I really love the simplicity of Swiss Design. Our Crosses Blanket was inspired by the Swiss Army blankets that I’ve loved for so long. The durability and the timelessness really are a great baby gift for the modern baby. This blanket was also inspired by my love for A Merry Mishap and her aesthetic. I’m always smitten by her black and white homescapes.

Our dear friend Traci from 45Wall Design so generously partnered with us on this giveaway! Her crosses pocket jotter, notecards and the Mumford and Sons inspired poster are such a great compliment to our baby blanket. She lovingly screen prints all of her posters by hand. If you haven’t seen her Instagram feed, it’s filled with inspiring images of her daily life!

We are excited to start our 8 Weeks of Handcrafted for Life Giveaway. Handcrafted for Life™ means that our baby blankets are made with the utmost respect for the PLANET and the PEOPLE. All of EllieFunDay’s organic baby blankets are handcrafted by marginalized women in India. Each baby blanket purchased provides a fair wage and a dignified living for a disenfranchised woman.  We do our best to source responsibly and to be mindful of our planet. That is why our mantra is to buy less, buy better.

Each of our organic baby blankets feature 4 layers of organic cotton muslin that is super soft upon the touch and is perfect for baby’s delicate skin. Breathability, washability and durability are of utmost importance to us. Our blankets have been road tested by the best of the best…that means moms and kiddos alike!

We’ve partnered with our favorite makers in the industry to bring you 8 Weeks of Handcrafted for Life Giveaway! Every Monday, for 8 weeks we are giving away a goodie from one of our favorite makers alongside of one of our blankets.

Today we are giving away one of our FOX & FOREST Organic Baby Blanket with a pair of Freshly Picked Moccasins!

A Cloud Party

Yes, sometimes at Ellie Fun Day we like to throw parties for special friends. My dear friend Traci at 45 Wall Design was celebrating a special birthday, so her husband Herman decided to enlist me and her cousin-in-law, Rachel to come up with something fabulous for her. We were brainstorming ways to bless Traci and their new Eichler and came up with the idea of showering her with blessings.

We enlisted all of her friends to write a phrase of blessing for her and the new house. I printed them onto raindrops that hung from the linen cloud mobile that I sewed. The light was just perfect in her atrium.

As I’m all about recycling and being sustainable I found these GORGEOUS Wasara Plates at Branch in SF. They’re entirely tree free and made out of sugar cane, bamboo and reed pulp. I can’t say how lovely they are to see in person, especially the package that they come in! The shapes that they come in are just so elegant. I also found compostable forks and knives from Birchware via Amazon. I hand stamped Traci’s initial using an inkpad and then wrapped the knife in Japanese Washi Tape.

 

I love flowers so dearly and a party isn’t a party without flowers. Sticking with the theme I used billy balls, peonies, anemones, ranunculus and Star of Bethlehem with a Gemini filler. They turned out lovely!

 

 

These lovely critters I found at Michaels and used a white spray paint to cover them. As for the party hats…I used the same paper from the rain drops and then made a fringe with white tissue paper for the tassels. I think that this was my favorite part of the whole party. It just gave a whole new element to fun and party. The tree stumps (do you recognize them?) our dear friend Al had an old pear tree that he was cutting down and he offered to cut some of these for our pop-up shop.  I thought they were the perfect little element to give variation in height.

For the drinks we served a classic and pink lemonade with fun yellow straws and these lids we purchased via Etsy. I printed out little flags on craft paper that read “We Heart Traci”.

For dessert we decided to go with Traci’s favorites. We were a little sneaky and checked out her Pinterest board and came up with this Strawberry Rhubarb Crisp in a jar. They were super easy to make.

Kara’s cupcakes with Cloud Toppers and raindrop fondant.

Traci’s favorite kettlecorn in cones and finished with washi tape. I bought a foam board from Michaels and wrapped it with tissue. To get the cones to stand up, I used floral wire inserted into the board then I slid the cones through the bottom and filled the cones with the kettlecorn.

The pièce de résistance were these cloud macarons that my friend Lisa made! They were the most adorable things I’ve ever seen! Yes, she is for hire! We found instructions here.

Thank you Herman for these lovely photos and allowing us to bless Traci in this way!
