I hope you are as excited about next week as I am. The contributors are amazing, I just know you are going to adore their work.

Before you meet them and drool over the beautiful designs, may I introduce our challenge judges… Each of these amazing ladies will be viewing the challenge designs, commenting on what they love and choosing their favorite. Our winner will receive a $50 Etsy gift card + a years subscription to Ready Made!

I asked each judge to share with you what is inspiring them this fall…

Jenn from Hostess with the Mostess This is a surprisingly difficult question to answer because I honestly feel like I stumble on new inspiration every day – especially when readers submit their parties. If I had to narrow it down though, I’d have to say designer gift wrap is a huge source of inspiration right now – like gorgeous designs from Smock Paper and Elum, and even this fabulous vintage-style superhero paper for a cool kids party. It’s amazing how a fabulous pattern can suddenly inspire and entire party!

Courtney from Joyful Events Really, everything about fall inspires me. The leaves, the textures, the chill, the colors. This year, however, I bought a pumpkin spice candle early and the smell floating through my house instantly makes me happy and inspired to start thinking about fall crafting and decorating.

Jordan Ferney from oh happy day This vintage cabbage rose dress I bought. Still trying to lose the baby weight so I can fit into it.

Erin McDonald from Dandelion and Grey This Fall I am inspired by Family-Style Dining. I love the way it brings everyone together! I’m imagining big platters of delicious fall foods, fragrant wine & soft candlelight. This idea can inspire anything from a simple, intimate dinner party to a large wedding or event. I can’t wait to throw my first Family-Style dinner of the season!

Aren’t these judges amazing? You are each a huge inspiration for me, Thank you!

blessings.
