It’s So Pretty! Giveaway March 4, 2009

Okay ladies (and gents)…. I apologize we haven’t blogged in a few days (five to be exact) but we are back… yeah!  Ashley (office mgr), SaraLain (intern), Erika (intern) and I (jaimeson) have been busy, busy lately with our FABULOUS brides and just getting the office in order while the boss (jacki) is taking some vacation time….. so jealous of her right now!

Anyways, stay close as we have about three posts coming today and tomorrow…. so let’s get started!!!!

Ashley was gracious enough to attend a bridal show at Equestrian Woods this past weekend in my absence.  Equestrian Woods holds this event once a year for their members and brides having an event at their location…. so everyone attending (vendor wise) all received a 6 foot table…. below is what we did with our table…. cute huh?










WELL, we had a FABULOUS door prize, but unfortuneately they didn’t give any of them out….. boo hoo! 

SO, we decided to do a contest on the BLOG….. yeah!


Here’s the skinny (as they say)…..

* what you win (which everyone wants to know)…. 100 DOLLARS to spend at it’s so pretty!  (this is not just $100 in favors, this is $100 TOTAL – so if your order is only $80 and shippping and taxes are $20, then you’re covered….. how fabulous is that?)

* go to it’s so pretty! and pick out your most favorite favor

* submit the photo of the favor and a 50 word (or less) description in our “comments” of this blog of why you like this favor, how you will use this favor or anything that will make us smile and maybe even *chuckle* (please leave email address so we may contact you if you are the lucky winner!)

* contest ends: wednesday, march 11th at 11:59pm

* we will post the winner on thursday, march 12th 

Remember, it’s so pretty!  has favors for every occassion….. weddings, bridal showers, birthdays, baby showers, ladies night…..
