Giveaway: Peppers and Pollywogs

If you have ever planned a toddler birthday party, then I am sure you will agree having an expert to come along side and help you figure out the details is a great idea. Ack! But who can afford a party planner for a 3 year old? not me, that's for sure. But I may have found the next best thing - Peppers and Pollywogs!

Peppers and Pollywogs is the creation of Lisa Kothari, who brought us the earlier guest post about planning a park party. On her website, we learn that "her main party planning belief is that no matter the budget or amount of time a parent has, an incredible party can always be thrown, keeping children cheerful and parents stress-free during their wonderfully planned celebration!" That sounds like my kind of party planning!

What most impressed me about her site is the wide variety of party planning ideas. She certainly has her hand on the top trends in kids parties and entertainment. Recent posts provided a tutorial for Despicable Me costumes, the French Macarons trend and how it can be used in a child's party theme, and even how to use balloons as a party invitation.

I hope you will find the site as inspirational and creative as I have. To thank you for visiting and taking a look around her site, Lisa is offering a copy of her book to one lucky reader.
