Weekend Wrap Up Party — and “You’re So Invited” Party Planning Book Giveaway!

Welcome to the Weekend Wrap UP Party!!!

Happy Friday!  I am SO excited to introduce you to
Cheryl from CherylStyle.com.

Cheryl shows you new ways to decorate using repurposed items from around the house, with unique twists that will wow guests the moment they arrive.

From mixing and matching dishes to putting together an outfit from the basics already in your closet, her ideas are fresh and simple, and easy for anyone to put to use.

 An author, speaker, and CEO of leading lifestyle media company CherylStyle, she is first and foremost a mother, wife and friend who is there when you need her with style tips and tricks for your next great gathering.

 On Cheryl’s Website, CherylStyle, learn everything you need to plan fabulous celebrations ranging from Thanksgiving to a 50th birthday to a child’s pajama party.

Her awesome book, 

You’re So Invited: Panic Less, Play More, and Get Your Party On! comes out May 29, 2012.

And you can be one of the first to have it — free!

And it’s a signed copy too!!

 What makes Cheryl’s style fun is that she breaks the rules for “proper” entertaining.

You’ll be able to read more about it in You’re So Invited: Panic Less, Play More and Get Your Party On, (only a couple weeks away from being published!).

Cheryl’s website is so easy to navigate and allows you to window shop her six categories of gather, eat, sip, gussy-up, create and nest, or just do a simple search to find whatever you need.

If you’re looking for what’s hot, sign up for our weekly Cheryl’s Faves—it’s free, and it doesn’t get any better than free!

I also invite you to keep up with what’s happening her world via Tout and Pinterest, where you can get an inside peek.

And finally …

Cheryl is giving away a copy of her new book to one lucky TT&J reader!

Here’s the scoop from CherylStyle.com:

From a rural Missouri childhood decorating tables with cherry-tree branches, to her current and much-anticipated gatherings that always include a “cherry on the top” surprise for her guests, Cheryl encourages others to break the rules of proper entertaining.

Through Cheryl’s signature wit and creativity, You’re So Invited shares this fresh approach to planning your next—or maybe your first!—party without fretting or fussing, so you can relax and have fun with your guests.

An inspiring book for novice and experienced entertainers alike, You’re So Invited features ten beautifully photographed parties—from a chic surprise birthday to an irreverent going-away roast to an indulgent tween spa party. Every page is loaded with playful ideas that will get you thinking outside the box for your next gathering, big or small.

Make sure you stop by CherylStyle on Facebook and follow along and/or leave a comment with a big TT&J hello.
