I’m planning a bridal shower this July, so I’d love to see bridal shower ideas like party favors, group gift ideas, and cool invitations.

these stationery designs are so cute! Love all of Pinkerton’s stuff!

As for the blog – I think you’re doing a great job as-is! But if I had to give a suggestion, I would love to see more cool cocktail stuff like recipes & presentation ideas. Things like the blik & clingy-thingy drink decals are great too!

Being a KY girl, I’d love to see your ideas for a Derby party, since it’s this weekend…any excuse to use those fabulous old sterling julep cups!

Sparkle & Shine Design SAYS:

I was just scouring the net for cool stationery today – I’d love to win this pack!

I also loved your bridal butterfly shower ideas. Being a soon-to-be-bride and a butterfly fiend, this was right up my alley! So, more party decorating themes and decorating on a budget would be great.

Danelle SAYS:

These stationary prints are great! I’ve been meaning to build up my stationary stash and winning these would be perfect!

Sarah SAYS:

I’m a paper goods fiend with not enough money to fit my tastes. This is right up my alley… you gotta love those little airplanes.

I’d love to see more off beat party ideas for those not “official” holidays that offer a time to celebrate. Things like the aforementioned Kentucky Derby, Cinco de Mayo, May Day, etc.

Blue Orchid Designs SAYS:

I’m with Sarah – the offbeat holidays would be fun. And Cinco de Mayo is this week (no pressure)! :)

hiphostess SAYS:

ummm…ya…so this Saturday is: Cinco de Mayo, the Kentucky Derby, AND the big fight (De La Hoya Vs Mayweather in Vegas). no pressure, huh? :) I’m thinking…derby party during the day, fiesta for dinner, and HBO/cocktails for the after party. I’ll see what I can whip together for posts the next couple of days…we’ll at least get you some good recipe ideas and a few cool themed product finds.

have you guys noticed that most of the pre-made derby party supplies out there are… not exactly fantastic? (to say the least!) If anyone has some great resources for cool & MODERN equestrian-themed supplies, by all means please send them my way! I’ll be forever grateful! [email protected]. gracias :)
