Don't forget to enter the last weekly giveaway of 2012 + two fun finds

The last giveaway of 2012 ends on Monday and I'll be using Tuesdays in December to bring you more seasonal inspiration for your weddings and parties. I cannot wait to start making each week a bit more festive on my blog. But, don't worry, giveaways will resume next year - but they will be a bit less frequent and even higher quality. I'm loving the ability to post more inspiration for you this month and have a feeling I will want to keep it that way in the new year as well.

From now through the end of the day Monday, you can enter to win 16 Glitter Galore Placecard Holders {perfect for the dessert bar} along with the matching glitter Cake Knife and Server Set from Gracious Bridal. Contest ends on Monday December 3rd, 2012 at 11:59pm EST. PS: the giveaways are now open to ALL my readers!!! So hurry up and enter to see if you will be the last lucky winner of 2012.

Not only are the holidays upon us, but it's also that time of year when Bride Tide is looking for nominations of your favorite wedding blogs. I would be beyond honored if you considered Brenda's Wedding Blog as one of your favorites for inclusion in the next edition of the Top 100 Wedding Blogs. I am thrilled to have made it the past 3 years in a row.

I'm sure many of you have heard of Peggy Porchen, right? The amazingly talented baker from London? Well, she has a brand new book that is now available in the US called Boutique Baking: Delectable Cakes, Cupcakes and Teatime Treats. It's on my wish list for sure as her designs are breathtaking.

I am loving these Free Printable Christmas Chalkboards from Nest of Posies. There are actually 5 to choose from. Not sure which one I like the most - how about you?
