Bloom-versary Party Giveaway

Happy Bloom-versary! Can you even believe it's been a year since the day we were introduced? We're so thankful for the open, real, helpful community this has become. We love your tips, your comments, your questions, and your enthusiasm. We've talked together about everything from keeping the spark in your marriage to schooling options for your children. We've shared recipes and home tours and party ideas. It's been a great year and we think this next year is going to be even better! First of all, we're starting the year off with an entire week of giveaways! And we've got all sorts of amazing guests and features on the horizon.

Let's kick off Bloom's second year.


Since Bloom-versary is kind of like a big, online party (yes, you should wear a hat), we thought it would be fun and fitting to start the week by giving away a party.

We're excited to introduce you to Love The Day where shopkeeper Lindi creates darling printables to help you celebrate the important events in your life. Sometimes we look around at photos of parties around the internets and think to ourselves, "how do people have time to create all the cute stuff - the food labels, the invitations, the banner, etc?" The answer is that they're probably not doing it all themselves; they find people like Lindi to lighten their load.

Check out some of her darling designs/themes:






You want to host a party this weekend, don't you? So do we.
Maybe you'll get lucky and win a printable party of your choice from Love The Day - which one would you choose?

My daughter's first birthday is coming up and we are doing a cupcake theme so her cupcake printables would be perfect! The are so cute!

Linds said...

Congrats on reaching the one year milestone!

Love the pritables with my 3 year-old's approaching birthday in mind I would get the train party. But that sunshine party just makes me happy.

So cute. So clever. Can't believe it's been a year. Way to go Anne & Em!

Jonesy said...

Glad you're back! Now I can resume my daily Bloom fix.

I'm always impressed with others' talents, especially when I've tried my hand at designing, and let's just say my talents lie elsewhere! :)

I LOVE the "Little Man" theme as well as the "Sunshine"!!! Do you do adult themes, too? My hubby's coming up on a BIG birthday...

Sarah said...

I love these!

Andrea said...

I think the hardest part of winning this giveaway would be choosing between all the darling parties! I think, however, that I just might go with the sunshine party (even if I don't win!) to brighten up my daughter's mid-winter birthday.

Happy Anniversary, Bloom! I discovered you about six months into your first year and promptly moved you to the top of my Top 5 list. Thanks for being my morning inspiration!

Christina said...

So hard to choose. The flower party, the sunshine party, and the vintage circus are all calling to me. What a great printable find!

Jennifer said...

perfect stuff to plan a party around. These would be great for my baby's first birthday.

Alicia said...

I try to make my own things like these printables but they're not NEARLY as cute and professional. How nice to have someone else to do the work! sorainima@gmail.com

um, yes please!!!

So nicely designed! When I do stuff like this myself it takes me forever and doesn't turn out this cute. I love the growing availability of custom printables.

I would pick something boyish since my boy's b-day is coming up!
