I recently visited Bel Bambini, a brand new children’s store in Newport Beach, for a blogger event. This has got to be the most well thought out kid store I have ever been to! From fully designed nursery themes to a stroller garden and even a beautifully painted river for the kids to follow through the store — this is a destination for any expectant mother.
Upstairs even included a couture kids clothing department. As part of the event they had a kids couture fashion show and Little Man ended up in his first (and probably last) Fendi outfit. I was surprised at how well he did. I fully expected him to cling onto mommy. Instead he walked up to the platform like a big boy, stepped onto the stage and stayed there for a minute. Then he stepped down and walked off stage holding my hand. (insert SUPER PROUD Mom moment here!)
After the fashion show we were treated to a tasty gourmet buffet including amazingly delicious bundt cakes! Bel Bambini also set-up activities including Valentine’s crafts and sticker fun with Box Play for Kids for the children while us moms participated in an editorial scavenger hunt with themes like Baby Registry Must-Haves, Baby On the Go, Welcome Baby Basket picks and First Birthday Parties. I chose to create a list of the “Must Have” picks for a boys 1st Birthday. To view my picks visit here!
We were also treated with unforgettable raffle prizes and fabulous gift bags generously donated by Bel Bambini vendors. I ended up winning a Cloud B Turtle and LadyBug which projects stars and ocean waves onto the ceiling. Although this was meant for a baby my husband has officially absconded with the Turtle as the calming ocean wave sounds and lights make him feel like he’s at a spa.
All in all a beautiful store, generous prizes and a delightful time was had by all.
