Face Painting at Albee Baby

Last weekend we did our fabulous face painting for a fun event at Albee Baby, NYC. and Bugaboo.

All on a beautiful, breezy April weekend in NYC, there were colorful cupcakes, giveaways by Bugaboo, and of course, sparkly face painting!

The most requested face painting designs of the day were Princess crown face painting, Rainbow Cheek art, and trucks!

There were also plenty of butterfly designs, Hello Kitty face painting, and even a request by one little boy to be painted as a “farmer” with freckles!

Albee Baby is a wonderful baby and children’s store on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. As a fellow UWS small business, we were so happy to get to know the great staff at Albee and Bugaboo and recommend that you visit their excellent store and website!
