The Uncommon Life

Backyard Party Pinterest Contest

June 22, 2012

Summer is finally here and we can’t wait for backyard barbecues and picnics in the park. In fact, we have been Pinning about it all winter and now want to see your summer inspiration boards!

One lucky winner Pinner will receive an UncommonGoods gift card to furnish their summer party.

Leave the link to your inspirational Backyard Party board in the comments below and/or on the original pin in our Summer Time board and you’ll be entered to win.

We’ll announce the winner on July 6. How much that person wins is up to you. For every 50 entries we see, we’ll add $50 to the grand prize, up to a total of $250. So after you share your board with us, be sure to tell your friends and family to enter too!

Follow us on Pinterest for more updates, and leave a link to your profile in the comments. We follow back!

Good luck and happy pinning. We can’t wait to see your brilliant boards!

    Not completely sure I did this right. Were all of the pins suppose to be from the UncommonGoods website or just the ones that said UncommonGoods? Also, I clicked on the link above for “More Information” but it took me to a page with less information lol… so if there is anywhere else besides this page with more details please point me in the right direction!

    Here’s what I came up with: http://pinterest.com/akstout18/uncommongoods-backyard-party/
