Le Viette Dessert Towels Review and Giveaway!

Le Viette giveaway


Dessert Towel review and giveaway

I recently viewed on another blog, one of the cutest and most unique things I have seen in awhile. It looked like a heavenly dessert. I looked around further on their website and found more and more "desserts". Have you heard of Le Viette? If you haven't, you are missing out! These cuties are not desserts at all, but are hand towels, decorated to look like dessert! Quite frankly, they look even more delicious that most real desserts!

I was so excited when I received my very own dessert towel from Le Viette! I received the Strawberry French Toast. My daughter was sure it was a real goodie, and it took all of the strength I had to not tell her, "go ahead - take a bite!"







I really hated to unwrap this, as the packaging was so darling. It is obvious how much time and care goes into each Le Viette creation. Once it was opened, I admired the craftmanship a little more, and then felt the towel on my face - very, very soft!

I took a picture to share with you - here it is displayed in my bathroom...how cute is this?


A little bit about Le Viette from their site:

Le Viette comes from the French word for towel, "Serviette". When indulgences are occasional,
they should be exceptional. Our exquisitely designed towels resemble real desserts.
Each "dessert" is individually prepared by hand with carefully selected materials
and 100% organic cotton towels, ensuring the highest quality.
We cordially invite you to indulge in our dessert towel collection
as a gift, favor, decorative item, and of course, a towel.

Just like any other cotton products, our towels are machine washable in warm water.
Setting your dryer to tumble dry low gives the towels a more fluffy feel.
Avoid the use of bleach or detergents containing bleach.
It is natural for certain colors to intensify or lighten after the initial washing.

All of Le Viette's eco-friendly towels are made from 100% organically grown cottons and bamboo pulps. They are never bleached, treated with chemicals, or other blended products. They are also free of toxic chemicals and pesticides!

The possibilities are endless with Le Viette cake towels. I was thinking how cute they would be for a baby shower gift (now this is a gift that nobody else will be giving!). These would also be perfect to give as party favors for a wedding shower, for baby showers, or even as housewarming favors!

My final thoughts: I absolutely love this company and all of the products they offer. To me, it is always so fun to find something unique and charming...Le Viette certainly fits the bill! I hope you will keep them in mind for future gift giving needs, or even for setting a few out on display for a part of your own!


You can order Le Viette hand rolled towels online at the Le Viette website.
