Winner Update 1/14: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks so much to everyone who entered! I can’t believe how many fantastic budget tips were posted in the comments… great stuff!! And the randomly selected winner is:

Commenter # 251 – Melissa F., who said: “My budget tip would be to purchase one really nice serving piece that you could use more than once for many different occasions. I have one dish that I used for spinach salad with strawberries and then again for favors at a baby shower and My fave theme would be Hollywood Glam I LOVE Sparkle and color!!”

Congrats, Melissa!

The “Black Vine” collection is definitely my favorite, and happens to be the same color scheme for my upcoming wedding! My fiance and I are actually modeling our colors and decor after the HWTM post of Jennifer Skog’s bridal shower (black and white damask with lime green). Black and white are stunning by themselves, but throwing in lime accents brings the palette to a whole new level. Love it.

My favorite theme is absolute the Red Dinner Party theme. Red looks good any season, for any reason. Always a classic.

My favorite dinner party tip on a budget is to do all the decor yourself. Wrap pillar candles with 3″ ribbon in your color of choice, and use the same color ribbon to tie together silverware in place of napkin rings. Candles and ribbon are SO cheap compared to fresh flowers, and can be used again for other occasions.

A good budget tip for parties is to opt for a “dessert” party or an appetizer party- going for one part of the meal can save you money! With Valentine’s just around the corner- go for a theme that invites chocolate lovers to share their favorites!

What a lovely way to start the new year! As a mother of two little ones I find myself thinking of my job as being a human napkin! As a result, I crave any opportunity to dress up! My favorite package is hands down the Hollywood Glam! With my Erte prints and this package my house is almost as decked out as I am! Thanks so much for offering this giveaway! Happy New Year!
