I’m so excited to share this news with you. Today, we’re launching a contest for my new book Celebrations. Basically, I want you to share a story about your favorite celebration with me through either Facebook, Twitter or right here on this blog entry (in the comments below).
The official description with all the details of the contest is below. Two winners are going to receive the complete collection of my books, wrapped in my signature style. Tell me your stories and enter today. If you’re going to be in New York City, don’t forget to check out my book discussion tonight with Nina Garcia. Feel free to bring your cameras–you know how much I love to take pictures. We’ll be at the Barnes & Noble on 86th and Lexington at 7pm!
CELEBRATIONS CONTEST DESCRIPTION
Tell Us All About Your Favorite Celebration For A Chance To Win!
Preston Bailey’s newest book, Celebrations, showcases some of Preston’s favorite celebrations over the course of his 30-year career. Barnes and Noble stores in New York City will be celebrating the launch of Preston’s new book by decorating several different store windows in Preston Bailey’s signature style.
You can check out the windows in the Barnes and Noble Union Square (33 East 17th Street, New York, NY 10003) and Fifth Avenue (555 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY 10017) locations. Preston will also be conducting a book signing today, December 8th, hosted by Nina Garcia, at the Upper East Side Barnes & Noble (150 East 86th Street, New York, NY 10028). Come out and get your book signed!
Now, we want to hear from you about your favorite celebration, and what made it so special. Was it your 21st birthday when a stranger popped out of your birthday cake? Or, maybe it was the time you turned 40 and were serenaded with your favorite song? Perhaps it was the time you celebrated your one-year wedding anniversary by staying inside and eating take-out with your lovely spouse….
Tell us all about your favorite celebration, and you will be eligible to win the entire collection of Preston Bailey’s books (Celebrations, Inspirations, Fantasy Weddings and Design for Entertaining), signed and wrapped in Preston’s signature style. The approximate retail value of this prize is Two Hundred Fifty Dollars ($250). We will be responsible for sending the prize to you by a shipping (or other delivery) method determined by us in our sole discretion.
