How adorable is that nappy cake!! It was gifted to me free of charge so I could feature it on my blog by Nette at www.owletgifts.co.uk. When we met on twitter she kindly made the offer to send it to me for review and I was delighted as the nappies would be put to good use in the future as my sister had just found out she was expecting a baby! But as it was early days I couldn’t tell anyone so Nette was unaware that my sister was pregnant and her gift would be very much appreciated by my sister. 🙂
My sister has now announced her pregnancy so I am okay to mention it in my blog post. It turns out she will be having a little girl but it doesn’t matter that the nappy cake is Boy themed as it will all still be put to good use. My sister loves the colour blue for a boy or girl and as she already has a little boy she can also use the blanket, washcloths, etc with him too. 🙂
This Butterfly Beauty 3 Tier Nappy Cake can be bought on the Owlet Gifts website for £50 and it would make a fantastic baby shower or new parent gift! It is certainly obvious that a great deal of time and effort has gone into constructing this nappy cake and it is this care and attention that makes the nappy cake all the more special!
The nappy cake was shrink wrapped in polythene and it came in a branded Owlet Gifts tall cardboard box. It was kept securely in place in the box during transit by means of air pillow packaging. It worked successfully as the nappy cake arrived in one piece – looking fabulous and ready to be gifted!
I tell you now that this nappy cake and the butterfly and flower washcloth creations looked so good I felt mean taking it all apart! But I’m afraid it had to be done as I wanted to take a photo so I could show you all the contents of the nappy cake.
Here is the contents of the Butterfly Beauty 3 Tier Nappy Cake from Owlet Gifts :-
- 3 x baby blue washcloths
- 3 x navy blue washcloths
- 6 x white washcloths
- 1 x blue fleece blanket
- 1 x blue butterfly brushed cotton muslin
- 1 x baby blue muslin
- 6 x plastic spoons
- 26 x size 3 Pampers nappies (please note that the number of nappies and products varies depending on which nappy cake design you choose)
The nappy cake is a decorative item and because of that it contains pearl headed pins and small elastic bands (to keep the design together) which need to be removed when you deconstruct the nappy cake.
After taking apart the beautiful nappy cake you end up with a lot of useful baby essentials! (As you can see from the above photo) This gift will be welcomed by any expecting or new parents. My sister thought it looked beautiful and she was very impressed!
