December 18, 2009

This is rounding out to be yet another lovely Friday on SMP...despite the fact that it's still pretty darn chilly here in Boston, we've had a day full of stylish wedding inspiration and tasty holiday treats. So we're going to keep the momentum going and announce a brand new Inspiration to Reality Challenge and name the winners of our most recent contests and giveaways.

First, we have another dream team lined up ready to make one of your fabulous inspiration boards come to life. For this next challenge we have the fantastically talented crew of James Christianson Photography, Carissa Beauty, Sweet Letter Press, RSVP Shindig, Anna Be Bridal Boutique, Delilah's Flowers of Denver, and cinematographer Kevin Von Qualen. Our vendors will be choosing the winning board on Monday, December 21st, so head on over to the Style Circle and design to your little heart's content. Make sure to tag and name your board Inspiration Board Challenge #9 to be considered!

And now... we have the pleasure of sharing with you the winner of Monday's Inspiration to Reality Challenge...Congratulations Sticky! This completely amazing, completely chic board, appropriately named "ampearsand" caught the eye of our vendors and they just couldn't resist its colorful, whimsical charm. This design will come life at the hands of style gurus Gina Barber from A Thyme to Cook, White Dress by the Shore, Steve DePino Photography, Stonington Paperie, Dana Bartone, Jessica’s Country Flowers, and Buzz Media.

Loving this color scheme... this one is about as irresistible as they come, but we'll (try to) wait patiently for it's unveiling after the New Year.

Last, but most certainly not least is the winner of the vintage car banner from A Bride’s Ride. Renee is giving one very special SMP reader one of her fabulous getaway kits just for stopping by and telling us about their favorite banner and garland. But that's not all, she is also offering FREE shipping on orders until Jan. 31. So just head on over to her seriously cute site and simply mention Style Me Pretty when purchasing.

Enough talking... it's time to announce our winner Laura, who said...

Yay! I’m in love with the “Love” banner with the pink flower garland. We’re getting married on my parents farm up in a field of wild flowers by the apple orchards. We’ll be having a yellow and pink lemonade stand and an old yellow antique car up at the ceremony site (complete with those giagantic balloons, of course!)…these banners would go perfectly with the vintage car and is the lovely little finishing detail for a fun-whimsical theamed wedding!
