I am already a follower of birthday girl and just became one of Kate Landers. I adore her Madeline party (because I have my very own 3 year old Madeline.) I'm currently planning a construction party for my soon to be 2 year old son so I would also love to see what she'd have in mind for it! Thanks!!

Petite Marie (May 17, 2010 at 12:51 PM)  

I already followed Birthday Girl...and just became a follower of Kate Landers. My daughter will be 2 next month - though I'm planning a Lilo & Stitch party for June. It would be awesome to get her input on trying to make this as non-commercial as possible!!!

I'm technically a new Birthday Girl follow although I have it on my favorites and check it every day. I love it. I just started to follow Kate Landers Events today and can't wait to catch up on all her posts! The birthday party theme I would chose would be Alice in Wonderland. I think it's fun and whimsical and fell in love with the movie.

I am a new follower of your blog and Kate's. I just came across your blogs today from a I am a mother to three little girls and am so excited to find all of these beautiful birthday ideas. I would love to win a "Violet Themed" party for my daughter named Violet who will turn ONE on June 15th. (We are planning the party for the 19th of June but could be persuaded to delay it until the 26th if it would be easier to get our package together if we were to win!)
Rachel (Mommy to Rose 5, Pearl 3 and Violet almost 1!)

Lindsey (May 18, 2010 at 12:57 PM)  

I am a relatively new reader, but I love everything I see! My almost 4 year old daughter has been asking for a polka dot birthday (whatever happened to Cinderella and the like?), so that is the party I would have.

My blog is:

Amber H. (May 18, 2010 at 1:40 PM)  

I've been a follower of Kate Landers for a while, and just today became a follower of birthday girl!

I've got two daughters, and my youngest one already had her birthday party, but my oldest's birthday is in November the day before Thanksgiving, so we have to probably wait until AFTER Thanksgiving to have her actual party, and she'll be five this year.

I think it would be super fun to do a fairy party or something similar but of course with a fall theme, since her birthday is in late fall after all. She loves the outdoors and it would be perfect.

The Jackson Family (May 18, 2010 at 1:42 PM)  

I'm a new follower and so excited about this giveaway! I am going to be throwing a baby shower for twins and am looking for a new approach! I am also a new follower of Kate Landers!

I have been a HUGE fan of Kate's Madeline party since I have a Madeline of my own. She will turn 1 in August & we'd like to have a "chick" bday party for her. My closest girlfriends planned a chick "about to hatch" shower for me that I had to miss due to being put on bedrest in hospital so I'd like to carry through the special theme for her first bday!

Chad and Whitney (May 22, 2010 at 12:33 PM)

Not sure if you do adult themes or not, he is afterall my eldest son. LOL

delighted (May 23, 2010 at 1:49 PM)  

i became a folower of kate landers yesterday while looking at fab birthday party ideas.
i love a good theme. i actually would leave the theme up to kate to decide on. the party would be for my 13 going on 14 year old daughter who hasn't had a huge birthday party in years, because her birthday is after school is over for the year. this year we could take the party in town to the park & invite all of her friends. what a cool way to enter high school. thank for this giveaway!
