If you have a blog, get your creative juices flowing… GigMasters is hosting a contest just for bloggers! Whether you have a little blog or a big one, you can enter to win a huge prize worth $800 – including $125 worth of goodies from my shop and a $100 gift card to Pottery Barn!! And every blogger will win some good exposure. Read on for details!

How to enter

To enter, post to your blog about your perfect winter party. Is it a birthday party for your baby? An adults-only dinner party? A cookie exchange with your friends and family? Anything goes! Dream big and share your ideas. : ) Just be sure to do these four things:

{1.} Make the title of your post “My Perfect Winter Party.”

{2.} Answer at least one of these questions within the post: Who is the party for? Who is on the guest list? Where will the party take place? What kind of entertainment will you have? What will you serve? What do the decorations look like? Why is winter the best season for this party? How will winter influence your food, decorations or entertainment?

{3.} At the end of the post, include this sentence (including links): This blog is part of the Win Your Perfect Party contest sponsored by GigMasters. To find out how to enter visit Life of the Party.

{4.} Tweet your post (hashtag: #winterparty), post a message on GigMasters’ Facebook page, or email GigMasters directly to let them know about your post. They’ll help publicize your post by Retweeting and posting about it on Facebook!

What you win

Not even kidding… the prize pack is MAJOR! Check out this list:

{1.} A $300 credit at GigMasters for party entertainment – from DJs to clowns to sword swallowers, they’ve got it all! It’s the added touch that will make your party extra-special.

{2.} A $299 package from Storymix Media – they’ll send you 3 HD cameras to use at your event. After the party, they’ll take your favorite clips and professionally edit your movie to preserve your memories forever.

{3.} $125 in paper goods and printables from Chickabug – hey, that’s me! ; ) And I’m giving away a party package that includes 20 invitations, a sheet of address labels, 2 sheets of stickers, 30 water bottle labels, and DIY printable buffet cards, cupcake wrappers & toppers, favor tags, and a banner. This is the biggest prize I’ve ever given away to date, and you can choose any of my themes if you win!

{4.} As if all that weren’t awesome enough, you also win a $100 gift certificate to Pottery Barn (!!!).

Deadline to enter
