An Ode to Alabama Football

Who’s ready for football season to start in just over one week?!  We sure are!

From Alabama Baby Clothes and Gifts to Houndstooth Bedding and Baby Books, we LOVE anything Alabama and especially when it includes houndstooth!

Not only is this fabric popular in good ol’ Alabama thanks to Bear Bryant’s hat, this is also a classic print fabric that we’re seeing everywhere from dresses and purses to chairs and curtains!

We get a lot of requests for Alabama nurseries, and while our tried and true black and white houndstooth bedding always looks great (and we keep it in stock!), I wanted to make a nursery that ever-so-gentlemanly tips its hat at the famous at fabric and University without getting too “Alabama themed”.

Here’s what I’ve come up with….

1. Young America’s Built to Grow 2000 Slat Crib in Black Light Antique — black to add some weight and convertible so it grows up with your little one!

2. Houndstooth and chocolate linen bumper for the crib from Pine Creek Bedding with a chocolate velour inside and trimmed in (#7) crimson linen fabric

3. A classic red ticking stripe fabric for the dust ruffle and an accent pillow for the glider again from Pine Creek Bedding.

4. Young America’s All Seasons 5 drawer chest in Chili Pepper Sand Thru

5. Four Season’s Sarah Glider in white with chocolate piping — made from a down-mix filling, this chair spoils you!  We’ve talked about these chairs before, and you’ve absolutely got to sit on one to appreciate it.  Plus, you don’t have to be scared of white fabric because it’s a slipcover that can be washed or dry-cleaned!

6. A vintage state of Alabama print that I found on Etsy (my love) — The detail is adorable, and I love the darker green as an accent to the chocolates and reds!

7. Classic crimson linen fabric — accent with this fabric to your heart’s content.  Use it for drapes, for accent pillows, and more!

The background is the paint color I would use (and it helps that it’s what’s already in my guest room)– Benjamin Moore’s Grant Beige.  A dark khaki that isn’t overwhelming but is a great neutral you won’t have to paint again in three years.

Since we have multiple Daniel Moore Alabama prints in our house, I would “borrow” a couple to hang over the chest and on an accent wall over the glider.

There you have it.  My classic nursery with a sweet and simple nod to Alabama.  I’d like to think it’s one of those classic nurseries that can grow with the little one, but I’m always open to comments, suggestions, etc.  Tell me what you think!

And don’t forget — Sugarfoot’s has your baby Bama fan covered for football season and beyond!  Shop now for the best selection of clothes, gifts, and more!

You absolutely MUST come out this year and visit us!  While we don’t actually sell anything at the expo (math without the computer makes my head hurt!), we do have some amazing raffles!

Rumor Has It

No, we’re not talking about the movie.

We’re actually talking about the completely FALSE rumor running around town that we’re going out of business.  WE ARE NOT CLOSING!  In fact, we’re growing!

Yes, we had a MAJOR furniture sale in June.  But that’s not us clearing out inventory to close; it’s us making room for the NEWEST and the BEST in the baby world when it comes to furniture!!

Like this beautiful collection from Munire Furniture….

Capri Collection from Munire Furniture

This is the Capri Collection, and it’s BRAND NEW!  It debuted back in April, went into production in May and it’s now on display at Sugarfoot’s!

And the newest from Million Dollar Baby…

Ashbury Collection from Million Dollar Baby

This is the Ashbury Collection, and we are so happy to bring you this beautiful new set of well-priced, quality furniture!  You really need to see this one in person — it’s fancy!

And have you seen the Renaissance Collection from Baby’s Dream?

Renaissance Collection from Baby's Dream

Now we have this best-seller in Espresso (shown in the picture) AND the SnowDrift White finish!  Dresser, Hutch, Changer, Chest, and TWO cribs!  WHEW! Do you see why we had to make some room?!

And this isn’t even all of the amazing NEW furniture we’ve got on display now or coming in soon! 

July is a VERY exciting month for us at Sugarfoot’s!  Between Babypalooza,  our 2nd Birthday, double PS points weekends, and every employee up here moving (ick!), we can’t wait to share this fun month with YOU!  There are a few secrets we have to keep for a little longer, but I’ll leave you with this for now…

Young America Panel Bed in Cherry

We’re giving this away! FOR FREE!  In a cherry finish (black is pictured). It’s a full size (double) bed.  Headboard.  Footboard.  Rails.  Slats.  EVERYTHING but the mattress!  And YOU could win it!  Join our mailing list by sending an “I want to know everything!” email to shopsugarfoots@gmail.com and follow us on Facebook.  That way you’ll learn all of the details closer to time and could win this fabulous bed!

Now, aren’t you excited that WE ARE NOT CLOSING?!?!

Products We Love: Snuggin Go

If you follow us on Facebook, then you’ve probably seen us talking about the Snuggin Go.  If you’ve ever wondered “What in the world is a SnugginGo?”  well, I have answers for you today!

We absolutely love the Snuggin Go products.  It’s one of our must-haves for registries and moms just can’t get enough of them.

This is a Snuggin Go.

Snuggin Go

It comes it lots of fun colors (as well as black and a camel/khaki too), and it’s covered it everyone’s favorite fabric — Minky Dot Chenille!

The side bars are designed to keep baby’s head from lolling around (especially when they sleep).  There is a bottom bar for when baby’s bum doesn’t quite fit in the car seat (it’s removable),  and the top bar is adjustable to fit behind baby’s shoulder blades.  What does this do?  It helps baby sit up straight in their car seats, swings, strollers, etc.

Like this…

Snuggin Go Before & After

That’s a before and after of the same baby in the same stroller without the Snuggin Go (left) and with the Snuggin Go (right).  Wow.  Big difference! 

The Snuggin Go was designed for preemies and term babies from newborn (as little as 4 pounds) all the way up to 1 year.  After 30 pounds, there’s the Snuggin Go Too child seat positioner for toddlers and bigger kids!

Why do you need a Snuggin Go? 

Why do you need a snuggin go?

There’s just no reason to not!  Plus, it’s all completely machine washable!  They even make strap covers to match!

There’s just no excuse for droopiy sleeping babies anymore!  Order your Snuggin Go today, or stop by Sugarfoot’s and pick one up!  At just $34.95, you can’t afford to not!

Have a Snuggin Go and love it?  Tell us about it!  Want to know more?  Ask a question, and we’ll be sure to get back with you!

Introducing Four Seasons

I am so so so very excited about our newest glider line, Four Seasons Furniture!  They started as an adult furniture line specializing in couches & accent chairs and have just recently launched their swivel glider line.  I think what makes me the most excited is their fabrics!  They have over 300 designer fabrics to choose from, and they LOVE special orders for accent cording, patchwork chairs, and even YOUR own fabrics!

I cannot wait to get our chairs on the floor!  I know I’ll be lounging in them daily, but until then, let’s just oogle the pictures for a while, shall we?

This was the very first chair and fabric that I ever saw from Four Seasons, and I absolutely fell in love!  I can’t wait to design a nursery around this lil’ guy!  P.s. Did I mention all of their chairs come with slipcovers?  No, really!  Every single chair you see is a very tailored slipcover with an invisible zipper!  So go crazy with your fabric now and we can always get you another slipcover for another baby or another room!  Spill something?  No worries!  Over half of their fabrics are machine washable and the others you can just take right on down to the dry cleaners!  Now why didn’t I think of that?

So crisp and clean and that piping will get to me everytime!  I think this is one of those chairs you could use in a girl or boy nursery or even in your living room (no grape juice allowed though — but wait… it’s a slip cover, so drink away!)… Hmm… Perhaps I’ll need to order this one for my living room…

This is the Ella Swivel Glider, and if you know anything about me by now, you already know that this one is my favorite.  Sweet and simple with a little elegance thrown in for good measure, this chair would be perfect in one of our Shabby Chic-ness Nurseries, don’t you think?

You can be sure I’m going to let you know when we get these in the store because you absolutely MUST MUST MUST sit down in them!  They’re all made in the USA (North Carolina to be exact!) and the cushions are down-filled and positively dreamy!  You’ll never want another boring ol’ chair after you sit in a Four Seasons chair! 

Oh, and last but certainly not least, all of their swivel gliders are also available stationary (aka: with feet), so if you’re not in the market for a swivel glider, you can get a regular chair, too!

Love your glider?  Tell us why!  Excited to try these chairs out?  Tell us all about it!
