Bathtime Favorites

Feb 18, 2011 | By Cari Hale
It's been so fun watching all of the boxes unload off the trucks, pile up in the back room and then get opened and unwrapped like a long awaited Christmas gift.

As each new product line comes in the Itty Bitty Bella Girls can't help but ooh and aah over each piece- they're all so little, outrageously adorable and perfect for all the itty-bitties in your life. 

One product in particular we can't get enough of are the hooded bath towels. Each hood features a different animal in a different color. No more trying to decide who used which towel at the end of the day!


Choose from animals hoods that your child adores, and that compliment your bathroom decor.


Small details, such as the Hippo's teeth and coordinating fabrics, and quality craftsmanship will make our hooded towels your favorite go-to bathtime accessory.


The soft, un-dyed 100% natural terry cotton on the inside of the towel is absorbent and comfy- exactly what you need after bathtime. The 100% organic cotton knit exterior is saturated in bold and playful colors to coordinate with the animal hood that is expertly stitched and appliqued.


The 29" square towels are generously sized to keep your itty-bitty warm, cozy and dry from infant to 3 years old.


A variety of animals are available for purchase, so no matter what phase your child is in there will be a design to suite his or her curiosity and creativity!

We can't wait to see what other fun things come out of the loads and loads of boxes we've got piled in the back room right now, and you can be sure we'll let you know what's in store too! But for now, get outside and enjoy the warm, spring-like weather we're experiencing in the Mid-South!

I Wish I May, I Wish I Might...

The Itty Bitty Bella Girls have been busy searching high and low, far and wide to find the ultimate in baby and kids decor, accessories, apparel and gifts. Little did we know when we started that there would be so much to find, explore and most of all, learn! These itty-bitties that we love to coo over need a lot of goods to start out their lives!

As the orders are placed, boxes and boxes arrive, and we begin to map out our (awesome!) displays, we can't help but wonder what it is that you want to see filling Itty Bitty Bella. We have talked with and scoured the brains of mothers and grandmothers that shop with us at Bella Vita, but we know there are a lot more of you out there with a plethora of knowledge when it comes to bringing these little ones into the world- and then raising them up.

We would love to hear your wants and wishes. What is it that you want to see when you set out to decorate the nursery, stock the toy box, outfit the closet and spoil the children in your life?

To get the list started, one thing we have heard so much of over the last year or so from y'all at Bella Vita is that unique bedding- both nursery and child- is so hard to come by. We made it a goal to find unique, practical (machine washable!) yet luxurious bedding for your little ones that would set the tone for your nursery. We have several bedding lines that do just that and more. We know you will be inspired by the array of prints and fabrics to choose from.

Just because we like to tease, here's a sneak peak at a couple crib ensembles you can create at Itty Bitty Bella. Did we mention it's all custom...so you can get exactly what you want at a price that won't leave you feeling invested.

So go ahead, tell us what you want. We take your opinion to heart, so don't be surprised when you see your requests filling our store.

An Itty Bitty Fairytale

Feb 02, 2011 | By Stephanie Singley
Once upon a time…

There once was a girl who had flights of fancy. She enjoyed the loveliest of all things and treasured each one for its beauty and uniqueness. She had big dreams and always wondered where the next one would carry her.

Lo and behold, along her journey she came upon a store named, aptly enough, Bella Vita—the Beautiful Life. It was the perfect way in which she could express her style and share her unique finds with those she loved.

Soon, people were traveling from far and wide to enjoy Bella Vita, and the girl was very happy for a very long time. But all the while an itty-bitty voice inside her kept saying that something was missing to complete this chapter in her story.

And what was that “something”? A new store for little ones—beautiful things for their growing, learning, playing, lovable lives. Unique, must-have things that could not be found anywhere nearby. And so, she began scouring the markets, searching for just the right items to put into this new store—beautiful little items for new babies and young children.

Lucky for us, that itty-bitty voice finally was given a name—on a storefront. And so the next chapter begins—Itty Bitty Bella
.

itty bitty bella

Ah, my friends, if life we’re only as carefree as this fairytale. (It’s the fairytale version of my life, I like to believe!) But then real life wouldn’t be nearly as bountiful and eventful—and what an event we have upcoming.

In early spring, the girls and I at Bella Vita are opening Itty Bitty Bella, a store for the “little beauties” in our lives. It will be located one store down from Bella Vita, in the shop south of Eclectic Eye. Plans are underway to open in March.

The name is in homage to the “itty bitties” we know and love, and to the art of creating beautiful environments where we will watch them play, learn, sleep, eat, smile, explore and grow.

Think classic with a splash of whimsy; quality with a smattering of fashionable fancy. Timeless yet adaptable. Itty Bitty Bella will offer endearing baby shower gifts, exclusive bedding, charming lamps, rugs, art, clothing that will hold up effortlessly, travel and on-the-go-gear, even jewelry for moms who might need a pick-me-up or affirmation every now and then.

Strollers by UPPA Baby and Peg Perego. Cribs by Corsican. Onesies by Kissy Kissy. And so much more. Most everything you could want—and wants for most everything (think gift “wants” and baby-shower registry!)—for your child’s room and life.

Itty Bitty Bella will go beyond the traditional baby and toddler boutique. We like to think of it as a fresh, crisp perspective on products that are already charming in of themselves. We promise, Itty Bitty Bella will have the same warm, enveloping feel as Bella Vita, just with a younger twist.

I guess fairytales really do have happy endings.

So tell your friends, family, even a stranger or two!—the girls and I at Bella Vita are expecting a new arrival this spring. Itty Bitty Bella, welcome to the family.
