Party Starters 1ST BIRTHDAY BASH!! Day 1

Thank you all so much for stopping by today to help me celebrate Party Starters 1st birthday! We have a fun week in store for all of you with inspiring photos, party information, guest bloggers, new products and of course PRIZES! Today I will be sharing with you my PS Party Crew and a chance to win prize number one!

In addition to all of these fabulous treats, I am offering up an extra little goodie starting today which runs until this Friday, July 9th at 11:59 PM. Spend $40 or more in my store and you will receive a *FREE "Name Banner". Even if you aren't celebrating a party for months, purchase now and get this great offer! See bottom of this post for more details.

Alright let's get this party started! I am very fortunate to have some fellow party blogging girls on board to help with the celebration. I want to introduce you to my 2010 PS Party Crew (in alphabetical order):

Brandi from Tweedle Dee Designs
Brandi has such creative talent, she can design printables like nobodies business, create gorgeous tutus, bake like a mad woman and shows off all of these creations with her fantastic photography! I am sure you have all seen her work, Brandi's 4th of July free printable party set was featured all over the Internet this past month, no surprise there!


Genevieve from Celebrate Today

Genevieve is a SUPER CHICK! Her party displays and tips on how to entertain are amazing, but what really got me hooked is Genevieve's rock star attitude! I find myself giggling at Genevieve's posts and facebook conversations all of the time and can't wait to see what she will post next....she is addictive!

Jillian from Catch My Party
I just recently met Jillian through the Internet and I can not say enough kind things about her. Jillian has a passion for parties and wants to share it with the world. Here is what Jillian had to say about herself:
"I'm Jillian Tohber Leslie, founder of Catch My Party, a site for people to share their party photos with friends, family, and people who love entertaining. It's like an online party scrapbook. Plus it's a great resource for people looking for party ideas and inspiration.  We have hundreds of beautiful parties on our site, and wonderful people to connect with.
I started the site because I love parties and I wanted to create a space where people could share their joy, happiness, and creativity."


Kim from Frost Me
Kim is the creative genius behind the blog Frost Me,  which is a fantastic source for all sorts of party, wedding and shower inspiration called "Frost Me". Not only does Kim find amazing ideas for celebrations she will also create custom inspiration boards to help you create a one of a kind party.

Kristy from The Purple Pug
Kristy and I also just recently met through the Internet although I have been a fan of her for a while now. Kristy creates amazing homemade party decor like no other. I love her unique style and love for all things glittery!  Here is what Kristy had to say about herself:
"I design and create charming, unique, premium handmade party ware for extraordinary occasions. I am a WAHM to two extraordinary little boys. I adore my work, my clients and all things handmade. I am a glitter freak. I really do love purple. I hate to cook. And I am totally not funny;)"

Lelan from Good Gravy
In need of beautiful one of a kind invitations, stationary or address labels...Lelan's shop Good Gravy is the place you want to go! Lelan offers amazing works of art and at an extremely reasonable price. Lelan also shares fantastic articles on her blog, Hello Good Gravy, that keep you coming back for more. And if that wasn't enough, she shares free printables on her blog as well. I am personally in love with her "Ta Da To Do list", I use it every day!

Rebekah from A Blissful Nest
Rebekah's blog is one of the first party inspiration blogs I came across when starting Party Starters. Her attention to detail and love for all things beautiful caught my eyes and they have been glued to her blog ever since. Rebekah creates gorgeous party packages and when she designs a party or shower, boy does she now how to cover every little detail. 


Beth from Spark PR & Events

I have had the great pleasure of working with Beth from Spark PR & Events for a few months now. Every party and event created by Beth and her business partner Rena is absolutely fanominal! Here is what Beth had to say about her company:
"Spark PR & Events is a boutique event planning and public relations firm in Palm Beach, Florida. Founded by partners Beth Beattie and Rena Toppe with the shared vision for a unique approach to traditional publicity and events.
From bridal and baby showers to corporate launches and non profit galas, spark pr & events incorporates their client’s personality, vision, thoughts and inspiration into each and every event. They combine innovative ideas and traditional event planning techniques to make each special occasion one of a kind. Their strengths lie, not only in their style and creative edge, but in their ability to manage details."
