Hi Everyone! I’m really excited to bring you this giveaway today, because it comes directly from… US! :) A few weeks ago we launched our new HWTM Party Printables Shop on Etsy, but I wanted to wait to do a formal announcement on the blog because there were only a few designs added when we first launched it. These things always take soooo much longer than you want… I wish I could just magically “poof” everything into the shop, but so far it hasn’t been quite that easy! ;)

Anyways, we’re still in the process of adding new designs daily, but the shop is finally at a point where I’d like to share it with you… and what better way to do that then with a GIVEAWAY, right? And while we’re at it, I’m thinking we might as well make it a BIG one, SO….

TEN WINNERS from this giveaway will receive the Party Package of their choice from the shop! The winners can pick ANY Party Collection that they’d like from the shop PLUS two additional items like Food Labels, Invitations, Address Labels, etc. Scroll down for more info on the types of products we carry + details on how to enter the giveaway! And if you don’t have a party coming up soon you can always gift your prize to a loved one. :)

We all know the little ones love hot chocolate, but I wanted to create something especially for the adults this time around, so this particular Hot Cocoa station (from our Sparkle & Shine Metallic Dinner Party) features gourmet peppermint, chocolate, and vanilla marshmallows and a pretty bottle of rum that guests can splash in to mix up a hot toddy! You can make your own flavored marshmallows – or just buy them to keep things easy – and get creative with the liquor mix-ins: brandy, coffee liqueur, raspberry liqueur, Peppermint Schnapps, etc. are all great options for flavoring hot chocolate.
