4 Reasons You Can’t Miss the Cincinnati Baby and Beyond Expo
We are the official bakery sponsor of the Cincinnati Baby and Beyond Expo! Why is this event so special to us this year?! Because it’s perfectly timed at just two weeks before one of the 3 Sweet Girls’ due date! We’ll be checking out all of the exhibitors and do a little (or a lot..) of shopping ourselves! Here are a few reasons you won’t want to miss out on this event!
1. It’s a One Stop Shop
We love the Baby and Beyond Expo because it gathers a unique collection of vendors with products that you can’t find just anywhere! This makes it a breeze for parents, grandparents, friends and family to see everything in one easy stop.
From cribs and toys to adorable specialty boutique children’s clothing, it’s the perfect place to find gifts for mom-to-be, birthday presents for little ones, and sweet treats for all of the above!
2. Unique Vendors
The expo is a great opportunity to see vendors that may be new to you and offer specialty, handmade products that you won’t see elsewhere!
A few vendors to be sure to checkout are:
Two Pink Balloons
Christa, of Two Pink Ballons, makes fun and colorful toys that help you engage with your kids and will keep them entertained for hours! Did I mention, she also offers monthly subscription boxes that will come right to your door?! They make great gifts and are so much fun, your kids might not even realize they’re learning while they play.
Crazy Richard’s Peanut Butter
Crazy Richard’s offers natural peanut butter without added salt, sugar and oils. They are committed to building healthier families and communities. Bonus: Their website offers tons of drool-worthy recipes and ideas that definitely caught my attention!
The Red Balloon Play + Cafe
The Red Balloon Play + Café is a great place to visit to relax and eat fresh, healthy food from their café while your kids play. They offer classes and education on all kinds of helpful topics from cloth diapering to babywearing. Not to mention, they have an awesome playroom, offer parties and sell lots of awesome products as well!
Stitches & Sass
Stitches and Sass caught my attention because they make handmade modern accessories for babies AND pets! Their teethers and bibs are adorable and come in so many fun prints. They have gift sets that are perfect for shower presents and as a mom-to-be I was tempted to buy (way too) many of their items.
If you’re not shopping for a baby, take a look at their adorable bowties and pet bandanas for your fur-baby!
3. Great Resources
This expo is packed with resources for both first time parents and those with kids already! You’ll find tips on tons of helpful topics, from nutrition and healthcare to children’s activities in the area and local photographers! There are local doctor’s offices there to answer questions, diaper and formula companies, and even breastfeeding educators. No matter what topic you have questions about, there are vendors there to help!
4. 3 Sweet Girls Cakery is the Bakery Sponsor
What do we bring to the table?! Sweet treats, of course! We’ll have a wide variety of decorated cookies, brownies, cake pops, chocolate dipped pretzels and Oreos, and cake push ups made just for the expo.
We’ll also bring ideas and information about special ordering desserts for any gathering including birthday parties, pregnancy announcements, baby showers, gender reveal parties, and baptisms as well as any other event you could imagine planning!
This year’s event is on September 15th and 16th at the Sharonville Convention Center. We will be there Friday 10am to 5pm and Saturday from 10am-4pm as well as Friday morning for a special VIP hour from 9am-10am! Tickets are $8 for adults. Children 12 and under are FREE! We can’t wait to see you there!
