The idea for a Brick and Mortar store came from all of YOU! We loved the idea so much.
When I was walking through our local town in May, I walked right past a store with a handwritten “FOR RENT” sign in the window. It had a local number to call. And so I did!
It all seemed to fall into place – the space was perfect, blocks away from my home, and right next to my hometown.
And so we brought it to life! This area needed a “home” for parents to come – not only to shop, but to have a community. COVID really did a number on our little town – every restaurant closed, our local cakery gone, store fronts not being able to survive 2020. Our hope was to bring light and a sense of belonging to local families.
I curated custom pieces for the Bumblebaby store along with items from our favorite brands – such as Larken Bras (use code BUMBLEBABY), BeMyBreastFriend’s Boob Bag, Slumberpod (*use code BUMBLEBABY), Bibs Pacifiers, Cuddle and Kind, and so much more!
We carry baby and toddler clothes and accessories up to size 6T, as well as women’s clothing curated for you to wear pre-, during, and post-pregnancy.
Our opening night was more than we could have ever imagined! We had wonderful and generous sponsors:
Grazing Table Chicago provided the most beautiful and delicious charcuterie board. We actually did a girls night the week prior, and the platter was the perfect amount of food. You have to check them out on their instagram and website!
Our gorgeous window display was graciously done by Pop of Paper Company. Check out their adorable toddler kits as well!
The charcuterie was paired perfectly with with the most gorgeous crudites by Platters and Boards by Lauren. The colors and design in these boards are certainly an art – not to mention, delicious!!
Along with the food bites, Right Bee Cider provided tastings of their hard ciders! What we love most about Right Bee is there is no sugar added – the dryness of the cider makes it crisp and delicious – and not sugary and overwhelming! The clementine flavor was my favorite! Their owner, and I met at a CPR session a few years back, and it was so fun to see her again and celebrate both of our businesses. Check out their website and order directly, as well as their tap room!
These ADORABLE and custom outfits were given by Ann and Reeves Kids. I mean….they ARE ADORABLE.
The BEST chocolate chip cookies (I am not kidding) were provided by my aunt Brenda at Brenda’s Cookie Kitchen
I Want Candy in Clarendon Hills made these custom lollipops! They were a HIT!
We had SO many local generous sponsors! Hinsdale Ortho generously donated all of the wine for the night! This is where I grew up going to and where I had my braces done. Root and Bloom Chiropractic donated some beautiful macaroons and is just down the street from us! Make sure to check them out as well. They treat pediatrics and adults. Toni’s in Hinsdale so generously sponsored a gorgeous cake – a lifetime favorite place! Village Gourmet is just down the street from the Bumblebaby store – Meg and I go there every day! Deli sandwiches, homemade soups, baked goods and more.
All photos were taken by the very talented Mary at Wonder and Awe.
The girls and I are so honored and excited to be able to bring Bumblebaby to YOU! We can’t wait to see you in the store!
Make sure to check out our consultations in the store as well – a monthly CPR clinic, weekly feeding clinic, grandparent classes and babysitter classes to come!
