DESIGN BY OCCASION CELEBRATES ITS 3-YEAR BLOGIVERSARY {AND GIVEAWAY}!

DESIGN BY OCCASION CELEBRATES ITS 3-YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!

DESIGN BY OCCASION CELEBRATES ITS 3 YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!

October 1st marked the 3-year anniversary of Design by Occasions’ blog; ‘The Noted’. I started on October 1, 2013 – obsessed with pretty things, beautiful tablescapes, stunning interiors & decor, trending fashion, and delicious food & beverage recipes. I created a lifestyle blog as a destination for ideas and inspiration and this year I wanted to incorporate even more of my own content and I hope to increase that just a bit more. There are days when I find myself so inspired, that I’ve filled my notebooks with ideas and projects – wishing I could create unique content each and everyday but I have to balance with designing new Design by Occasion greeting cards and fulfilling orders. I do what I can and love what I do and appreciate those of you who visit the blog, whether it’s all the time or once in awhile. It’s a wonderful compliment for me to especially know that you visit from the vast and beautiful blogs out there!

So what’s in store for the blog in the coming months? Well, I will continue to explore the topics I love and dedicate the blog to home decor, styling with a focus on entertaining.  Additionally, I will be giving my site a small face lift. Some updates will occur on the backend (a few tech updates) – mostly subtle changes to improve the site navigation.

Now for the exciting part!! In honor of my 3-year blogiversary, I’m celebrating with a GIVEAWAY and today’s the day where you can enter to win my curated gift box! A token of thanks from me to you is a beautifully curated box filled with some of my favorite things (a little bit of home decor, entertaining essentials and stationery) and of course in my favorite colors! I LOVE anything gold and especially gold-foil.

  • (1) Voluspa Candle, 3 oz
  • (1) Metallic Gold Leaves Mug
  • (1) Gold Acorn decor figurine
