I would like to give a huge THANK YOU to all of my friends, family and people I've never met who have supported my Blessings and Bows business this past year! I can't believe it has been a year already!! This has been such a fun adventure! What started out as a plan to make custom gifts for friends' baby showers has turned into a fun business and creative outlet! Thank you to my sweet husband for working with me this past year to develop my logo, website, print media and just overall "branding". He has also been such a huge support daily! Every time I bring a freshly painted frame or clipboard or whatever into the office to show him, instead of just nodding and saying "uh, huh, that's great..." he always gives such positive and constructive feedback! He never acts tired of looking at my products or acts bored with the whole thing. He has just been wonderful! Thank you Josh for everything and for not getting frustrated when I stay up until 3am working on orders!

Thank you to everyone who has supported my business in any way! I look forward to year number 2!!! Be looking for a few new product lines coming your way soon!!!

Functional Style

This item is a great idea and a solution to those boring Bumbo, yet functional chairs!! These adorable Sweet Cheek seat covers are custom made with so many different fabrics and designs to fit your personal style! I love the use of ribbon to hold toys and more! This is a darling and functional product that would make a WONDERFUL baby gift!!! I love the high quality at such a reasonable price!

Sweet Cheeks seat covers offer the perfect solution to the non-breathable rubbery material that sticks to your baby’s delicate skin when you sit them in the Bumbo infant chair. This soft machine washable cotton seat cover is covered in diamonds of brown, pink, and soft pink. Other features include 2 loopy tags for attaching link toys, and an 8 X 5 parent friendly pocket...made to hold pacifiers, teethers, toys....etc.

Visit Boutique Sweet Cheeks' shop at

for your handmade one-of-a-kind Bumbo cover!!
Mention the Blessings and Bows Blog in a convo to Boutique Sweet Cheeks, before making a purchase, and you will receive a 20% discount!!
