I have been all bolstered with ideas of Wonderland lately. Threading them together to devise the perfect Mad Tea Party. If you don't already know, Vanessa from A Fanciful Twist hosts this annual summer event, so if you are interested in signing up, click the link above and you will have a chance :)
I am truly much more excited for this than I should be. I have been planning for this event for quite some months now and now that it's almost upon us, I simply can't believe it! Gathering inspiration...it's a wonderful world of color!!!! (I just got back from Disneyland, sorry my mind is still in Disney mode!)
Pintrest has honestly become a wee bit of an obsession. There is just something about the idea of gathering color and photo inspiration so easily....I love it so much!
This might just be my favorite dress ever.
I believe it's worthy of Alice herself :)
Anyway, enough of my obsessiveness. Instead, we're going to talk...GIVEAWAY!
On the day of the party, July 28th, I will have prepared one Wonderland, Mad Hatter inspired gift bag for a lucky winner. Now, the winner will be selected randomly, as is the only fair way, but in order to qualify to be that winner, you must follow a couple of instructions. (UGH! Rules!!) You will have until July 27th to enter for the giveaway--simply notify me by leaving a comment.
One of the things I really like about Wonderland is the leeway it allows for you to slip out of your own skin and become someone else. So I would like all of you to invent your own "fairy names" for the party. Below I have listed some suggestions, but feel free to create whatever you want. It doesn't have to be fairy-ish. But whatever you choose to use, it will serve as your Wonderland identity.
So here are the....err, rules for the giveaway:
1. You must leave a comment saying you are interested in participating in the giveaway. (This means it must be okay that for you to give me your address via email so I can ship the package to you if you win.)
2. In your comment, tell me your Wonderland name. Your Wonderland name will serve as your identity for the drawing,so make sure you have one if you want to participate!
3. Become a member of my blog--"following" is fine too. In that same comment, let me know you have become a member. You can enter more than one comment, but you will only be counted once.
Okay, so does that cover everything? You don't have to participate in a Mad Tea Party of your own to be eligible for the giveaway. But I strongly suggest it! It's going to be so much fun :)
Now, if you are wondering why I wanted you to do Wonderland names, I don't really have a specific answer for you. I decided to make name fairy name tags for my friend and myself because we both entered our names in this fairy generator and I thought it would be fun for us to go to the Mad Tea Party with that name. Then I got carried away and created a TON of nametags. And I thought...well, I might as well do something with these. So that's where the Wonderland name idea came from. (HINT: One or two of these nametags just might be included in the giveaway....)
Here are the names I came up with. Feel free to use any of these or something of your own creation!
I will share more information about the goodies that the giveaway contains as the very important date approaches. Toodles! xx
