Celebrating 4 years with Kid's Delight Potluck Party! and Giveaways

>>  Sunday, September 16, 2012

As always I missed out celebrating the blog birthday this year as well. Though I had planned on hosting  the event for Kid's Delight Potluck Party, it still matters that I missed out on the exact date. Anyway nothing wrong in doing this couple of weeks later right.

When I thought of this blog four years back, I thought of many ways I wanted this space to cater. I wanted it to be a place where moms will come to check out ideas for their kid's everyday meal. Then for Diabetes information and diet. Like these there were so many that I wanted to explore. Basically it satisfies my Vegetarian diet.

The blog actually took off last year when I had started the Blogging Marathon. I must say the BM keeps me and my blog very much live and connected to my BM group and the blogging community. I have not been so regular with Cooking 4 all Seasons, which I am trying so hard to get back to track.

Enough of my chattering, coming to the celebration part, there is no celebration without gifts and giveaways. I wanted to do something different from the usual thing and so I reached out to my multi-talented BM friends. I have asked them to make something special for the gifts. I am yet to get the entire detail, so it's going to be a surprise.

Guidelines for the event:

From now until Oct 15th, you are welcome to join me for the celebration with a party for the kids.

The entries have to be Vegetarian. (Eggs are allowed only in baked dishes)

Multiple entries are accepted.

I am not accepting entries from archive as I want us to think new ideas..:) But then if you have something that's very important like a list of items for a party etc, let me know.

Finally link back to the event's Announcement page or this page. If you can use the logo, it will be great.

For the giveaway only those who have left comments will be considered.

About the Give aways:

Surprise Gift hampers made by the bloggers:

I will be announcing the details of the Surprise gift hamper once the give-away closes. The give-away closes on 25th September 2012. 

Aren't you excited about getting handmade and pretty stuff from your blogger friends? 

If you win, you will be getting beautiful handicrafts and decorated art pieces personally worked by these talented bloggers

This is open only for readers in India.

For Readers from other countries, I have a surprise cookbook as gift.
