I’m Toasting my Mom, Sisters and Friends – “What’s Your Spring Celebration Announcement?”

April 13th, 2011 · 2 Brilliant Opinions · Giveaways/Contests, Random Things That Make Me Smile



Sponsored/Paid Post Compensation Level 13

It’s spring  and I am really looking forward to a special day I have planned next month.  Every May, I’m in a quandary about how to spend Mother’s Day.  In addition to spending time with my own mother, I have a bevy of sisters, nieces, neighbors and friends I want to celebrate.  These women have either helped me care for my own children (with their advice, tips and gently worn clothing) or “mothered me” through some difficult times.  This is my way of saying “Thank You.”  

I am hosting a very special Mother’s Day tea and luncheon.  So far the planning is off without a hitch.  My one regret is that I neglected to send save the date cards to these very special but super busy ladies.  I have already received a few regrets from friends who have concert tickets, travel plans or other events.  Don’t make my mistake, definitely check out Shutterfly’s save the date cards.

To add a fun note to the event, I have asked every attendee to wear a gorgeous spring hat.  Hats have a way of bringing out a woman’s personality. Is she mysterious, sexy, fun, flamboyant, exciting, elegant or funny?  I am also sure that at least one woman will not even bother to wear a hat.  I’m  calling that hatless gal  the “You’re not the boss of me”  guest (There’s one at every party.)   I plan on capturing all these wonderful women in hats with my digital camera and placing the pictures into  beautiful photo books for keepsakes.

I have a few surprises for my guests that I don’t want to giveaway.  What I can giveaway to my blog followers is a chance to win  50 Free Shutterfly announcement cards and a  Shutterfly 8” x 8” photo book.  To enter, you must leave a comment, telling me what you will be celebrating this spring (mandatory entry).  It may be a new job, baby, anniversary, wedding, graduation or just the return of Mr. Sun.

For additional entries (to increase your chances of winning)  follow me on twitter @waterwinetravel and/or fan the waterwinetravel.com Facebook page (please tell me you’ve done this in your comment so I can credit your additional entries). Giveaway starts Wednesday, April 13, 2011 and ends Thursday, April 21, 2011 at 9 am EST.  The winner will be chosen via  random.org’s sequence generator. I will notify the winner via e-mail (please leave a valid e-mail address or subscribe to play it safe).   I will also update this post once a winner is selected. Winner will be notified via email and will have one week to claim their cards and photo books.  Good luck!
