I love this giveaway! probably because it combines two of my favourite things: flowers and garlands♥ and if I'm lucky, it can be mine and PINK, which would make it absolutely perfect!

What a great shop! I'm doing a baby shower in January and a garland in their three shades of pink would be perfect to accent the cake table.

Fun! Thank you for the giveaway.

Jessica said...

I love the last picture, can you imagine a gift wrapped in a beautiful flower garland?

Kristy said...

The garlands are amazing! I would love to have one for every holiday and every occasion! Yay!

Cheryl said...

Garland is the best because it's an inexpensive way to bring detail into your home or to help celebrate a party. And, because it's inexpensive you can make it for whatever you need- change the color or use different shapes but these flowers are TOO CUTE!!

Jenn said...

I'm surrounded by boys- two little men, a male doggie and my hubby. I need something girlie. Please pick me!

Esther said...

These are awesome. How cute would they be all along the ceiling of my little girs room!

Morgan said...

I adore these beautiful flower garlands! It would be the perfect new decoration for my space!

Michelle Alexandra said...

A garland would be the perfect touch for our apartment. I'd have to choose which place to put one, as several places could use something special.

I am in the process of renovating an area in my basement to be my very own sewing and craft space. I think this gorgeous garland would be the perfect touch for the area. I love how delicate the flowers look and her amazing variety of colors.

Christi said...

What could be more swell? A custom garland ... custom colors ... I'm already imagining where it might go in my house. Probably in the living room on the bookcase to brighten the room & make me smile every day I walk in the door. Hmm ... what colors? Maybe a Florida Orange & Pale Yellow? Or, Seafoam & Lilac? Or, the best would be Burgandy & Gold to put out for FSU Game Day! A game day garland could make my game day prep complete!

Siew said...

What's not to love about handmade flowers and garlands? The hardest part would be picking colours.

LRW said...

Gorgeous garland!! I would love to hang it in my office/work space for inspiration!!

Maryann said...

Looking at it all makes me feel as if I am in a candy store! I kept saying "oohh I love this one, no this one, and so forth. I LOVE it all.

Shannon said...

I'm turning 40 on January 31st and I'm trying to get up the nerve to throw myself a BIG party, something I haven't done since college (college was beer, strangers and flannel but now I'm thinking cocktails, lovely food and all my friends and family is more appropriate). I don't usually care to be the center of attention so at this point I'm just contemplating a party BUT I think that being the recipient of such a lovely flower garland just might give me enough nerve to do it! Guts and gumption for a party from a sweet little garland?...YOU BET!

The Vintage Carnival Garland is swell, so swell. It is just so happy - happy like a couple kissing behind a ball of cotton candy; a toddler discovering caramel apples for the first time; the smell of freshly popped corn! These garlands are sure to make every party and every day swell, so swell.
