When I was first deciding how I wanted to celebrate Twin Stripe’s third birthday, I knew I wanted to get a few of my blogging friends involved since the community has played such a major roll in my growth and love of blogging. I wanted to give them something special to help celebrate, so I put together a birthday-in-a-box for each of them.

A birthday-in-a-box makes the perfect festive gift for a friend or family member you can’t celebrate with in person. You could also put together a package for other holidays like Christmas or Valentine’s Day and other special occasions. Read on for tips to put together a memorable celebration-in-a-box.
1. Start with a confetti base, it makes your gift seem instantly fun and festive. My favorite sources for confetti are The Flair Exchange and The Confetti Bar. You can also make your DIY confetti using this tutorial from Feast + West.
2. Next, pick up a few traditional items, like party horns and candles for a birthday or a pretty ornament and garland for Christmas. These staples will bring your entire box together.
3. Last, select an unexpected item or two like plastic party animals or mini honeycombs for a bit of magic. It’s unexpected flourishes that will really make the gift memorable.
4. Put your goodies in a small box or envelope along with a note about your party-in-a-box and ship it off to the lucky recipient.
Don’t miss your chance to enter to win a birthday-in-a-box and some of my favorite things! I hope you all are having a wonderful week!
