Dreamy Dress Ups {Giveaway}–CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Last week was the week of Dress-Up in my house. My daughter found a fairy/flower costume we’d received as a hand-me-down in a drawer and wanted to wear it almost every day. Then my son found his old Woody costume (from when he was 2) and wanted to wear that one day. I let him wear that around the house, but I had to put my foot down when he wanted to wear the Fievel Mousekewitz costume (red long-sleeved turtleneck shirt with felt hat) outside when it was 95 degrees! I didn’t, however, object to either child wearing light Butterfly Wings from Douglas Cuddle Toys outside at all!logo

Douglas Cuddle Toys has been a family owned and operated company for more than 60 years! They specialize in plush animals, especially rare breeds and species of animals. Are you looking for a plush Buffalo? They’ve got it. How about a baby goat? They’ve got it. My favorite is the Plush Llama–I’ve got a strange obsession with llamas. Douglas Cuddle Toys also offers a large line of Fun Fashion accessories, which includes adorable small totes for girls, fashion (plush) dogs and purses with (plush) dogs in them. I’ve never been one to understand the whole dog-as-an-accessory thing, but I’m not a 12-year old girl or Elle Woods, so I guess I just don’t get it. What did catch my eye in the Fashion Accessory line was the Dreamy Dress Ups.

Dreamy Dress Ups is a line of beautiful dress up wings. Now, we’re not just talking your average butterfly or fairy wing here. This is the company that makes Stuffed Skunks, remember? Along with your standard Butterfly and Monarch Butterfly, they’ve also got Ladybug Wings, Parrot Wings, Bat Wings, Bumble Bee Wings, Fairy Wings, Dragon Wings and Peacock Wings! This is smart because it makes them marketable to little boys as well as little girls. In fact, my son loved wearing the pair we were sent just as much as his sister, and ours weren’t “boy” wings at all!

We chose to review the Monarch Wings with Glitter in Purple. The wings are very well made; the fabric is thick yet slightly see-through to give them a light feel. There are elastic loops for your arms at the top and loops on the ends of the wings for attaching to your fingers, and the elastic is soft yet sturdy and attached very strongly. I’m definitely not worried about anything ripping off any time soon! The design of the Monarch Butterfly is beautiful and there is just a hint of glitter around the edges to give it sparkle, but not so much that it is overpowering and looks cheap. These are definitely a pair of well-constructed dress-up wings!

As you can see, they fit my 3 1/2-year old perfectly, but were definitely big on my 1 1/2-year old, so I’d say the age range for a good fit is about 2-12, depending on your child’s size (for the record, my daughter still enjoys wearing the wings even though they usually fall off). I love that you attach the wings to your fingers so that you are in control of the movement of the wings, as opposed to other wings that just sit stiffly on your back. This is a great choice for dress-up wings, and could even be a great addition to any Halloween costume (it’s just around the corner!). Dreamy Dress Ups wings can be purchased online for only $16.99. My kids love playing with their wings, and I’m sure yours will, too!

Cupcake Liners Wrappers {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Cupcakes!  I love these perfect little cupcake liners and wrappers from CupcakeLinersWrappers.com!  A friend introduced me to this shop a few weeks ago, and I was delighted by all the cute wrappers to look at.  What a fabulous way to decorate your treats in 10 seconds or less!

Imagine the possibilities!  Wrap your little cupcakes in some lovely damask wrappers for a formal event, or a cute polka dot set for a girls night, or some glittery ones for a birthday party!  Besides cupcakes, think about decorating muffins with baby shower liners?  Precious!

After I sent some hot pink glittery wrappers to my sister in law for her birthday, I recently pulled out my black and white ones to take to a sleepover with the teenage girls I mentor from my church.  See how diva we are?

They were a huge hit.  Especially after everyone ate their cupcakes and then wanted to wear the wrappers like little crowns!

And my favorite (tis the season!) are these Halloween options!

     

Just browsing the website makes me want to throw parties!

Start thinking of the next party you’re going to throw, because one lucky winner will receive one dozen wrappers of their choice from CupcakeLinersWrappers!
