Winner Update 2/16: This giveaway is now closed. Thanks so much to everyone that entered! And the lucky, randomly selected winner is… Commenter #10 – Jillian, who said: “love the vintage humor. What a great theme for a girls night party and you could do so many different decorating ideas to go along with the “vintage” theme. Humor like that just does NOT go out of style :)” Congrats, Jillian!


If you’ve got ANY sort of celebration coming up… from a birthday to a bridal/baby shower to a spring luncheon or cocktail party, today’s Surprise Giveaway should be especially inviting!

The giveaway comes from – an online party supply shop that has tons – and I mean TONS – of fabulous paper partyware & accessories for all sorts of occasions.

This week at HWTM, is offering up a $100 Shopping Spree to a lucky reader… which will go a long way in boosting that party budget (for yourself or a hostess friend)!

Since the selection of patterns and prints is so extensive, it was hard to choose what to feature in this post, but above and below is a small sampling of some personal favorites…


Starting at the very top: The new Plum Blossom collection is absolutely gorgeous – and was actually the inspiration for this Love in Bloom inspiration board, and I’m also loving the brand new (and very contemporary-looking!) Eden Floral and Early Bird patterns.

And in image #2, vintage humor beverage napkins by Anne Taintor are always a favorite – and soooo perfect for a girls night cocktail party!
