THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED
We’re taking a quick break from my loving lately series to do a giveaway today!!
As many of you know, I LOVE my personalized apron. Several months ago, I was in the market for a cute apron. With all the cooking I do, I definitely needed something to shield my clothes from all the batter and grease splatter! I searched high and low and finally found Love Elaine on Etsy. The owner of the store, Christen Barber, has the most adorable aprons and gifts on there. I immediately fell in love. On top of that, you could personalize it too! I’m ALL about personalization and branding Table for Two all over the place. Since my favorite color is purple, I went for the purple themed apron and it must’ve been fate or something but the personalization font MATCHED my blog logo font EXACTLY!
Christen is the sweetest person, ever, to work with. She is so flexible and SO nice. I even ordered a second apron from her! She helps you pick out the color of thread that would go best with your personalized item and she is very responsive with communication. The second apron I ordered from her had a snag in production and she returned me shipping costs because she felt bad it took me a bit longer to get mine. Her customer service skills are top notch and so are her skills – that’s what keeps me coming back!
If you haven’t seen her work, I highly suggest you go visit Love Elaine, now! You know, with my wedding coming up, I’m thinking now that some of her items (such as the tote bags or clutches) would be ADORABLE personalized bridesmaids gifts that you know they’ll use over and over again. Or, if you know of a bridal shower coming up, you could totally get it personalized with the bride’s new name, “Mrs. Smith” or their new monogram!!
Love Elaine offers handmade, practical luxury items in modern fabrics – perfect for gift giving or a special treat for yourself! Items include aprons, tote bags, home accessories and holiday decor, such as tree skirts and stockings. Love Elaine turns gift giving into an art form for those who want to stray from the registry, as our items want to be given as well as received for birthdays, new brides or holidays. Because, after all, who doesn’t love a handmade, well thought out gift? Love Elaine is truly Love, By Hand.
Christen started Love Elaine when she couldn’t find unique, special gifts to match her style and taste at big-box stores, Christen decided to take matters into her own hands – literally. In 2009, Christen started Love Elaine, a handmade shop that features unique aprons, totes, baby quilts and gifts in bright, modern fabrics. Christen is a self proclaimed “modern Martha” and spends her free time sewing, reading, baking and obsessing over the perfect gift for every occasion, all while working a full-time job in marketing. Fun fact about Christen: her fabric stash is worth more than her shoe collection, proving she doesn’t do anything half-way.
You guys are so lucky because Christen is giving ONE lucky Table for Two reader an apron AND a tea towel set (pictured above)! The winner will receive one (1) yellow and grey tiered apron and one (1) matching yellow and grey tea towel set. This is her most popular apron and color combination!! Personalization is not included but if you want it, you can purchase it for $7 for the apron and $5 for the tea towel!
If you don’t end up winning or are just too excited and want to get your own, Christen is offering Table for Two readers 15% off your purchase in her shop! It is not valid on custom orders but does include personalization on currently listed items. Use code TFT15 at checkout.

Disclaimer: I was neither compensated or given anything for this giveaway. This is all 100% my own opinions and experience with this shop.
