#DIY | Flower Pot Baby Shower Gift

23 Jun

Calling all moms, sisters, friends and grandmas! This is a fun and easy project you can do to add a spin to your loved one’s baby shower gift.  Follow along as we take you through a simple step by step process in creating the most one of a kind gift that she is sure to love.

Materials needed:

1)      Jammies (We recommend Jammies Pret-A-Porter) sold at Lil Rapunzel’s. These adorable onesies are perfect for adding color for your “flower pot” and we have sizes ranging from 0-3, 3-6, 6-9, and 9-12 months, all great for that growing baby.

2)      Ribbon – have fun with this. Feel free to pick a color related to the gender of the baby. You can also keep it simple with a neutral ribbon to create a more subtle look.

3)      Flowers – the only thing we recommend is that you don’t pick a flower that will over power the flower pot. Make sure you choose a flower that will balance it out. We went ahead and picked the Penta’s flower. But you could also pick from the following options too! Feel free to  keep all the flowers the same or you can mix it up so it looks like a real flower garden!blog

Closet Gossip: Gift Guide Part 6 ~ Hallie

7 Dec

Here at Rapunzel’s Closet, the girls have started to find themselves wondering who will be on their lists this year and what the perfect gift for that special someone may be. For “Rapunzel’s Gift Giving Guide,” we had a few of our most thoughtful selling associates narrow down and pick two of their favorite items that they hope to be giving holiday season. Yesterday we featured Ashley’s picks. Today is all about Hallie. Hallie has logged the most years out of all of us at Rapunzel’s Closet and loves being able to work on the sales floor when she visits from our corporate office in NYC!

Our store buyer, Hallie functions as Rapunzel’s eyes and ears in the New York fashion scene. She is the one who sifts through countless vendors and merchandise to make sure our store is always stocked with the hottest trends. Hallie continued used her expertise in product selection when she chose our new Equipment button-downs and Chewbeads necklaces as her top picks for our Holiday Gift Guide.

The brand Equipment’s French origin is apparent in the slick lines and rich fabrics they use in their clothing. Rapunzel’s just received some great new pieces for the holiday season and the French sophistication is consistent throughout the different styles. With that, Hallie chose the Slim-Fit Signature button-down blouse in the star print as her favorite.

“My newest obsession is shirting – I feel like no matter what – a blouse always looks good. My Equipment blouses have become my go to pieces for everything and it’s an easy wearable gift for basically any body type.” 

Keeping in mind the new moms we may be shopping for this year, Hallie also chose the Chewbeads Hudson necklace as her second choice in our Gift Guide. Like their name suggests, these necklaces are made from 100% silicone are safe for babies and toddlers to chew on. Not only are these necklaces easy to keep clean, but they also make a fun fashion statement, at the same time.

“What I love about Chewbeads is that they are not only functional but fashionable too! It’s the perfect holiday gift for any new mom. They are soothing for the teething baby who chews on everything – but mom can still wear these big, chunky, bright necklaces after the teething is done.”

Equipment Signature button-down: $248.00
Chewbeads Hudson necklace: $40.00

Closet Gossip: Gift Guide Part 3 ~ Kristen

4 Dec

Here at Rapunzel’s Closet, the girls have started to find themselves wondering who will be on their lists this year and what the perfect gift for that special someone may be. For “Rapunzel’s Gift Giving Guide,” we had a few of our most thoughtful selling associates narrow down and pick two of their favorite items that they hope to be giving holiday season. Last week we featured Stephanie and Sarah’s picks. Today is all about Kristen who works on our selling floor but is also the master of all of our logistics. She does a great job! We are so lucky to have her on our team!blog

Kristen loves her accessories; you’ll never catch her coming into work without them. Therefore, it makes sense why she chose two of Rapunzel’s most popular accessories as her favorite gift ideas.

The Love Quote scarves are not only a favorite among celebrities like Cameron Diaz, Jessica Biel, and Rachel Bilson; they are also a favorite among Rapunzel girls!

“Each of us at the store own at least one. They come in so many colors that it’s hard to choose your favorite, nonetheless the best color for someone else! I would probably give the Portobello color; it’s a nice neutral and would go with mostly anything. When giving gifts, I like to know that it’s something they are going to actually get a lot of use out of, not something that’s going to sit in their closet.”

Kristen also chose the Stacked bracelets that Rapunzel’s recently started carrying. The bracelets come in several different styles and colors, each going perfectly well with the other. Living up to their name, these bracelets are perfect for stacking and pairing with other different style bracelets.

“I was so excited when we started carrying these. The ocean themed ones are sweet and the colored beads are so trendy right now. But my favorite bracelets are the zodiac bracelets. They’re great to give to all ages—all you need to know is their birthday and you can buy the right one. Horoscopes are a guilty pleasure for a lot of people, so I think it’s a fun and risk-free gift to give.”

Love Quote scarf: $88.00
Stacked bracelets: Prices vary from $22.00-$64.00

Closet Gossip: New Feature!

29 Nov

We’re so lucky to have the very talented Rachel Almeida as part of our selling team this year! She’s also a seasoned blogger and will be regularly contributing to our ShopRapunzels.com blog! blog

Closet Gossip is going to be a regular feature “A behind-the-scenes peek into Palm Beach’s most enchanted boutique!”

With Thanksgiving and Black Friday gone and past, many of us find ourselves starting to panic at the thought of holiday shopping. It is the only time of year when your sister, mother, babysitter, neighbor, and everyone else in between find their names on the same list—your holiday shopping list.

Keeping in mind how preferences differ from one gift-receiver to another, last-minute holiday shopping will only allow for reckless spending and even worse, unsatisfied family and friends.  Rapunzel’s Closet offers a variety of affordable, funky, and personalized gifts that will leave everyone on your list wishing they had thought of it first.

Here at Rapunzel’s Closet, the girls have started to find themselves wondering who will be on their lists this year and what the perfect gift for that special someone may be. For “Rapunzel’s Gift Giving Guide,” we had a few of our most thoughtful sales staff pick two of their favorite items that they hope to be giving holiday season. We’re rolling out our gift guide over the next few posts – so keep checking back to see what is our our wish lists!

First Up: Stephanie

Our store manager, Stephanie, keeps a pretty busy schedule. So the fact that she’s able to do some of her holiday shopping at work makes it only that much easier.

Stephanie chose her favorite book from Rapunzel’s new selection of coffee table books. The varied book subjects and quality photography make for the perfect gift for someone who appreciates anything from rock-n-roll history to Palm Beach decorating styles.

“I think my mom back in Maryland would enjoy a book like Shell Chic. Lots of people are fascinated by the fact that we can go to the beach year-round. She would probably love if I gave her this book and a couple of shells from one of my recent trips to the beach.”

Stephanie also chose the Minnie Rose Pow-Wow top in cashmere. While Stephanie chose the Sand color as her favorite, Minnie Rose offers many other colors and even make the Pow-Wow top in cotton.

“This is a great layering piece. The sizing on these are great too, they come XS/S and M/L, making it easier if I can’t remember their exact measurements. It’s super comfy and with a great pair of white pants it can easily be taken into the summer months.”

Minnie Rose Cashmere Pow Wow Sweater: $275.00
Shell Chic by Marlene Hurley Marshall: $35.00
