A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of hosting a trunk show for The Beaufort Bonnet Company. Today I want to share with my readers about this wonderful company. Plus, they are extending a special trunk offer to DoSayGive followers.
Despite the celebrity-driven trend toward skinny jeans and graphic tees for children, The Beaufort Bonnet Company started in 2009 with the belief that some mothers craved a more traditional and refined style for their children. The company is headquartered in Kentucky but their signature “Beaufort” bonnet is actually based on a centuries-old pattern from the the town of Beaufort, South Carolina.
Before The Beaufort Bonnet Company, deeply-rooted Southern mothers could find traditional bonnets at various women’s exchanges scattered among the South. But the founder of The Beaufort Bonnet Company sensed that this style would appeal to so many more. And they were right! Today their clothes and bonnets can be found in over 200 stores nationwide as well as online.
The Beaufort Bonnet Company dresses boys and girls from newborn up to a size 4T. Here are some of their popular classics for children:
The Bucket Hat is what Southern boys wear to the beach and pool! This comes in several adorable patterns!
My friends with boys went gaga over these color block pastel Coral Bay swim trunks.
Can we say “throwback” to the 80s? Love!
I fell in love with this Talbot Side Tie in Pink Windowpane ($56) and am ordering it for my two year old.
I had so much fun bringing their trunk show to Dallas and seeing their clothes up close. How cute would these sunsuits be on boy/girl siblings or twins this summer?
This was my first time ever hosting a trunk show; hanging the clothes on the widows was something I’ve seen friends do for trunk shows. The light shining in made them all the more precious!
One really popular item at the trunk show was this giant Isabel Beach Bag ($200).
How many times do you buy a beach or pool bag and then realize you can’t fit everything in it? So annoying! I tested it this one out and it can hold five beach towels plus toys! I also love that this bag is fully waterproof if you get in lined (extra $15) and comes in many color combinations. (If you need any ideas, I’ll be happy to give you some!).
And if you are needing a baby gift, TBBC has wonderful heirloom gifts. For example, moms love these bow swaddles for photos:
The Beaufort Bonnet Company is so nice to let me extend the trunk show FREE SHIPPING offer to my blog readers. So if you spend over $200 on their website, use code TRUNKFREESHIP to get Free Shipping.
If you do you order something, please tell them DoSayGive sent you. You can write DoSayGive in the “Notes” section of the ordering page. (And, yes, I will get credit as I would in a normal trunk show, so thank you!)
You will get your bonnets in time for Easter when you order in February.
Now for the GIVEAWAY! The Beaufort Bonnet Company is giving one DoSayGive reader a Bellefaire Bonnet in Yellow Dixie Dot with seersucker liner and ties in a size medium (size 9-24m) which is valued at $68.00!
