The Babesta Window – Behind the Scenes!

We had a great time crafting for the window this week. We made some pretty nifty hanging geometric "lanterns" out of neon colored plastic straws and ribbons. They give a little dimention to our window and give our little Uglydoll models a super cool environment.  We were inspired on Pinterest (go figure!)

We think that these would also make for a great, simple party decoration! Hang them over the birthday table!

First gather your materials! You'll need ample amounts of neon straws, curling ribbon, scissors and fishing wire to hang. 

1 the ingredients

Cut the straws in half and then take 3 halves. Feed the curling ribbon through the staraws.

3 run ribbon through straw

Tie the string with the three straw halves to form a triangle and tie it off.

Now take 3 of your triangles and lay them flat. Tie them into one big triangle.

7 making triangles

With your one remaining triangle, tie it to the top of your large triangle so it should look like this.

Next bend the 4th traingle at the top down and tie it to the bottom triangle on the left bottom side.  At this point it should look like this.

8 making the cubes

Now all that is left is to tie off those two triangles at the bottom with string and you should end up with a 3D diamond.

and Voila!

Check out our new Babesta Mini-Lookbook! “About Face”

Check out our first “Lookbook”! Hope you like it!
One trend that ran strong this season was face prints. Jackets, sweatshirts, hats and tees boasted big eyes and animated looks to add some whimsy to kids’ fashion. We’ve paired tops, hats and jackets by Mini Rodini, Bobo Choses and Munster Kids with fab colorful denim by ESP No. 1 and Munster Kids. Here are some of Babesta’s duds that are, as we’ve pointed out, “About Face.”

Floor Sample Sale at Babesta

We're running our annual floor sample sale at Babesta Cribz, making way for new styles and models. We always try to rotate what we have on the floor once a year, so that we have the "space" to show as many differnent cribs, dressers and beds that we can. We know how important it is to be able to see them in person, touch them and really understand the scale and quality. It's great for us too to have our "in store" experience putting them together. Anyway, we have some great pieces and some favorable prices, so if you're in the market, now's the time! Babesta Cribz, 56 Warren Street, NYC 646 290 5508.

Last Day of 2012 Prices for Oeuf Nursery Furniture & Introducing New Rhea Crib & Merlin Dresser

Oeuf cribs and changers are due to get a price hike starting on the 15th, so it’s a great idea to snap yours up today or tomorrow if you’re in the market. Choose from the Classic Crib (a favorite style for its simplicity and adorable toddler conversion), Sparrow Crib (super stylish) and Rhea Crib (the new, more modern version of the Robin). Oeuf also recently introduced the Merlin dresser, in 3 drawers or 6 drawers. It lives up to its name, as it matches all of Oeuf’s crib options, due to its modular design. Change the pulls & the feet and voila, it’s a perfect companion for any crib style.
