Welcome to the THIRD addition of Thursdays are YOUR Days at 52 Mantels! Today's party is sponsored by Village Cupcakes and includes an awesome giveaway!! 


Got a special occasion coming up?? Then you'll want to stick around for this giveaway!

Village Cupcakes is a specialty bakery that create one-of-a-kind, custom items for their customers. And, the owner, Ashley, has perfected the art of the edible cupcake topper, which she sells at her etsy shop. The custom fondant toppers are made to be shipped, so this giveaway is open to anyone in the continental USA! 

The winner of this giveaway will receive a $25 gift certificate to be used at Village Cupcake's etsy shop on custom fondant cupcake toppers, custom paper cupcake toppers or custom paper invitations. And, if you happen to live in the Dallas, Texas area, you can also use the $25 on fresh baked goods! How sweet is that?! 

As someone who loves to throw a party on a budget, I adore the concept of a beautiful cupcake topper. Why? Because, I can save money by making my own cupcakes and then give them a professional look by poppin' a cute, custom topper on. Stylish and economical! (I love fooling my party guests into thinking I'm super-duper talented!)

Want to see some cute creations by Village Cupcakes? Awesome! I want to show you a few of my favorite cupcake toppers.

Aren't these carnival toppers the cutest?! 

These are my most favorite EVER. Why? Because, Ashley just happens to be one of my dearest friends and she (with 5 other of my dearest friends) hosted a baby shower for me a year ago and these cuties were enjoyed by all the guests! Aren't they perfect?? I love the chocolate birds and the sweet flowers. On a side note, they were delicious, too. Sometimes, you really can have it all! 

Here are some super cute boy-themed cupcake toppers! Don't you love the superhero cake and cupcakes??

And, let's not forget the girls in our lives! Look at those cute, pink soccer balls!!

Don't have a party on your horizon? Let Village Cupcakes create something sweet for your Valentine!! 

Now, who's ready to enter this awesome giveaway?! Just follow the instructions below!! Good luck and if you win, please let me know what toppers or treats you choose!
