Gear Up For Summer Block Party Day 5- Giveaway 2: Summer Entertaining With Carolyn’s Kitchen Giveaway! #contest #giveaway

The 5th Day of the Gear Up For Summer Block Party is here!  I have teamed up with 9 awesome bloggers where every day from May 18th to 22nd, two bloggers will feature a Summer related giveaway to get you ready for Summer.  Cat from 3 Kids and Us and I are the finale of the party!  After you enter the 3 Summer filled giveaways I have going on here, be sure to enter Cat’s giveaway for a $20 Piggy Paint Gift Certificate!  My girls just love Piggy Paint, a non toxic, odorless, and kid-friendly nail polish so be sure to enter her giveaway to treat your little girl and paint her piggies in fun, Summer colors!

Meet the Company:

Carolyn West’s vintage-inspired aprons and dish gloves enhance the merriment of playing whimsical dress-up combined with the indulgent delights of naughty pin-ups. This range of appeal makes Carolyn’s designs perfect for gifts for all occasions.

These sets are also sweet treats for yourself and fun gifts for mothers, sisters, daughters, and brides. Carolyn mixes the domesticity of past decades with the working world of the 21st century woman by creating a business focusing on feminine domestic designs.

Inspired by a gorgeous apron and glove set from Paris, Carolyn began by discovering 1940’s patterns and bringing them to life with her modern interpretive designs. “I wanted to bring back the glamour, sexiness, and cuteness of a bygone innocent era. The gloves and fabrics are new and nicer – it’s a new and improved version of the ’40’s.”

“I let my imagination run, and originated the embodiment of that 40’s girl in the apron and gloves, living in our ultra modern age. Suzy Homefaker slaves over a hot microwave for minutes at a time, constant hostess to all, in and around her kitchen, enticing temptress to you know who, you know where.”

You too will find yourself transformed to that frivolous and fun part of you when you become Suzy Homefaker in Carolyn’s designs.

Through the Mom Trials: I’ve featured Carolyn’s Kitchen last year in late October where I mentioned how these vintage-inspired aprons turn up the heat in any kitchen!  Not only do these pin up styled aprons put the sizzle in your every day cooking, but they add a glamorous feel for any hostess in charge of a Summer party, event, or bbq.  They are made with the highest quality 100% cotton and eyelet lace trim right here in the USA!  She also offers matching dish gloves and garters that will surely make you the starlet of your kitchen and event!

I love entertaining as much as I love to cook and there’s no reason why your apron can’t do double duty in protecting your clothes while being a fashion statement.  I received the sassy Yellow Dorothy Apron from Carolyn (thanks Carolyn!) and I love how the combination of yellow and white polka dots plays against the black and white striping.  I adore the flirty attitude of the apron and the darling, ruffled pocket is perfect for keeping your cooking or personal essentials handy at all times.  The neck and belt ties are fully adjustable to fit and flatter any shape and maintains it’s sharp appearance through many washings.  My husband definitely thinks I’m smoking hot when I don this kitchen apron in and out of the kitchen!

You will certainly wow your guests with your hip hostess style when you serve guests in a Carolyn’s Kitchen glamour apron!  These practical and fashion forward features make these hostess aprons a must have for Summer entertaining!

What’s New: Carolyn’s Kitchen has now added the sexy “Safari So Good” line with a collection of animal print aprons that are just as demure and playful as the rest of her aprons found in her boutique!  It’s enough to bring your wild side out of you!  Rawr!

Where to buy: Carolyn’s Kitchen website for $29.95-$42.00.

Giveaway Time: A lucky Blessings Abound winner will receive this hot Aqua Sweetheart Apron, perfect for Summer entertaining!  All you have to do in order to be qualified for a chance to win is to visit Carolyn’s Kitchen and pick out your favorite apron!
