Hollywood is Hip to Bebe au Lait

It’s true, celebrities sometimes get to shop at events where they are chaperoned and guaranteed privacy, and the rest of us have to shop the standard ways. However, they still choose which brands and products they like and when it comes to their children, they’re extra sensitive about what they’ll use and specific about why they like it. With a boomlet in Hollywood, we are hearing from a lot of celebrity moms lately! At the Boom Boom Room (the day before the Golden Globes, in LA) we introduced Hollywood to Bebe au Lait’s new, exclusive patterns and all of the benefits of our innovative new Double Bibs and even had fun talking about parenting.

Once children are ready for solid foods, protecting their clothes–during snacking, meals and in the washing machine–means finding a sizable Bib without scratchy closures. Most of the celebrities I met had a Bebe au Lait or Hooter Hiders cover IN their diaper bag and were eagerly anticipating our entry into the next stage of their parenting lives. The Double Bib and All-Purpose burp cloths were adored for their simple, chic designs and beautiful style. More than a few celebrities even commented about our high-end cottons that could withstand a lot of use, travel and washing rendering them right for an eco-minded lifestyle where quality and craftsmanship are more highly valued than disposable, poorly crafted versions of something similar.

A Bebe Thanksgiving Fieldtrip

Perhaps if you tried calling our headquarters yesterday after 3 p.m. PST you noticed no one was minding the phones. Our apologies for the inconvenience, but our company closed early to take a little field trip 20 minutes north to our off-site Warehouse in Santa Clara. (Until September of this year, our warehouse occupied the ground floor of our headquarters here in Los Gatos. That is, until they outgrew the space and moved to a new 6000 sq. ft. facility.) There in Santa Clara, everyone finally got to tour the new space and indulge in a pre-Thanksgiving potluck feast.

After sampling our dishes which included roasted turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, homemade lasagna and an array of salads and baked goodies, we all drew numbers 1 through 16 and exchanged holiday gifts White Elephant style. If you’re not familiar with this entertaining yet inexpensive way to exchange gifts with a fair amount of people, we follow this version. Our theme this year was “tacky yet useful” which keeps things simple and stress-free in terms of finding a gift to give in order to participate. Everyone was invited to bring either something from home that’s never been used or to make a “tacky yet useful” purchase of no more than $10. The most popular (i.e. “stolen”) gifts this year? A colorful bird-shaped vegetable peeler, a handle of sake, a collection of children’s storybooks and a slinky-yoyo set.

Thanks for stopping by our blog and Happy Thanksgiving to you all from everyone at Bebe au Lait!

That’s A Wrap!

We had quite an ensemble gathered just a week ago for our third and final photo shoot of 2008. About seven little ones clamoring around with their mommies in tow greatly outnumbered our professional models, especially whilst shooting at our first location in the morning.

Throughout the day we captured many beautiful photos to represent Bebe au Lait and our new products. Our Double Bibs are scheduled to arrive very very soon and we can hardly contain ourselves with excitement! If you’re signed up for our newsletter, keep checking your in-boxes for an announcement when they will be available for you and our retailers! If you’re not signed up yet but you’d like to, you may do so here.

Finally, many appreciative thanks to all who helped pull together this photo shoot![slideshow=24]

Halloween at Bebe au Lait

Our Bebe au Lait office was more enchanted than haunted this Halloween. We had Dorothy, two princesses, a cute little cop and a baby chunky monkey visit us for some in-office trick or treating. Since several of our office mommies are uber healthy, we treated the kid to Play-Doh and pint-size toys along with traditional Halloween candies. (And cupcakes for the “big kids!”).

Rachael introduced the Switch Witch to Claire and later that night, the Switch Witch paid their kids a visit, switching out their candy to leave a present in its place.
