Winners of the Parties and Picnics Challenge!

Well, it looks like our readers know how to party!  We had a wonderful time virtually attending the posh parties and pleasing picnics that you invited us to this week.  You have inspired us with your creative party themes, gorgeous favors and invitations, delectable treats, and more.  What a fun challenge!

This week’s guest judge, Kellie (visiting from Nest of Posies), was happy to be a party attendee, too.  Here is what she told us after visiting all of your links:

“I’m one of those people who are instantly drawn to party fluff.  So to be asked to come and judge THIS link party was a definite thrill for me.  You all are so talented and so amazing.  I gained so many ideas while looking through your posts of parties and picnics.  It was a pleasure to visit all your fiestas!  I even feel like I gained a few pounds while looking through all the food, as well.  Thanks for inviting me to the party, ladies!”

Let’s take a look at Kellie’s favorites from the Parties and Picnics Challenge….

#25 Tea Party Dessert Table from Girl. Inspired.

About the overall challenge winner, Kellie said, “Everything is beautifully done.  All the details, decorations, cakes, desserts, dresses, and those hats–simply gorgeous!  I dug a little deeper into her blog and could not believe even the cakes were homemade.  Amazing details–some thrifted for decor, but most were handmade.  Just WOW!
