Nursery Decor & Baby Room Ideas

(First off, congratulations to Ashley, who won the Layla Grayce giveaway!  Thanks to everyone who entered, and Ashley, I’ll be emailing you shortly.)third birthday inspirationWhew, it’s quite a Monday.  Things just aren’t lining up right . . . one of those days.  I’m distracting myself by thinking about Vivi’s third birthday and making happy plans.  It’s going to be sort of a fiesta, with a mash up of some other fun details.  The one definite thing right now is that it will involve cupcakes, which is Vivi’s number one and only request.  (I can’t seem to find the source for that pretty flower arrangement.  I found it on pinterest, and it isn’t linking back correctly – if you know the source, please let me know, and I’ll happily credit it appropriately.)

alice in wonderland baby room ideasI have received quite a few requests for a wonderland inspired room, so here it is!  There are so many fun details you can include, but hopefully this will get you started if this is the direction you want to go.  I love how the natural Rhea crib grounds all the pinks, and how adorable are those bunny lamps?  I added a white shade just to keep things light, but the denim is fun, too.

sitting prettyMy sweet friend, Sara (a special person who came to our house in the middle of the night to keep Vivi when I went into labor with Brigette – forever grateful for that!!), is a talented photographer who will soon be doing studio photography.  She asked if the girls could come in for a little shoot, and I love what she was able to capture!  I had never really considered studio photography, but I really adore these clean photos that showcase the little ones and their expressiveness.  Brigette is such a ball of chubby deliciousness.  I could cuddle her all day!sitting prettySara picked up those darling Oeuf knitted crowns from the Seed Factory (favorite!) before the shoot.  Too much cute.  I’ll definitely be doing something with that top photo of Vivi and Brigette.  It’s like my heart in a picture.  (You can find Vivi’s shirt here.  My mom brought it back from a trip, and it has the most beautiful colors!)sitting prettyAt ease, girls.  There’s my sweet Vivi in her natural state: sucking her thumb and clutching bear.  Thanks so much, Sara, for all this sweetness!  Be sure to check out her site if you’re in Atlanta somewhere and you are interested in a studio shoot!
