birthday fun from Erin...
Erin from Sunshine and Carousels has all kinds of good things to share...
First, stop by her blog and check out some decorating tutorials. They aren't birthday specific, but they are certainly easily adaptable! I especially like these medallions, her surprise invitations, and a seriously yummy looking recipe for carrot cake cupcakes.
Next, I asked Erin a couple questions...
Q: What's your favorite birthday memory?
A: My third year in college my best friends threw me a 'surprise' birthday party at a local restaurant and invited 40 of our friends and we had a hippie theme, pizza and cookie cake. We were all poor and in college and they made the sweetest gifts and handmade decorations and it was absolutely so much fun.
Q: What's your favorite birthday treat?
A: My favorite kind of birthday treats are just the time spent with my friends and family. I love it when people give me gifts with a lot of thought behind them or just do kind things for me. My perfect treat would be a night with coffee and board games and lots of laughter.
Sweet! And just to make this extra fun, Erin is giving away a $20 credit to her shop. Throughout this post you can get a look at the lovely things she makes, so you're gonna wanna enter for a chance!
Just leave a comment with your favorite birthday memory (be sure to include your email address so we can contact you). The giveaway will be open until Sunday night, and all winners will be announced on Monday. Good luck!
