Don’t forget to come by Friday for

The Inspired Room blog’s 100th post extravaganza

and satellite holiday party

with the French-inspired boutique The Blissful!

What Is It: A Big Thank You for hanging out at The Inspired Room!

When Is It: Friday November 2, 2007 – Saturday November 3, 2007

Where Is It: Here at The Inspired Room blog (it is a virtual party!)

What Do I Bring: Please bring a favorite hors d’oeuvre

or hostess gift idea for our comments

All guests who bring an idea Friday-Saturday

will be entered into the 100th post giveaway!

P.S. If you would like to be a BFF, all you have to do is invite friends to join you at the party by an invitation on your blog (just give them the dates and link, no need to get fancy!)! You’ll get bonus entries in the main drawing AND be entered into the BFF drawing! Let me know here if you are attempting BFF status. Few will attempt it, but the reward will be tasty for the lucky winner! No pressure, I’ll still like you if you don’t attempt BFF status.

Party begins on Friday! Winners will be announced Monday!

In the meantime, don’t miss another exciting party and awesome giveaway happening now over at My Melange!

    I’ll be there with bells on. Just an expression ladies!! On second thought maybe I will just add some bells to whatever I am wearing and call it an outfit. Anyway, I will try to remind people on my post tomorrow, just to get even more BFF points

  26. My Melange

    I have a delish and easy hors d’oeuvre idea. Take belgian endive, cut the end off and separate the individual leaves. Lay them down on a platter- they will be used like little *boats*. Inside each leaf crumble some roquefort(since it is a french party) and slighty toasted walnuts. Sprinkle course salt and pepper, than drizzle the entire platter with extra virgin olive oil! Voila! No silverware needed!

    Have a great par-tay!
