Simple Gatherings Progressive Party & Giveaways!

Simple Gatherings Progressive Party & Giveaways!

What an exciting day! My new book, Simple Gatherings, has been released into the world. If you do not have your copy, you can grab one today through Amazon or Barnes & Noble or ask about it at your local bookstore!

I hope Simple Gatherings will be an encouragement to all of us to be more confident and intentional about opening our homes. Now more than ever, I think we all crave a safe and welcoming place to gather for genuine community.

Five Giveaways!

Today we are celebrating the launch of Simple Gatherings with a “Progressive Party.” Five lovely friends have invited us to gather on their blog for a fun celebratory giveaway (all five unique giveaway sets are sponsored by my AMAZING publishing team at Harvest House!).

You guys, every single prize is my favorite. Each one is so versatile for hosting! You can enter all five giveaways and possibly even win more than one set of prizes! The sources are all listed in the scrolling bar at the bottom of this page.

***At the bottom of this post you’ll find source links for the prizes.

What is Simple Gatherings?

Inside the book you’ll find lots of tips, ideas, photos and inspiration for creating an inviting atmosphere and hosting a memorable gathering.

Yet, Simple Gatherings is about letting go of the stress and expectation of hosting a Pinterest-perfect party.

Simple Gatherings encourages you to find more joy in your own style of preparing for and welcoming guests into your home.

In addition to getting to know each of our hostesses and entering the gorgeous giveaways today, you’ll have the opportunity to take a fun hostess personality quiz through any of the host blogs. Our hostesses will share their style and you should find some fun conversations in the comments of each blog, so I hope you’ll join in!

So, without further delay, below is the list of the five wonderful hostesses who offered to host our launch parties. Click through to visit each and enter the giveaways. I’m so thankful for these ladies and their generous hospitality. 

You’ll find a link to each giveaway at every stop along the way, so don’t worry if you began visiting the party on another blog. You can visit and enter giveaways in ANY order, but don’t miss a single stop!

Thank you for gathering to celebrate with me, sweet friends.

I’m grateful to every single one of you (readers and bloggers alike) for the welcoming and supportive community you have created for all of us online!

Simple Gatherings Launch Party!! (you’re invited & can you help?)

Simple Gatherings Launch Party!! (you're invited & can you help?)

Hey friends! This Tuesday is the official launch party on The Inspired Room for my new book Simple Gatherings! I’m gathering friends far and near to help celebrate launch day! You are invited!

The party starts right here on the blog this Tuesday. From here we’ll head off to celebrate and enter giveaways on five lovely blogs.

But like the day before any fun party, there are a few things that still need to get done.

Would you like to help me with some of the party preparations and book launch promotion? Your support would mean SO much me, friend. If you’d like to help me with this book launch, scroll down for details.

I’m SO excited for everyone to get this book (and if you PREORDER TODAY ONLY there is still time to get my entire EBOOK BUNDLE FOR FREE!).

Just pre-order at Amazon or Barnes & Noble today, then fill out the form here to get all 4 of my e-books for  free!

Simple Gatherings offers tips for hosting a memorable gathering for friends and family. But don’t worry. You can check perfection and intimidation at the door because this book isn’t about hosting a Pinterest-worthy party.

  • Simple Gatherings is about creating an experience that will draw people together.
  • From preparing your home and menu to setting the atmosphere and table, you’ll find simple tips for hosting any event.
  • Learn how to help guests feel welcome and comfortable in your home.
  • Discover ways to spark connection and conversation so everyone feels at ease (including yourself as a hostess!).
  • Find featured gathering ideas, creative activities, and special touches to make gatherings memorable!

Simple Gatherings Launch Party!! (you're invited & can you help?)

If you would like to help with the book launch preparation and promotion, yay! Thank you!

Here are a few things I could use help with:

1) Would you post a photo of the Simple Gatherings book (you can take your own image, or use one of my photos!) on your social media? That would help get the word out that the book is available! You can share on Facebook or Instagram or a blog.

Here is another fun way to inspire others and help promote the book:

Post an image on social media to show or represent a simple gathering in your own home!

How fun will it be to see everyone’s home and the special touches you bring to the table?

Show us ….
Your gatherings!
Your table settings!
Your invitations!
Your place cards!
Your centerpieces!
Your conversation areas.
Your recipes!
Your welcoming front porch!
Your game nights!
Your ideas are all welcome.

If you share on Instagram, use the hashtag #simplegatherings and tag me @theinspiredroom so I can see it. You can tag my Facebook page if you post on Facebook!

I will be hosting fun giveaways soon for people who post about the book. Be sure to use the hashtag and tag me if you share on social media! So go ahead and start sharing photos and stay tuned for the giveaways :).

And feel free to come share your home and gatherings anytime on our community site Home Love Stories!

***Here’s a sweet and inspiring Simple Gathering post on Sasha Brodeur’s blog Lemonade Makin’ Mama!

2) If you have the book and enjoy it, I would sure appreciate your support in leaving a review on Amazon Tuesday.

3) Tuesday is the virtual Progressive Launch Party with some beautiful giveaways, starting here on The Inspired Room! There will be FIVE dreamy giveaways. Five bloggers are helping me to host giveaways, so it’s going to be really fun.

I’d love for you to enter the giveaways and help spread the word about the virtual launch party.

OK, friends! Thanks for being excited about this launch and for your support.

Meanwhile, I would LOVE to hear if you are planning any gatherings in your home during this season?

Leave me a comment! Let’s chat.
