Wednesday’s Giveaway: $25 at Ellie Bee’s Baby Boutique

Today we are giving away…

A $25 Gift Certificate

from Ellie Bee’s Baby Boutique

I love baby showers.  I’ll admit, they felt like more of an obligation before I had kids of my own, but now, I get excited whenever I receive an invitation.  Good friends + delicious food + adorable baby clothes = a lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Next time you’d like to congratulate a new mom-to-be, check out our very own Colorado Springs Etsy shop, Ellie Bee’s Baby Boutique.  My favorite is the I Love You “Cherry” Much Onesie Bouquet, shown above ($30).  It includes 1-3 (or more) onesies; 1-3 (or more) pairs of coordinating cotton pants; 1-3 “filler” items such as burp cloths, wash cloths, bibs, socks, mits, or hats; decorative accents such as a soft rattle, toy, hair bow, head band, and/or flowers; and 1 decorative basket, flower pail, or plant pot.  So cute!

A cute diaper cake, like the one shown above ($40), has a long lifespan.  First, use it at a centerpiece for the baby shower.  Then, display it as part of the nursery decor.  Finally, when you run out of diapers at 2 a.m. one night, dive in and put it to good use!

All bouquets are handmade and ONE OF A KIND. Since no two bouquets are the same, please email me with ideas on colors, themes, and/or items you’d like to have used in your bouquet!

EACH BOUQUET also comes with a scrapbooked card containing a list of items within the bouquet AND A PICTURE of the items as well! Your new mom will be able to keep her bouquet intact to show it off (if she wishes) until she needs her items!

Please note: all clothing in your purchase is of a name brand such as: Carters (or divisions of Carters), Gymboree, Old Navy, Baby Gap, etc.  If you request specific brands, please contact me or leave your request in the “note to seller” section.

I love these cute little onesie sundaes ($19)!  Can you believe that all of these coordinating necessities are included?

Lisa, the creative genius behind Ellie Bee’s Baby Boutique, is always coming up with new ideas; she just mentioned on Facebook that she’s working on “Bathtime Sushi”…can’t wait to see it!

My name is Lisa. I am a mom of two fantastic children and a teacher.  I recently cut back from my teaching position to part-time in order to stay home with my babies!  This time with them is precious to me and I want to savor every moment of it.  Thus, I created Ellie Bee’s Bouquets, a way for me to stay home with my “loves”, while at the same time do something productive with my time.

Ellie Bee’s was also created simply for my love of being crafty, and for the love of making a gift that someone can give with pride and someone can receive with surprise (since my items are ONE OF A KIND)!
