Best of the Weekend Party + A Fabulous New Host!

Best of the Weekend Party at littlemisscelebration.comWelcome to Best of the Weekend and do we have a happy announcement!  Claire, Lisa, Nichi and I are over the moon to welcome a brand new host, starting tonight! Please join us in a big welcome to our friend, Deb, from Cooking on the Front Burner! If you don’t know Deb, you will love her as much as we do! Not only does she share amazing recipes and incredible photography, Deb is just a wonderful and lovely person. We’ve even got a new, brighter party button – how do you like our little party mascot? :) (Thanks, Claire!) Let’s kick off the weekend and welcome Deb with one rockin’ party!

When you link up to Best of the Weekend, your posts will be be seen on all FIVE of our blogs. Our party board on Pinterest is huge and we’ll be pinning your fantastic projects and recipes, plus tweeting and sharing as many of your posts as we can for lots of added exposure. As always, to my wonderful non-blogging friends – just click on any picture in the link-up and it will take you straight to the blog of the talented person who so generously shared with us!

Each week, Claire, Lisa, Nichi, Deb and I will each feature the most clicked link and our favorites, so be sure to stop by all three of our blogs to see if you were featured! Visit Claire here, Lisa here, Deb here, and Nichi here!

Some of our best blogging buddies keep the party going all weekend long – hope you’ll join me at these parties tomorrow!

Spotlight and drum roll for our features, please! Our most clicked link was…Shannon’s perfect summer salad!

Shannon, Jenny, ChiWei and Anne, thank you so much for sharing your fabulous posts with us! You are welcome to grab a button from the sidebar! Thanks to everyone who partied with us last week – loved seeing, pinning and sharing your posts!

Please read the guidelines before linking up. Thanks in advance for being awesome like that:

  1. Please follow the five party hosts in some capacity {Blog, Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter, G+, etc}. We work super hard to make this party awesome and to make sure that you are all pinned every week too! If you have time to add a link back or add our party button to your post (button on the sidebar!) we will, of course gush all over you . If you just don’t have that kind of time, please just mention the party on some form of social media. Cool? Thanks.
  2. Please make sure whatever you link is YOUR work and, please, no giveaways, link parties, or anything you are selling. Also, feel free to link an older post but please don’t link the same post within a 3 month period
  3. Lastly, and we are big sticklers about this (sorry, but there you have it), please DO take a second to “PAY IT FORWARD” and click on the link right before you and say something nice. It only takes a second to encourage someone else and I think we ALL know how great it is to get a sweet comment on something we worked on. It just puts a little spring in your step, so please share the love.
  4. LEGAL STUFF:  By linking up, you are granting the party hosts permission to promote you and an image from your site in a featured post or on social media.

Before we get all rowdy :), I have two fantastic giveaways going on! Grab your chance to win a brand new gas grill but hurry – it ends soon!! We’re also celebrating the blogiversary of my friend Samantha from Five Heart Home with a $400 Amazon gift card.
