It's My Birthday...Create My Party!!

GAP Cascade ruffle cardigan
OK its not officially my birthday until November 6th.  I am turning...wait...deep breath...38...GASP!!  How the heck did that happen, I was just 13 dang it! Well anyway...I am throwing myself a party, an actual real be more specific a Cupcake & Cocktails party. Here is my plan so far and what is weird is the following popped into my head because I was inspired by a charcoal gray sweater & jeans...go figure!

These are a MUST
  •  A do it yourself cupcake decorating buffet with different flavors of cupcakes, frostings & toppings
  •  A fun little bar with a few swanky cocktails
  •  The color scheme will be Gray, Cream and Leafy Green (incorporate damask)

Where does the contest fit in??? I want you to inspire me...CREATE MY PARTY!! I need suggestions on cupcake flavors, frostings, toppings, drinks, recipes & decorations. If you can incorporate photos or full blown inspiration boards that will get you extra points! Once you have done your research and you are ready to present your ideas, post your presentation on your blog and send me the link! I will then of course feature your ideas on my blog for all of my readers to see. If you don't have a blog then by all means send me an email with all of the details and photos, I will share those as well!
Deadline is November 1, 2010
What is in it for you besides the utmost fun in planning a party...A PRIZE OF COURSE!! I will choose one person's presentation that totally inspires me and gets my creative juices flowing. That lucky person will receive the following:
  • A $30 Gift Certificate to Blush Printables (one of my very favorite vintage printable shops)
  • 8 qty favor boxes of your choice from Party Starters plus FREE shipping
SO far that is 30 +8 which equals my soon to be age 38! LOL so clever ehh!! OH and of course I need one to grow on...
  • Genevieve from Celebrate Today has graciously offered up a set of 12 Kandy Kones and a package of her triple crepe paper streamers!!! 
***All of this is over $80 in value!!***
