We have gotten some truly stellar folks to join us in our search for the best gifts of 2011 and each week, we’ll be featuring one of them right here on the Gift Rap Blog.

So, to kick it off we’re so happy to have the fabulous ladies from Party Bluprints as partners! Dawn Sandomeno and Elizabeth Mascali have always had a knack for creating memorable celebrations on a budget and began sharing their wisdom with the world in 2007 when they launched Party Bluprints Blog. They brought their visions to coffee tables across the globe when they published their 1st book “Plan to Party”.

When I asked Dawn and Elizabeth about the mission of Party Bluprints, they said, “We believe with all our hearts that “There’s no place like home for a party” and we want to make hosting them simple and enjoyable for real people, on real budget, who live a real life – like us!”

We can’t think of a better duo to help us identify the finalists for this year’s Giftee Awards than two women who know what makes an occasion special. But, why are they excited to be a part of our exclusive panel? “Because we can’t wait to discover a host of great new gift ideas!”

If you’re planning a party, definitely stop by Party Bluprints for inspiration, instructions and a community of amazing entertainers who you’ll be happy to your call friends!
