Aprons are useful tools to have in the kitchen. I say tools because they can do quite a lot: protect your clothes, give you a place to wipe your hands or hang a dishtowel, and even provide you with pockets to hold extra spices, spoons and spatulas that you just don’t have room for. And if the apron is cute and fun to wear, that is even better. Flirty Aprons is a company that specializes in cute and – of course – flirty aprons. They have some great patterns to choose from, all with wide fabric belts that tie into a big bow and a beautiful ruffled trim. I recently got to test out one of their most delightful designs: the Frosted Cupcake apron. The apron is made from soft cotton and has a nice strong feel to it. I like the pockets and I love the cut, because these aprons were designed to be flattering. For instance, the ruffle stopped right at my waist, so there was no bunching of extra fabric, and the wide tie makes your waist look slim, not shapeless. And the adorable cupcakes are a nice finishing touch to the whole thing.
This week, I’m giving away the Frosted Cupcake apron pictured above! To enter the giveaway, just leave a comment at the bottom of this post with your favorite frosting flavor - in honor of the frosted cupcakes on the apron. The winner will be chosen randomly on Thursday, January 28th at midnight. Don’t forget to leave your e-mail address when you comment so that I can contact you if you are the winner.
If you don’t win the giveaway, check out some of their other aprons as a gift for yourself or as a fantastic Valentine’s Day gift. Flirty Aprons makes mens and kids aprons, as well. I really like the Cherry Blossom Apron, too, and will be adding that to my own wish list!
