Custom Banners for Your Next Occasion from Uniquely Me Designs {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Kelly!}

While I may find myself slacking on some holiday preparations for my kids (Oh, you're supposed to wear green to school for St. Patrick's Day... which is tomorrow?), one occasion that I've always made a point to step it up for is their birthday. It's the day you were born; let's celebrate!

Over the years we've held parties with a variety of themes, among them monkeys, rock star, superhero, Elmo and more. And while there have surely been details that have gone unnoticed, one aspect that always receives comments is the decor. It doesn't matter if I've gone all out or have kept things simple, I've found that having one stand-out decoration is what gets people talking.

Which is why I love the idea of including a handmade, one-of-a-kind, stylishly modern custom banner from Uniquely Me Designs in all of my upcoming festivities.

Not just for birthdays, Uniquely Me Designs can create a custom banner for your upcoming event, no matter what it may be. Whether a wedding, baby shower, bridal shower, christening or more is in your future, the talented owners of Uniquely Me Designs can bring together the colors and theme of your occasion into a banner that you will be proud to display.

Looking for something for your 4-year-old's party? For your co-worker's retirement? To surprise Mom for Mother's Day? Or how about an absolutely gorgeous Thank You Banner to use as a stunning photo card to send out to guests after attending your wedding? I love that the options are endless and simply beautiful!

With my daughters' birthdays not for quite a few months, we don't have themes picked out for this year yet. Therefore, I left my banner creativity up to the experts and had Uniquely Me Designs create one that could be used for both girls at their parties for quite some time to come.

When it arrived, I was happy to have been surprised — the result was perfect!

As I have previously purchased and used generic Happy Birthday banners from a party store, the contrast of the handcrafted and handmade look that this banner provides is just so much nicer. Each letter (which has a 3D effect on the card) is crisp and clean and the combination of the colors, patterns and shapes comes together in such an appealing way.

I was happy to see that even the back of this banner looks well-made and attractive, as it could then be hung across a doorway or hallway without me thinking that the reverse side wouldn't be something I would want seen.

I especially LOVE how Uniquely Me Designs included a separate banner with each of my girls' names on it, as they make it possible for me to pull this out at each birthday for a personalized and special look.

There isn't anything left to ask for with a custom banner from Uniquely Me Designs! By being able to match to your specific theme, your guests will be amazed to see the colors or characters from the party displayed. Or, for an especially wonderful twist to a first birthday, the 12 Month Photo Banners are a decoration that double as a pictorial showcase to treasure!

With affordable prices for all of their custom banners ($20 - $28), Uniquely Me Designs can provide the high quality, tailor-made touch that will leave your next occasion looking anything but ordinary. Due to the ever-changing selection offered in their Etsy shop, you'll want to keep checking back to see what might show up next and serve as the inspiration that you need to plan your next party.

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will be ready to wow their guests for their next shindig as well, because...

One lucky person will win their choice of banner
from Uniquely Me Designs!
