Bullfrogs and Butterflies Boutique - Review

I had the good fortune to win a giveaway at Jamie's Precious Peas a while back. What I won was some items from Bullfrogs and Butterflies Boutique, from their Baby Treat Shoppe, which you will find has the cutest selection of perfectly wrapped baby treats!

One of the items I received was the Cutie Cannoli. How adorable is this? It's a sweet soft yellow terry burp cloth wrapped around a white Gerber onesie, all tied up with ribbon to look like a pastry straight from the Italian bakery.

I also got a Petit Four Sweetie which is made up of three soft reuseable wipes! They're terry cloth and a good size at 9x9". If you can bear to unwrap the pretty packaging!

Next up is the Diaper Cupcakes. They are Pampers Swaddlers 'cakes', wrapped with a pretty ribbon 'cup', with a washcloth 'frosting' and a cherry on top that is a bath bead for mom! Beautifully pulled together in a tulle wrapping, these are almost too pretty to unwrap. And the bath beads smell just heavenly. I'm sure any mom would be grateful not only for the treat for baby but the treat for her as well!

Here's another for you to drool over! The Kid-O Candies are cute little baby washcloths all rolled up into a candy and tied with tulle!

I have to say that Jennifer Williams, Bullfrogs and Butterflies' owner, is super nice and some kind of super woman too! A mom of four and an entrepreneur, she has come up with all these unique designs for baby gifts that are sure to please for baby showers, newborn gifts or just that special you-deserve-it present for a new mom. How does she find the time!

Some of you may know I have seven (!!) friends who are expecting. Good grief. It's honestly a mini baby boom over here. Some of my lucky friends will be getting some of these sweet treats at their showers and I know they will be oohed and ahhed over! It's not just the way they're wrapped, it's the quality and the care in design and execution that makes these baby treats special.

Bullfrogs and Butterflies Boutique
isn't just about the sweet treats, though. Oh, no. They have a great assortment of other products. The Layette Bouquets are a favourite of mine, they're super pretty and would make a stunning shower gift. They also have pretty car seat covers, accessories for baby, gorgeous baby blankets, and, well, lots more great stuff (check out the gift sets!). Not only that but they have an organic option where you can request your diaper or layette gift be made with eco-friendly 'ingredients'!

One more thing - I got a sneak peek at some brand new products that aren't even in the store yet! They are two completely natural skin care products. The first is a Citrus Mint Soothing Lip Smoother that is made with a list of great-sounding all-natural ingredients. Everything in it is not only recognizable (no parabens, phthalates, weird fragrances, colours or chemicals I just don't recognize) but it sounds yummy too. The second is Lavender Vanilla Organic Shea Butter. I'm all about avoiding the nasties that you will find in most skin care products (watch that Disappearing Male doc for good reasons why) and these two products hit all the right notes with me from the natural scents to the ingredients.

Okay, this all sounds so gushy and lovey, I know. I just am really thrilled with Bullfrogs and Butterflies Boutique, and happy to have the opportunity to share this great shop with my readers. Once I received the treats from Jennifer I knew I wanted to do a review here on my blog - and just for the record it was all my idea to do this, I wasn't paid for it or anything like that. I'm just happy to show my support for a mom-based business with such a great line of products.
