I'm out on vacation this week, so I can think of no better time to introduce you to our new & incredible team of contributing writers. These talented women will be adding a fresh perspective to Birthday Girl by offering tutorials, recipes, printables and party ideas. They come from a variety of backgrounds and will collectively be providing unique & creative ideas for your birthday celebrations and beyond. Please give them a warm welcome and watch for their posts throughout the week and in the months ahead... I'm so very happy to have them on my team.

The Paiges of Style blog is where everything in Paige's life collides and you can find inspiration for parties, interiors, kids and all things stylish.
