Personalized Back-to-School Essentials

This week's crafty mom-owned business has your back-to-school essentials packed and ready to go. Keep reading for your Polka Dot Mom coupon to so pretty personalized gifts!

Back-to-school can mean more quick meals on-the-go at your local restaurant too. Here is my new diaper bag essential - a so pretty (and functional) preppy & personalized restaurant napkin clips that turns any napkin into an instant bib! Handmade from start to finish by Megan and Charissa of so pretty, their line of napkin clips can be made to order with your choice of polka dot ribbons, cute embroidered symbols and your child's initial.
These napkin clips will keep your child CLEAN during breakfast every morning. Attach a dish towel to one end of the clip, wrap behind child's neck, then secure the 2nd clip to the towel for a full-coverage breakfast bib. No more cereal milk drops on the clean school shirt. We love that!

Here are your polka dot ribbon choices:

Let me tell you more about the owners - Megan and Carissa are two busy moms, best friends and entrepreneurs who own "monograms by so pretty". These crafty moms do all of their own embroidery and sew their ponytail holders, pacifier clips and restaurant napkin clips (love these). Megan has 7-year-old twins and Carissa has a 9-year-old and a 10-month-old. They have the preppy embroidered gifts you need to keep your school day mornings organized and personalized (they've been there).

The so pretty boutique, which was located in Shrewsbury NJ for several years, housed all things pretty for women and children. It was the perfect spot to pick out a special baby gift, or the perfect accessory for oneself. It didn’t take long to realize that it was our selection of monogrammed gifts that kept people coming back again and again! We purchased our own embroidery machine, and were able to expand our offerings and focus on what we knew was our specialty: helping people choose a truly one-of-a-kind gift."
Megan and Charissa want to give Polka Dot Mom readers a head start on their back-to-school shopping. When you enter coupon code "POLKADOTMOM" at check-out, you will automatically receive 20% off your total purchase through 8/31/07.
