Surprise Giveaway WINNER {Espresso Set}

Surprise Giveaway WINNER {Espresso Set}The winner of the French Bull Espress Set giveaway is… Rachel, who said:

“I have to say G. It is so hard to find exactly what I want online. I end up searching through tons of sites that have nothing I like and then have to piece everything (games, servingware, favors) from a billion different places. And what do I google “hip baby shower“? “hipster wedding party” so I don’t get 89,000 Disney responses or or over the top cutesy fluff? What’s a stylish, modern girl to do?”. {just for kicks, I actually googled these search phrases Rachel mentioned so you can see what the search results for them really are}

Rachel – I sooo feel your pain! Please send your mailing address to jennifer@hwtm.com so we can send you your espresso set!

For everyone else – thank you so much for all the great comments – it was so fun to hear your opinions – and good to know for the future. All of the “frustration options” were picked at least once – and it looks like there’s a general dread felt around the world when it comes to baby and bridal shower games and activities. Going to have to start brainstorming some solutions for that!

It was also interesting how many of you brought up the RSVP (or lack there of) issue. I’ve noticed this too – about 15 people even showed up to my wedding unannounced until the day of! I have to say, that was definitely a seating-chart nightmare at the very last minute. 2 of my poor bridesmaids even skipped their hair appointments to help me out with fixing that at the last minute, for which, 6 years later, I’m still grateful! For showers and everyday parties, I can’t figure out why this is so difficult to get guests to do with the options of both phone and email nowadays…maybe we can start putting the “Please RSVP” info in even bigger letters than the party info….think that would help? (j/k!)
