Kirkland’s Grand Opening recap + a $100 gift card giveaway!

When I talk about my blog in relation to my life, I always say something is in my “blog life” versus my “real life”. I don’t do this intentionally, it’s just that it isn’t very often that these two worlds cross paths. Last Saturday I had the rare opportunity to have these two worlds come together and it was weird. Fun, and awesome, and weird.

As I mentioned Friday, I was asked (along with Beth from Free Stylin’) to help celebrate the Grand Opening of the Kirkland’s store in the Austin area. It was so fun to get to be a part of an event! They had a preview party the night before and several of my local blog friends came. We also got to each bring a guest to the preview party friday night, so I brought my (very pregnant) sister (I bet you can’t guess which girl is my sister in the photo below! lol We look like twins).

Front Row: Kat (from Kirkland’s), Annie (Jamie’s friend), Jamie, Lindsay, Beth, Me, Jenn, and Lindsey (my sister)
Back Row: Danielle (from Kirkland’s), Ruth (Lindi’s friend), Ellie (Lindsay’s friend), Lindi, Gina, Reeta (Beth’s sister)

Kirkland’s asked Beth and I if we would each bring a favorite holiday treat to the event on Saturday so on Friday we set up a tablescape with room for our treats. I think it turned out really nice! Good thing Beth is a pro at tablescapes.

Here we are on Saturday during the event. Beth made 3 Ingredient Cookies and I made some Chocolate Bar Toffee that I will share with you guys later this week.

Kirkland’s went all-out for Beth and I. They made some tags for us to “tag” our favorite things around the store.

Here we are posing in front of all our favorite things. I chose the chicken wire shelf, the mirror behind me, and a big lantern next to Beth. (I ended up buying that mirror for my daughter’s room!)

Kirkland’s also printed out these flyers and placed them around the store. I laughed out loud when I read “Free Design Consultations!” because I certainly am not a professional designer. I do enjoy blogging about decorating my own house, but to see someone else consider me an expert had me in a fit of giggles (and totally flattered). I do honestly prefer just tinkering in my own home as a hobby though.

It was a really fun weekend and it was very exciting for this boring stay-at-home mom to be treated like a star for a couple days. I generally shy away from the spotlight, but I’ll admit it was nice to be validated by such a big brand who I like so much. I have put a lot of time and hard work into this blog, so it was very exciting to be recognized for it. (I do feel extremely awkward even writing this post though because I get embarrassed by publicity and generally don’t toot my own horn.)

When they asked me to be a part of the Kirkland’s big Grand Opening event, I told them I absolutely would love to be a part of it, but under two conditions; 1) I wanted Beth to co-host with me, and 2) I wanted a gift card to give away to one of my readers. They happily obliged to both requests, so now is the fun part for you!

To enter the giveaway, simply follow the directions below which are very easy (leave a comment. Done.). I hate jumping through hoops for giveaways as I’m sure you do too, so I try to keep ‘em light and easy. You’re welcome. xoxo

  • PRIZE: One $100 gift card redeemable at any Kirkland’s store, online or in person. One winner.

GIVEAWAY: faux cupcake ornaments from KamNCo!!

* This giveaway is now closed. The winners of the faux cupcakes are comment #64 Kristen and comment #55 Shelley F. Thanks everyone for participating! *

(This giveaway is for the entire planet, so if you don’t live in the USA, today is your lucky day! And of course USA peeps can enter too! dur.)

Oh. My. Cuteness. Central. Check out the most adorable little faux cupcakes I received in the mail last week! {squeal!}

kamnco_cupcakes_hoh_5

They were a surprise for me from the darling Ela from KamNCo. And if these brightly colored, festive mini cupcakes didn’t take the cake! (pun intended!), then she certainly had me at “Hello” with this custom House of Hepworths one!

kamnco_cupcakes_hoh_1  kamnco_cupcakes_hoh_2

I seriously squealed OUT.LOUD. when I opened the package and saw these little goodies. They are just so… well… cute.

I wanted you guys to get a good reference for the size of them so I had my darling little pudding cup pose with them, and as you can tell from her beaming smile, she’s head-over-heels for these cupcakes too.

kamnco_cupcakes_hoh_4

She is {obviously} the most excited about her own personal custom cupcake in her favorite color – pink! She actually gave her cupcake a hug. Not kidding. She just adores it in all its cuteness glory.

kamnco_cupcakes_hoh_3

Gah. I just want to seriously lick them. Don’t they look so tasty?! And you guys, seriously, every time I look at my House of Hepworths cupcake, I start beaming from ear to ear. It’s my logo! On a matching cupcake. Oh. Em. Geeeee. Adorable.

kamnco_cupcakes_hoh_6

I don’t know how Ela makes them. I honestly can’t figure out what the frosting and chocolate drizzle are made from. They are so REAL looking. I mean, so real my son tried to gab one and eat it before I could belt out that they are fake. He was sure surprised!

kamnco_cupcakes_hoh_7

I’m going to keep these up year round, but wouldn’t a set of them be THE CUTEST THING EVER hanging on a Christmas tree? OMG, I can see it now – a cupcake Christmas tree. Just order a dozen or so of them and create a cupcake tree.

So, now that you’ve seen mine, are you dying to know how to get your own? Well, you are in luck my friends because Ela has a shop online called KamNCo. where she sells all these adorable cupcakes! And even better, YOU get to custom order them in any color you’d like!

Oh, and don’t stop at putting your name on your cupcake. Get yourself a Twilight cupcake! Hey, you know you love it. So just admit that you went to the midnight showing last night. Don’t be embarrassed. We all love Edward Cullen. ;)

She’ll even throw a photo on your cupcake. Or a picture of your dog. Or Pokemon. Oh, how about a Narwhal? That would be flippin’ awesome. Or Buddy the Elf. Double bonus point just for being the best Elf ever. Whatever floats your boat.

KamNCo wants to spread Christmas Cheer to you by offering you a chance to win your very own set of 4 mini cupcakes! Cause you know,
“The best way to spread Christmas Cheer is by singing loud for all to hear… and giving away cute sets of faux mini cupcakes.”
That is exactly what Buddy the Elf said. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. And, why yes, I did watch Elf today. How did you know?

BUT, before I send you on your Merry way to enter this amazeballz giveaway, I would be cheating you of pure awesomeness if I didn’t share with you her blog. And I hate cheating my readers, so count this as an early Christmas present. My gift to you is a link to her blog. Merry Christmas. (Now go buy a set of cute cupcakes for your tree!).

And you can find her on facebook and twitter too.

And now for the giveaway…

TWO winners will each receive a set of 4 mini cupcake ornaments. The winners will get to choose all the fixin’s on each of their custom cupcakes. And they will look kinda like mine (but you should probably change the names ’cause that would just be plain weird for you to have our names on your tree).
