The Best Party Blogs

We are among friends here, right? So can I be bluntly honest? Well, I don't normally enter the Blog in any competitions or voting poles - Let's face it, it takes a lot of energy and time to keep reminding people to vote. Plus, it can be seen as a popularity contest and it's NOT usually a measure of talent nor how nice a person you are.....BUT (and it's a big but here) we have been nominated by you, our readers to the Top 25 Party Planning Blogs on Circle of Moms ; and this means you must think Bird's Party Blog is worthy to be on that list among such talented party people and friends !
