Who Says I Never Win Anything?

Who says I never win anything?  Well I do!  I can't remember the last time I won anything.  But then in July I got word that I won a giveaway from A Beautiful Mess.  Oh you mean that awesome blog that I love reading? Yea!  I won a whole bunch of party supplies by BHLDN, which I might add is an awesome website for wedding and party supplies.  So not only did I win a bitchin prize, but it was from a blog that I really admire.  Cool huh?  

Well here is what I one.  From what they had described, I thought I just won a few party supplies but this mammoth package came in the mail and I was surprised that it came with a bunch of stuff to actually throw a pretty decent sized party with.  I mean check out this stuff!

It came in this nice canvas box!  So I've only started entering giveaways since April which is when I really started to become a part of the blogging community.  What's great about blogging is that there are so many people offering giveaways and there is a good chance you will win because the community is much smaller than say a large giveaway at a mall or something.  Winning something has really made me excited and feel like I could win again, it's addictive!  Don't know why these pics came out so crappy but I'll blame it on the fact that I was shaking with excitement lol.

I won napkins, 8 tea light holders, straws, pom pom decor, fans, wooden forks and knives, a cute banner, and a cake cutter.  I averaged it to be over a $100 at least.  And if you ever check out the BHLDN website they have so many cool items.  

To see a better description and pics of the prizes with links you can go here at ABeautifulMess.com. Thanks Elsie and Emma and the folks at BHLDN!

I guess the only thing left is to throw a party!

Have you won anything cool from blog giveaways?
