Garnish giveaway {making the party special}

Hello you crazy kids! Did you guys miss me yesterday like I missed you?! We had an excellent outdoor party and I wish you could have all been there. I ate so much that I shouldn't, I didn't get a run in, and now I am exhausted... so as far as I am concerned the party was a success.
Today I not only get to share pictures with you but I have an awesome giveaway for you guys and there will be 2 winners! Woooo whooo! Our giveaway is from Garnish & they are responsible for some amazing party supplies that help to give a complete custom feel to any event. Here were some of the things I ordered most recently and used for the Hub's party...

Garnish goods are amazing quality, wallet friendly, and perfect for entertaining. Today I am giving away TWO $25 gift certificates (which will be emailed by garnish) for anything in their shop. They have some amazing wooden utensils, goody bags, fun straws, and fantastic labels.

Simply leave a comment naming one thing you would like to order from their shop and your email. I will use to select two winners on August 1, 2012. You have until midnight EST Tuesday July 31, 2012 to enter. 

Here are some pictures to recap our party & a lookieloo at our new outdoor table...

Forks from garnish 

And for those wondering about the table, there is a wooden slat that covers over the drink trough when it's not in use. Look at my handsome hubs gettin' his drink on. Welcome to your 30's babe! 

Even though the party was fun, the little man had other plans in mind...he just wanted to play.

Isn't his shirt fun? It was my most recent Gap Kids score for only $4.00. It makes me happy.
So who likes the table and who wishes they were at the party? I cannot wait to hear what you guys think. Make sure and enter to win one of the $25 gift certificates to garnish and have an amazing weekend! I cannot wait to see you guys here next week after a nice restful weekend.
