East Coast V West Coast Tablescape Challenge News Flash:)

The Children's Party Network's First Team Challenge is in full swing and it is getting so close to SHOWTIME!
Fo those of you that are tardy to the party, here is a quick recap: The Children's Party Network was launched about 6 weeks ago. We {Natalie & I} decided an East Coast V West Coast Tablescape Challenge would be a fun and novel way to break the party girl ice and work together in the name of creative party styling. Team West is headed by Natalie, {Little Shindigs Events and President of the CPN} and Team East is chaired by little ol' me {Vice Pug of the CPN}. Each team has about 25 members which consist of party planners, graphic designers, partyware designers, bloggers, bakers and party loving Mamas. The teams were both given a theme for the challenge-Black and White Children's New Year's Eve Party was chosen..SO...Team East and Team West have been secretly plotting, planning, scheming and designing killer tablescapes. Once completed, tablescapes will be photographed and showcased to the world to see who will be crowned tablescape champion. {note: Team East is taking this. Totally}

Natalie and I then decided it would be amazing to be able to have someone deserving benefit from everyone's hard work. We will be auctioning off the completed tablescapes and all net proceeds will be donated to Project Night Night. Project Night Night is a charitable organization that gives a tote, blanket, book and teddy bear to kids in homeless shelters. We could not think of a more fitting cause:) That's the beauty of the challenge in a glittery nutshell..

Now, even more seriously exciting news!
