Certainly Chic Giveaway

Giveaway Photo2
Certainly Chic started as a small idea after my own wedding in March 2008. As I was planning my own wedding, I began to create items that fit certain details that I wanted and couldn't find in stores. I had several brides contacting me after my wedding asking me to recreate items for them. I really enjoyed it and so I decided to branch out and make something of it!

I am currently a full time Title I teacher in Washington, DC. That "real" job certainly has its challenges and stresses so I love being able to come home and let the creative juices flow into something beautiful! Keep your eyes on my shop for some new items and new ideas coming in late spring/early summer! :)

I am giving away a hand-painted parasol in your choice of color and saying. I have done everything from "Just Married", "I Do", and "Thank You" to "Birthday Girl" and initials. Possibilities are endless!

Hello hello! I have to say my favorite item in Certainly Chic's shop is the set of "Just Married" hand painted umbrellas - they are so cinematic, I can just imagine the story to go with :)

And, I would put "Paper Leaves" on the parasol, if I got so lucky!

My favorite is the Out Of Town (OOT) Guest Box Tags (20). The parasols are awesome too. I'd love to win one for my teenage daughter's upcoming birthday party.

I like the waterproof umbrellas, since they would be more useful to me. I'm an outdoorsy person :)

I love the rainproof umbrella signs. It rained the day I took e-pics and the umbrellas gave the pics a nice touch.

Leah said...

If (when LOL) I win... I will be totally selfish and put my own monogram on there lWa hahaha! I think it would be darling to take to an outdoor symphony or the pops concerts in the summer. I would LOVE to have a lavendar one. Soo cute, preppy and chic!

Lizzie said...

My favorite item for the etsy shop is the custom aisle runner.

If I won a parasol, I would put 'Thank You' on it.

I've loved parasols since I was a little girl (had my own lacey frilly white one) and while I would kill to have this all to myself, I'd want to share the love and joy with my little girl..so I would love some light floral pattern around the edge and that way we can use it for photos and play and share it together :)

Megan said...

I love the isle and table runners, and will probably be purchasing them from you in the near future :)

Keeping my fingers crossed for eh beautiful parasol <3

I could def. use the "monogram design" because I am just not talented like that at all!

Fran said...

I would put "thank you" on the parasol so we could use it for pictures! :)

Heather said...

I like the hand painted parasol! =)

Heather said...

If I won the parasol, I would have it say "Just Married" and give it to my sister for her wedding day as I know she would really love to have it.

Heather said...

I tweeted! I'd really love to win this for my sister!

Or actually, you know what I would might like painted on the parasol if it was possible...a monogram! That would be beautiful!

If I won, I would have my daughter's initials painted on the parasol. She's due 4/8 and that would be SUCH a cute decoration in her room!
