendors. Just click on the photo of the item you like and you can purchase it right there. Simple, right? That's the point. :)
I'm excited to be able to offer this $50 gift certificate giveaway from Pinwhirls because they make such beautiful stuff.
Pinwhirls sells all types and sizes of gorgeous pinwheels, plus DIY pinwheel supplies, personalized party hats, banners, pennants, tags, labels, cupcake wrappers, invites, and more. And with over 1,000 exclusive papers available, they can turn any idea into something beautiful!
Tell me these aren't the cutest Halloween mummies!
These were created by Kim at Craftaphile and I just love them. I'm planning to make some with my daughter to decorate our house. All you need are some Styrofoam balls, muslin, eyelets/brads, tea, floral wire, and glue. That's it.
If you see my blog posts or read my Facebook and Twitter posts, you know I'm a huge fan of creative cakes. I think if you're going to splurge on one item for your party in terms of money or time, a cake is a great way to go.
I've noticed some new cake trends (in addition to all the beautiful rainbow cakes and ruffle cakes) on our main site that I wanted to share. Take a look (and click on the photo to see what party it's from)...
