100 Followers - And a giveaway!

It's official...I've been watching that little image on the right side of my blog wondering if I'd reach 100 followers.  Well, on Friday evening it happened:


YEA!

So of course, with a special landmark like this should come a giveaway of some sort, right?  I am excited to say that I have been contacted by a company to host a giveaway on March 1st.  I am in the process of finalizing the details so stay tuned next month for that one.  But for now, I'd love to give something away to a fellow blogger as a thank you for all of your support and wonderful feedback, comments and overall encouragement.

Problem is, I'm not sure what to give away!  I actually have two things leftover from the wedding (that hasn't even happened yet) that I am not going to be able to use.  I was thinking of selling them originally but figured maybe I'd just give one of them away instead.  So how about some feedback?

If you would be interested in one of the two following items, let me know.  By Wednesday morning I will announce which item I have decided to give away and will have a contest started that will end Friday evening with a winner announced on Saturday. 

Item # 1:  100 Red Chinese Take out Boxes



These are half pint size and measure 3" x 2 1/4" x 2 1/2"  I originally purchased them as favor boxes for the wedding but the red didn't match the deeper shade of cranberry that is my wedding colors.  So now I'm left with these brand new beauties.  You could use them to hold mini cupcakes as a favor at a bridal shower, birthday party or wedding.  Or for candy bar containers.  We decorated ours with colored ribbon and favor tags/stickers.  Since Valentine's Day is just around the corner, they'd make a great way to package gifts for friends, a classroom, church group, etc.

Item # 2:  Flower Girl or Junior Bridesmaid Dress


                    

You may remember that I didn't feel like this dress matched the style of my wedding after we received it.  It was originally purchased for my 6 year old cousin shown above and can be worn shorter or longer depending on the height of the girl.  The turquoise sash is detachable and so it can be coordinated with any color.  You can even add some embellishments (rhinestones, brooches, flowers, etc) if you are crafty enough.  It is a size 8 and cost $85 at a bridal salon...brand new, never altered...could be an amazing prize and dress for the right bride/person.

So majority will win.  Whichever item gets the most feedback as being desired will be the one I'll giveaway.

Congrats on reaching 100 followers! :) I think the take-out boxes would be great to give away, since they can be used for so many different things, like you said, including a birthday party, shower, etc. I agree that they’d be great for holding cupcakes!

Congrats to you for have such a fan-worthy blog! :)

Sarah Ann said...

Well congratulations! I'd say give away the takeout boxes. They're versatile in their use and also for the people who could use them. Like me for example, I have no little girls I know of who are that exact size. Takeout boxes on the other hand? So many uses! Not to mention one of my wedding colors, but that's just the luck isn't it?

Congrats on the 100 readers! I'm almost there myself and I can't believe it. I don't need either anymore since I'm finished with our wedding, but I vote the take out boxes. I think more readers would be able to use them, and I think the dress might fit a more particular style.

Congrats on reaching 100 followers! I just reached 25 today which made me happy!

I also would vote for the favour boxes as loads of different uses for them, maybe you could sell the dress on ebay.

As for the giveaway....I vote for the take out boxes! My Honey's bday is coming up this year, and I was planning a big shabang (if $ allows) for his big 50!!! He looks so good still, doesn't he?
Great giveaway! =)
