While we consider 11 Magnolia Lane to be a “lifestyle” blog–meaning we try not to fall exclusively into any one niche of decorating, cooking, events etc.– with two of the three main contributors being in the event industry its only natural we deal a lot with parties.

So, Terry and I have been talking and we have decided that while there is no shortage of party & event blogs that feature perfectly staged party displays done by professionals, here at Magnolia Lane, we want to see how you real people throw a party. So, show us what you have!!! Please submit, via email to [email protected], any party you are proud of and we’d love to feature it (and your blog) via our new on-going series called “Event-tastic”!

Here are the “guidelines” to be featured:

1) Any type of party or event is welcome–from a special dinner for your significant other, to a classroom event to a grand celebration. {FYI, we LOVE baby and wedding showers around here}. However, please submit a post that includes “DIY” directions on how you put together your event, or email us the information on it if you don’t have a blog. We want to learn from each other, and organizing the party is often as important as the details, so share it ALL!

2) The event must be put together mainly by you. Of course help from friends (friends in the event business are fine) and purchasing from a variety of resources is great. But events run by a professional party planner, with completely outsourced catering and professional photography events don’t qualify as DIY events. We want to see how the “every” woman does it! Event professionals are more then welcome to submit events, as we would love to share your tricks and expertise, please just focus on the “how” not just the end result.

3) Please give as much detail on the event as you can, we will also happily link to a follow-up post on your blog. For a good example, please see this post on my Dinner Party. The goal is to show the event, and tell how you pulled it off, so to speak.

4) Please be a follower or email subscriber of our Blog as we want to encourage our Magnolia Lane “community”.

Questions? Simply email us…we won’t rule anything out so feel free to send us a note. We can’t wait to see what you do!

Thanks for stopping by!
